Fuller's beer celebrates three centuries of Ascot

28 April, 2011

London brewer Fuller, Smith & Turner has created a special golden ale to help Ascot Racecourse celebrate its 300th birthday.

The limited-edition Ascot Tercentenary Ale is available nationally in Budgens, regionally in selected supermarkets including Waitrose, and Ascot Racecourse itself. Only 30,000 bottles will be produced.

The 5% abv beer is bottle conditioned and brewed with hedgerow Sovereign hops.

Sales director Richard Fuller said: “There are not many racecourses that could celebrate a 300th birthday, so we are delighted to help Ascot Racecourse mark theirs.

“We are very proud of our heritage and would like to think of this partnership as a bit of a nod from one truly English icon to another.”

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
