Cheers! Fuller's award-winning London Pride. Brewed just a couple of miles from where I grew up and arguably London's most famous real ale. Delicious and the first tipple I have whenever I return to the UK. Alongside Marston's Pedigree it is the 'other' ale I grew up with!! Could do with a drop now.....!!!
The origins of Porter date back to London in the early eighteenth century, and the beer has seen fame around the world, from Ireland to the USA and Australia. It was the dominant beer style in London for quite some time, and takes its name from the street and river porters of the city who carried goods around the streets.
