Fuller's has a rich and lengthy history dating back to the 1600's. It was a humble start and was not void of mishaps but after being passed through many hands, John Fuller came along. He was sought to help the brewery in more than just a financial sense as they had purchased the Griffin Brewery site and now needed to build some real momentum. John Fuller died in 1839 and the controls were passed to his son, John Bird Fuller. John Bird Fuller was fast paced in making an impact as he took the reigns himself and outsourced investment and financial expertise.
A little further down the line a trio was established: Fuller, Smith and Turner. This lead to an extensive list of private customers and the beginning of an expansion of the beer offering. The beer range would continue to grow with famous London Pride gaining recognition in the 1950's and the Griffin Brewery continuing to create esteemed brews.
