Fuller's Georgina Young


Fullers brewing manager, Georgina Young, in the brewhouse at Sierra Nevada

The Red Lion, Barnes, in London, is to stage an exclusive tasting of Stateside Pride Ale in Friday (September 9) at 7pm. The event will be hosted by Fuller’s brewing manager, Georgina Young.

Fuller’s Stateside Pride Ale is based on one of the original London Pride recipes. Taken from old brewing books at Fuller’s, this recipe dates back to 1955. This brew includes British hops (Goldings and Fuggles). A special culture of Fuller’s yeast was also propagated and flown to the USA in time for this brew.

Fuller’s teamed up with Sierra Nevada’s brewing team to create this new beer at the Mills River Brewery in North Carolina, USA (the home of Sierra Nevada). Georgina joined forces with Sierra Nevada brewers Scott Jennings (head brewer) and Matt Ruzich.

Stateside Pride Ale is a limited edition beer, available in cask and keg. There are only a handful of barrels left, so The Red Lion, Barnes, tasting is a must for aficionados.
