F5 is simply an IPA lovers dream. The mild malt body and hop-forward bouquet of Amarillo and Simcoe hop additions impart citrus, grapefruit and pine notes characteristic of the West Coast style. F5 is truly a force to be reckoned with.
1845 Celebration Ale is a true landmark in British beer history. Although brewing dates back to 1654 at Griffin Brewery on the banks of the River Thames, the partnership of Fuller, Smith And Turner was formed in 1845. In 1995, to commemorate the company’s 150th anniversary, Fuller’s commissioned special, celebration bottled ale. 1845 was the result. A more auspicious beginning the brew could not have had; the inaugural beer’s hops were added to the copper by none other than HRH Prince of Wales, during a royal visit to Fuller’s!
Its launch was so successful that 1845 has quickly become the number one bottle conditioned brand in the UK take-home market and is currently the UK market leader among all bottle conditioned beers.
1845 Celebration Ale is a highly acclaimed strong ale and the winner of numerous awards including the CAMRA Champion Bottle Conditioned Beer of Britain (1998-1999 and 2002) and the British Bottle Institute’s award for the Best Dressed Bottle (1996). 1845 was also honored with a Silver medal at the 2003 CAMRA Great British Beer Festival in the bottle conditioned beer category.
We like to think this is an ale for everyone who believes you make your own luck. We sure did. And the result is a well-balanced, soulful IPA with just the right amount of hoppiness. An even keeled ale that goes down clean and refreshing, but still lets you know it’s been doted on by the Brewmaster. It’s true to it’s IPA heritage, but also highly drinkable. Lucky U. And we seriously mean that.

Two words describe winter in our neck of the woods… cold, dark, and snowy. Just the way we like it! At 7.2% ABV, Powder Hound Winter Ale gives just the right amount of warmth, balanced by its rich taste and generous dose of Hallertau, Palisade, and Amarillo hops.
