|Fullers -Reg Drury commemorative ale - Very Very Rare||Yes||2018-01-18||$199.00|
Fullers -Reg Drury commemorative ale - Very Very Rare|
Extremely rare Reg Drury commemorative ale for his retirement. A true Collectors item. Fullers produced this commemorative ale when Reg was retiring. It was an extremely limited run and very rare. Please read the collected info below if you do not know who Reg was and what he meant to the brewing world.
May he rest in Pease.
Reg Drury, who has died aged 76, was a passionate supporter of cask beer. His painstaking work as head brewer at Fuller’s in Chiswick, West London, from the 1970s ensured that it was rare to be served a poor pint of the brewery’s beer.
Reg was a great leader of Fuller’s brewing and operations team for 40 years and retired from his position as Brewing Director in 1999.
It’s a truism in the world of brewing and pubs that one glass of cask beer that’s sour and cloudy will put drinkers off for life and lead them into the cold embrace of Eurofizz. Reg was aware of the problem when he arrived at Fuller’s in the late 1950s. He’d trained at the acclaimed school of brewing at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh. He knew not only how to brew beer of all types and styles but was skilled also in maintaining the consistency and quality of the end product. .
It was difficult to achieve consistency at Fuller’s at the time. Brewing had been going on at the site for some 350 years, with the partnership of Fuller, Smith & Turner dating from 1845. Cask beer was produced in open square fermenters, some of which were more than 100 years old and leaked. Finding a clear and tasty pint of Fuller’s cask ale in a pub was something of a gamble. .
This was the dread age of such national keg beers as Watneys Red, Double Diamond and Worthington E. The directors of Fuller’s toyed with the idea of going over entirely to keg and lager production, and in 1976 installed modern, enclosed conical fermenters to make these types of beer. .
It was widely believed in the industry at the time that cask beer couldn’t be brewed in conicals because top-fermenting ale yeast would mutate into bottom-fermenting lager yeast, settling at the base of the vessels. Reg Drury was determined to save Fuller’s cask beers. Along with Charles Wells in Bedford, which had also installed conicals, Reg analysed the new vessels and came to the conclusion that if you adjusted temperatures and regularly used fresh batches of ale yeast it would be perfectly possible to produce cask beer in them. .
I will ship in hard plastic case to protect it.

Salvator - The father of all strong beers and Original Dopplebock
Our brewing history begins with this beer. And the history of strong beer in Bavaria – it was the Paulaner monks, who invented this bottom-fermenting double bock. We have been brewing the Salvator for over 375 years – always according to the original recipe, which was continuously refined over the years: The head is the colour of caramel and the beer is chestnut brown, combined with a seductive flavour of chocolate to give a pleasing intensity on the palate. Hereto comes the finest Munich malt, rounded off by a light note of hops in the background. Often imitated but never duplicated: The father of all double bock beers, of which the names always end in “-ator”!
18,3% original wort and 7,9% alcohol. Salvator is not only our most traditional beer, it is also the strongest. It was originally brewed by the Paulaner monks as a nutritional substitute for their own consumption during Lent to compensate for their sometimes demanding fasting ritual. The high quality and exceptionally good taste not only kept morale high among the monks, but also inspired young and old to new heights. Despite this, the monks were officially obliged to serve the Salvator only after the Regent Prince Karl Theodor had tried and was convinced and immediately approved a sample in 1780. Following this ancient tradition of the Paulaner monks, we celebrate the first barrel of strong beer to be opened at the Nockherberg in the springtime. Of course, even today, the first sample beer is reserved for the Minister President of Bavaria. The political elite attends the festivities, despite the biting satirical impersonations of prominent politicians, which are a tradition there. This special beer makes it worthwhile for them. It is served true to style in Keferloher ceramic mugs or “Steins”, and tastes malty with a fine balance of sweetness and fruity flavours, making this Ur-Paulaner speciality ideal to enjoy with equally intense dishes, for example duck with damson sauce.
