Fuller's has announced the release of a new serve in honour of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this summer.

Available at Fuller’s pubs from June, the company’s Platinum Jubilee Ale (4.7% ABV) is a premium malty amber ale offering notes of fruitcake, blackberries, and a hint of spice, dry hopped with British Sovereign hops.

Fuller's Griffin Brewery head brewer Guy Stewart said: “Appropriately, this limited edition beer features Sovereign Hops and was developed by one of my team, Anthony Smith who was keen to mark this historical occasion with an extra special brew.

"We’re thrilled with the results and hope Cask Beer fans will be too.”

However, Fuller’s ​have not been the only business to release new offerings in honour of her Majesty’s 70-year reign.

Award-winning cider makers Sandford Orchards​ has today (Friday 13 May) released a new brew for the Jubilee, Sandford’s Jubilee Limited Edition Devon Red Cider (4.5% ABV).

Milestone year 

Sandford Orchards chief cidermaker Barny Butterfield said: “2022 is a milestone year for Britain as the Queen completes 70 years on the throne and, after a couple of years of Covid restrictions, we are at last able to gather together for some long overdue celebrations.

“Why would you toast the Queen’s health with French champagne when you can raise a glass of 100% British cider?

“No Jubilee parties will be complete without [Jubilee Limited Edition Devon Red Cider].”

This comes as last month saw Home Secretary Priti Patlel confirm plans for pubs to have extended opening hours​, until 1am, over the June bank holiday.

Special occasion

Brewers Shepherd Neame​, which holds Royal Warrants for its Grants Morella Cherry Brandy and flagship Spitfire Amber Ale, has also released a celebratory brew.

The company’s English Ale (4.8% ABV) will be available on draught at a selection of its pubs throughout Kent, London, and the south-east during the Jubilee bank holiday weekend from Thursday, 2 June to Sunday, 5 June.

Shepherd Neame chief executive Jonathan Neame said: “We have always supported the Queen’s Jubilees with a special beer and are delighted to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee with this Celebration Ale.

“We hope our customers will enjoy raising a glass to toast this very special occasion.”
