Taking delivery and storage
As part of any delivery process, the liquid and sediment in the bottle will have been disturbed during transit. It is important that you let the bottle stand on its base for at least 72 hours before opening it.
If you plan to store the bottles to enjoy in later years, you should store them upright to ensure any settling happens at the bottom of the bottle. It will also be ready to drink whenever you wish. Store your Vintage Ale in a cool, dry place where the temperature will not drop below 2oC or go above 25oC.
How to enjoy your
We recommend that your Vintage Ale is served at cellar temperature (11-13oC) in a wide rimmed glass that allows you to enjoy the aromas as you sip it. The Fuller’s Connoisseur Glass has been designed for this, but a large wine glass is a suitable alternative.
Make sure that you’ve allowed the bottle to settle upright for at least 72 hours if it has been transported recently. Open the bottle and pour the beer slowly into a glass held at an angle. Slowly straighten the glass as you pour. To avoid sediment entering the glass, stop pouring before reaching the bottom of the bottle. If you prefer a smaller head on your beer, wet the inside of the glass before pouring.
Enjoy your Vintage Ale either on its own, or to accompany warming winter dishes such as stews or pies. It is also an excellent alternative to port when eating cheese. We think its best enjoyed with friends and family, with some customers maintaining a tradition to taste a range of Vintage Ales at Christmas. However you choose to drink your Vintage Ale, we hope you enjoy it.
