Fuller’s history of the Griffin Brewery for just £5.00
Fuller’s brewery, based by Hogarth roundabout, is part of the fabric of Chiswick. As their new book on the history of the Griffin brewery by Adrian Tierney-Jones says, the inhabitants of Chiswick have been brewing their own beer at home since at least the Middle Ages, but from 1588, the year of the Spanish Armada, there is evidence of commercial brewing from the site which is now the Griffin Brewery.
This glossy coffee table book, with lots of lovely photographs and interviews with the company’s key people, tells the story of a family business which has grown into a multi million pound concern. It costs £25, but to you, dear Club Card holders, the cost is £5.00 if you come and pick up your copy from the Fuller’s shop, just behind the Maswon’s Arms on the Hogarth roundabout between 1st and 29th March. Brandishing your Club Card of course.
And if you haven’t already done it, the tour of the brewery is fascinating, and free to Club Card holders.
