Chiswick Bitter is a lower-strength ale produced by London's oldest family brewer, Fuller's. The beer takes its name from the area of London where Fuller's has been based since 1845.
At just 3.5% ABV, Chiswick Bitter is a fresh, flowery and sessionable ale known for its strong hop characteristics. It is brewed with Northdown and Challenger hop varieties, with extra Goldings hops added to the cask after fermentation to add to the flavour and aroma (a process known as dry hopping).
In 1999, the brewing team at Fuller's further refined the brewing process so that the beer settles more compactly when poured. Sold on draught in most of Fuller's tied houses, Chiswick Bitter is also available in 500ml bottles.
History and awards
Chiswick Bitter was first brewed at Fuller's in the 1930s. Gaining popularity throughout the decades, it was named CAMRA's Beer of the Year in 1989.  Fuller's has also won the title with London Pride and ESB, making it the only brewery in England to take the award with three separate brews. All three are brewed together at the Griffin Brewery in Chiswick, using the old Victorian brewing method known as Parti-Gyle.
