Beer has been brewed on the site of the Griffin Brewery in Chiswick for over 350 years, since the time of Oliver Cromwell. The partnership of Fuller, Smith & Turner was formed in 1845 by John Bird Fuller, Henry Smith and John Turner. Members of all three founding families are still involved in the business to this day.

Fullerís is best known as the brewer of London Pride, the UKís leading premium cask ale, but also brews many other award-winning ales such as Chiswick Bitter, ESB and 1845. Three of Fullerís beers - London Pride, ESB and Chiswick Bitter - have been named as the Champion Beer of Britain, a record unmatched by any other brewer. Fullerís ale range now also includes Discovery, a blonde beer launched in 2005 to wide acclaim.

Also in 2005, Fullerís completed the purchase of George Gale & Co., of Horndean, Hampshire, brewers of beers such as HSB, Butser and Prize Old Ale. The purchase included 111 pubs, bringing Fullerís estate to 363 quality pubs, bars and hotels.
