Fullers tackles the on-trade with Front Row

Fuller’s has launched a new rugby-themed seasonal ale called Front Row for UK pub-going sports fans. The 3.7% abv beer is available in selected Fuller’s pubs, where it’s supported by posters and strut cards.

Anyone who buys a pint of Front Row will also be able to enter a text-to-win competition for merchandise from Phil Vickery’s Raging Bull brand.

The new beer joins Gales’ Swing Low on the London brewer’s seasonal beer list.
