Environmental Credentials

Harveys green credentials

  • The use of locally grown hops and barley
  • The ground extraction of our spring water
  • The zero levels of effluent discharge into the neighbouring river
  • The tower brewery configuration maximising gravity, minimising pumping.

Even more important..boreholeillustration

  • The return to local agriculture of all by-products, such as spent hops for mulch fertiliser or spent grains as cattle feed.
  • Energy saving devices such as our heat exchanging paraflows which minimise the boiling of water from cold for mashing.

Most relevant to our Carbon Footprint..

  • Harveys returnable packaging: both casks and bottles are returned to the brewery for washing and reuse. 
  • Short range supply: 80% of Harveys beer is consumed no more than 50 miles from Lewes. We have turned away trade if it’s too far away.
