Food Pairing

Copperwheat with Black Bean Burritos

Beers made with wheat can be incredibly versatile when it comes to pairing alongside food and Copperwheat, a ‘Kristal Weissbier’ – or clear wheat beer - is no exception. Copperwheat drinks comfortably alongside the smoke and spice of big flavours like coriander, chilli, cumin and lime, and cuts through the heaviness of the black beans with ease, refreshing the palate and leaving you ready for another tasty mouthful.
Or if you want to try it with something less spicy, how about pairing it with a big bowl of pesto pasta or baked bananas in a rum and orange sauce.

Covid-19 Notice

As a result of the ongoing Coronavirus (Covid 19) pandemic we have taken the difficult decision to scale back our operations at Harvey's.

We are brewing, of necessity, to reproduce and preserve our unique yeast strain - so the familiar smell of hops and malt may still drift across the town on occasions. Hopefully we will be able to store and, eventually, bottle the resultant brews.

The Brewery Shop is closed until further notice. Our online shop may have a limited selection of stock added when available, please check back for updates.

If you have any questions about orders please email shop@harveys.org.uk, and we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as we can.

Some Harvey's pubs are still operating as community hubs, and we recommend that you contact any individual pubs directly to see if they are continuing their initiatives.

Please keep safe, and continue to do your part by following Government guidelines.

Our sincerest thanks to all of you once again for your support.
