ORIGIN

Food Pairing

Elizabethan Ale and a Ploughman's

There is patience here and it makes for a really complex dark full bodied ale with a real depth of flavour.
The sweet bouncy malt and savoury finish makes it perfect for a big traditional ploughman's or plate of strong cheese and dry smoked ham.

There's a rich sweetness that could mellow a bold blue cheese and would most certainly lift a smokey plate of barbecued meats.

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.
