Artwork

Featuring a rugby ball in honour of the Six Nations tournament this is brewed in time for. Created by local Lewes artist, Malcolm Trollope-Davis.

About

Maris Otter malted barley and four varieties of English aroma hops combine to produce a balanced beer with a lingering dry finish.

ORIGIN

It is easy to convert drinkers to this 3.5% very moreish bitter, which is named Forward’s Choice in honour of local and national Rugby clubs.

Food Pairing

Forward's Choice and Fish 'n' Chips

I don't think there are many Pale Ales that stand up quite like this one. It's the perfect example of knowing when you've got a good thing and you understand the centuries of craft. 
A great hit of lightly toasted malt followed by notes of orange peel, caramel and passing background bitter, grassy notes.

The lightness makes it a perfect friend of good old fish and chips and it sits perfectly with the crispy golden batter, flaky fish and salty chips. It quickly takes away any oily palate feel and refreshes with every glug.

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.
