ORIGIN

The style 'Imperial Russian Stout' and the name 'Albert Le Coq' are synonymous.  In the early 1800's the Belgian A. Le Coq exported Imperial Stout from England to Russia and the Baltic area. Our Stout is regarded as one of the World’s most unusual and prestigious beers.

ABOUT

We only brew Imperial Stout once every nine months and then age it for 18 months. The recipe contains a dense concentration of varied malts and hops to produce a bottle conditioned stout of 9.0% ABV. 

IN THE SHOP

Imperial Extra Double Stout is available throughout the year in our Brewery Shop in 275ml bottles.
Sweet Sussex Stout 275ml

Elizabethan Ale 275ml

Food Pairing

Imperial Extra Double Stout and Apple Crumble

Imperial Extra Double Stout has huge dark flavours with plenty of tannins. Tannins are compounds that attract fat & protein and clear the palate. That will work beautifully for the game pie and Mushroom Wellington where the big earthy, roasted coffee flavours of the beer stand their ground with the full flavour and texture of the food.

With the apple crumble, the dark fruit, liquorice and tang of the beer complements the flavour of the pudding. 

Best food matches: Game Pie, Mushroom Wellington, Apple Crumble

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.
