Fragrant hop flavours impart a full but delicate bitterness to this classic table beer.
Light and refreshing with a grassy and earthy hop aroma.

India Pale Ale is brewed to a lower original gravity and undergoes a similar process of maturation to the Sussex Best. A fragrant hop character, derived from a blend of Fuggle and Progress hops, gives a full but delicate bitterness.
IPA was once a mainstay brand of traditional breweries. Referred to as ‘ordinary bitter’ by way of differentiation, there is little that is ordinary about it. Premium malted barleys and local aroma hops combine to create this refreshing IPA.
Every spicy dish needs a partnering beer with a gentle bitterness to balance out all of the heat. A tasty chicken or vegetable madras that puts chilli, coriander, cumin, and turmeric together in a tomato base coating tender pieces of chicken is the way to go. It is a supper for conversation; for friends around the table. And the IPA is necessary, both for balance and to simply keep it social.

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 email@example.com, 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.
