A complex beer with aromas of leather, chocolate and liquorice, with a lingering taste.

Prince of Denmark is a strong, dark beer of great complexity and depth. Brown, amber and black malts are mixed with pale ale malts to give this beer its strong aroma and colouring.
It is based on traditional recipes from the 18th Century but has also been described as an ‘Imperial Stout Nouveau’. As complex as Shakespeare's eponymous hero of which the label is derived.
As dark as a Shakespearean thicket of woods on a moonless night, with an equally impenetrable sense of darkness surging out of the glass — think treacle toffee, mocha coffee, milk chocolate and a smokiness suggestive of a bonfire several fields away.
Take a sip and it’s more chocolate, coffee, treacle, ripe dark plums and caramel whirling around a creamy mouth feel before its dry, bittersweet finish.
A dessert beer, served alongside an apple pie whose soft sweetness and slight acidity would happily accompany the deep, dark flavours of the beer.
Also try with Tiramisu or raspberry cheesecake.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
