Food Pairing

Sussex Best Bitter with Butter Chicken Curry

Harvey’s Sussex Best is full of character which is down to the perfectly blended combination of the four fine hops and two malts.

It’s full of caramel and chocolate with background notes of orange peel and a palette refreshing subtle bitterness that pairs perfectly with a big punchy curry. Try it with butter chicken or a spicy beef madras. It also sits perfectly with the hot, sour and sweet flavours of Thai and Vietnamese dishes.

All in all a cracking drop of drink.
