Armada Ale

(Available all year)

Armada Ale was one of the first new ‘Golden Ales’ that emerged in the 1980s. It has a pronounced yet balanced hop character, derived from Fuggle and Golding hops. Originally commissioned by the National Maritime Museum, it quickly established itself
as a piece of living history. Robust, refreshing and still a port of call in any beer-drinker’s voyage of discovery.

Cask Ale is also known as cask-conditioned beer or real ale. It’s not pasteurised and is very much alive; the brewer’s yeast is still active – conditioning the beer from a fining bed (or lees) at the bottom of the cask.

This conditioning takes the form of natural carbonation which has a much more subtle stimulation of the taste sensors than artificially added gases used to dispense keg beers from pressurised containers.

Harvey’s Brewery also produce a range of Seasonal Draught Brews – each available for roughly a month. Trade customers should note that due to popular demand, pre-orders are advisable on all Seasonal Draught Brews and to purchase the Armada Ale, IPA, Sussex Mild or Olympia to contact our Lewes shop.

Harvey’s Brewery is best known for the following cask ales produced for the pubs in Southern England.
