We have joined forces with The Hearth Pizzeria to celebrate Christmas in the form of a unique mince pie.
Taking a secret family recipe, handed down by the grandfather of The Hearth’s owner, Michael Hanson, they used our Christmas ale to add a uniqueness of flavour to the mincemeat that can’t be rivalled.
“When I first tried the Christmas Ale, I knew its rich and fruity flavours would work wonders on my granddad’s recipe, so immediately went over to see Harveys about working together. As well as the Harveys’ beer, the homemade mincemeat includes locally scrumped apples, and local flour. Plus, every pie is hand made, in the old fashioned way,” said Michael Hanson.
“We believe in working with local businesses, so when Michael came to us suggesting that we celebrated the season with mince pies using our own Christmas Ale and his family recipe, we jumped at the opportunity, especially after trying them, and immediately placed an order.” stated Adam Bagnall, Manager of Harveys Brewery Shop, Lewes.
The pies are handmade in small batches at The Hearth and are now available from both establishments, with the official launch taking place at Lewes Late Night Shopping on Thursday 4th December. We advise you to pre-order due to high demand – please contact our brewery shop on 01273 480 217.
