Ross Kendrick, the owner of Bacchus Brewing in Australia, visited Harvey's today where he was then whisked off to the hop gardens in Sussex.
From reproducing classic favourites, developing house brews and creating 'one off' beers for their own brewery bar, Bacchus Brewing are not afraid to push boundaries within the beer industry. On average they are even brewing three brand new beers every week!
Ross visited the hop gardens with Mike Glen, a fellow countryman and Brewer, who is spending two years with Harvey's whilst sitting his Institute of Brewery and Distilling exams.
Green hops were returned to the Brewery at Lewes in time for the Southdown Harvest worts to be cast onto them in the hop back.
The resultant beer will be in trade during September.
As a result of the ongoing Coronavirus (Covid 19) pandemic we are now operating with a scaled back team Harvey's.
We are still brewing, and reproducing and preserving our unique yeast strain - so you may find the familiar smell of hops and malt drifting across the town. These brews are currently being put into bottle, mini-kegs, and polypins.
Please contact 01273 480209 and we are happy to take your order - due to the current status of operations we are only able to offer a pre-payment service.
Head to our online shop to order a limited range of our beers. Stock is replenished each day (mon- fri).
Select Click and Collect, or UK mainland delivery is available.
The Brewery Shop is closed until further notice.
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.
