Two Golds for Harvey's at London & South East Champion Beer of Britain Competition 2019.

Harvey’s are excited to reveal that they have been the recipients of two gold awards and a joint silver award at the CAMRA London & South East Champion Beer of Britain Competition 2019.

The awards bestowed were as follows:

•   Sussex Best Bitter was judged Gold in the Bitter Category

•   Sussex XX Mild Ale (Dark Mild) was judged Gold in the Mild Category

•   Imperial Extra Double Stout was judged Joint Silver in the Real Ale in a Bottle Category

The finals of the area competition took place after a year of beer tastings, tasting panels and nominations. Successful beers are submitted from these into the style final and are conventionally judged by a panel made up of journalists, fellow brewers, and, of course, a few CAMRA members.

“Over the centuries, the company has experienced some ‘bittersweet’ moments and this is the very best of them.” Miles Jenner, Harvey's Head Brewer.

Our thanks to CAMRA and its members for their nominations, and well done to our excellent team at the brewery who make this all possible.

Covid-19 Notice

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, 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.
