    So easy to get your favourite tipple on draft in your own home. Simple to order and pay for and always delivered on time. The beer once settled, is as expected, just first class.

    A great way to enjoy the finest beer in the land at home!

    As someone not from Sussex – I stumbled upon Harveys by chance and discovered England’s finest beer in a London and Kent. Having gone to enormous lengths to try and find it all over the land – from my East Midlands base – I find myself ordering a polypin and the result…..?


    Great communication by Harveys team – the beer was delivered bang on time, and with clear guidance notes dispensed to absolute perfection. Drain off a little if need be, store it at a slight angle for 24 hours before dispensing, and vent as well before pouring a beer that will literally make you dance around the room in delight. I do recommend that you plan beforehand where to store it and keep it cool NOT cold. Best beer in England! From a proud Scot!

    to Chris Norton… As a resident of East Sussex I have often seen people doing just as you say, dancing around the room, having consumed Harvey’s Best, it’s quite the hazard of drinking it. Pubs on the border with other breweries have a hard time selling their ales when Harvey’s is nearby.

    I’ve twice ordered this to drink over the Xmas break and it’s been great both times. Only concern is whether this is big enough next year, or whether to go for a barrel!

    I ordered a polypin of Best to be sent to my Christmas destination of Somerset as a treat for my father-in-law (and maybe a couple for myself, after all a man is not a camel), and it arrived on time and in pristine condition. If you’ve never tried Harveys Best then you won’t be disappointed, I’ve been drinking it since 1986 and the flavour gets me every time.

    We were to have a party in Mid-late December 2014 and the Polypin arrived exactly when specified. Sadly, the party had to be postponed and was rescheduled for mid January. Slightly worried, I called The Shop and they advised how it should be kept and vented. Did as suggested and, on the day, the Best Bitter was magnificent – not a drop left at the end of the do (well, one pint for me next day).

    Thank you Harveys for this great beer which does travel so well.

    Sussex born and bred (and exceptionally biased). This is by far the finest bitter in Britain!

    Excellent customer service. Good communication by email with the online team to sort out the details of delivery. Could have been tricky, was in fact completely painless. Delivered in good time to settle, cracking stuff.

    I have enjoyed Harveys Best polypins on a couple of previous occasions and will be having another for my upcoming 60th (July 2015). An exceptional bitter as good as any pub or beer festival, my preferred bitter of choice.

    Ideal for parties at home. As good as drinking it in the local

    I write as a southerner in exile, having been born and raised in Kent and Sussex, it was only natural that I would regard Harveys Sussex Best as the Britain’s best beer, but I am not merely geographically biased, I am just right, for once.

    Moving away to the badlands of the Welsh Marches I thought that I would be forced to miss out on my fair share of my nectar of choice, but fortunately I was wrong. I ordered a polypin of Harveys best, delivery was very reasonable in addition to the good value of the product, and it was delivered next day. I let it settle and prepared to pour pints of perfection, which I did.

    The beer lasts a decent amount of time and I am pleased to be able to say that everyone with whom I have shared a drop of Harveys has been equally enthusiastic about the brew. Just the right amount of bitterness and an abundance of flavour mean that I am delighted to be able to continue this type of missionary work.
