PRODUCT GUIDE

UK BREWER OF THE YEAR


CORE RANGE

Harvey’s core cask ales are six distinct beers we produce all year round,

or in the case of Old Ale six months of the year.

CRAFTING BEER

FOR 230 YEARS

Welcome to Harvey’s Brewery, our heritage site has

been an iconic figure nestled amongst the Lewes

skyline since 1790. John Harvey established his

business ‘Harvey and Son (Lewes) Ltd’ in Sussex’s

County Town and the company remains to this day

independent and still in family hands. Now in their

eighth generation, five descendants of John Harvey

work here today.

82% of customers want a

nationally recognised cask brand

on the bar. The implication is that

trusted brands deliver consistency

Cask Report 2019

We are renowned for our Sussex Best Bitter but as you’ll

find in this product guide, we also produce an additional

26 cask ales, five keg products, mini kegs, cans and bottles. We

supply a range of lagers from major brewers, and having also

been wine merchants since 1794, you will discover our exclusive

selection of wines complimentary to our beers.

This is an exciting time for beer and with consumer tastes for

local, sustainable, independent brands growing, how we produce

our beer aligns us with these values. Traditional brewing continues

the way it always has been at Harvey’s, using hand-crafted

methods that our brewers from the 18th century would recognise

today. How we brew has always naturally lent us to working

collectively with the environment and local agriculture. A time

honoured partnership which is beneficial for everyone involved,

from the dairy herds at Plumpton College to Allotment nurseries

in Barcombe.

The Harvey’s team consists of 100 local workers which includes

brewers and bottlers, draymen and sales staff, all offering a

personal and knowledgeable service so we can make sure as a

customer, you are getting everything you need from us to help

you run your businesses.

Only as good as our last pint, we continue to innovate

to produce the best quality beers possible. We hope you enjoy

the brochure and please get in touch should you

have any queries.

Harvey’s Sussex Best is full

of character which is down

to the perfectly blended

combination of the four fine

It’s full of caramel and chocolate with

background notes of orange peel and a palette

refreshing subtle bitterness that pairs perfectly

with a big punchy curry. Try it with butter

chicken or a spicy beef madras. It also sits

perfectly with the hot, sour and sweet flavours

of Thai and Vietnamese dishes.

All in all a cracking drop of drink.

Roast Beef Sandwich

and Old Ale

Mahogany-red in colour,

this veteran beer style

has dried fruit, currants,

sultanas and suggestions of

milk chocolate on the nose.

There is dried fruit, a hint of

chocolate and caramel on the palate, as

well as a vinous hint in the background. It has a

medium-bodied mouth feel allied to a smooth

creaminess and an appealing (but not cloying)

sweetness. Instead of a mid afternoon cup of tea,

try a glass with Madeira cake, where the beer’s

character acts as an extra ingredient.

Also try with a roast beef sandwich but with

piccalilli instead of mustard; or put half a pint in a

beef stew and drink the rest alongside.

BREWING THE

BEST BEER

Malt, water, yeast and hops are the fundamental

ingredients for brewing today, but how Harvey’s operates,

where we source our ingredients, and where our

by-products go, are what make our beers distinct.

The brewery building was designed in such a way as to

aid the brewing process, this seemed logical at the time of

construction, and even now being gravity fed allows us to

save energy from not using pumps to assist in production.

At Harvey’s we start a brewing day by pouring sacks of malt

into our mill, crushing it to a fine grist and exposing the starch

in the grain; this is needed to be broken down into the sugars

that our yeast will feast on during fermentation.

MALT: Our malt is sourced from Maltsters in

East Anglia, UK. Our contracts are set years

in advance so we can guarantee a continued

supply of the finest malt for our beers.

The malt grist and water (liquor) are released into our

Mash Tuns where the exposed starches from the grist are

isothermally mashed, kept at a single temperature. This

process enables enzymes in the malt to convert from starch

into sugar, creating a sugar solution known as ‘wort’.

WATER: Rainfall which has filtered over the

Sussex chalk downs is drawn from our artesian

well up into the liquor reservoir in the Harvey’s

Tower. Our own water supply is important as

it gives our beers a unique flavour, and our

own source will preserve Harvey’s brewing for

generations to come.

The yeast; a living single celled microorganism, is added

to the wort and it will feed on the fermentable sugars,

converting them to alcohol. Over the course of the following

week the yeast continues to ferment and replaces the

sugars with alcohol and Carbon dioxide, creating beer!

OUR YEAST: For over half a century we have

fermented our beers using a yeast strain

which is now unique to us. The crop from each

week’s brewing is re-pitched into the following

weeks. We believe our yeast contributes to

approximately 50% of our final beer flavour.

The resulting brew is sent off for preparation and then

racked, kegged, canned or bottled by the Harvey’s Brewing

team to present a traditional, handmade, lovingly crafted

beer to our customers.

OLYMPIA

ORIGIN

First produced in 2005 to celebrate our major

FOOD PAIRING

Olympia with Chocolate Dessert

and Olympia Infused Ice Cream

In the final of MasterChef I wanted to put

together a chocolate dessert with a rich ice

cream that would soften the bitter chocolate.

The golden ale ice cream came to life and it

was a real winner. I tried several golden ales

but the Olympia had a burst of summer and

when I popped the cap there was a distinct hit

of pineapple, grapefruit and even a touch of

bubblegum.

Served chilled this is a versatile easy drinking

ale that pairs with rich desserts, but also just as

well as fresh shellfish and Mediterranean food

such as saffron rich Paella.

It’s also great with spicy foods

and is extremely quaffable.

A great beer.

Kenny Tutt:

Masterchef Champion

and Restaurateur.

The converted ‘wort’ gets transferred into one of two

Coppers in our Copper House. A Copper is a very large

kettle like vessel. This is when our locally sourced whole

hops are added to the brew to contribute flavour,

bitterness, and aroma. The mixture is then boiled and

cooled before heading to our fermenting tuns.

LOCAL WHOLE HOPS: We use local whole

hops from Sussex, Kent and Surrey, placing

contracts with local farms years in advance to

ensure an ongoing supply. Our partnerships

with our hop growers span many years, and we

believe it is important to commit and invest in

our local suppliers.

At this point in the process leftover ‘spent’ hops from the

Coppers are filtered into a hop back. They are shoveled

out and collected for distribution to local allotments

and nurseries; the same as our spent grains which go to

Plumpton Agricultural College to feed their cows.

The fermenting tuns are where the beer evolves and

alcohol is created. This begins after we pitch our unique

yeast strain, skimmed from a previous brew, in with the

now cooled wort.

IPA was once a mainstay brand of traditional

Every spicy dish needs a partnering beer with a

gentle bitterness to balance out all of the heat.

A tasty chicken or vegetable madras that puts

chilli, coriander, cumin, and turmeric together in

a tomato base coating tender pieces of chicken

is the way to go. It is a supper for conversation;

for friends around the table. And the IPA is

necessary, both for balance and to simply keep

it social.

as the brewer, has the biggest part to play in the

condition and sale of cask ale. We want customers

to receive the very best that cask can offer.

Facts from Cask Report (2019)

• In July 2018 50% of pubs without

1790 The name of Harvey has long

been associated with the supply of

beers, wines and spirits in Sussex.

Records of the 1790’s recall the delivery

of Old Red Port, Sherry and Claret in

Lewes and its surrounding villages.

1820 John Harvey started brewing

as a seasonal sideline activity in Bear

Yard, opposite the current brewery.

With his sons, Henry, Edwin and

William, he acquired the current Bridge

Wharf Site in 1838 for the price of

£3,100 and developed “Harvey & Son”.

1859 Henry Harvey brewed Porters,

Stouts and strong Mild Ales for

distribution among 17 family owned

public houses in Sussex. These were

prosperous days for enterprising

brewers.

1899 Harvey’s experience business

setbacks in the shadow of many other

contemporary brewing companies

such as Watneys, Charrington and

Whitbread.

1928 Alice May Harvey Smith

(fourth generation) is elected

Harvey’s first Chairperson. She

and her sisters make two crucial

appointments; their nephew

Eric Carlyon Rundle, and in 1938,

Anthony Jenner a fourth-generation

brewer from R & H Jenner’s Brewery,

South London.

1952 Harvey’s wins first award for

XXXX on Draught (Old Ale)

1957 Harvey’s receive yeast from

Tadcaster Brewery after the breakdown

of the Pure Yeast Company. This same

yeast strain, 3000 generations later, is

still used today.

1960 Catastrophic Floods leave

Cliffe High Street under water for

nearly a week, the brewery carries

on despite severe disruption to

production.

1996 A fire devastates the brewery.

Offices were temporarily moved to

what is now the John Harvey Tavern.

The brewery was restored in 1998 but,

many important and historical files

were lost to the fire.

2000 Another flood in Lewes deluges

the brewery. Harvey’s were told that

the brewery wouldn’t be up and

running again for nine months due

to the damage, but were back and

brewing in nine days.

2002 Audrey Elder becomes

Chairperson succeeding Anthony

Jenner. Adele Smith (niece of Audrey)

and Julia Prescott (daughter of

Audrey) sit on the company’s Board

of Directors.

2006–2011 Eighth generation

family members Zoë Prescott and

Peter Nicholas join the company,

and Hamish Elder becomes Harvey’s

Chairperson.

1862 John Harvey dies, and Henry

and Edwin die within days of each other.

William runs the business alone with

Henry Titlow-Barrett from Wethereds

Brewery, Marlow. William dies in 1868.

1881 The present Gothic Victorian

brewery was built under the

supervision of Titlow-Barrett, having

been designed by famed brewery

architect, William Bradford.

1980 Eric Rundle passes away,

leaving the company in the hands

of his daughters Audrey, Joan, and

Eileen, (sixth generation) and Chairman

Anthony Jenner. Miles Jenner becomes

Head Brewer, and in 1981 Eric’s

Grandson, Hamish Elder, son of Audrey,

joins the company.

This attractive ruby ale has so much going on in

ORIGIN

Copperwheat is named after the fictitious Lewes

brewers in Mrs. Dudeney’s novel ‘Seed Pods’ (1927).

Beers made with wheat can be incredibly

versatile when it comes to pairing alongside food

and Copperwheat, a ‘Kristal Weissbier’ – or clear

wheat beer – is no exception.

Copperwheat drinks comfortably alongside the

smoke and spice of big flavours like coriander,

chilli, cumin and lime, and cuts through the

heaviness of the black beans with ease,

refreshing the palate and leaving you ready for

another tasty mouthful.

Rainfall

Rainfall which has filtered over 30 years through the Sussex

chalk downs is drawn from our artesian well some sixty feet

below the brewery, and stored in the liquor reservoir at the

top of the Harvey’s Tower.

Having our own supply preserves a regional flavour to our

beers, and should preserve Harvey’s brewing for generations

to come. Water is replenished by the South Downs, and

drawn up from Harvey’s wells

Malt

We brew with Maris Otter malted barley, the product of a

long programme of cross selection dating back to the early

1900s, and much prized by cask ale brewers.

Local Whole Hops

Harvey’s use whole hops from Sussex, Kent and Surrey and

we have worked closely with our hop farmers for many years.

They are delivered to us in 70kg Hop Pockets

Yeast

At over 60 years old the Harvey’s yeast strain is unique

to our brewery. Countless generations of yeast cells from

our 1957 consignment have passed through our fermenting

room, as the crop from each week’s brewing is re-pitched

into the next.

Our yeast contributes to 50% of the final flavour of

Harvey’s beers

Green Credentials

Harvey’s are aware of the need to create an environmentally

stable business. Many factors that contribute to our

green credentials have always been part of our traditional

production methods and local partnerships, which have

been inherent in the brewing industry for many years.

Brewing

• Being a gravity fed brewery saves energy naturally

• Heat exchanging paraflows minimise the boiling of

water saving energy

• Equipment is only replaced with materials that will

provide long term gains

Ingredients

• Spent hops are distributed to local nurseries to be used

as mulch and fertilizer

• Spent grains are taken away to Plumpton College, who

estimate a 2.5 million litres of milk can be attributed to

our grains per annum.

Packaging

• Only UK Brewer to still be using returnable bottles.

Our bottles will journey 4 or 5 trips in and out of the

Brewery in a lifespan

Buildings

We have 544 Solar Panels on our Depot roof. The panels

generate an estimated 92,000kWhs of electricity a year,

with any surplus feeding back into the local grid.

Transport

• We use an emission reducing fleet of vehicles.

• Our own vehicle distribution is within a 75 mile

radius of the Brewery

Staff

We are proud to employ a local skilled workforce to

conduct maintenance our Grade II Listed Brewery site

and Pub Estate, consisting of many trades including

Plumbers, Carpenters, and Electricians.

Tom Paine is a rich and complex beer with some

big flavours. It has the hops to cut through the

texture of the Sunday Roast and distinct toffee

flavours that harmonise with

the caramelisation of the roast as it cooks.

Vegetarian lasagne also caramelises so

Tom Paine’s flavours are complementary.

Salted Caramel pudding is a study in contrasts

with the bitterness of the beer.

Brown ale and mushroom risotto is a classic

food and beer pairing, and Lewes Castle Brown

– an award-winning exemplar of its style – is

robust enough to work fantastically well. Wild

mushrooms have a meaty texture and a rich,

earthy character that’s perfectly complemented

by the roasted malt notes in the beer.

And those rich, earthy notes would also work

well with a hearty lentil stew or a chocolate

CITRUS, HOP, MARMALADE

Light amber in colour, this emboldened IPA has

potent hop notes on the nose, suggestive of ripe

orange marmalade alongside the sweetness of

tinned mandarins. The bold English hop character

continues on the palate, with more citrus, plus a

grassiness and a restrained sweetness redolent

of a Bakewell tart. The finish has a dryness that

suggests a witty aside in the pub, a putdown said

with affection and compassion.

How about trying it with roast chicken,

roast potatoes and peas — the beer adds a

succulence to the chicken, with its bitterness

cutting through the fat.

It was crucial for me to find a range

restaurant, and having used Harvey’s to

For me this is the ultimate craft product.

Natural spring water, local hops and

high-quality malted barley make for

wonderful drinking, but what makes

it really special are the people that sit

behind Harvey’s.

It’s a family and the passion is

infectious.

I fell in love with Harvey’s first

and foremost for their quality and

consistency, we find a lot of their beers

perform really well against our lager

range. The Gold Bier has become a

great alternative for a lot of our guests.

Harvey’s makes very reliable products

and I always know that if I’m buying

Harvey’s it’s going to be quality product.

There’s something extremely satisfying about

sipping upon a crisp beer while feasting on

makes people think of holidays. And picnics

are representative of time-out and relaxation.

and also an anytime-of-day snack good with a

ABOUT

Pale, crystal and black malt sugars are balanced

by the bitterness of Fuggle and Golding aroma

hops to create this fresh, dry beer.

Full of treacle, smoke and dried fruits this is

a real peaty serious stout. There are so many

foods you could pair Harvey’s Black Stout,

with a dryness that refreshes the palate, it acts

as an aperitif.

For me this is crying out to sit alongside game

especially the big iron-y hit of rare venison, root

vegetables and rich gravy. It’s the smouldering

smokey, woody hit that brings this to life. It is a

proper drink.

ABOUT

Brewed with a proportion of roasted malt and dark

sugars, Malt Brown is both warming at ambient

temperatures and refreshing when chilled.

Nothing beats a bowl of noodles for a quick

and tasty weeknight supper. I like them stirfried

with tofu and vegetables, and drenched in

a glossy sesame and chilli sauce. A can of Malt

Brown is more than robust enough to stand up

to this tasty dish.

Its toffee malt base and just a touch of

caramelised sugar perfectly complement the

sweet notes in the sauce, and bring out the

very best in those tastiest, crispiest and slightly

scorched edges of the tofu.

ORIGIN

Wharf IPA is brewed using hop varieties grown in

Sussex and Kent. The imagery on the can is of the

Wharf opposite the brewery site which sits on the river

Ouse where the brewery was established in 1790.

English hops are considered by some to be less

exciting than their American counterparts, but

this beer showcases them in all their grassy,

herby, spicy glory, providing a wonderfully

complex and pleasing aroma. On the palate it

evokes the English hedgerow, with hints of mint,

grass, pepper, rosemary and figs.

These hints pair perfectly with a rich meaty

dish such as roast lamb, and also have the

power to cut through and enhance a quiche

or frittata.

This strong barley wine is reminiscent of the

“October Ales” which were brewed in domestic

brew houses during the reign of Elizabeth I. Based

on the iconic Elizabethan Ale, a firm favourite that

has been in production at Harvey’s for over 65 years.

There is patience here and it makes for a really

The sweet bouncy malt and savoury

There’s a rich sweetness that could mellow a

bold blue cheese and would most certainly lift a

WINES

Before Harvey’s became the Brewery it

is today, the company was already an

established Wine and Spirit Merchant,

with records showing the delivery of

Old Red Port, Sherry and Claret in

Lewes and its surrounding villages in

the 1790’s.

Today Harvey’s Wine Buyer Andrew Harris

sources wines from small producers the world

over. Being located in Sussex we are lucky to be

in close vicinity to many English Wine producers

who supply us with their award-winning vintages.

Our wide selection of wines is carefully curated,

with new additions approved by our tasting team

on a quarterly basis. We believe in a balance of

value and quality, and this is reflected throughout

our range.

Events

Our shop team arrange a number

of Beer, Spirit, Wine, and Shop

events throughout the year, in

association with industry experts

and suppliers.

of over 100 spirits, containing

worldwide whiskies, cognacs,

Harvey’s Gin

Harvey’s Hop and Malt Gins are produced

from English malted barley mashed at

the brewery in Lewes, using exactly the

same system that initiates production of

our award winning beers. The resultant

sugars are then transported to be

fermented and distilled. A special blend

of botanicals is added to the Malt Gin

and a separate distillation of freshly

picked Sussex hops gives the Hop Gin its

defining character.

Both winners at the International Spirits Challenge 2019.
