The process at Harvey’s is much the same method as the traditions of brewing have always been, but how we operate, where we source our ingredients and where our by-products go are what make our beers distinct.

Our take on Harvey’s Brewery…

You gotta love a pint of Harvey’s. Whether it’s their Best Bitter, one of their excellent seasonal’s, something special like their Imperial Stout or something contemporary like the Malt Brown on keg.

Not everything will suit everyone, but there are centuries worth of invaluable recipe know-how at Harvey’s Brewery going into the process, and the multitude of distinctive flavours they are capable of creating time after time, year after year, has to be respected.

There are many purveyors of Harvey’s in brighton, but the 3 pubs run by Harveys in the city are The Lord Nelson, The Mitre and The Constant Service.

A bit of history…

Harvey’s Brewery appears to be Sussex’s oldest  running brewery and still under family ownership since 1790. The brewery has always been located in Lewes, originally over the road from it’s current site where it has been brewing since the 1840s.

The business, and the family, have had their fair share of ups and downs over the years, but in the 20th century turned things around and Harvey’s currently run 45 pubs across Sussex and London.

A more recent evolution was the development into into kegged beers and canning them as well.

With so many stories about their history on offer, we’ll let them tell it properly. For a full history have a read here..

How local are they?

Lewes is 15 short minutes from Brighton on the train and the very popular brewery tour is well worth signing up for if you like a bit of Sussex brewing history.

Our favourites 🍺

Of the core range the Armada Ale is definitely worth a try. Not too dissimilar to the Best with it’s dense hoppy flavour, it’s a sessionable beer but with an interesting and balanced bitter finish.

Of the seasonal’s the Southdown Harvest is sweet, summery and scrumptious. A few pints of this this down on Cliffe High Street, metres from the brewery and in sight of the downs, is a summer highlight.

We specialise in building big flavours into beers with high drinkability at sessionable ABV’s. We don’t box tick styles just because they become fashionable.
We love cask beer and recognise its importance within UK beer culture.
