In a nutshell: A tasty and well balanced low alcohol bitter from Harvey's Brewery of Lewes East Sussex.
The lowdown: the low alcohol version of Harvey's flagship Sussex Best Bitter is a traditional ale brewed to the same recipe as their Best Bitter, but with the alcohol removed after fermentation. There's a satisfying, but not overpowering, hoppiness which makes for really refreshing drinking.
Harvey's are a cherished part of Britain's brewing history and one a select group of regional breweries that haven't been incorporated into a multinational brewcorp. Their home has always been Lewes in East Sussex where their riverside brewery is one the architectural landmarks of the town. They've been there since the 1800s. At a time when cutting edge craft breweries dominate the beer scene Harvey's hark back to an earlier era. They're a traditional English brewery occupying a niche in the market that's a part of our heritage. And by no means least, their beers have an enduring popularity and quality to which anybody who's a devotee of their flagship Sussex Best will attest.
