Harvey’s Brewery Low Alcohol Old Ale is a flagship brown ale with the alcohol removed.
Rich and dark, it’s a soft and full bodied low alcohol brown ale with hints of dried fruits and dates.
Burnt sugars and roasted malts compliment the premium Maris Otter barley, together with the light bitterness of aroma hops.
So it’s an award-winner brewed in the same way as its full-alcohol parent Old Ale, with the alcohol removed before bottling.
What goes into a pint of Harvey’s?
The finest raw materials, unique local conditions and a traditional brew-house combine to achieve Harvey’s traditional unpasteurised cask ales
- spring water, from rainfall that filters through the chalk downs to an artesian well 60 feet below the brewery prized Maris Otter malted barley, cross-bred from a selection dating back to the early 1900s
- distinctive whole hops from Sussex, Kent and Surrey, including Fuggles, Goldings, Progress and Bramling Cross
- a yeast unique to Harvey’s, re-pitched after each week’s brewing
- consistency, which is the goal of the brewing team, who believe they are as good as their last pint.
Old Ale evolved over decades, and now dry drinkers can enjoy this Harvey’s Brewery best seller too.
Harvey’s Brewery is the oldest independent brewery in Sussex. A family business, the brewery has been in the guardianship of seven generations of John Harvey’s descendants since 1790, with five family members from the seventh and eighth generations currently working here.
Still a privately-owned limited company, Harvey’s has no shares marketed for external investment.
