Harvey & Son, Lewes,

United Kingdom


Harveys has been brewing in Lewes for two centuries. Georgian wine merchant John Harvey brewed his first pint in Bear Yard opposite the current site. He was brewing part time, sharing his plant with another brewer, Thomas Wood.

In 1838 he built a new brewhouse on the current Bridge Wharf site. The son Henry Harvey took over the brewing - he was producing stout, ale and porter in the mid 19th century.
