COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled only.

Albion Ale is a bottled beer created by Harveys to celebrate the launch of The Brighton and Hove Albion football Stadium - The Amex. It is sold exclusively at the stadium and in Harveys Lewes Shop, and now online, with 5p from every bottle donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.

This well-hopped beer is derived from our Sussex Best Bitter. Bottled for ’The Albion’, a blend of four different ’aroma’ hop varieties imparts a delicate bitterness which is balanced by the residual sweetness of malt sugars.

Contains: Barley
