Harveys Royal Nuptial Ale


Formerly brewed at Harveys
Lewes, England
Style: English Strong Ale | Ratings: 9 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 6%
Harvey’s of Lewes, the Sussex brewers, are about to brew their celebratory ale for the forthcoming royal wedding and it will truly be a taste of Sussex. The recipe will comprise malting barley, grown on the Duke of Norfolk’s estate in Arundel ; hops from Bodiam, Burwash, Robertsbridge and Wadhurst ; and honey from Hassocks. ’Royal Nuptial Ale’ is described as ’an ale for honeymooners - and all romantics - wherever they may be’. The inspiration for the beer came from Shakespeare’s ’A Midsummer Night’s Dream’. Head Brewer, Miles Jenner, explained " The play is set amidst royal wedding celebrations and highlights the eternal hope of romance ; Shakespeare was born on 23rd April, St. George’s Day, and his birthday celebrations precede the royal wedding by a few days. It all seemed a very natural combination." The beer will be bottled and available in mid April. A limited supply may also be available on draught.
