And now, we’ve come to the end, for what has become for most people, an achievement - no wait - a HUGE achievement! I’m talking about of-course Dry January. Going 31 days of being teetotal is brilliant, but those 31 days may have just ignited something inside of you that may think why not continue this onto February? Or March? Or throughout the whole year? And if you do choose to do that, we’ve got your back!
So, on today’s Midweek Drink, I hope that my choice of beverage may help you on your journey onto being alcohol-free.
Today, I shall be reviewing for you a Bitter called Sussex Best, brewed by Harvey’s Brewery.
A brief history of Harvey’s Brewery
Harvey’s Brewery has been linked with John Harvey since 1751. Originally from London, records show that during the 1790s, the Harvey family were supplying wine and port in the Lewes area.
In 1859, Henry Harvey, John Harvey’s son, began brewing and supplying Porters and Stouts to family owned public houses until his death.
Fast-forward to the 20th century, the brewery began to see a brighter future with the help from Eric Rundle and Anthony Jenner, by taking the brewery out of debt and brewing award winning beers.
Three senses and a beverage
The ingredients used in Sussex Best are: water, malted barley, sugar, flaked maize, hops, carbon dioxide, colour-caramel.
Sussex Best has an alcohol content of 0.5%, bottled in a 275ml glass bottle and has won a Silver award at the BBI Competition 2013.
This bitter has a clear, dark amber colour with an off-white head that dissipates very quickly. It has a very faint malty aroma and light bodied. For the taste, it begins with subtle sweetness, finishing off with a soft bitterness that leaves a tingle on the tongue.
