Harveys and South Downs National Park produce calendar

HARVEYS Brewery in Lewes is celebrating the first year of the South Downs National Park.

It has created a calendar for 2012 showing iconic and diverse images of the National Park.

The calendar features wonderful views, bustling market towns and wildlife.

Margaret Paren, Chair of the South Downs National Park Authority, said: “For two centuries Harveys have brewed beer in the South Downs and by continuing to support our farmers by using local produce they are, in turn, helping farmers to maintain the spectacular landscape captured in this calendar.”

Head Brewer Miles Jenner said: “There are obvious links between Harveys and the South Downs National Park. We restrict supplies of our beers to a 60-mile radius of Lewes and have won many environmental awards over the years.

“Wherever possible we source our raw materials locally, including malting barley grown on the Norfolk Estate in Arundel.”

The brewery has produced its 2012 calendar in association with the new South Downs National Park Authority. The calendar highlights the diversity of the South Downs and illustrates the brewery’s role in promoting and enhancing it.

Mr Jenner added: “We are proud to be a part of the region’s rich heritage and have greatly enjoyed working with the National Park Authority to promote the South Downs National Park.”
