Celebrate St George's Day with appropriately named Sussex beer

It’s St George’s Day today (April 23) and what better way to mark the occasion than with an award winning Sussex brewed St George’s Day beer?

Independent brewers Harvey’s of Lewes have their St George’s Day brew Georgian Dragon available for a limited time at selected Harvey’s pubs and from the brewery shop. You can also order it online from the brewery website.

The 4.7 percent beer is described as an intensely hoppy ruby ale with a lingering bitterness and a fruit-cake flavour. Although it was first brewed in 2010 for St George’s Day, the label actually celebrates a lesser known Sussex hero Dr Gideon Mantell – the original Father of Palaentology.

The beer won Gold at the British Bottlers Institute awards in 2019 and won Silver in the 2012 International Beer Challenge.
