Ale and Hearty final event – 2014

Strike a Light hosted a project book launch recently in Lewes (January 2014).

This involved a drop-in crafts workshop to make slumber pillows using heritage local hops, showcasing our Ale and Hearty project exhibition, a screening of our Ale Tales film, wild food cafe, and free beer tasting.

The hit of the evening was a round table discussion about brewing with Miles Jenner, Master Brewer from Harveys Brewery, David Muggleton – Editor of The Sussex DrinkerGodfrey Broster the brewing vicar, and John Copper of the singing Copper Family.

We had a packed house and a great time, in part due to the generous beer provisions donated by Harveys of Lewes!

Ale and Hearty was an HLF funded social history project about brewing and related agriculture and industry around Lewes.

This project is now finished – 2014
