Haywards Heath's 2nd Best Brewery

Haywards Heath's Craft Brewery

Situated in the self acclaimed Heart of Mid-Sussex, Haywards Heath, and deep beneath the gourmand delights of Grape & Grain, the brewery reluctantly resides in the deep cool cellars, where an objectionable bunch of ragtag brewers, who can hardly tolerate each other and best kept away from polite society, thrive in the experimental madness otherwise known as The Heathen Brewers Brewery!

After test brewing the perfect beer with the then brand new local Sussex hop, the entire annual production of the hop was bought by another brewery and we were left empty handed.

The Beginning

Nearly a decade ago, a bunch of guys and a gal met up and using the new Sussex hop brewed, what they all agreed, admittedly after a considerable quantity had been consumed, was most definitely the best beer ever. Apart from the wealth of brewing experience between them, they discovered that one was a retired accountant/brewer, another an engineer/brewer, a third had a dungeon suitable for brewing, and the fourth a business consultant/brewer. Then came the fifth, a perfectionist that annoyed just about everyone else just enough to spur them into action. It seemed the perfect team to form a brewery, but alas we forgot youth and enthusiam, so finally a sixth was added, a go-getter, the sportsman, who's belief in anything is possible and the American Dream has not yet been tarnished by the misery of life (we're working on that). They had brewed the best beer in the world after all, it would be virtually criminal not to produce it for all to share. After a year of argument discussion, the brewery was formed and named Heathen Brewers.
