Mumford & Sons Create Beer For Festival

Mumford & Sons are getting into the beer business.  The band has announced that the Lewes Stopover Brew will be available at their Lewes, England stopover concert later in July.

A local Lewes brewer, Harveys, has created the small batch specifically for the two day festival.  Ben Lovett says, "They have made ten lines of it...which amounts to ten nine gallon barrels, or 700 pints."

"That should be enough for backstage."

Harveys tells The Argus that the band toured the brewery while planning their Gentlemen of the Road stopovers.  The beer is $7 ABV and is described as "a soft golden ale with the gentle bitterness of Fuggle and Golding hops, best served chilled."

The beer is also available in bottles from the brewer's website.
