Long Man Brewery are delighted to announce that we have won Green Business of the Year 2019 at the Sussex Life Food, Drink & Hospitality Business Awards. We are delighted to be recognised in this way as we are passionate about producing our beer at one with the beautiful surroundings we are rooted in.
Inspired by the beauty of the surrounding natural landscape, environmental responsibility and sustainable farming practices are at the heart of everything we do.
All the water used in our beers – approximately 1 million litres per year – is drawn from our own bore hole sunk 60 metres into the aquifer beneath the chalk downs. We use an advanced UV filtration system followed by ‘Burtonisation’ to ensure the water is perfect for brewing. Waste water is treated on site and returned to the land via irrigation.
We use ‘whole cone’ hops sourced from Sussex, Kent, and beyond, to give the perfect flavour and aroma.
We ‘pitch’ our house yeast into every brew so that we can then harvest and re-pitch from each freshly fermented batch. This not only recycles our yeast but ensures the consistent character in all our beers.
A bank of 100 solar panels on the roof of the farm’s grain store generate 25kva of electricity per year to help power the Brewhouse.
We believe in supporting local employment and our workforce of over 16 is sourced from the surrounding towns and villages.
