Really bad news if true. First the shop, then some pubs and finally the brewery. Lewes will be a different place if this happens. How reliable is your source Lopster?

harveys worker I sincerely hope you are right - the shop is wonderful and is certainly the Koh-I-Noor in Lewes' crown - loss would be tragic and the equivalent (at least) of losing Woolworths in my opinion

I guess it is the duty of every Lewesian to sup as many beverages as posible from said brewery shop just in case there might be, as rumoured, some difficulties which might result in said shop closing and in this day and age, credit crunch etc etc we need to be doubly cautious that Harveys is support in these difficult times.....go to it loppy, people of Lewes unite.
