New for 2023 we are delighted to welcome an alternative at our bars for better minds, bodies and spirits. But what is ‘well-being brewing’ and where did it all begin?
Here’s a little story from Sussex locals Roger and Steve, founders of Only With Love….
One Sunday morning back in 2018, two men met on a football pitch in Lewes…
Steve (man no.1) was getting on 40, and Roger (man no.2) was a few years ahead. Steve was upfront that day, Roger running hard to keep up in defence.
After a big night, both were a little worse for wear – their best balling days behind them – heads full of dust, lungs bursting, and all on the back of a 4am wake-up call from the kids.
‘What do you do when you’re not playing?’ wheezed Rog when the ball went out for a corner. ‘I’m a brewer,’ said Steve. ‘You?’ ‘I drink too much,’ Rog replied.
(Some say ̶d̶e̶c̶a̶y̶ necessity is the mother of invention…)
Skip forward to 2020, and the new brewery arrives. Built during lockdown, Steve and Roger have become great friends and created a different craft beer outfit.
Only With Love is a wellbeing brewery. We are delighted to welcome them to Elderflower Fields in 2023. Sustainably created, packaged and delivered, they produce a range of award-winning drinks for better minds, bodies and spirits. Doing good things with beer and soda, giving better choices to people who love their brews. They brew zero to 5% ABV: a compelling range of fun, premium alcohol-free beers, kombuchas, hop sodas and regular beers that are perfectly in step with today’s mindful drinker – from breakfast to closing time.
Only With Love Mission
The post-match napkin sketches of 2018 have been updated a little, but some things will always remain. Only With Love cares for better nights out and better nights in; better sleep and better days; better energy and better time with family, friends and colleagues… more joy, health and happiness.
Meanwhile, Steve and Roger drink a lot better than they used to – and Fridays and Sundays they still play the beautiful game together
