The band partnered with local brewery Harvey’s to produce the beer, named Lewes Stopover Brew, a 4% “soft golden ale” made with Fuggle and Golding hops.

Only 10 nine-gallon barrels – or 700 pints – have been made for the two day festival, which will also see bands such as The Vaccines, Mystery Jets and Johnny Flynn descend on the Sussex town.

The band happened upon the brewery while planning the Lewes leg of their “Gentlemen of the Road” tour.

They returned recently to help create the beer, putting in the hops and mashing it down.

The band’s visit to Lewes is part of a series of small tours that Mumford and Sons began in 2012.

More gigs will take place this year in Canada and the US.
