Friday 23rd August – Sunday 1st September 2019

If you were to invent a beer city it would be Brighton & Hove. We’ve got sunshine*, sea, crazy golf, chips on the pier, sticks of rock, a gaudy royal palace, a tenacious football team, a vibrant music scene, a diverse bunch of folk, some very fine brews and lots of wonderful beer venues.

Last year more than 30 venues put on over 60 events across the 10 days of the festival. This year we intend to make it even bigger and better than before!

So, put the dates in your diary, because the cream of the Brighton & Hove beer scene is coming together for a week to celebrate #beerbythesea.

No wristbands. No lanyards. No central beer tent.

Brighton & Hove Beer Week, is all about the venues and the breweries that bring great beer to the city every day. Each participating venue will be organising events, collaborations and happenings throughout the week in order to showcase the very best in beer and brewing from Brighton & Hove and beyond. This is about world-class beer served where it should be: in the pubs, bars, restaurants and bottle shops that bring it to you all year round. And it’s about a whole heap more than that – because this is Brighton & Hove and we know how to throw a party.

Some individual events may be ticketed but there’ll be no wristbands, lanyards, or central beer tent. It’s just you and a whole city full of great beer to explore and enjoy.

The venues and events will be announced soon!

Who is behind Brighton & Hove Beer Week?

Brighton & Hove Beer Week was founded by the current British Beer Writer of the Year, Emma Inch. Emma has called the city her home for the past twenty-five years and is keen to show the world what a unique and enjoyable place Brighton & Hove is for beer lovers. But, ultimately, the week is led by those venues and breweries who are taking part. Working together, in a spirit of cooperation and mutual respect, these people are about to stage one of the very best celebrations the city has ever seen.
