Sometimes, sitting on the pebbles with a tepid can of beer that’s been shaken about in the bottom of your bag just won’t do: you need to get off the beach and into a beer garden. The Brunswick, just a few metres from Hove seafront has a hidden gem of a sun-trapped garden, large enough to feel you’re still a part of the sunny day, but a world away from the dropped ice creams and smoking barbeques on the shingle.
The Brunswick is a free house, boasting nine rotating keg and four rotating cask lines. There’s a lot more than beer going on here – The Brunswick is also a music venue and presents regular comedy and theatre events – but beer plays a leading role. The pub holds two popular cask ale festivals every year, and has recently played host to recent tap takeovers from big hitters such as Little Earth Project and Tiny Rebel.
And if you like to think whilst you drink, The Brunswick is also home to an escape room – but, with all this going on, why would you ever want to escape?
