Dark Star X Unbarred – UnReal

UnReal
4.7% Session New England IPA
40 IBU

Both UnBarred and Dark Star started life in Brighton & Hove. Now all grown up and brewing in rural Sussex, these two imaginative breweries have hooked up to bring us this extra special brew for Brighton & Hove Beer Week.

UnReal is a full-bodied session NEIPA, generously hopped with a mix of US (Crystal, Simcoe), Australian (Galaxy) and NZ hops (Nelson Sauvin). This is tropical fruits in a glass!

 

Unbarred X Pharmacie Coffee – Redeye Sour

Redeye Sour

4.5% Coffee Sour

UnBarred Brewery started life in the kitchen of a small flat in Hove. Now one of the most respected brewers in Sussex, founder Jordan Mower now brews out of Missing Link in East Sussex.
For this extra special Brighton & Hove Beer Week brew UnBarred have teamed up with Pharmacie Coffee Roasters in Hove to create the perfect sour for a sunny day. Look out for it in cans across the city!

Hand Brew Co.

IMG-7175

Running up the spine of the Hand in Hand pub in Kemptown is one of the most quirkily interesting breweries in town. Hand Brew Co. is based in the 5BBL capacity tower brewery, originally installed by legendary ex-landlord, Bev Robbins, in the late 1980s. The brewery operates on gravity alone, meaning the malt has to be carried up to the top of the building by hand before every brew.

Head brewer, Jack Tavare, is a young homebrewer turned commercial brewer via the Diploma in British Brewing Technology at Sunderland’s Brewlab. He is imaginative, skilful and dedicated to producing both cask and keg which can be found both in the pub and right across the city. There’s no small-pack production as yet so drink it here and drink it fresh!

Holler

Yes, the secret’s out: by the time Brighton & Hove Beer Week is upon us we’ll have a new brewery in the city! Since 2016, Holler have been brewing their quirky, tasty beers on a farm in East Sussex, but their connection to the city has always been strong. Last year, for example, they brewed a collaboration with The Bevy – a red rye ale called The Beast of Bevendean – and donated a percentage of the profits directly to the community pub.

And now, drawn by the big city lights, they’re opening up a new brewery in the centre of Brighton & Hove! We wish them well and look forward to giving them a proper Beer Week welcome!

North Laine Brewhouse (Laine Brew Co.)

Most Laine Brew Co. beers are brewed on their 45-barrel kit up in Adversane, West Sussex, and you can find these in Laine’s pubs across Brighton & Hove and London. However, Laine Brew Co. also brews at the People’s Park Tavern in Hackney, the Four Thieves in Clapham and, down here in the centre of Brighton, at the North Laine Brewhouse.

All but one of the Laine Brew Co. cask ales served at the North Laine Brewhouse is brewed on site, and there are plans to brew more of the keg beer here too – so make sure you pop in and grab yourself a pint of something fresh and tasty!

The Brunswick

DSC_0947 (2)

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?

Craft Beer Co.

Twenty-seven beer lines, intelligent bar staff, and close enough to Churchill Square that you can have a beer whilst you’re out shopping and still feel like you’re on task – Craft Beer Co. ticks all the important boxes and more.

Craft Beer Co. Brighton is the only member of this independently-owned, pub group outside London. It specialises in great beer – local, national and international – and there’s often has something just a bit special from across the Atlantic on keg.
