Welcome to the Sussex Beer Festival

The 26th Festival will provisionally run from
17-19 March 2016
at the Brighton Corn Exchange (again, provisionally!)

18 June 2015: Beers & Ciders of the festival

Moving to a new venue after 24 years was always going to present unexpected difficulties but, thanks to all the volunteers, the 25th festival worked well.

The total number of punters through the door was just over 3,000 which, although being a much smaller venue, was encouraging.

The Beer of the Festival was Ayr Brewing Company’s Rabbie’s Porter. The Bev Robbins Award for the Best Sussex Beer was Benchmark IPA brewed by a brand new brewery UnBarred (based in Hove).

Cider of the Festival was Hecks Brown’s Apple from Somerset and Perry of the Festival was Gregg’s Pit Blakeney based in Herefordshire.

The festival charity Blind Veterans UK raised £745.80 in unused tokens and £315.46 in cash.

Thanks go to ALL the volunteers who worked at the Corn Exchange, especially the many from outside of Sussex.
