*2013* (provisional) Beer List

The 29th Festival will be held on Fri 22nd - Sat 23rd March 2019 once again at Brighton Racecourse.

The provisional list (as at 23 February 2013) includes all breweries and is split into A-F, G-P and R-Z. We're looking at increasing the functionality of how smartphone users can access this list with a view to making more of our futuristic QR code at the festival itself. A guide to the different beer styles can be found here.

Update 23 Feb 2013: 18 additions and 18 deletions from the initial provisional list (27 Jan) have been reflected in the table below, and are summarised here at the foot of the page.

Update 1 Feb 2013: Tasting notes now available (also via the Downloads page)

As ever, last-minute substitutions (and, unfortunately, beers that fail to reach condition) are possible right up to the start of the festival, and all beers are subject to availability (i.e. leave it until Saturday evening, then don't be surprised if the most popular have already sold out!).

Details of bottled beers, ciders & perries and wines can be found on their own pages.
