2014 Beer List

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

Post-festival awards (announced late-March 2014)

The winner of Beer of the Festival at the recently held Sussex Beer and Cider Festival is Twickenham Nooksack APA. Brewed in collaboration with the Kissingate Brewery from Lower Beeding is described as an “American Pale Ale brewed with three different types of American hops”.

The Bev Robbins Shield for the best Sussex Beer was Harvey’s Prince of Denmark.

Looking for a live up-to-date beer list? Check out our mobile Beer Changes page. Unfortunately we can't keep this full page up-to-date throughout the Festival.

The updated final list (as at 5 March 2014) includes all breweries and is split into A-F, G-P and R-Z. A guide to the different beer styles can be found here.

Changes to the Festival Programme can be found here, however 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, as when information becomes available.
