What the website says…

Our aim is to create the most delicious and flavoursome beers we can and continually push the boundaries of what’s possible. We are enormously proud of the fact that five of our beers… are No.1 in their categories in the South of England on the beer review site Untappd.

Our take on Arundel Brewery…

The brewery is recognisable by the castle emblem regularly spotted on pumps in Brighton and Hove and across Sussex. In fact, however, cask is becoming less of a focus for the brewery as it strides confidently from its traditional range to more and more canned and kegged styles, with ambitions to be a pioneering brewery that champions new beers and flavour experimentation.

Of all the brewers we’ve spoken to, Arundel’s owners are by far the most focused on their Untappd scores, using it as gauge for what works and what doesn’t. They have refined the brewery’s range to perfection, leading it to see five beers at the top of their categories in the South East region.

Teaming up with podcasters Triple Hopped on beer collaborations – such as the belting 8.2% Green Is Good Imperial IPA – indicates more modern media savvy, showing that Arundel is prepared to utilise fresh mediums to connect with beer audiences.

Stuart Walker, the Director, tells us he’s looking for a ‘WOW’ factor in all the beers Arunde makes. And he’s aware that modern generations are drinking less, but drinking shrewdly.

A bit of history…

Arundel Brewery was established in 1992. Taking over the running in 2015, Stuart and his family have rapidly succeeded in turning a ‘twiggy’ brewery with a traditional beer range into a culture of modern flavour perfection. The Brewhouse Project, a huge modern taproom just outside Arundel, followed in 2019, and there are plans in the near future to build a brewery into the taproom – completing the circle of creating great tasting beers in view of the customer, and then being enjoyed in the place where they are created.

How local is it?

Arundel Brewery is just beyond Worthing, in Ford just south of Arundel, and sells its beers in the Brewhouse Project taproom just off the A27. It’s only a short hop by train from Brighton if you want to sample them – but you can also find Arundel cask beers in many places in Brighton and Hove, and in Sussex at large.

Our favourites 🍺

Tarrant Street Table Beer – 3.4%
When you want a pale that curbs your thirst on a hot day without taking your legs out from under you, you simply can’t go wrong with Arundel’s Tarrant Street Table Beer.
This session IPA – carbonated with a slightly tropical fruit body – is hoppy, massively crushable and refreshing.
Without landing too much on the bitter or sweet spectrum it finishes clean and satisfying, and at 3.4% the ‘WOW’ is that it completely delivers with robust flavour.

Maple, Chocolate and Coffee Imperial Stout – 10%
This beer fills your nostrils with mocha long before your lips get close enough to taste it. Then when you do it coats your tongue with thick silky chocolate and vanilla, finishing impeccably balanced.
It’s a boozy, deserty treat of an Imperial Stout, but one that doesn’t finish sickly sweet – so it really keeps you coming back for more.
