Crazy beer made on the south coast.

Keep it weird, be BRZN

Our take on BRZN Beer…

BRZN beer are uber fresh on the scene and the defining characteristic of the brand so far appears to be their drive and unbridled passion to brew whatever the hell they feel like, unrestrained by tradition, seasonal tastes or levels of sales. Expect lots of crazy combos, wacky experimentation and in-your-face flavours from this brewer, and if something doesn’t quite work or isn’t to your taste, not to worry, because as it’s all small batch, they’ll just start all over again with something else the following week.

A bit of history…

The team of 4 friends; Sheldon, Aleks, Max and Joe, launched BRZN in 2019 at a party at Bison Beer in Hove after deciding that between them they had the knowledge and passion start making the type of outlandish brews they would want to drink. In December they moved from Aleks’s kitchen into one of the shipping containers just off Preston Circus, somehow squeezing in a 2.5 barrel kit and two fermentation vessels. In May 2020 the team began selling the beers brewed each week from the brewery lockup.

How local are they?

They may be brewing out of a tiny container lockup on the old site of the Cobblers Thumb pub (that takes us back), but brewing they are and are most definitely a central Brighton brewer.

Our favourites 🍺

We’ve made it down to the container a few times now and tried 4 or so beers from the range. Here’s the ones that grabbed us.

Let That Raga Drop – 4.6% Golden Ale
Blimmin loving this cask ale. It’s a dense fruit juice of a beer. Plum, apricot and mango flavours competed for your tounge’s attention. Brilliantly slurpable, balanced and dry, also utilising a rarely seen Kasbek hop so the brewers tell us.

Prime Time Sandwich Sauce – 6.8% NEIPA
Did we mentioned these guys do whatever the hell they feel like, well that goes for names as well. But wow, this is thick with mango and rhubarb, finishing with a dense and rich buttery shortbread yumminess. Infact it’s not far off a mango cheesecake. Banging beer, dangerously addictive at 6.8% abv.
