What the website says…

Born from the inspirational pub and beer scene of Brighton, Laine Brew Co brews beer imbued with a love of flavour, experimentation and good times. 

Our beers are unfiltered , unpasteurised and uncompromising – meaning more flavour and more love.

Our take on Laine Brew Co…

Laine Beer Co is a local beer empire in a trendy upstart’s clothing. With the clout of it’s Pub Co empire across Brighton, Hove and London, they can put their beers in front of the masses like few other brewers, and then outgun other options with zany clip artwork.

The core range beers are great sessionable keg craft pales, and if truth be told we’ve never been blown away by any of their cask range, but it’s the beers produced at the North Laine Brewhouse that you just must get your lips around.

The brewing team there devise excellent small batches and experimental concoctions with passionate abandon and a clear focus on quality in the making and selling. This is indicated by the fact all the bar staff at the Brewhouse do an experience day in order to learn about the process. You can as well with their fun and informative Be The Brewer days, as we found out for ourselves.

A bit of history…

Laine Brew Co, and their sister Laine Pub Co, have taken Brighton by storm since they launched in 2016. That said they were running under other names before that, the brewery as The Laine Brewery, and the Pub Co as Drink in Brighton, who already had a huge portfolio of 30+ Brighton pubs.

The company now run over 50 pubs in Brighton and London since opening their first, the Mash Tun, in 1996, and each one has a winning formula of good design, fun in many forms and excellent beer variety, both modern and traditional, on the bar.

How local are they?

While they state their spiritual home is Brighton’s North Laine, Laine Brew Co’s main production facility is in West Sussex and they also operate 2 other brewpubs in London.

Chances are you aren’t drinking a beer actually made in Brighton unless you are purchasing something outside of the core range at the North Laine Brewhouse itself. That said they do also brew for local bars such as The Hope and Ruin.

Our favourites 🍺

Given the amount of places you can find it now, Source Pale is our reliable refreshing pint in most Brighton pubs, and usually the more affordable keg pale.

We prefer the Source for it’s reliable piney but balanced nature, refreshing and satisfactory mouthfeel, and it’s sessionable 4.1% abv. Even though confusingly it’s Source’s higher abv brother Ripper that has the session beer moniker.

We once helped make a batch of Mosaic Pale Ale at the brewery for the Hope and Ruin and it was fantastic, well rounded, sweet and juicy. Worth a try if you spot it again, if we do say so ourselves.. 😀

What the website says…

We specialise in building big flavours into beers with high drinkability at sessionable ABV’s. We don’t box tick styles just because they become fashionable.
We love cask beer and recognise its importance within UK beer culture.
