Our take on Long Man Brewery…

Long Man is a staple name on the pumps of Brighton & Hove’s bars, and if it isn’t Harvey’s providing the house bitter it’s generally Long Man Best.

Until speaking to Long Man and doing our interview, we honestly thought it had been around longer than it has; it just seems to have that air of a long-established, traditional cask brewer.
Recently they have added to their well loved core and seasonal cask ale range with a couple of keg options, Crafty Blonde, a pale ale, and a wonderfuly smooth Helles Lager, with more to follow so we hear.

What stands out about Long Man is how self sustaining they are; growing about 80% of the barley they use themselves, recycling as much waste water and brewing materials as possible and powerin ghte brewery using solar. They also employ exclusively from very local area.

A bit of history…
The brewery, like many good ideas, began in the time-honoured fashion of a pint. Farmer Duncan and drinks wholesaler Steve joined forces in 2012 to start Long Man on the site of Duncan’s arable farm, and the brewery has always been run with a passion for sustainability and supporting the local community.

Is it local?
Long Man is based in the stunningly scenic valley of the Cuckmere River, just across the way from Alfriston. It might not be on Brighton’s doorstep, but that hasn’t stopped Long Man getting its beers into many a Brighton bar.

Our favourites 🍺
You can’t talk about Long Man without mentioning its moreishly sweet and malty Best Bitter. Probably the most prevalent of Long Man’s beers, it can be found on many a Brighton bar in place of another of Sussex’s well-known bitters by Harveys. That Long Man has managed to produce one of the county’s classic bitters, despite only being around for a decade, is a real testament to its appeal.

We are also a huge fan of their dark mild, Old Man. Originally a seasonal this beer become one of Long Man’s core collection, and it’s plain to see why. It’s close to the bitterness of the stout with flavours of burnt toasted malt, and yet it’s smooth, light and gulpable. This could a be a gateway beer for anyone not quite sure about dark beers.
