Brighton Beer Blog

An independent guide to pubs in Brighton & Hove, and breweries across Sussex

About Us – What is Brighton Beer Blog

“Drink Somewhere New”

Brighton Beer Blog is a place to search for Brighton and Hove pubs, discover new watering holes and plan your perfect night out.

The journey all started when Nick and Dave met for a pint in the Shakespeare’s Head in 2017. The pubs around us all seemed to be closing or changing hands, and the sands of our reliable landscape were shifting.

Two things suddenly struck us;
1. ‘Where would we go if our regulars changed and became crap?’
2. ‘There are probably some great pub gems we are missing out on that could one day vanish forever…’

So we browsed the interweb assuming that there must already be a central source for pubs in Brighton and Hove, somewhere that outlines what they’re about and directs you to them. Nope, nothing.
So this superhuman task must be down to us…

A couple of pints later Brighton Beer Blog was born, not just to give us a flimsy, semi-respectable excuse to visit as many of Brighton and Hove’s pubs as possible, but to one day become a useful resource, listing local pubs, bars and breweries. That’s right, we lift the lid on the people behind your favourite beer and have compiled probably the most comprehensive list and introduction to Sussex’s breweries as well.

We don’t believe in good and bad pubs. We believe there is a pub for every person, and a person that will appreciate every pub. It’s our mission to help unite you with yours – and perhaps help expand your options along the way.

We hope people will use the Brighton Beer Blog website to join us in celebrating Brighton and Hove’s wonderfully diverse pub scene and, whether a you’re a local resident, or just visiting, feel empowered by the knowledge on our pages to “Drink Somewhere New”.
