The Evening Star Brighton

Steeped in beery history and offers keg, cask, canned and bottled adventure

The warm, woody interior of The Evening Star Brighton is warm, wood-clad and inviting, not unlike a sauna.

There’s a limited number of booths, stools and tables available but plenty of standing room for busy nights, and outside the benches are a mecca for drinkers clinging to the sun’s afternoon rays.

The pub has a fine pedigree, being the birthplace of Dark Star Brewing, who started life in the basement in 1994. That legacy lives on in the excellent and adventurous miscellany of beers available that will suit even the most niche of tastes.

If the many cask pumps and taps aren’t enough, the fridges behind the bar are stocked with a great range of bottles and cans making the total beer list extensive. Staff and punters alike come across as passionate beer aficionados at The Evening Star Brighton.

Troll Burger vend their tasty meaty morsels from the shack outside on weekends.
