Welcome to the Sussex Beer Festival

The 28th Festival will be held on Thurs 22nd - Sat 24th March 2018 once again at Brighton Racecourse.

19 March 2018: Festival Programme available; advance sale period ends

The Festival Programme is now available for download (2.4Mb, 20 page PDF, opens in new window; note: final version uploaded 21 March 2018) and contains tasting notes for our provisional beer list and details of the ciders and perries ordered.

Advance sales ended late last week: any remaining tickets (plus the 50 per session that we held back) will go on sale on the door for each session.

Finally, this website will not be updated over the Festival weekend (the webmaster will be working away): please keep an eye on our Twitter feed and Facebook for any updates (including any beer substitutions).

12 March 2018: Provisional beer list now online

Our provisional beer list is now online to whet your appetities, with 71 different Sussex beers - plus another round 100 from further afield - currently lined up. Remember: it's best not to pin your hopes on anything in particular, as substitutions and cancellations can happen right up until the Festival itself.

28 February 2018: Argus article and ticket availability

Thanks to Brighton's local daily paper, The Argus, for this great article on the festival (link opens in new page, subject to Argus cookie acceptance and working as at 28 February 2018).

Please also remember to keep an eye on our ticket availabiliy matrix on our Tickets page: we update this when we get updates from our outlets (and when the webmaster is not working away or in Germany watching football), so you may wish to contact your outlet of choice directly before embarking on a long journey specifically for tickets (although they do all also sell excellent ale!).
