We brew at Gun Hill, on a beautiful 140 acre organic mixed farm in the Sussex Weald. The farm has a history of hop growing and some survive to this day in the hedgerows. It’s a lovely place to be and a lovely place to brew. In making our beer we aim to tread lightly on our surroundings. We generate much of our own power from a 15kw solar array; heating from a wood powered boiler and our spent grains keep the local livestock happy. All the water used for brewing comes from our own spring source deep below the organically farmed land. The water is microfiltered and UV treated to ensure its purity without the need for chemicals. It’s delicious and great for brewing.

Brighton’s original craft brewers. 100% independent and 100% brewed in the city. International award winning brewery, their signature 4.0% Pale “Brighton Bier” won a Gold Medal at the International Beer Challenge 2015, one of only three UK breweries to win Gold in any category out of over 630 beers from more than 30 countries. Produce a range of beers in cask, keg and packaged that are sold across the country and also internationally. Have also collaborated on beers with breweries from as far afield as Japan, and with GBBF winners Tiny Rebel. Brighton Bier grew out of a passion for beer and a shared ambition to play a lead role in the revival of the city’s once proud and independent commercial brewing heritage, and put Brighton firmly back on the brewing map. It’s been a journey from humble beginnings on a 4-bbl kit in a brew-pub and gypsy brewing for extra capacity to an award-winning pub and 15-bbl bespoke brew kit in premises in Brighton. At Brighton Bier our plan is to embrace the attitude, ingredients and flavour profiles of the progressive beer styles from Belgium, North America and beyond, but to do so in a way that respects the character and historical integrity of British ale.
