Beachy Head Brewery
Beachy Head beers are made with simple, traditional ingredients to guarantee the rich, nuanced flavours of real ale. Our dedication to quality and tradition has already earned our young brewery a number of awards.
Our philosophy is simple; we make great ales using the finest ingredients”
Roger Green, Master Brewer
All our ales contain live yeast and should be poured carefully to leave a small amount of sediment in the bottle. Best served at a cool (but not cold) temperature.
Come and celebrate the Beachy Head Brewery’s 10th Anniversary with us on Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th of October, between 10am – 5pm when the brewery will be offering our finest ales.
Our award winning traditional ales will be available from £2.00 a pint, whilst Taylor Made Foods will be providing a variety of tasty pies. In addition to the above, there will be Morris dancing by the wonderful Long Man Morris Men.
The brewery is near the Seven Sisters Sheep Centre, off Gilbert’s Drive, East Dean, nr. Eastbourne, BN20 0AA
