The Great Brighton Tap Takeover

The Brighton Tap Takeover – the UK’s biggest city-wide beer festival – returns this November to the South Coast for a fifth exciting year.

The three day celebration of beer and pubs takes place across the city on 11th – 13th November and will feature over 130 craft beers produced by popular brewers from Brighton, Sussex and around the UK.

The pub-based festival takes place in 22 pubs located across the city of Brighton, each craft brewery taking over its own pub with entertainment programmes including DJs, live music performances and beer tasting sessions. The Brighton Tap Takeover is a must-visit event for anyone who wants to combine their discovery and enjoyment of craft beer with a great night out in one of the liveliest cities in the UK.

As ever, the festival hub is located at the North Laine Brewhouse, home of event host Laine Brew Co’s experimental microbrewery, where tickets can be purchased and festival guidance given. Laine’s beers will be available throughout the festival venues alongside the tap takeover beers from 22 of the UK’s finest craft breweries. Participating breweries are Northern Monk, Two Tribes, Abyss, Beak, Burning Sky, Brixton, Laine, Pressure Drop, Gosnells, 360°, Beavertown, Orbit, Cloudwater, Cloak and Dagger, Magic Rock, Vault City, Queer, Whiplash and Amundsen.

Gavin George, CEO of Laine, said:

“The return of the Brighton Tap Takeover festival in 2021, following a two year gap during the pandemic, was a massive success. People really did want to start discovering great craft beers again in an environment where great craft beers taste the best – the pub. This year we’re excited to bring new breweries

to our beloved city as well as welcoming back favourites from previous years. We’re looking forward to a fun weekend for our customers and brewing friends from around the country.”

Weekend tickets for the festival cost £20 which includes four free half pints of craft beer plus £1 off any festival beer and 50p off half pints.
