Brighton has always got fun and interesting stuff going on but this weekend beer has really taken over the sea side city, with a big scale tap takeover lasting 3 days as well as Wylam coming to town!
Starting tonight at the Brighton Bier Dispensary on Dean street, they welcome Wylam for a tap takeover and meet the brewer event. They are bringing some fantastic beers with them including the WxY they masterminded with Yeastieboys – not sure you will find it again around Brighton after this so I would get down and give it a go, it’s up there with some of the best beers I’ve had this year and plan to go get it again tonight, it’s so fruity!
If that was not enough this weekend sees the arrival of the very first Tap Takeover in Brighton, all over Brighton. Ten breweries and ten pubs come together to create a unique tap takeover across Brighton. Each pub has been paired with a Brewery. The brewery will take over the taps with their beers as well as some one off / hard to find collabs. You can find all the details you need right HERE and be quick if you want a wristband as they only have a few left!
The Tap Takeover has some real highlights for me, The Mash Tun houses Cloudwater, we all know these guys pull it out the bag each time and nothing is changing for Brighton, they are bringing Cloudwater V3 which will be being served on Saturday as well as some other special beers I’ve been informed. Northern Monk will also be in getting stuck in at The Hop and Ruin where I’m sure they will be packing some great beer and vibes!
Finally, East Street Tap is being taken over by Bison Beer & Two Tribes for Laughs. They are not only brining the new and improved Sea Side APA back to Brighton this weekend but will have a new beer from Two Tribes – Super Sonic Saison. Saturday night they have jokes upstairs with a stand up night and Sunday they finish things off with some blues from Tamara who is a Bison herself and Brewtorial will be taking part in a pub quiz!
Brighton, embrace the beer! Cheers and enjoy the weekend.
