Craft brewers from across the UK are set to partner with Brighton pubs for upcoming beer festival, the Brighton Tap Takeover. 

The festival, run by Brighton-based pubco Laine Pub Company and distributor the Beer Collective, will see breweries will take over the taps of partnered pubs for the weekend of 8-10 April, to serve a range of more than 50 craft beers.

Gavin George, CEO of the Laine Pub Company, said: "It's a unique way to run a craft beer festival of this size."


He added: "We wanted to take the beer out of the usual festival venue – the conference centre, town hall and church – and put it in the environment where it tastes the best... the pub."

Brewers showcasing their beers at the Brighton Tap Takeover include Fourpure, Two Tribes, Redchurch, Signature Brew, Mad Hatter, Northern Monk, Cloudwater, Celt Experience, Big Hug and North Laine Brewhouse.

The Brighton pubs taking part are the Victory, the East Street Tap, the Western, the White Rabbit, Dead Wax Social, the Black Lion, the Mash Tun, the Hope & Ruin, the North Laine Brewhouse and the Fountain Head.


The North Laine Brewhouse will function as the 'hub' of the festival, where beers from all the brewers – alongside its own – will be served.

Niki Deighton, director of the Beer Collective, said: "It's so exciting to have all of these amazing brewers in our city for the whole weekend.

"As well as great beer, each of the brewers will be bringing their own personalities to the party and provide music, food and frivolities all weekend long."
