Visit Lewes – the team behind the Sussex Gin & Fizz Festival - are pleased to announce BREWHAVEN, our first Sussex craft beer festival,  in the atmospheric surroundings of Newhaven Fort.

To celebrate the fantastic and diverse craft beers made in our special part of the South East, we’ve invited 15 of the best  to showcase their products and sell direct to the public at this exciting new event. There’ll also be some great local food producers serving delicious treats to help soak it up. You'll find a full list of food and drinks producers below. 

There’ll be live music throughout the day courtesy of the fantastic Lewes Ripple, who are busy curating an excellent line up of talent to bring to the party.

Our daytime session, from 1 – 5pm, will be a laid back, family friendly event with the Fort’s playground open to keep younger visitors entertained. The café will be serving soft drinks, ice cream, snacks and sandwiches, while our brewers present their wares under the cover of an amazing WWII Romney Hut.

At the over 18s only 6 – 10pm session, we’ll crank up the festival atmosphere with even more fabulous craft beer, great food, music, sea shanties and DJs.

Ticket numbers are limited to ensure a safe and spacious experience for everyone, so get yours now by following the link below. They cost just £10, with £5 tickets available for under 18s at the afternoon session only.
