There really has never been a better time to discover real ale with over 1200 breweries in the country brewing over 5000 different ales. But there will be over 230 specially selected beers available at the 24th Sussex Beer and Cider Festival which will be open from the 6th March – 8th March at Hove Town Hall. An excellent selection of ciders, perries and bottled beers from Britain and abroad will be available. The downstairs LocAle bar will only be selling beers from the 40 Sussex breweries.
Tickets for the festival always sell very quickly so to avoid disappointment on the day it is advisable to buy tickets for all the sessions. The ticket price includes a festival programme and for CAMRA members £2 worth of beer tokens on production of their membership card. On Saturday night half price admission will be available to students buying tickets on the door on production of a Students Union card. If you look under 25 please bring ID.
