Finally, after years of trying, we have managed to get a beer in here. Since the old Cask pub and kitchen closed we have visited Brighton 3 times before and due to a combination of refurbishment, odd opening hours and private functions not once have we got in, but now on a quiet Easter Saturday afternoon we entered the hallowed ground. There is a pleasant, laid back vibe, plenty of seating and terrific bar staff, willing to help with your choices. The beer range is big, as you would expect, with plenty of variety. Glad we made it this time and may have more luck in the future.
Visited on a Saturday evening in November 2015. A nice CBC, quite a small place with seating in small rooms around the bar and an upstairs area. Managed to get a table as it was fairly busy this was a good achievement. Great range of beer on as youíd expect from a CBC venue. Ilkley featured on the hand pulls. Could do with keeping those with beer on as quite a few turned around but still a healthy sign. Like the place and would definitely pop in if in the area.
In a quiet location in Brighton, dodgy mustard coloured walls, nice staff, standard Craft Beer Co selection (which is pretty excellent, really) and the bottles are a lot cheaper than in London. Good place, but the least impressive CBC Iíve been in so far.

Reminiscent of CBC Islington I think. Lots of open seating and tables. Great bottle selection especially focused on local London stuff like Kernel, Partizan and BBN. About 7 or so cask taps and another 18 taps. Not a great deal of variation like other visits to other CBCís. Taps seem to be dominated buy Kernel, Westbrook, Omnipollo and Amager which Iíve pretty much all had on past visits. And a fair few taps not running tonight. I like the coming soon sign though. And the cheese fridge looks epic which the others Craftís definitely donít have. A good addition indeed
Great place, modern clean, no nonsence interior, big L shaped bar, with a lot of seating area, old mantelpiece in place. Very service minded personell behind the bar at my visit, good mix of visitors, as well of beers. A must if in Brighton.
