With two popular food and drinks festivals – Beer & Cider by the Sea during the spring and Eastbourne Beer Festival, the south west’s biggest beer festival in the autumn – Eastbourne is a real ale lover’s delight.

Both festivals see over 100 real ales, including many from local Sussex breweries, ciders, and perries, along with wines and international bottled beers.

Take your pick from quirkily named brews such as Dragon’s Blood to award winners, all specially chosen by local CAMRA members.

Festivalgoers can also enjoy a range of live music, including jazz, blues, folk and other festival favourites.
