Both festivals see over 160 real ales, including many from local Sussex breweries, ciders, and perries, along with wines and international bottled beers.

From ‘Legless Rambler’ to ‘Granny Wouldn’t Like It’, sample quirky brews and enjoy live music and traditional Sussex pub games.

Explore some of the traditional pubs and microbreweries nearby from the village brewed Beachy Head Brewery at East Dean’s delightful 15th century Tiger Inn, to the National Cider Collection at nearby Middle Farm.
