Laine prepares for Brighton Tap Takeover

The Laine Pub and Brewing Company has announced the return of its Brighton Tap Takeover.

The Laine Pub and Brewing Company has announced the return of its Brighton Tap Takeover, the biggest city-wide beer festival.

Taking place in 20 pubs all across Brighton from 22 to 24 October, the festival will feature over 130 craft beers from 22 different breweries, as well as DJs, live music, tasting sessions and ‘Meet the Brewer’ talks.

For the very first time, this year’s event will also feature a 300 capacity beer tent in the centre of the city, located a stone’s throw from Laine’s flagship venue and festival hub, North Laine Brewhouse. 

Laine launched Tap Takeover in 2016, with the first edition of the festival taking place in 10 pubs across Brighton. By 2018, 15 pubs were involved and the event attracted 2,000 guests. Now, following a two year hiatus, the festival is returning for its biggest edition yet. 

“This event takes the large beer festival out of the exhibition halls and puts it into the place where beer tastes best - the pub," says Gavin George, CEO of Laine, which runs 60 pubs of its own. "We’re so pleased to have so many great breweries joining us this year from all over the UK, and each will be curating their own particular brand of pub experience in one of Brighton’s unique pubs. With the addition of the beer tent this year, the event is more ambitious than ever, and so we’re please to have the marvellous Brixton Brewery joining us on this exciting ride.”

Participating pubs include: The Black Lion, The Earth & Stars, The Fiddler’s, The Actors, The Mesmerist, North Laine Brewhouse, The White Rabbit, East St Tap, The Western, The Victory, The World’s End, The Fountain Head, The Tempest, The Mash Tun, The Pull & Pump, Dead Wax Social, The Bath Arms, The Hope & Ruin, The New Unity and The Fortune of War.
