Beer’s up at the Hanover Beer Festival

Ah, Hanover. The hilly enclave with the ice-cream-coloured houses that’s beloved by students and libertarian Brightonians alike. If you live in Brighton then you’re probably already familiar with the area’s infamous Community Noticeboard not to mention the neighbourly spirit (and random hilarity) that comes with it.

But you might not (yet) have experienced the delights of Muesli Mountain’s Hanover Beer Festival. Well, you can change that this year. Tickets have just been released for the two-day festivities – heaps of hoppy fun guaranteed. And if the last years are anything to go by, you’ll need to be quick as they tend sell like *insert appropriate beer-related pun* (i.e. really really fast).

Back for its 34th (!) year, the charming charity festival lands in the Hanover Community Centre on 6th and 7th October. Yet again, the event’s fabulous curators have selected some of the best, and most unusual, beers (including vegan and gluten-free offerings) to bring to Brighton.

Your ticket includes your very own festival pint glass (very collectable!), tasting notes, branded pencil and your first pint. And don’t worry if you’re not a lover of the brown stuff, there’s plenty of cider, perry and wine available, too. You can’t say fairer than that. It’s possibly the best night out in Hanover – just look at those happy faces! And, with proceeds going to the Community Centre, too, you’re getting pissed with a purpose!

You can continue the party afterwards at any of Hanover’s brilliant pubs, from Haus on the Hill to The Geese and The Village (if you can’t face more hills).

Friday 6th and Saturday 7th October 2023; 7pm – 11pm; from £12
