Evening visit. Surprisingly quiet.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Laine - Brighton - Yippee Ki Yay4.90AcceptableLike many a home brew here had that metallic twang back taste, so is this from the brewing process or the storage/dispense?

Headed down towards the Concorde for the Eagulls gig. Big pub with lots of empty spaces. The two of us took up a long table meant for about ten. Good atmosphere though.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Dark Star - Original5.00ExcellentExcellent condition. Nice but given the full on brews that we'd had at the craft beer co, it seemed quite mild.

Evening. All low lights, even little candles in glasses in front of each pump clip making them damn difficult to read.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Laine - Brighton - The Lock In4.60AcceptableA staff brew with pineapple. The pineapple came through but the beer had a more overpowering metallic edge

Big boozer. Well, big pub with a hippy-café feel to it.

The pub is found in Brighton, East Sussex, BN1 4AA.

Once known as Gloucester, opened as a brew-pub in September 2012, in premises that formerly housed a nightclub. It is a very large barboarded premises on several levels, with the brewing equipment prominently visible behind the bar. The beers were initially contract-brewed (mostly at W.J. King & Co. in Horsham, or so it is said), with the in-house brewery coming on-stream in early 2013. 12 handpumps in 3 banks, each of 4.

We have visited this pub 13 times, seen 49 different beers and tried 13 of them.
