Beer and Cider by the Sea

Eastbourne Beer Festivals

Covid-19 Update

 

Due to the Covid-19 situation, the Eastbourne Events team have taken the difficult decision to cancel Beer & Cider by the Sea, with no suitable options for alternate dates in 2020. We fully hope to return as normal in 2021.

Designed to celebrate and compliment the return of the October Beer Festival to a new home at the Welcome Building whilst giving you the opportunity to sample some of the finest local Beers, Ciders and Ales that Eastbourne pubs and the surrounding areas have to offer.

Running from August to November, we’ve hand-picked the best pubs for real ale, traditional cider and even checked the nearest public transport routes home.

Choose from over 30 perfect pubs and idyllic inns around Eastbourne and our surrounding countryside for a discovery of some of Sussex’s best local ales and ciders.

Pick up a stamp at 20 pub-stops and you’ll be on your way to claiming your free festival t-shirt, sponsored by Harvey’s Brewery. Stamp five more (25) and you’re in with a chance of winning one of two exclusive Harvey’s Brewery tours for you and your friends.

The tour comes to end with a closing night celebration on 1 November at The Eagle, South Street.
