    Sussex brewery named best in the world

    Burning Sky obviously. The fact that the Americans picked them makes it even better since like football, they have overtaken us in quality beer production. Well done to Mark and his team for embracing innovation, experimentation and above all, inspiration.

      It was best 'new' brewery to be fair. Still an excellent achivement.

      Well deserved, Mark Tranter's rather good isn't he? I'm not sure Dark Star have really moved on from his loss yet.

      I'm yet to have an unimpressive beer from them but Devil's Rest is outstanding.

      As the brewery is still quite small it's not guranteed to be on cask/keg anywhere. However, if you went to The Albert, The Star, Brighton Beer Dispensary and Craft I'd be certain one of them would have it on. If not they'd have bottles. The Snowdrop in Lewes is pretty much 100%.

      Trafalgar Wines on Trafalgar Road carries a selection as well.

      Totally agree. It's amazing the speed with which his brewery has taken off. A real talent. One of the joys of life is going to the pub with die Frau and seeing his limited edition bottles in the fridge. Perfect beer, perfect for sharing.

      The Hobgoblin (London Rd) & The Westbourne (Portland Rd) both have Burning Sky on tap all of the time.

      What do you mean 'since like football'?
      If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice......

      Often on at the Welly in Shoreham too. Mark certainly looked very happy last night at the start of the London Beer Festival they're doing

      NO ! Don't advertise the fact that it is any good, if the Harvey's boys get hold of it there will be none left for us !

      I think he means more in marketing terms and franchising rather than actual ability. If they can take a washed up old underpants model like Beckham and succeed in dressing it up as a good bit of business, it shows some acumen.
