**Covid-19 & Lockdown**: Due to restrictions, the 'Craft Beer Tour' is currently not running. The 'Sex, Drugs & Brighton Rock - Nightlife Tour' is running on a limited and reduced schedule. We hope that both tours will resume in December. 'Walk!Brighton' is the original and official Free Walking Tours platform of Brighton! The tours were launched in the summer of 2018 by Mike, a Swiss-Swedish-English musician and philosopher who's been living in Brighton since 2002. Mike is joined by lovely bohemian Niamh, a well-travelled anthropologist and bar lady. Both of them are bonkers and mad about all things Brighton! Mike: 'I originally moved here because of the vibrant and fantastic music scene, which I am still very much a part of today - you may even be lucky enough to catch me playing a gig somewhere! I am a craft beer and meditation enthusiast, a huge fan of free walking tours and love traveling myself. As a big history buff- both orthodox and off-track - I have fallen in love with the fascinating, quirky and colourful history of this fantastic city! Niamh: Originally from Bournemouth, I am never situated too far from the beach and have recently moved from Costa del Sol to Costa del Brighton! With vibrant artistic alleys and music echoing through the quirky streets, it’s no surprise that Brighton captured my heart - it was love at first sight! I am an Anthropology/Spanish student and a travel enthusiast, always fascinated by other cultures and getting to know new walks of life. I have offered tours in the South of England and Malaga, so I am extremely excited to embark on this latest adventure of being a tour guide in the culturally rich city of Brighton!
It's time to 'Hop' on the Brighton and Hover-Craft-Beer Tour...! Join us as we visit the city’s most treasured pubs, and dive into Southern England's vibrant pub culture and craft beer revolution.
No place on this planet other than Portland, Oregon, deserves the title 'Capital of Craft' as much as Brighton does! On this tour, we'll take you to some of the best craft beer pubs in Brighton, frequently visited by hipsters, rockabillies and local beer lovers - and we'll learn about the origins of the craft beer movement: from the cozy little hideaways and cellar-like havens, to the jumpin' beer-party halls!
Enjoy the amusing atmosphere of the different local pubs, from the ones brewing on a very small scale, to the watering holes that produce the nation-wide available Laines and North Laines crafts. Wade through the murky waters of the craft beer movement as we unveil the battle between England’s more traditional pubs, and the trendy new craft beer bars that pushed the movement into a somewhat posher direction, much like wine.
On our Craft Beer Pub Tour Of Brighton you will not only learn how a new method of beer-making helped jump-start an entire revolution during the 1980s, but also helped Brighton become the epicentre of the craft beer boom in England, a boom which continues to explode in the taste buds of beer lovers to this very day. And naturally, you will be sipping on some superb beers with your guide!
We will be visiting the origins of Brighton craft beer at the Evening Star, have some exotic stouts at the lively North Laine Brewhouse, enjoy beautiful Scottish IPAs at Brewdog and retire to some truly mind-blowing hop-elixirs at Brighton Bierhaus!
