AN Award-winning brewery is fully back in action after spending lockdown delivering its beers.

Brighton Bier has now reopened all three of its pubs across the city – with a twist.

Haus On The Hill, in Southover Street, Brighton Bierhaus in Edward Street and Freehaus in Howard Road have all poured their first pints after emerging from lockdown.

Founder and head brewer Gary Sillence said: “We started providing a beer home delivery service across Brighton and Hove on the first day of lockdown and it was wonderful to see how the city supported us.

“It also gave us plenty of time to work out the best ways to reopen the pubs and how to make them even better.”

Brighton Bierhaus, near the Pavilion, is the brewery’s taproom and was voted local Camra Pub of the Year, along with selling more than 20 draught beers and ciders.

The team has recently installed some giant fridges with a range of rotating local, UK and international beers and ciders.

Pub director Ollie Fisher said: “Through lockdown, the importance of providing a delivery and takeaway service to people was really apparent and with the closure of Trafalgar Wines last year and other bottles shops we wanted to do our utmost to expand this offering for customers in Brighton.”

The Bierhaus now sells more than 120 different bottled and canned beers including a range of German and Belgian beers. From tomorrow, the Bierhaus will start its new weekly “Drink In” events where people can enjoy the packaged beers in the pub at reduced takeaway prices.

They can all still be delivered straight to your door through Brighton Bier on UberEats and Deliveroo.

The Haus On The Hill has reopened with a redecorated sun terrace. General manager Ali Charlesworth said: “It’s been easy to apply social distancing measures as we have two floors and the garden. What’s been great since reopening has been the feedback about how well we’ve kept the pub atmosphere and seeing the rave reviews we’re getting for roasts on a Sunday, even in this hot weather.”

General manager of The Freehaus Conor Harrison said: “Danny O’Shea who previously ran the wonderful Bus Stop restaurant in town and now manages the kitchen at the Haus On The Hill, took over the Freehaus kitchen in August with a new delicious meat-free menu – everyone loves his quesadillas.

Operations director Stephen Whitehurst said: “Since reopening all three pubs, it has been fabulous to see the hard work and diligence all the staff have shown and how much customers are enjoying it.

“We’re immensely proud of all their efforts and how seamlessly they’ve adapted to table service and the new normal.”
