Getting close!

Howdy folks,

Wow!  What a start it has been to 2018, I know we are almost at the halfway point of the year, but it has been so full of activity and adventure for Bestens it has hurtled by for us.

We are very excited to let you all know that we are settling into our new home in the Sussex countryside, with the commercial launch of our brewery just around the corner!!

Unit 17, Church Lane Farm Estate in Lower Beeding is our new home.  We said a sad farewell to our pilot brewery in Cuckfield, with very fond memories and a huge thank-you to our former landlord, Dave W.

It has been all hands to the deck since we got the keys to the unit, with so much to do to get things ready it has been a bit of a blur.  But the space is shaping up to be the perfect launch pad for our beery escapades.

Keep an eye on this news page and our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter feeds to find out about the official launch and where you can get hold of our delicious range of beers.

Looking forward to meeting you all soon,



Building a brewery? Yes, but building something bigger too……….

Ok, so, Bestens Brewery is not a political machine, nor a platform to influence people’s opinion.  But we are not just a brewery either. We always wanted to produce more than just amazing beers, we wanted to bring people together and support good causes that resonated with us.

We want to do our bit as a small (but ever growing) business to help those that face daily challenges, or, are in need of a little support.

I am writing this as the world has become a more unsettled place. A lot of us are feeling worried about what the future holds, as we are seeing more and more political and economic instability, social divisions are widening across nations & our communities and at times there is a loss of compassion too.

Winter is closing in, and for those experiencing homelessness in the UK the world is already pretty unsettled, but this time of year increases their vulnerability significantly.

That is why on Sunday 20th November 2016, Team Bestens runners will be taking part in the Brooks Brighton 10km, raising money for the The Clock Tower Sanctuary.

The Clock Tower Sanctuary is the only drop-in service providing all-round information, advice and support to homeless young people (aged 16-25) in Brighton & Hove.

You can visit our donation page using the link below, and please give whatever you can spare:

Nano-brewery up and running!

Well folks, the Bestens Brewery 100–litre nano-brewery is fully operational now, with Paul dedicating his time and efforts to crafting the finest beers imaginable.

During this development phase we are working as hard as possible to bring our launch forward to make our beers available to you.  We anticipate that our beers will be available in pubs, bars, restaurants, cafés, shops and outlets across the South East in early 2017.

Watch this space!
