The Evening Star, Brighton

I got down to Brighton yesterday. It was a lovely sunny day, but the highlight was getting out of the sun and into a pub. I've long been a fan of the Dark Star brewery so a trip to the Evening Star was long overdue.

As well as Dark Star beers on draught there were guest cask beers and a wide range of bottled beers for those foolish enough to drink them. I stuck to the hand pumps of course, supping American Pale Ale (4.7% ABV), Crouch Vale Brewers Gold (4% ABV) and Thornbridge/Odell Colorado Red at the dangerously strong 5.9% ABV. I should have stuck to the weaker stuff though as I liked the Brewers Gold best.

It's a great pub and very handy for the station so further beer research in Brighton is definitely called for.


  1. Agreed, great pub run by great people!

  2. You should check out the Selden Arms in Worthing then. Dark Star plus guests and all in fabulous condition.

  3. It's always great to have moments in pub and enjoy the life. And I think it's all about great environment of pub that is always cared having cleaning it. The above picture is so good and expresses the environment very nicely.
