The South Downs National Park is home to a number of award-winning breweries, producing world-class beer, using chalk-filtered water straight from the South Downs aquifer.

For many people, a walk in the South Downs isn’t complete without a stop in a rural pub, quenching their thirst with something sublime brewed just a few miles away.

Try your hand at making craft beer at Langham Brewery  in Lodsworth and take a tour of their 10 barrel steam powered brewery. 

If you like a little heritage with your beer then Longman Brewery  is ideal. The malt house existed on the farm during the mid-19th century and an inventory suggests it dates as far back as 1538. Longman Brewery use locally sourced ingredients and the spring barley used in the beers is grown on the farm, even their workforce is from within the Cuckmere Valley.

Or look out for beers from Downlands, who pay homage to the landscape around them by producing popular local staples such as Devil’s Dyke, a smooth chocolate porter, and Bramber, an American pale ale, named after the picturesque village neighbouring Steyning.
