Brighton Dome welcomes Bedlam Brewery as new bars partner

Award-winning local company Bedlam Brewery has been selected as the new brewery partner for Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival and will be on tap for gig-goers and visitors to Brighton Dome from today (24 January).

Bedlam Brewery will supply freshly brewed pilsners and ales to each of Brighton Dome’s two existing bars. The new partnership sees Bedlam Brewery join the venue at an exciting time as the ambitious capital redevelopment project continues to take shape. This will see an additional two new bars open in the beautifully restored Grade I listed Corn Exchange and Grade II listed Studio Theatre once the project is complete.

Maxine Hort, Director of Operations for Brighton Dome and Brighton Festival said: “We’re delighted to welcome Bedlam Brewery to Brighton Dome as our new bars partner. As an award-winning local Sussex company with a strong focus on sustainability, community and diversity, we felt that they were the ideal fit for our venue. I’m sure their brews will be a big hit with our customers as part of a great night out at Brighton Dome.”

Bedlam Brewery, based in Plumpton near Lewes, has a reputation for quality and has produced several award-winning beers. On tap at Brighton Dome will be Bedlam Pilsner, Benchmark Sussex Best Bitter, Wilde East Coast Pale Ale and Turtle Recall.

Danny Hoskins, Sales and Marketing Director at Bedlam Brewery said:

“We are thrilled to be working in partnership with Brighton Dome to supply brewery fresh beer and offer the best customer experience at one of Brighton’s most iconic and creative venues.  A first for Bedlam, we’re producing tank fresh beer, direct from our brewery only a few miles away on a farm near Plumpton.  We brew from our Solar Powered brewhouse and we’re looking forward to working with Brighton Dome to explore ways to highlight and improve sustainability and community values and offer a quality, exciting experience.”
