Cask Pub & Kitchen
Sussex beer geeks regularly travelled up to London’s Pimlico to visit this much lauded temple of rare brews. The owners have repaid the favour by choosing Brighton for their second branch, located in the former Hop Poles/Spotted Dog on Middle Street. The more exotic beers, many from Scandinavian micro-breweries, can be on the pricey side (up to £10 a pint and £25 a bottle), but most rare items are. Sister pub CRAFT is also opening a Brighton branch this year.
