About Us

Beak began life as a nomadic project run by food and drink writer Daniel Tapper, who spent several years honing his recipes with friends at some of the UK’s greatest breweries. The project has since laid roots in the East Sussex town of Lewes where it also runs an award-winning taproom and street-food canteen. Though best known for its hop-forward IPAs, the brewery has established a small but growing mixed-fermentation project, showcasing seasonal ingredients sourced from the surrounding South Downs National Park. Please come and say hi! We're open 9-5 on weekdays (for takeout only) and on the weekend you can drink at our taproom 5-11pm on Fridays and 12-11pm on Saturdays.
