WHAT
These Hills is an intimate, carefully curated two day beer festival taking place in the town of Lewes in the South Downs National Park on the 15 and 16 June.
During the event, you'll have access to limited edition world class beer from a dreamy line-up of our favourite international and UK breweries (see below).
The event is taking place in a beautiful rural location a short walk from Lewes train station and is limited to three sessions.


Alongside incredible beer, we’re serving-up delicious street-food and live music as well as low intervention wine, mead and cider from some of the UK’s finest producers. 

ACCOMMODATION
Lewes is popular with tourists, so hotels and B&Bs tend to get booked-up quickly – so, if you’re looking to stay for the weekend, please book something asap.
