We pride ourselves in offering a great selection of drinks, sourced from local suppliers, to suit most palates. With everything from beer and cider, wine, Prosecco and Pimm's to gin and tonic - we also offer a selection of non-alcoholic refreshments. Our beers and ciders are hand-picked from local breweries and offer a range of strengths and flavours with full tasting notes available.
Please see below for details of the local breweries and companies that we will be working with again this year. The beers that we are planning to provide will be updated as they are confirmed, but one or two may vary on the day. Full tasting notes will be available at the bar. There will also be an opportunity to take some of our favourite beers and ciders home in carry out containers, quantities permitting. We will again be showcasing our bar dedicated to Pimm's, Prosecco, wine and gin! These are locally sourced - details of which are shown below.
We are thrilled this year to be adding an additional brewery to our offering - as well as an additional cider supplier. Full details will be shown here once they are confirmed. Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter for regular updates.
Bill and Richard are qualified Master Brewers who renewed an old friendship to create Firebird Brewing Company. Their Brickworks Brewery in Rudgwick brews examples of the best traditional beers from around the world but is more than just a place to make beer. They have an onsite Shop which sells their crafted beer, a selection of wine and Silent Pool Gin. They also have a mezzanine bar where you are guaranteed a warm and friendly greeting and you can watch the beer being made while you enjoy a pint (or two!) - definitely worth a visit!
Langham Brewery, founded in 2005, is a multi award-winning independent West Sussex micro-brewery producing cask-conditioned real ale. Based in an 18th Century granary barn in the picturesque village of Lodsworth on the Cowdray Estate, the brewery has already secured more than 25 awards for its real ales. James, Lesley and their team now produce over 15 different real ales and welcome visitors for one of their guided brewery tours.
We are delighted to be joined this year by Hammerpot Brewery! Founded in 2005 with the aim of handcrafting authentic premium real ales, Hammerpot Brewery has become an established and proven 'modern' microbrewery. The ales are brewed near the tiny hamlet of Hammerpot, near Arundel, using water from the South Downs and carefully selected hops, malted barley and wheat. Their ales are truly Sussex born and bred - with many of their ales being named after local and historic events. We welcome them to LoxFest 2018!
We welcome back The Crafty Brewing Company! This award winning micro-brewery, based on a farm in Dunsfold, brews and packages every beer by hand. They select only the very best grain and hops and recycle their spent ingredients and by-products by feeding them to their rare breed pigs. Using brewing methods from the past and cutting-edge science and research they produce a range of delicious, fine quality beers.
The Tillingbourne Brewery, located close to the picturesque village of Shere, opened its doors to discerning lovers of fine ale in December 2011. The Brewery is housed in two barn style buildings, has a delightful courtyard feel and plenty of character. They currently have three 17 barrel fermenters which enables them to brew 4896 pints of ale a week.
Mr Whitehead's Cider Company, based between Alton and Petersfield in the Hampshire countryside, produce traditional hand crafted ciders from locally sourced apples as well as fruit ciders, perries, juices and cider vinegar.

Cabin Pressure Spirits are a husband and wife team that produce delicious gin in their cunningly repurposed garden shed in Horsham, West Sussex. Each batch is prepared using the finest botanical ingredients that are ground by hand, steeped in organic grain spirit for 48 hours and then vacuum distilled at an ambient temperature. The result is a remarkably smooth and flavoursome gin. Every bottle produced by Cabin Pressure is finished by hand and presented in an elegant ceramic crock. Only when David and Emily are 100% satisfied are they individually numbered and wax sealed.More Information
Silent Pool Gin is a classic gin at heart, full bodied and fresh with depth, clarity and flavour. A rich and clean juniper-driven spirit, Silent Pool Gin is produced using 24 botanicals and the cool, clear spring-water from the Silent Pool itself. Floral notes of lavender and chamomile combine with the freshness of citrus, grounded with the subtle sweetness of local honey, to create a well-balanced gin that is both traditional and refreshingly individual in nature.More Information
