Craft Beer Co chooses Brighton for its second pub

Pub company the Craft Beer Co is to open its second outlet, with the launch of a pub in Brighton.

The group, which opened its first outlet in Clerkenwell, east London, last June, has taken over the former site of the Florist pub in Brighton's Upper North Street.

Owner Martin Hayes commented: "It has been great watching people's enthusiasm for the concept in London and I have no doubt that people will show the same enthusiasm in Brighton.

"Brighton has a diverse culture and a free spirit, something all of the craft brewers from around the world share. The concept is about bringing together under one roof the very best craft brewers from around the world, including many of those in this country, such as Magic Rock and Thornbridge."

Hayes added that he hoped to announce the venue for a third Craft Beer Co site in the coming weeks, commenting: "We're on track for the roll-out schedule we'd planned when we opened our first site in Leather Lane - it's a very exciting time for the team."
