Dark Star secures fifth site

Dark Star Brewing has announced that it will launch a fifth site, this time in Crawley, West Sussex, due to open this summer.

The General Store will be the first to introduce a new concept which will sit alongside the pubs - a bottle shop and tasting room.

Alongside beer, the pub will offer a range of cheese and charcuterie and beer related merchandise such as home brewing kits.

Dark Star Brewing will also deliver beer from the General Store direct to homes in the area.

Heath Ball owner of Dark Star said: "Crawley has always been a priority for us, it was a case of finding the right site and then creating the right offer. This is less of a bar and more of a hybrid between a great off licence and a place people can explore a great range of beer and wines with a little something to eat.

"We'll be introducing a huge range of beer on cask, keg, bottle and can as well as a growler fill station. Alongside the beer, we'll have a world class wine offer and a great selection of spirits."

Dark Star currently operates the Anchor Tap in Horsham, Sussex; the Lockhart Tavern in Haywards Heath, Sussex; the Evening Star in Brighton; and the Partridge in Partridge Green, West Sussex.

In 2015, the brewery announced plans to open 20 pubs in five years.
