This money can't buy invite includes (at no extra cost) a couple of free pints in it for you, a tasty bite to eat on offer, and a goody bag, as well as the chance to meet other Ale Trailers.

So if you want to be there you have to do the Ale Trail, it's as simple as that.

We challenge you to visit our 5 pubs in Brighton, enjoy two pints of Brakspear Bitter, Oxford Gold or any Brakspear ale, and get your map stamped for each pint.

Visit the Joker as your final destination to claim your FREE pint of Brakspear ale and a rather fetching T-shirt.

Don't feel under pressure to visit all the pubs in the same day, as there is no end date for the Trail.

Oxford Gold by Brakspear

Oxford Gold (4.0%)

English Target hops give this beer a remarkable aroma. Late hopping with Goldings and fermentation by the Brakspear yeast creates a remarkable zesty aroma, a full fruity flavour and a golden colour. Available all year.

Double Dropped Bitter by Brakspear

Brakspear Bitter (3.4%)

A superb session beer. Amber in colour with a good fruit, hop and malt nose. The initial taste of malt and the well hopped bitterness quickly dissolves into a predominantly bittersweet and fruity finish.
