The first Craft Beer Co opened in Clerkenwell in 2011, but there are locations all over London, as well as one in Brighton.
I’ve been to the Brixton one a couple of times and I’m a big fan of the Brighton one. I’ve mentioned before on this blog that I’m a big fan of Lilley’s Cider and they often have it on tap in Brighton.
I decided it was finally time I tried the food at the Brighton Craft Beer Co – Big G’s Burgers. Having seen people eating in there before, I was super keen to try the burgers. They look SO GOOD. Having tasted them, I can now confirm they taste as good as they look!
I went for the Big G’s House Classic which is a beef patty, bacon and cheddar. I’m quite traditional when it comes to my burgers – bacon and cheese is pretty much what I gravitate towards and this burger did not disappoint.
The size was great – not too big that you can’t eat it with your hands, but not too small that you’re still hungry. The burger was juicy and full of flavour. It cost £11 which I think is good value for money, considering the size of the burger and the amount of filling.
On the side, I had regular fries and I ordered the garlic and cream cheese mayo on the side which was EXCELLENT. Definitely get it for chip saucing.
Another thing I love about Craft Beer Co is the staff are super friendly and helpful. Always chatting about what drink you are ordering and offering advice. Plus, often the people I meet in there are friendly and want to have a chat, which I love! There’s nothing worse than a pub where everyone is unfriendly and avoiding eye contact. Overall, I’d say the burgers were ace and the atmosphere is great, 10/10 would eat again.
