After brewing our first beers under the Pelham Arms in 2016, we opened the ABYSS Brewery + Tap on the other side of Lewes in October 2021. The Davey’s Lane area of Lewes is steeped in brewing history. The Brewery + Tap is inside an old Maltings building that used to serve the South Downs Brewery (still proudly standing next door in Thomas Street). 

On site, we have a permanent Mexican Street Food kitchen curated by Carlito Riestra featuring unique ABYSS inspired dishes and a selection of low intervention wines and cocktails. There is also freshly roasted coffee available from our neighbours Tigermoth Roastery. Plus a host of awesome monthly and special events, find out more on the events page or subscribe to our weekly newsletter. 
New for summer 2023 🔥 FLAME SUNDAYS 🔥 A divine plate of food inspired by smoke, charring and fire. Every Sunday this summer we welcome a rotation of passionate foodies specialising in cuisines from around the world. The ABYSS Brewery + Tap is open 12-6pm and the yard just loves the sunshine 🌝

Come and enjoy delicious ABYSS beers in the heart of the brewery alongside the fermenting vessels it was brewed in. No reservations needed, there's plenty of space inside and out... just swing by and say hi!
