The estate where local people refused to call last orders

The Bevy, a community-owned pub in Brighton, “is about creating an institution to bring together a fragmented community.” One of over 100 pub co-operatives throughout Britain, the Bevy is unique in that is is on a suburban housing estate. As such, it had huge power to add value to a struggling area, and it has done just that. Several years in, the Bevy acts as a community space, pays a living wage to employees, and welcomes all for good conversation and good beer.
