We came together with a passion to create the beers that we want to drink but to also be a part of the movement. To help drive craft beer forward and to take great, flavoursome beer to the masses

Huglife is our strapline…but it’s more than that. It’s our way of thinking and the way that we are…..the way that we try to live and enjoy our lives and channel that into everything that we do. 

It’s about life. You only get one. Do what you want to do. Go where you want to go. Follow a dream. Communicate. Collaborate. Meet people. Surround yourself with good people. Create a community. Drop negativity. Success breeds success. Travel gives you experience, knowledge. Experiences give you memories. Listen to Music - it soothes the soul. Dance. Work hard. Fail. Go again. Play hard. Everything is good in moderation. Follow your instincts. Trust yourself. Be open. Be careful.

Good things happen when you say yes… Huglife

So we are Hobo’s… a homeless brewery who work with some of the best in the business

Social Conscience


Since we formed in 2014 it was important for us to try and give a little something back, to develop a social conscience initiative(s) with the work that we do in selling and creating craft beer.

On launching we worked with My Green Squares for 2 years and purchased 1 million Sq Ft of rainforest that would guarantee that areas preservation for 12 months.

In 2016, having not been back to Brighton for 9 months, Matt was blown away by the increased numbers of homeless people on the street in Brighton and set up an initiative called Hugs4Snugs. It’s a simple concept but fits with our ‘Hobo’ ethos and allows us to try and help homeless people on a local level to whoever we are working with.

A venue nominates a local homeless charity, we give the venue some free beer and anyone that donates an item of clothing, receives a free beer on us. Hugs4Snugs. Simple. If you would be interested in running an event please contact us, we’d love to hear from you.

Only A Pavement Away
As we search for our own bricks and mortar ‘home’, we are hoping to further our commitment to helping the homeless by working closely with Only A Pavement Away to help increase awareness and eventually become a part of the initiative.
