History

Dorking brewery was formed by three friends passionate about real ale who, in 2006, began brewing in a garage after purchasing a small brew kit from Germany, which produced just 20 litres of real ale.

After about 18 months, and many brews later, recipes were formulated and a rudimentary grasp of brewing was established.

The next step was to secure premises and purchase a new 10-barrel brew plant. The brewery was delivered in June 2008 and the six months that followed were spent perfecting the brews and mastering new equipment, leading to the first commercial sale in January 2009.

Our
Products

We now produce a range of real ales for pubs and clubs within a 30 mile radius of the brewery. We also sell directly to the public from the brewery. The beer can be bought in 72 pint casks to 2 pint container, we also sell DB One and Red India Ale in bottles.
