Based on a farm in the countryside near Capel, Dorking Brewery is an independent brewery on the Surrey and Sussex border.

Dorking Brewery moved out of Dorking town centre and into a converted countryside barn just down the road Aldhurst Farm, a working dairy farm, at the end of 2017.

They produce a range of easy drinking ales including Pilcrow Pale, a citrusy sensation that’s currently their best seller; DB One, an easy drinking pale bitter; and Black Noise, a chocolatey porter. 

Owner Neel Singh was previously in the Royal Navy and their flagship lager is made in partnership with the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, with 5% of the trade price going to support servicemen, women, and their families.

Dorking Brewery’s brewing process is as natural and environmentally friendly as possible, using just water, grain, hops.

Ninety-seven per cent of their grain comes from East Anglia, and their spent grain is taken 15 metres down the farm to be fed to the local dairy herd. 

As well as being able to enjoy Dorking Brewery’s beers in pubs, beer shops and direct from the brewery, you can order online and they offer next day delivery of in stock beers to all Surrey customers.

They’ve even be known to host the occasional supper club inside Dorking Brewery, with fellow Local Food Britain members Hill House Farm hosting regular events there.
