Black Hen Brewery  
  The Brewery            
               
  The brewery is housed in the building which used to be the doctor's surgery for Newdigate village in the 1930s. It's brick built, cavity walled with slate roof, power, water supply and drainage. What better place to set up a microbrewery? Our brewery produces 50 litres of beer per brew - that's 100 bottles or one barrel. Our first brew was on 19th March 2011 - the day of the supermoon!
