Your best-seller? It’s hard to say just one in particular – we won CAMRA’s beer of the festival with Rambler (3.9%) at Farnham Beerex in 2015 and another CAMRA award for best porter at Woking Beer Festival – both in our first year!

Your personal fave? They’re all great, but my favourite during winter is Forager (4.5%), which was our very first brew, and during summer, Soul (3.9%), as it is so refreshing with a grapefruit edge.

Your most unique? Owlswood is cask-conditioned with English smoked oak chips, juniper berries, coriander seeds and orange peel. All our beer is unique though as it is made in dairy milk tanks (we’re based on a dairy farm!).

One you wish was yours… The Renaissance Boonies Marlborough Extra Pale Ale. We’re loving the New Zealand hoppiness!

What’s next stage for your brewery? We have just launched our brand new brewery and Tap Room. After three years we are expanding to a bigger and better space for more people to enjoy our beautiful surroundings. We’re open through the weekends too – 12noon to 6pm on Fridays and then 12noon to 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

Finally, where’s the best place for people to try your beer? The brewery, of course! It’s so peaceful. The Bluebell pub in Dockenfield also serves a cracking pint, while The Bel & Dragon in Churt have also been avid supporters of our range since we launched in 2014.
