The tiny brewery in a Dorking railway engine shed


Graham Henderson and Rob Dixon left their jobs in accountancy and the pensions industry to become one of Surrey's tiniest independent brewers.

Dorking Brewery is situated in a converted railway shed on an industrial estate at the back of Dorking West station.

Their beer is produced using Dorking's own spring water, which filters down through the surrounding hills.

This year, their Red India Ale was voted best beer at the Guildford Beer Festival, and their Ruby Ale won a similar accolade last year, at Woking's Beer Festival.

BBC Surrey Breakfast presenter Nick Wallis went along to meet the new brewers.
