DG is now Fully Licensed

It’s been a long time in the making – new renovations, changes to the menu and a whole new host of events. To put the icing on the cake, as we love to do, we are delighted to announce that we are now a fully licensed premises and are able to offer and array of drinks for every occasion.

We now sell Long Man Beers. Inspired by the beauty of the surrounding natural landscape, environmental responsibility and sustainable farming practices are at the heart of everything we do. All the water used in our beers – approximately 1 million litres per year – is drawn from our own bore hole sunk 60 metres into the aquifer beneath the chalk downs. We use an advanced UV filtration system followed by ‘Burtonisation’ to ensure the water is perfect for brewing. Waste water is treated on site and returned to the land via irrigation. We use ‘whole cone’ hops sourced from Sussex, Kent, and beyond, to give the perfect flavour and aroma. We ‘pitch’ our house yeast into every brew so that we can then harvest and re-pitch from each freshly fermented batch. This not only recycles our yeast but ensures the consistent character in all our beers. A bank of 100 solar panels on the roof of the farm’s grain store generate 25kva of electricity per year to help power the Brewhouse. We believe in supporting local employment and our workforce of over 16 is sourced from the surrounding towns and villages.

Why not come on down and grab a glass of bubbles or a cold beer or cider to finish off these warm days, DG style!
