Longdog Brewery is Basingstoke's family brewery. Established in 2011, we brew a wide range of cask and bottle conditioned ales from individual recipes, using traditional ingredients, locally sourced wherever possible. In 2019, when Rod and Jenny took over, we were keen to build on the established reputation for quality hand-crafted beers, continuing to brew the established favourites and excited to introduce new recipes, developed over a lifetime of home brewing.
The Longdog team consists of Rod and Jenny who have worked hard to push the brewery forward and have ambitions to transform it further. Various part time employees help out regularly in order to help us to pursue these aims and keep the brewery running smoothly.
We focus on cask and bottle conditioned ales that taste good, and showcase the traditional ingredients of malt, hops, yeast and our rock-hard Basingstoke water, drawn from the chalk aquifers that surround us. Because we brew in modest 1000 litre batches, we can offer a broad range of beers, with something for everyone. Ranging in strength from 1.5% to 6% abv and from golden pales to our famous jet-black Lamplight Porter, we guarantee we have an ale for all tastes and occasions.
