Bald Venture

Southwater’s first brewery follows in the tradition of a passion for brewing for which Horsham, West Sussex, has been renowned throughout history. Owner and head brewer Keith Donoghue is currently operating on a small scale but with enormous enthusiasm and sterling standards. Baldy brewery cask ales are crafted for all seasons and tastes with new recipes and specials being added regularly.

Beers include Blonde Bombshell (blonde ale); Fiery Redhead (ruby ale); Southwater Special Bitter (premium bitter); and Kiln Dust (a porter and a nod to Southwater’s brickworks history). A healthy demand means that a bigger kit and brewery is in mind. Regular outlets will be the Beer Essentials, Horsham, and the Selden Arms, Worthing. Keith is also supplying local festivals.
