Help us name the Hogs Back Hog!

In February we commissioned a special mural to be created to represent the Hogs Back Brewery. The very talented, Bristol-based illustrator and mural artist, Andy Council, created this wonderful piece, which manages to capture the essence of the Brewery from the rolling Surrey Hills to the Hogs Back motorbike and firkin sidecar!

It was unveiled at Craft Beer Rising at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane. The piece now hangs in our Meeting Room and has become a key talking point on all Brewery tours. The one thing the piece hasn’t got is a name and we’re wondering whether our loyal supporters might be able to help us!

We’re not looking for ‘Hoggie McHogFace’ or ‘Horatio II’ (the name of the original Hogs Back hog) but a name for the piece and what it stands for. The Hogs Back team will select their winner out of all the suggestions and as well as the pride of having the winning name on display the entrant will also receive a case of TEA and a pair of Brewery Tour Vouchers.

Enter by putting your suggestions in the box below. Deadline for entries 5th April.
