Hogs Back to open a Summer Bar

As an initial trial before opening a taproom in our new kiln next year, we will be opening a Summer Bar starting from Friday 5th July, 5pm – 9pm. After that it will be open on Thursday and Friday evenings, 5pm – 9pm, Saturdays 12pm- 9pm and Sundays 12pm – 4.30pm throughout July, August and September. The canopy will be the bar area with ordering and beer collection taking place from a new counter in the shop.

Prices will be £3.50/pint for cask ales and £4.00/pint for keg ales with a 15% discount for Tongham Tea Club members.

A new bar dispense area with classic pub handpulls has been built in the shop and the canopy is being developed with new lighting, heating and a sound system. 

Rupert Thompson says: “We’re delighted to be able to offer our customers the chance to enjoy a pint at the brewery when they visit the shop or come on a tour or just when popping past on the weekend. The canopy makes a lovely casual space to enjoy a pint full of hops grown 200 yards away and brewed in the room next door!”

Official Launch night: Thursday 18th July, 5pm – 9pm

After our launch weekend we are happy to announce that we have booked the brilliant Sam Carrington from The Frets to officially open the bar on Thursday 18th July. Fresh from last weekend’s Samfest, Hop Harvest Party regular Sam will perform an acoustic set under the canopy for a nice relaxed event. 

We hope to see you there this summer!
