Hop Garden tours now open

Whilst we wait for Brewery tours to re-open, we will be running Hop Garden tours between Friday 17th July & Sunday 30th August. This will be a unique opportunity to visit the garden and still enjoy a sample or two of Hogs Back ale. Click here to find out more and book your places.

Brewery tours postponed

We are postponing tours for the time being.  We will be contacting everyone already booked onto the tour, starting with those booked for March and April, and giving customers the opportunity to book a tour later in the year.  

We will also extend the expiry date of unused vouchers by 6 months. Issued Brewery tour vouchers can also be used when booking a Hop Garden tour.
