Hogs Back Celebrates Third Hop Harvest

News: November 2017

Surrey’s Hogs Back Brewery has marked the third annual harvest of its own hop crop with a hop seminar in London.

Speaking at Hop Tales and Hop Tails were experts such as hop breeder Peter Darby, hop grower Ali Capper and hop merchant Paul Corbett. Topics explored included hop breeding, the flavour attributes of British hop varieties, the 2017 UK hop harvest and trends in the global hop market.

Hogs Back also claims the cultivation of its own hopgarden is paying dividends, helping to mitigate rising costs as a result of higher hop prices and the fall in value of the pound. The company is working towards taking 25% of its hops from the garden and sourcing 70% from within walking distance of the Tongham brewery.
