Hop Garden Open Evening 2023 - Hogs Back Brewery

Hop Garden Open Evening 2023

Join us for our annual Hop Garden Open Evening on Thursday 24th August from 6pm - 8pm.

Hop Garden Open Evening

The cones are just coming out now but will be fully formed and ready to harvest!

Join one of the team to learn about the rich history of hop growing in the Farnham area and why Surrey used to be the pre-eminent hop growing county.

Understand why we built our own hop garden, just yards from the Brewhouse, and how we look after our hops.

Discover the different hop varieties, each with their unique character, we grow and which of our beers they feature in.

Learn the important difference between a male and female hop plant!

"Rub a hop" to release the all-important hop oils and much more.

The team will be on hand to show you round and give a free 30-minute talk in the hop garden itself. 

Reserve your free place now and on the evening, turn up anytime between 6pm and 8pm to join one of the team in the garden. 

We'll be offering a free sample of Tongham TEA (brewed with the Fuggles hops that you will see in the hop garden!) or our non-alcoholic hop lemonade.  But we hope you will stay on after the talk and make an evening of it.  There will be plenty of fresh beer on tap and a hog roast.  What better place to enjoy these than from the beer garden, which overlooks the hop garden!

Families welcome.  We regret dogs are not allowed in the hop garden, but are more than welcome in the Brewery Tap and Beer Garden.  No unaccompanied children.  Maximum of 2 people per booking.

The ground in the hop garden can be a uneven, so please wear appropriate footwear.  You will need to walk through a mild disinfectant “boot bath” as a biosecurity measure before you go into the hop garden.

Book now!

If we've whetted your appetite or piqued your curiosity, why not sign up for a Hop Garden Tour proper?  Or volunteer as a Hogs Back Hopper all year round?
