About
Welcome to the famous Hogs Back Brewery, Surrey's largest independent brewery. We are a small craft brewery based in Surrey, situated just north of the A31 Hogs Back road between Guildford and Farnham. A visit to the Hogs Back Brewery is a fascinating experience. We are open to the public for Brewery Tours and summertime Hop Garden tours most weeks, which provide a fun and informative experience with plenty of samples! Our Brewery Shop not only sells our own fine ales in both Brewery Fresh and bottled formats, but also hundreds of other bottled beers from around the world. We have also opened the Hogs Back Tap next door, which serves the freshest Hogs Back beer you can find. Open Thursdays to Sundays you can book a table online or turn up and enjoy a drink. There are delicious Wood-fired Pizzas cooked on site and a programme of events you can find on our website.

This was our first tour visit to this wonderful independant brewery near Farnham Surrey .
We decided to take a taxi ,just as well as plenty of sample beers were offered to our small group of around ten..
The tour guide was excellent and new his stuff and gave a very good insight of how this brewery works .
The tour lasted around two hours and after several glasses of beer and their own lager left very satified .
The site has its out buffet and bar and seating outside was very good .
The shop was well stocked with all the breweries beers
We will be back with the car next time to stock up very soon .

Had a great time on Hogs Back Brewery tour! It was my dads first visit to any brewery and he absolutely loved it. I’ve been to a few large and small brewery tours myself (including Ringwood, Heineken, Estrella & more) and I have to say this is by far one of the best I’ve been to. Very generous with the beer tasting which was great. Lots of interesting information from our tour guide Bruce. Thank you for a great time

Went on the tour with relatives. Good fun. Sampled 4 beers within 90 minutes, and you could have as much as you wanted.

Sampled Surrey Nirvana, TEA, lager and an IPA.

All fresh beers, you really can taste the difference.

Fun guide, definitely recommend.

Get someone to pick you up though as you will be over the limit.

My wife & I have just returned from a 'brewery tour' & have to say that of all the brewery tours we have attended, the Hogs Back, hosted by the most excellent Bruce, is the best we have ever been on.
His knowledge, humour & general likeability, felt like you were out with one of your best mates.
No doubt whatsoever, we shall be back to sample the bar & pizza's.

A belated commendation following a party held at the Hogs Back Brewery in September. The venue was informal and welcoming, the staff were friendly, helpful, efficient and approachable and the abundant and excellent food was cooked on the premises. Thanks to all at the Hogs Back for a very happy evening.

This place gets better and better, brilliant drinks area and informal bar area, plenty of space in three areas, Bar area, barn and outside. We visited after a family walk and enjoyed the atmosphere, beer and the great wood fired pizza. The visit was enhanced by our bar sever Callum, who was friendly and very helpful, brilliant service thank you. Would be 5 star but the beer at £5 a pint is more London priced, would expect it to be cheaper as it has zero miles to travel and no middle man. It’s the only thing that would stop us using the place more often.

Great afternoon with friends - a really relaxing place with a great atmosphere. We got lucky and the sun was out most of the day so we enjoyed the autumn sunshine over some excellent beers and pizza looking out into the fields of hops. Easy to cycle here as the Basingstoke canal and Blackwater trails take you most of the way.

Very interesting and informative tour, coupled with the opportunity to try out several brews. Our guide was extremely knowledgable and provide lots of humour to keep the group engaged. Not one to do if you don’t drink clearly but if you like beer then this is highly recommended.

The Brewery is a lovely place to have dinners, sometimes you need to book a table other time you get a table if you early for an event. Last Saturday and Sunday they held a Festival with more than a thousand people both days. They have several bands. The atmosphere was great. It was very pleasant. The food was yummy as usual.

Staying in the area so booked an evening with friends. Covid safe measures in place. Excellent choice of beer, solo musician, freshly cooked pizzas available. Lovely relaxed evening. We sat inside but plenty of seating outside too! Dog friendly!!
