Hogs Back Brewery image

Hogs Back Brewery currently brew over 200 brewer’s barrels which is in total 57,600 pints a week. The original brew house was in one part of the complex of the 18th century farm barns which house the brewery today, this creates a rustic backdrop to the business of brewing ale.

Hogs Back have expanded rapidly and improvements have included re-equipping the fermenting room, extending the storage facilities and enhancing the brewery shop. Since the first brew the outline of the brewery has remained essentially the same, but it has been extended several times. The brewery used to be a logical process flowing through in a straight line from malt intake through to racking and bottling. Over the years the Mash Tun, Copper, FV’s and CT’s have been replaced and expanded to increase the capacity from the very small 10 barrel plant to a 40 barrel plant.

As for their malt and hops, they used to have to buy in all their malt pre crushed from outside suppliers which then arrived in 1 ton pallets of individual 25kg malt sacks, but in September 2012 they finally expanded this side of the operation by the addition of a 30 tonne capacity silo for pale malts and their very own mill on an automatic malt transfer system that will be programmed for each brew and will automatically take the correct amount of malt for each brew and only need a small amount of human handling for the addition of their speciality malts.

Must be 18 years or over.
