Hogs Back Brewery’s new Hop Ground

On Monday I  joined a number of other volunteers and Hogs back staff for a jolly day planting hops opposite the brewery in Tongham – a new experience for most of us

The group included celebrated beer journalists, Martyn Cornell and Roger Protz, as well as experts such as Dr Peter Darby of Wye Hops, Bill Biddell of the only other Surrey hop grower, Hampton Estates, and brewer Ed Wray whos article on the Farnham White Bine Hop appeared in ‘Brewery History’ recently

Martyn has written the day up beautifully on his blog so I won’t try and do the same, but do have a look if you have time-

I look forward to tasting the fruits of our labour in the fullness of time
