First stop of my UK shires exploration trip, shortly after landing at Heathrow. This is a working brewery, visible through the upstairs of the two-level shop. The shop had a small selection of beers from around Europe and the UK, and one or two from the US. Their own beers are available in bottles or plastic. Young staff was friendly and enthusiastic. A decent first stop.

Charming small brewery near Tongham village in Surrey. Unfortunately thereís no possibility to drink inside (just tasting). You can buy some traditional ales basing on fuggles hop, directly from the brew. The smallest capacity is 7 pint bottle. Also huge sellection of bottles from all over the world, but thereís nothing really rare. The property has really country character and appearance.

Visited on Sunday lunchtime - 28/10/12. Upstairs barn style loft on the brewery site. Nice enough selection of 2 to 300 beers, largely from the UK but with a shelf of Belgians, a few US beers, and a few others from around the world. Nothing particularly rare. Not the cheapest, but not the dearest, typically matching local bottle shop prices. 2 members of staff in the shop, just my friend and myself browsing, no one offered assistance (not that I needed it) but would have been nice to be asked bearing in mind no one else was there, hence 7/10 for service which was prompt and efficient when coming to pay. Wouldnít suggest trekking too far to reach here but if youíre in the area well worth a perusal !

The brewery is hard to get by other means of transport if you do not have a car. But I was later to find if I had come by car I would not have been able to leave. The brewery is in a nice old school barn or farm yard in what seems to be the middle of nowhere. The shop was a fantastic surprise. Not only a good selection of Hogs Back beers but many from around the UK and a small selection or World beers. The tour is very interesting. The first brewery I have been too that changes the traditional tour format. The brewery is very generous with the beer tastings........glad I didnít drive.

A homely store above the brewery - low ceiling beams are an additional hazard for the tall, besides the steep staircase! Reasonable selection of UK and Belgian beers, nothing rare but a few unusual items. Prices are rather high, but still worth a visit, particularly if you are after Hogs Back products.

Good selection of UK beers both bottle conditioned and pasteurized. Specifically well represented are Hogs Back brewery itself (obviously) and Hampshire breweries, although there is a erasonable selection from Scotland. The Belgian stuff is acceptable with a representation from each of the trappist breweries (Westy 8 available this time) and half a dozen or so lambics in addition to other more standard Belgian ales. The other European stuff is scarce with only 6 or so Germans, 4 or so Dutch and about 5 French. Additionally there are some bog standard Euro lagers. American beer is limited to Anchor (oh and Cave Creek Chili!). Good selection of ciders and fruit wines too. All available Hogs Back stuff can be bought from the barrel and there are approx 6 ciders from the barrel to be bought too. Nice location up some steep stairs at the brewery although the steps are prescriptive for people with mobility issues. Attentive staff although no boxes available on my visit so beer carried in strong plastic bags. Not cheap but worth a visit when in the area.

Visited early evening on one snowy winters day. Didnít try and of the cask offerings but I know they do off sales in various size containers, but they do not appear to have a bar for sampling (I could be wrong?). Shop sells a range of Hogs Back goods (bar towel, glasses etc) as well as their six bottle conditioned ales and about 300 from other breweries. About half the stock and one side of the store is dedicated to interesting UK microbreweries (including some rarities) and over the other side of the store is a sizable Belgian collection of about 100 (mostly fairly easy to find stuff but I noticed Westvleteren) and some US, Dutch, German and a few others. Also there are 20 or 30 bottled real ciders and maybe some draught cider also, also stocked is a range of interesting looking English fruit wines and maybe meads. A few beers in the can be found in the fridge incase you canít wait ítil you get home and they also few interesing looking little snacks. Typical of your standard brewery store but the sizeable collection of interesting UK micros pushes it up several notches. Great.
