Hogs Back Brewery is a local brewery in Tongham (near Guildford but nearer to Farnham), south east England, and named after the nearby Hog's Back ridge. The brewery started in 1992 as a joint venture between two friends, Martin Zillwood-Hunt and Anthony Stanton-Precious. Growing rapidly since then, it now produces 40,000 pints per week and supplies over 500 outlets.


Hogs Back Brewery has won over 40 awards for its beers over the years. Most notably TEA was voted "Best Bitter" in Britain in 2000 and in 2006 A over T was voted "Supreme Champion Winter Ale of Britain", both by CAMRA.
