Surrey-based brewery Hogs Back is contributing to the EU Referendum debate with a specially-brewed ale, Hogswallop, available from the start of May.
A 4.2% ABV, easy-drinking rye beer, Hogswallop is designed to loosen the tongues of ‘pub politicians’ and encourage a lively discourse in the run up to the vote on Thursday June 23.
“Everyone will have an opinion on the Referendum and where better to express it than in the pub, which has a long tradition as a source of useful advice for the prevailing government,” says Hogs Back managing director, Rupert Thompson.
“We hope that the sight of Hogswallop on the bar will raise a ‘rye’ smile from members of both ‘in’ and ‘out’ camps, as they enjoy an amicable exchange of views in their local.”
Hogswallop joins previous Hogs Back seasonal beers marking events of national importance, such as England’s Mourning Glory, which lamented the home team’s early exit from last autumn’s Rugby World Cup, and Hog in the Limelight at the 2015 General Election.
