It was an Annus Horribilis for the Royal Family, John Major was at Number 10, Gary Lineker played his last game for England...and Hogs Back Brewery was born.

To mark its 25th anniversary later this month, 10 pubs near the Surrey brewery will be selling its flagship beer, TEA, at 1992 prices – around £1.30 a pint.

Managing director Rupert Thompson said the celebration on August 24 also shows how heavily taxed beer is.

"We're delighted to be celebrating our quarter-century with some very local pubs and their customers, who will be able to enjoy TEA at 1992 prices for one evening," he said.

"The fact that duty and VAT paid on a pint of TEA today are, at £1.36, more than the total price of a pint 25 years ago serves to highlight the high taxes charged on beer and we're sure will gather drinkers' support for the brewing and pubs industry's request for a cut in beer duty at the next Budget."

TEA remains the brewery's best-seller, winning awards including a Gold Medal at the World Beer Awards earlier this month.
