The concept of Double-Barrelled began when our co-founders Mike & Luci Clayton-Jones got married, back in 2015. With Mike being a passionate home brewer for many years prior, they created their first branded “Double-Barrelled” beer as their wedding favour, as a nod to Mike’s much begrudged surname. Having gifted it to all their friends & family on their wedding day to much positive feedback, they wondered if they could take this hobby a little further. Having loved creating their own brand of beer & sharing their beers on a larger scale than ever before, this idea became the pathway to where we are today.
Now we operate from a 6,400 SqFt warehouse on the outskirts of Reading, brewing on a 24Hl brewhouse made in Burton on Trent, packaging all our beers onsite with our own 5 head canning line, made in Bolton, with our first beers released from this site in November 2018.
We produce a variety of ever changing beers, helped by the passionate and diligent individuals who make up our team.
Our two core beers, are our easy introduction to Double-Barrelled; Parka our 4.5% Citra Dry Hopped Pale Ale and Ding, our 4.9% Keller Lager, made in the ‘Ding for the ‘Ding.
From there, we produce nearly all styles from traditional German hefeweizens, to barrel aged imperial stouts. Nearly all our beers are vegan friendly (with the exception of a few milk stouts!) and we take pride in sourcing the best ingredients to create stand out beers, from grain to glass.
We strive to be known for our dedication to quality, consistency and, in everything we do, do it with passion, care & kindness.
We focus on continuous improvement and believe that there is a beer for everyone – you can find out more about what we stand for on our What Matters to Us page.
