We can’t wait to have you back soon!
We may extend these hours soon, but as we are working on a heavily reduced team, these are the only hours we can manage.
We are also still doing free local deliveries for orders over £30 & shipping nationwide.
Our Tilehurst Taproom features a 12 line keg list, serving up the freshest beers from both Double-Barrelled and our friends. There’s plenty of space to enjoy some beer to drink in with friends or pick up cans to take away. You’ll experience where the beer is made and be served by some of the people that made it. We also serve a small selection of independent gins, wines & soft drinks.
****WE ARE NOW CARD ONLY****
Please note this is a working brewery & an industrial environment.
We occasionally have some awesome street food pop-ups at the Taproom. No tickets required. Here’s what’s coming up in the next few weeks:
*CANCELLED UNTIL MORE CLARITY ON THE COVID-19 SITUATION*
Our brewery Taproom is just on the outskirts of Reading town center.
Buses– We are easily served by the 16, 17 & 28 buses which drop off around the Norcot Roundabout and can be picked up from Reading Station.
Cars– There is plenty of parking, however please note that access to the car park closes at 9pm sharp on Fridays & 9:30pm on Saturdays.
Taxis– Uber does not exist in Reading, so for cabs locally you can pick up a black cab through Gett, or alternatively use our local taxi company 500 cars 0118 959 9999.
Cycling– We have a small bike rack just inside the Taproom door for bike storage. If you are coming from town, we highly recommend cycling your bike along the river. It’s a 25 minute cycle from Reading station; all flat, easy to cycle & very picturesque! There’s a bit more info on that here.

Want to know what’s going to be on tap this weekend? Check out our page on Untappd – we update it every Friday with our list for the weekend & what new beers we have in the fridge – link here.
We do allow well behaved, socialised dogs on leads in the Taproom area.
We ask them to be kept on leads at all times, as an inquisitive dog could easily find its way into chemicals or potentially chew on bits that harm them. And we do love dogs, so definitely don’t want that happening.
We want everyone to be able to enjoy Double-Barrelled, so we do allow children in to the Taproom. However, Double-Barrelled is a working industrial environment and ultimately an adult drinking environment, so please do bear that in mind for the safety of your children & the enjoyment of other guests.
We do serve a small range of soft drinks & have some child friendly board games.
We do not allow “scooting” or “heelies” on site, despite having a lovely floor to do so, please park these up as you come in.
It’s worth noting there is a great playpark 5 minute walk away on the Portman road, a great place to burn off some energy before you visit us!
Please, we do ask no children after 7pm.
We will now be filling growlers in the short time where we are unable to serve draught beer.
Please ensure they are CE marked with 1L/2L and clean.
Unfortunately we are not fully accessible yet due to restrictions on our toilets. It is something we are in the process of planning and should have something in place by the Autumn. For your reference, there is a small step to access the Taproom and our minimum door width at the moment is 71cm. There are no stairs to access the toilets.
