Brewery Tap

Our new Tilehurst tap room 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.




Our opening hours are as follows;

Fridays: 4pm-9pm

Saturdays: 2pm-8pm

Please note this is a working brewery & an industrial environment.


In the run up to Christmas we are happy for you to collect from the brewery outside of our taproom hours for TAKEAWAY only.

Our brewery tap is just on the outskirts of Reading town center.

Buses It’s 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 on Fridays & 7pm sharp 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 tap room 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.

Our tap room & shop hours are as follows; Fridays: 4pm-9pm Saturdays: 2pm-8pm

Due to our current licensing restrictions unfortunately you are unable to purchase beer from us outside of the hours currently specified.


We do not currently serve food at the tap room aside from the occasional street food pop up (check schedule above)  but if we don’t have a street food trader on site, you are more than welcome to order in takeaway through Deliveroo/Just Eat or bring your own snacks!

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 tap room 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 tap room. 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 do not currently offer our draft beer to take away.

We are working on a solution for growlers, to ensure that by the time you get your beer home, it’s in as good condition as when you tasted it at the brewery. Please bear with us!

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 tap room and our minimum door width at the moment is 71cm. There are no stairs to access the toilets.
