In line with government restrictions:

– Groups are limited to 6 people, or two households – you’re welcome to grab the table next to your friends, but please do not move between tables or groups
All guests from all parties are required to check in to the NHS Test & Trace app upon arrival – if you are unable to do this yourself please notify a member of staff and we will take your details for you
– Our bathrooms will be open if you need to use them, but make sure you pop a mask on before you enter the building

 – We will be accepting payments by card and contactless only, no cash please.

If you are travelling by car, please note that the business park entrance off Wigmore Lane has recently been blocked off.
You can still access the business park by Scours Lane, just beyond the Norcot roundabout.



Sunday 30th May:
Reading Indie Market returns!
14 local artisans and creatives will be set up in the brewery, alongside food from Fink Street Food, and coffee and sweet treats from Anonymous Coffee Co.
The inside of the taproom will be given over to stalls, and we’ll have tonnes of tables set up outside so you can stick around for some drinks before or after treating yourself to some locally made products!
The market, and the bar, will be open 12-5pm.

Our brewery Taproom is just on the outskirts of Reading town centre, at

Unit 20 Stadium Way


RG30 6BX

Buses– We are easily served by the 16, 17 & 28 buses which run from Reading station and drop off just up the road around the Norcot Roundabout.

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. The entrance on Wigmore Lane has recently closed, but you can still access the business park by Scours Lane, just beyond the Norcot roundabout.

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 at 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.

Covid update: unfortunately, due to social distancing constraints, tours are currently not running. All tour vouchers will be extended for the same amount of time that our tours have stopped running for.

Please keep an eye on our social media, where we’ll announce when tours are able to start again.

Our taproom is open:

Fridays: 5-8.30pm
Saturdays 12-8.30pm

For all your beer needs outside of these times, you can order for delivery via our online store. We ship nationwide, as well as offering free local delivery on Fridays.

We’re proud to host some incredible street food vendors during our opening hours every Saturday. You can see above for our current line up. If we do not have street food vendors during your visit, you’re welcome to order delivery to the taproom.

We LOVE dogs, and allow well behaved, socialised dogs in the Taproom area.

However, we do require dogs to be kept on leads at all times.

Children are welcome at the taproom until 6pm. We serve a range of soft drinks, and have some family friendly board games. However, Double-Barrelled is a working industrial environment, and ultimately the taproom is an adult drinking environment, so for the safety of your children, and the enjoyment of other guests, we ask that children are supervised at all times.

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.

We sell our own branded stainless steel growlers, or are more than happy to fill your own stainless steel and glass growlers, as long as they are CE marked as 1 or 2 litres. Please clean your growler before bringing it in for filling.

We purge our growlers with CO2 to help ensure they are kept as fresh as possible.


Unfortunately we are not fully accessible yet due to restrictions on our toilets. It is something we are in the process of planning.

There is a small step to access the Taproom via the main door, but we are able to open the roller shutter to improve accessibility, as this does not have a step. Our minimum door width at the moment is 71cm. The toilets have step free access.
