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.



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

DB COVID guidelines for drinking at our taproom

When you drink at our taproom you will be asked to follow the below guidelines;


You must scan in using the NHS Track and Trace App. If you do not have a smart phone, we will still require to take your details but can do so with good old pen + paper!


Now operating as table service only.

Service is via an webpage that you can use on your phone.  Simply order and pay via our website, and one of our masked up team will deliver your drinks to your table.

If you do not have a smart phone, we can still take your order – just let one of our team know!

Please do not move the tables – they have been spaced at least 2M apart.

Tables sit a maximum of 6 people and therefore we would ask maximum group sizes of 6 people please.  This is a requirement due to COVID-19. 

Tables will be sanitised in between uses. Additional cleaning materials are available if required.

A member of our team will be on hand at any time if you have any questions or concerns.


Face coverings are mandatory whilst you are on site with us, at all times besides when you are seated.

Please sanitise your hands on the way into and out of the toilets and prior to eating food.

A member of the team will be frequently cleaning the toilets – so if the door is shut, please wait a few moments. Both toilets will be cleaned by both men & women.


We are not in usual circumstances and therefore if you visit the taproom with children they must be with you at all times & abide by social distancing guidelines.

If you visit the taproom and your children do not safely retain social distancing, we will be forced to restrict our taproom to over 18s only.

Please help us keep this a community friendly space.


We politely ask if you are smoking outside that you are mindful of the guests around you + the ever changing wind direction! Ashtrays are available at the edges of the outside seating areas.

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 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.

Our current taproom opening hours are:

Friday 3pm-8pm

Saturday 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 Taproom 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 Thursday with our list for the weekend.

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 6pm. 

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.

For your reference, there is a small step to access the Taproom (though we are able to open the rollershutter to improve accessibility) and our minimum door width at the moment is 71cm. There are no stairs to access the toilets.
