New Flagship Bar in Reading

This is a big one! Today we’re proud to announce that construction is underway at what will become our flagship Tap Room in central Reading.

With a target opening of May, we’ll be bringing more than 30 lines of brewery fresh beer to the town centre, in a 3,800 sq ft space in the brand new Station Hill development. Just a stone’s throw from the train station, it’s going to be very exciting to have a space that doesn’t require a fully committed pilgrimage to get to!

The idea behind this expansion is to create a flagship home for our brand. Along with the beer lineup, which will include guest beers from all around, we’re also investing in a high-spec kitchen and top team to deliver tasty, street food inspired accompaniments in a space unlike any in the area. We want to create a home to showcase independent producers of all kinds. 

We don’t want this project just to be for beer drinkers, first and foremost it should be a place that you and your family and friends, and their friends, want to spend time. So wines, cocktails and all kinds of non-alcoholic options will be given just as much attention as the beers.

There is significant outside space, so alfresco pints are definitely on the cards this summer. We’ll be inviting the local community to get involved in a crowdfunder, which will be offering generous pre-paid bar tabs and other exclusive rewards. Sign up here if you’d like to find out more.

The site will be creating new jobs at all levels of experience, including the recruitment of a General Manager. Visit our careers page if this sounds exciting to you or someone you know.

As always, thank you all for your unwavering support. We all know the pressures facing the hospitality sector right now, along with the squeezing of personal finances. We’re committed to pushing forward, trying to create positive stories and experiences, and you all inspire us to keep doing that. Thank you, and look out for more updates soon.
