Tap Social Oxford

We’ve got such a fabulous community that has supported us from day one, and helped us grow from our first site to two more. We are so grateful for the local support we’ve received and love being part of this wonderful county.

– Tess Taylor, Co-Founder & Director

Tap Social is my favourite place in Oxford with hands down the best beers. Tess and the team are amazing, and it’s great seeing Tap Social grow year-on-year. I only wish I lived close enough to walk!

TAP Social is nailing it (though I don’t use nails), with great tasting beer and a clear social mission to help those humans chewed up by the prison system to fulfill their amazing potential. Thanks for being such an inspiring example, especially to all of us in the business of making the world radically better.

– Michael Buick, Owner at Pegg Furniture

Tap Social have been so supportive of Cranston Pickles, having me cook up street food regularly and host supperclubs at their Taproom – they are doing such amazing work through their social enterprise too. And of course, while brewing tasty tasty beers! It’s amazing seeing the work they are doing and watching them grow at their different venues – all unique and great in their own ways!

We love Tap Social and have done lots of our own socialising there! A while back we even sponsored the building of the stage at the tap room so they can host live music and comedy.
