This was our first ever site, set up in late 2016 and home to our first 1000L brew kit. In January 2017 we opened the doors to the taproom, and since that time we've grown to Tripadvisor's #1 nightlife destination, hosting a wide range of events including live music, festivals, yoga, community fundraisers, weddings, business conferences, live wrestling, and everything in between.
Grab a hand stretched pizza from Proof Pizza while you're here - made with sourdough bases from our bakery.

“My husband and I have always loved Tap Social so when we got engaged it was top of our list. Tess was incredible! She held our hand every step of the way, was happy to meet with us as often as we wanted. She went above and beyond in every element of the day. She had fantastic ideas about what to do on the night. On the day, her and the incredible staff decorated the whole venue and took care of everything. It was a wonderful experience and I could not have wished for anything other than what Tess and the team created for us!” Lucy and Joe
