Tap it Brewing Company was born out of a love for great beer in 2016.
Nestled away in the industrial area of Southampton, Tap It Brewery has been quietly perfecting modern craft beer recipes over the past few years, some would say it’s a hidden gem. As well as selling our beer at the taproom, you can find our draught and cans throughout the South Coast and available permanently at our sister bar “Coop Micro Bar” in the leafy suburb of Hedge End.
The cosy taproom comes alive in the summer with outdoor BBQs, Bands playing in front of the mash tun and fascinating tours.
Tap It is all about community and sharing good beer and good times, using the finest ingredients to make exceptional beer that can become a focal talking point.
Donncha Burke is the head brewer at Tap It. His passion for brewing started while living in Frankfurt Germany and working in the hospitality sector.
He developed his craft using home brew kits and selling to customers and staff at the bars and restaurants he worked at. The success of these home-brews lead to a full time job offer at Dig Brew co based in Birmingham where his beer California won Raise the bar in 2019. These accolades lead to numerous offers from breweries around the country and Don decided evolution was to be his next Brewery. As head brewer at Evolution Dons beers won two bronze and one silver at Siba Beer X. Since this point he has gone to win a further two gold and one silver Siba with Play Brew Co.
Don joined us at Tap It in August 2020, he sees Tap It at as a great opportunity to grow the brand across the South Cast.
