Our bar operator, Tap Social Movement grew out of a passion for great beer and social justice; when the founders saw an opportunity to make a positive impact on society while capitalising on the craft beer boom that is sweeping the UK.
As a social enterprise, it aims to break the cycle of reoffending by helping employees to get back into meaningful work and develop valuable new skills. In sparking conversations about the problem of reoffending that prison creates and the importance of employment in breaking the vicious cycle of criminality, it is working to create long-lasting social change.
Since it was founded in 2016, Tap Social has increased its brewing capacity tenfold, expanding into a second brewery, and its award-winning beer is now stocked in over 250 pubs, restaurants and shops. At Lock29 they will be serving up a selection of IPAs, Pale Ales, Lagers and Stouts, all brewed locally at its base in Oxford.
Tess Taylor, Founding Director of Tap Social Movement, said: “Our whole ethos is based on creating an inclusive and welcoming atmosphere, built around community, which made Lock29 the obvious choice of location for our latest venture. Lock29’s commitment to working with amazing, local independent businesses to create an authentic community hub really appealed to us and it’s great to see how this space is being rejuvenated to bring new life to Banbury.
“We love craft beer and recognise we’re not alone in that – so we’re excited to bring more interesting beer to Banbury through Lock29, where we’ll also be featuring some funky guest
beers for people to try alongside a good range of other drinks on the bar.
