Our Taproom in Potten End, Hemel Hempstead is situated within the brewery itself. Open six days a week we stock 10 Mad Squirrel beers on tap and the full Mad Squirrel range of cans to take away, plus select wines, ciders, gins and soft drinks. Inside the taproom has seating for 40 and you can look through the tall windows into the brewery. Outside we have a yard with seating for another 40 (plus loads of standing room) with beautiful views over the fields towards Ashridge forest. On Saturdays our pizza kitchen is open and beers can be bought to take away too.

Set within the beautiful Chilterns countryside, with ample parking* the Mad Squirrel Taproom at Potten End, Hemel Hempstead is a fantastic place to start or finish a leisurely countryside walk. The Taproom is dog and family friendly, although we do ask that dogs are kept on leads and children remain supervised at all times.

Two Saturdays a month we run brewery tours in the early afternoon, for details and to book please see here**.

*Cars cannot be left overnight and the gate to the farm automatically closes at 7pm with no access after that point. There is no access to the farm at all on Sundays. 

** During tours the taproom can become very busy and there may be a waiting time on pizzas for walk in customers.
