The Twelve Taps is a craft beer and gin bar on Whitstable High Street owned by Becca and Libby. We are a queer-run business and an inclusive space. Our priorities are quality drinks and a quality drinking experience for everyone.

We have twelve lines of cold craft beer on keg, a sizeable craft beer bottle and can list for drinking-in or take-away, a large selection of gins served with matched tonics and garnishes and a seasonal cocktail list. We also serve cider, wine by the glass, and a wide range of soft drinks.

COVID: we are rolling with punches and still standing, but the way we operate as a bar has had to change a number of times in 2020 and 2021. Please read all the info on our website so you know what to expect, and we’ll just keep trying to do our best with the cards we’ve been dealt.

Our range of craft beer and gin changes regularly, often on a daily basis, so follow us on Twitter and Instagram to get the latest news and brews.

Under-18s are welcome until 6pm only.

Dogs on leads are welcome (check out #tapsdogoftheday on twitter and insta).

If you are interested in working at the Taps, we always want to hear from people with bar experience, an interest in craft beer and/or gin, and can work evenings and weekends. Drop us your CV and a covering email to hello@thetwelvetaps.co.uk and introduce yourself.
