In September 2019 they took the plunge and opened The Weather Station in a quaint back-street pub in Central Reading that used to be known as the Eldon Arms, a few hundred yards SE of the town centre.
The Weather Station boasts 20 keg and three cask lines, and is typically stocked with just over 50% Wild Weather beers, with the remainder populated with a great selection of heavy-hitter guest beers. Yesterday I sampled a Garage IPA and a Staggeringly Good DIPA, and my last visit before lock-down was graced with two different Amundsen “Dessert in a Can” Impy stouts on draft.
The pub has seating for perhaps 10 socially distanced groups, and the staff are waiting at the door to show you to a vacant table. They have just released a great smartphone app, enabling you to order and pay for beers to be delivered to your table, as well as for take-away.
The Weather Station was a very welcome addition to the Craft Beer Scene in Reading, and I thoroughly recommend that you check them out!
