Higgs Brewery was a commercial brewery in Reading, Berkshire, UK. Also known as the Lion Brewery (not to be confused with the Reading Lion Brewery), it was located on Castle Street near to St Mary's Church, the road entrance to the Broad Street Mall and The Hexagon.[1] The pub's tap, known as "The Lion Brewery Tap", was located adjacent to the brewery, running through to nearby Hosier Street, and at one point featured livery of the Marlow-based Wethered's brewery.[1][2]
