BrewDog is one of those bars which stands for quality, and style. Interested in keeping the traditional methods alive (it's in their mission statement), BrewDog have slowly come into their own as a bar, which serves proper, crafted beer. They have their own brewery, and they use a selection of local brewies to help stock their shelves. Each beer is distinctive, delicate, and only a little bit dangerous (all good beer is only a little bit lethal - that's part of the fun).
It's hard to believe it, but BrewDog has been open for 12 months already. They threw their birthday-party this week, complete with party staples – jelly, ice-cream, music and games, but every evening feels special when my friends and I drop in.
This beer-lovers bar is home to a rather bright bunch of staff. James, the general manager, is a qualified (it exists), and can tell North German beer from Dutch.
BrewDog have seven types of beer available including the following: Dead Pony Club, 5am Saint, Punk IPA, Libertine Black Ale, Dogma, Hardcore IPA, and Tokyo*. Not only that but the beers are then categorised - pale ales, core ranges, stout and porters.
Not only that, but they have an interactive website where you can buy BrewDog merchandise; they are about building a recognisable brand, which is cool, and which stands for something other than your everyday apparel.
Not only can you enjoy a beer in the bar, all of the beers are available online. If you're local, pop into BrewDog because the atmosphere is irreplaceable, full of people who appreciate good beer, locals who want a quiet drink, as well as the indie crew who know their beers, and who are interested in having a good time, and that is exactly the kind of bar I'm into.
