The State is located but a couple of minutes walk East from the Bon Accord bar. It is a very traditional looking boozer with a central island bar. Has a good local feel to it. They offer a small, but interesting range of cask ale - both Scottish & English. On my visit they had a double IPA and a black saison, which were not too shabby at all. Service was prompt and friendly. A worthy stop on anyones pub crawl in Glasgow.

Welcoming pub atmosphere with different kind of people flocked around a large island bar with a few sets of cask ales, all together seven different hand-pumps, including a house beer from Houston. A stylish and likable pub, very busy and joyful late on a Friday afternoon. (visited 13.04.2012).
To sum up my pub crawls in Glasgow: A ratebeerian should definitely do the JDW crawl – no other town has got so many Wetherspoons as Glasgow, I guess. If not that interesting, the two brewpubs, West and Clockwork, are worth a visit. My best list would be 1)BrewDog Bar 2) Bon Accord 3) Three Judges 4) Bruadar and this one – 5) the State Bar.

Not the best selection of beer, but has good service and a lovely big oval bar. Has a lot of TVs so might be a good place to watch sports.

Old looking ale house. Small sittingplaces. A bit too sportminded and unsocial. Selection is not that outspoken.

Some real ales available. Old wooden interior with the bar positioned in the centre, which I like. Atmosphere was a bit quiet on sunday afternoon. Supposed to be very crowdy at other times though.

Traditional Scottish Bar off Sauchiehall Street. Sky sports on multiple TV screens. In evenings very busy with mixed clientele, a lot of them work locally and the atmosphere is vibrant. Quiet during the day and staff who are very knowledgable about beer have time to talk to you. Good selection of beers (mainly Scottish) which are reasonably well cared for. Worth a visit and is across the street from The Hengler’s Circus. Also is only a few minutes walk from The Bon Accord.

Visited 2/07/09. 7 real ales were on offer, a mix of Scottish (including Houston, Inveralmond and Stewart) and English (Tring, Bank Top). Bar staff were friendly and prices were lower than at any of the other real ale pubs we visited in Glasgow.

I have sampled a variety of city centre real ale bars in Glasgow and for quality of beer this along with the Pot Still are the top of the list. The beer is fabulous, always a really good pint. The selection is decent with 5 different real ales Deuchars IPA, Edinburgh No 3 and another 3 guest ales. There is a large screen TV but it is not too loud and out does not get in the way of a night out. It is always busy but the bar staff are efficient enough to ensure that you don’t wait around too long. Not the most exciting place in the world, but a fab pint in a nice atmosphere.
