Never been into one of their bars yet: no rush to change that fact either.

Over priced and over hyped beers in my opinion. I have actually enjoyed a couple of their brews to be fair though.

A bit like the Blue Jays this season then with some homers but mostly strikeouts and misses. How many starting pitchers?

Any decent beer at the Rogers Center to drown your sorrows?

I’ve been to Brewdog bars in Edinburgh, Camden, Nottingham & Bristol, the best was Edinburgh the rest a bit cold and uncomfortable so didn’t linger. The beer is generally good, if massively expensive. They have enjoyed self promotion right from the start, which was ok when they had a point of difference, but now they just look a little foolish.

Sadly, there is nothing I will drink - Bud, Bud Lite Lime (shudder) - Steamwhistle is available as of this year (a clean but boring Canadian Pilsner brewed about a pitching wedge away from the Dome) .. if I were forced to drink something there, I would probably choose a widget can of Boddingtons. Yes, it’s that crap. Not even Carlsberg.

They tend to have a good bottle selection so even if you’re not a fan of their beers and stunts they’re worth visiting as they offer 15% take out on bottles so you don’t have to stick around in their industrial soulless bars to consume them.

I see they’ve got their London distribution centre up and running now.

Anyone heard anything about the location for the planned home brew/bottle shop down here?

It’s about some new distilled beer spirit or some such. It’s called ’WattDickie’ or something and, I guess, it’s a separate entity from BrewDog. Or something. I was distracted by the media rubbish and missed some of the cold, hard facts.
