Location of the Ultimate Glasgow tasting and start of thge afters pub crawl. Nice selection on cask and bottles. The burger I had at lunch has to be the best I have had in Europe. Highlight of my weekend for sure!

Visited during RBESG 2007. Some nice beers on tap, but not a huge selection. Maybe a bit too crowded when I visited on a late Friday evening, but otherwise just nice. I will be back, Tom...

Great place. Ended the first night of RBESG there, had the grand tasting on the Saturday there and finished off there on the last day. Decent and well selected range of beer, Brew Dog a plenty, tasty and reasonably priced food and excellent service. Great music too. One of those places you instantly feel at home and a must visit if in Glasgow.

Visited twice during RBESG 2007. General impression: what the others said. Limited but nice selection of cask ales and some decent bottles. Good food.

RoyceH  (32) Hesperange, Luxembourg | August 26, 2007
Visited for RBESG, hit this place on the first night. They had some cracking ales on, stuff I hadnít seen on the rest of the Glasgow pubcrawl, and of course the Brewdog Paradox, which had been brought in specially. A few brewdog bottles too. A little expensive, and can get a bit busy at peak times, but so does anywhere. Cracking alehouse, very accommodating, and somewhere Iíd definitely go back to!

Rastacouere  (664) Montreal, Quebec | August 26, 2007
I visited this place at the heart of the RBESG, so the atmosphere was of course very good and Tom had made sure that the casks included some goodies. My rating can only reflect this and may therefore be a bit more generous than the place deserves, but the fact remains that there was brewdog paradox, a 10% whisky barrel-aged imperial stout sold at 2.75 for a pint from the cask and that the staff went out of their way to ensure we have a good time. A mundane, popular hangout. The food was also amongst the best Scottish Iíve had after 4 days in Scotland.

Nuffield  (108) Roseville, Minnesota | August 3, 2007
Good selection, including some of the more unique Scottish things that are only available in bottles. Three handpumps, I believe. I went twice, and found it a good place to dive in for a drink. The atmosphere isnít awesome--your typical pub, irregular lighting. But itís in a decent corner of Glasgow that was convenient to the University of Strathclyde.

GarethYoung  (26) Glasgow, Scotland | September 20, 2006| Updated January 31, 2007
A decent pub, a few local cask ales on and a modest bottle selection but its nice to be able to buy Orval in a pub. Its pretty expensive since its in the dreadful merchant city, this can also cause the place to have more wankers in it than I am normally comfortable with. Overall not a bad pub, some nice malts as well.
