The original Brew Dog bar, though the others have all been modelling on the initial concept. Beer selection is what you expect to spot in their other bars. Lively atmosphere. Nicely priced bottles of lambic are more than welcomed, which is what we usually stick to. As the BD mantra goes, it’s keg here only folks, no cask.

Visited on both the Friday and Saturday nights of the BD AGM weekend, June 2014. Small and compact compared to other BD bars but similar decor, clean and spartan, booth seating around the edges, high and low mix. Good range of BD and guests on tap, service was really good considering it was choca full on our visits. Didn’t really get chance to investigate the bottle list, was easier just to hit stuff on tap, some one off BA numbers from Oskar Blues were a bonus. Overall a solid stop if you’re in town.

Pilgrimage to the font of one of the UK's most experimental, adventurous, fun and forward-thinking breweries. I personally wish BD did some cask-conditioned session ales to round out the roster, but they have a formula or business model and fulfill it well. Their sponsorship of beer events, hosting guest brewers, and partnering with gypsy brewers is admirable. Respect.

I like BrewDog’s bars. Their bars offer a nice departure from more traditional British pubs and also host a pretty solid range of beers. This bar has a nice, industrial feel to it, all exposed brick and steel. It was Hitachino night when I visited so there were five offerings from the brewery to complement the seven or so from BrewDog. Some of the beers are definitely a bit expensive here (£4.95 for a half of some Hitachino) but you can always just get some Punk or 77 Lager for under £4.00. I will say, though, that at £6.00 the cheese and meat platter is an absolute bargain. The bar also has an exceptional bottle list; on this visit we made our way through Cantillon Vigneronne and Iris, Drie Fonteinen Schaerbeekse Kriek and Stone RIS. It was a good night!

Visited Sat night. Way too crowded to be truly enjoyable. Quite big though. Incredible selection of BrewDog brews and even more incredible selection of other great breweries available. BrewDog style deco. High prices.

As others have mentioned, BrewDog’s original bar is surprisingly small. I visited at around 4pm on a Saturday and found the place a bit cramped despite having only 30ish customers. I imagine that an evening visit on a Friday or Saturday would be intolerable. The modest amount of taps here meant that the usual array of guest beers that I’m used to seeing at other BrewDog locations was pretty restricted. There were roughly 12 BD beers on plus a couple of guests from Firestone Walker and Stone. The BD beers on tap were fairly common offerings, so I ended up settling with a half of Dead Pony. Service was a bright spot. My bartender was very friendly, relaxed. Prices were OK for a visiting Londoner. Overall, the original bar has been exceeded by other branches (Sheps Bush, Manchester). If you’ve been to a BrewDog bar before, there’s nothing really unique about this place that warrants a visit. However, it was still fun to check out the original branch.

THE place to go in Scotland to take part in the craft beer revolution. I have visited many, many times. Now that the bar has been open a while the teething issues of supply vs. demand have been ironed out. They pretty much have 12 different kegged beers on tap every time I go. This usually includes 7-8 of the core Brewdog range, 2-3 of rarer/one-off Brewdog tipples and at least 2 American/European craft microbrews. The bottle list, although not the largest in the UK is perhaps one of the best thought out. It’s full of the best American microbrews (Alesmith, Three Floyds, Stone etc), European gems such as Struise and Nøgne Ø and the Brewdog back-catalogue. The majority of the bottle list is as cheap as you can get in the UK (it’s dropped significantly since launch) and for many of the beers the Brewdog bar is the only stockist in the country! The bar hosts beer launch nights, meet-the-brewer events and some live music. The decor has a pretty cool reclaimed industrial look going on. There is no kitchen but the meat and cheese platter is might tasty. To summarise - it’s awesome.

Visited 27.7.2013. A great place to relax, love the quiet athmosphere, good seating areas and the great beer list as well. Mette Marit on tap was a good bonus, first taste of a good BD beer is always welcome. Will revisit for shure.

A fantastic place! My "Beer headquarter" during my three days in Aberdeen. I like Scottish cask ales, but it is heavenly to sit down and enjoy a range of Brew Dog beers and American craft brews.I also spotted 10 different bottles from Nøgne Ø. Excellent service!
