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. Didnít 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 youíre in town.
Good service, you can talk craft beer with them. They know their job and their products.
Good music with good clients around, no one yelling or else.
The food is nice. And there is guest beers in addition of Brewdog beers, thatís awesome. And itís not just regular beers, itís awesome ones!
2014-07-05. Very similar "loft conversion" stone and wood feel as the Glasgow bar, pretty cool graffiti style art everywhere, even more so than the other bars. Booths give some "private" space but it is all very open, most tables are communal style. Our lady bartender was friendly and helpful. Other hipster dude servers were kind of rude about stacking glasses around us, which suggests that despite telling us otherwise that our spot at the bar was likely in the way. We moved to a booth when one became available. Drinking a flight caught enough attention from the locals that a friendly stranger started chatting with us. Tap list had a good selection of BrewDog and guest beers on tap. Feels a bit more raucous and loud than the Glasgow and Edinburgh bars due both to the crowd of people and the openness of the place. I like it, its cool and has good beer but something about the overall experience grates at the cranky old man part of me.
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.
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.
Visited July 4th 2013. Just great!!, atmosphere, beers, service,........Own Brewdog beers on draft and in bottles + great guest beers (Ska brewing from Colorado!!!!), location perfect, walls and bar made of stone, nice wooden small tables. Really do not know what to do much better. Food offering is limited, but thatís not the reason you are visiting.

This is a great addition to Aberdeen... And to Scotland in general ... the Tap list is pretty decent if all keg(but at least sometimes keykeg) ... shame 12 taps but 6 beers ... bottle list is AMAZING for Scotland if a bit pricy... but given the rarity of Dark lord ouside DLD. thats a coup in its self .... personally its a shame no cask. the edge would have been perfect. but there no doubt this is the best bar in Aberdeen. Here hoping rumours of Edunburgh bar come true.
Probasbly the besdt place for Beer in Amsterdam. Got the full lineup from Brewdog, and some great beers from 8wired and Mikkeller also. Small comfy place, with great atmosphere and great prices (compared to Norwegian)
One of the better Brewdog bars Iíve been in, good atmosphere and quite busy; although it was the weekend on both nights I visited. Music was playing but not too loud and whilst busy, you could still find a seat. Selection was decent, a good mix of beers on draft for a change with something for most tastes. Didnít go in for food but I noticed that the bar didnít offer much anyway, other than some basic, cold bar snacks. Still a good pub and one of the best in Aberdeen. Bar staff had some good recomendations too.
