Decent option in central Edinburgh. Good range of beers, although little difference to the Camden location. Hitachino guest taps on my visit. Like the other BD bars, not much a fan of the industrial fit out, or however you want to describe it. It gets painfully loud in here too (damn, that makes me sound old). Didn’t try the pizzas but heard good things. Enthusiastic staff.

Me and Loz visited here on Saturday 15th March 2014. This was my first time here but hey-ho its a Brewdog bar so you pretty much know what yer’ getting. Polished concrete and a spartan uncluttered feel with a few sort of railway style raised booths. The bar is situated in a dark lower street the greyness of the local buildings perfectly suited to this place. I had an Abstrakt 14 Loz a Dead Pony Club (no surprise there then :-) ) the music featured the likes of Primal Scream & Massive Attack. The barman who served me was very pleasant. It was fine.

My first experience of the Brewdog vision of how a modern bar should be and I had mixed feelings. The stripped back, post industrial look is interesting, but having worked in factories for most of my working life, it didn’t make me feel comfortable or away from work. The beer range is obviously extensive, no cask beers, but kegged and pretty tasty, although really pricey. Seating was difficult, probably due to its undoubted popularity, we squeezed in with Craig, Benji and friends, but we could see that there wasn’t much room for seating. Overall I did appreciate what Brewdog are trying to do and I will visit others, but in the end I would prefer a homelier place.

Familiar BrewDog deco. A bit bigger than Glasgow bar but smaller than Aberdeen one. 6 own brews and 5 guest brews on tap. Excellent selection of bottles. BrewDog doesn’t stand out that much in Edinburgh since there’s so much great pubs around.

Easy to find with central location, however, still hidden away in a back alley of Edinburgh. No football, no Stella, no shots are the messages at the entrance to this medium sized bar. The interior decoration is simple and gives a punk-like impression. The draft menu contains eight of their own and four guest beers added by a rather impressive line-up of international craft ales. A place very much to my liking, and I stayed here for some hours eating and drinking. I had cheese delicately served on a platter and well-crafted, freshly brewed ales from BrewDog. Rather indifferent retro-rock music – strange that they don’t have a stronger punk attitude to the music. Service was alright – a tad better at the bar in Glasgow, though (visited 14.04.2012).

Visitet this place 21/4-2012 on the Garvie Family Pub Tour. This pub has a typical BrewDog Deco, very narrow and a bit noisy, but still a must-visit place whenever you are in Edinburgh and want to have some great beers. They have a nice selection of both own beers and guests beer like from Mikkeller, Nøgne Ø etc. Both on draught and bottles.

My first visit to a BrewDog bar, at my visit I was the only guest, so I had the full attention from the staff. Nice bottled selection as well as all the BrewDog beers you suspect to find.

My goddness what a place! And what a slogun! No live sport. No Football. No Shots. No Stella. You will just love this place. Friendly helpfull staff. And they have everything your heart desire, and a litte bit more. Not far from the city centre. 10 min walk from central station.

2014-07-10. Feels very similar yet different from Glasgow and Aberdeen bars. I like the booths here more than the more open concepts of the others, but it keeps much of the same decor and feel to it. Bar staff are friendly and did a good job of explaining the different ltd BrewDog bottles to me but why not have it on a board? Surprisingly few BrewDog beers on tap today. I guess they were doing a Stone promotion? Atmosphere wise I think I like it the best of the three BrewDog pubs we visited but the beer selection was a bit limited today.
