cool pub in business location. they brews a lot of craft beers and serve some bottle beers. their beers are highly drinkable, but not amazing. worth a visit, but a bit expensive.

Ambiance: Big pub, quite ok. Service: If you meet the brewmaster - he is knowledgeful and really nice, the bartender doesnít know English too much but heís trying his best. Selection: Brewdogs, some other European crafts in the fridge, lot of taps with Bosphorusí beers. Food: n/a. Value: Huge prices - but it is Turkey.

Somewhat quirky brewpub with sitting in large tent. Seven interesting local beers on tap, really high prices. Service fine.
Good place for wealthy beerhunters.

Not far away from Gayrettepe metro station. Pleasant downstair brewpub with nice view to brewery equipment. They had 7 own beers on tap + few of world class and many foreign bottles (+ bottle of Gara Guzu), everything a bit overpriced. Stuff was very friendly and respecting of our beerhunt strategy :) Worth a visit!

British style downstairs bar, cask versions of their own beers. Also have bottles of Gara Guzu beer. As good as it would currently seem to be in Istanbul.

I didnít really enjoy my time at the Bosphorus Brewing Company. The waiters were quick but their pacing around was a bit odd. I also didnít get the feeling they were into beer which is not the case at most beer bars let alone a place that brews their own. The beers werenít overpriced as far as craft beer goes but considering the quality of the beer they werenít worth the going rate. A 10% percent service fee is included, so extra tipping isnít necessary. Iím glad I got to try some Turkish beer, but I wouldnít come back here even if I lived in Istanbul. There just wasnít much positive about my visit.

Spent an evening here in April 2015. Easy enough to find, seems to be a business part of town, close to he metro. Lots of brown wood and brick, busy place, probably holds 70 people. Didnít try the food but lots were eating. 6 of their own beers on tap and a reasonable selection on bottle. Menu is on iPads which is a nice touch as it gives lots of info on each beer. Beer themselves are ok, way overpriced, 24 to 26 lira if you want a pint, which is Ä10 at the exchange rate at the time. Probably the best beer bar in Istanbul but bring a credit card if you have a thirst.

We had a layover in Istanbul so I checked RB if there are brewpubs in the city to visit. And this seemed to be the only one. It took a while for the cab driver to find it (even with the name and address) but after couple of phone calls there we were. It was Saturday night so the place was quite full. I heard more English than Turkish spoken so it was quite a surprise when the waiter came and didnít speak any English. With the sign language I was able to order some beers. They had iPads in every table for ordering but we couldnít get them working. I tasted all the beers they had available and we had some food. I was expecting a bit smaller bill but Iím not complaining. For an American style brewpub the beers were not that great but itís not that easy to find better ones in Istanbul. I would visit again (if ever in Istanbul).

Kind of difficult to find at the end of the street. Nice wooden decor with the brewing equipment clearly visibile, conservative but not in faux english/irish pub style. Service was good and attentive and got the feeling that people really cared about what they were doing. Beer is kind of typical solid but not outstanding american brewpub but an unexpected and pleasant surprise in Istanbul. Specially liked their pale offerings, really well hopped and sessionable. Didnít get the chance to try their food. Ah, the have handpumps!

The only place in Istanbul that had decent craft scene, besides few liqueur shops. Nothing special in bottles, but the fact that you can try their own brews,makes it special. They have IPA, Pale Ale, Stout, Dopplebock, lager and blonde, all in reasonable prices. Great food as well. Very nice place in general.
