It’s hard to pick fault with any aspect of this place. The range of beers is eyewatering - all the usual BrewDog suspects on tap, plus guests from the likes of Mikkeller and Stone Brewing Co. Then there’s three fridges of bottled beers - some BrewDog but many other craft beers. Quite simply some of the best beers in the world. The bar staff are very knowledgeable and are very happy to let you try before you buy. Nice ambience - a little background music but the emphasis is on conversation and great beer. Hard to argue with that.
This place is like Disneyland for beer geeks. Crazy selection of beers on tap, many brewdog classics plus mikkeller & Nogne. The finest bottle selection i’ve ever seen (tried as many as I could). Great easy atmosphere to the place, the staff know just about everything about beer and are generous with samples. Hard to see how this place can be topped really.
Great pub. In a region where many pubs serve a local musty ale or a flavorless imported lager this place is an oasis of flavor and service. Drove an hour to get here and it was worth it. Staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and very very helpful.
Cool brewdog bar with wide selection of (mainly brewdog) beers; the only con is that the beer list on the tables afe perfectly useless since completely different selection of bottled beers are available in reality compared to the listed ones
Not the best Brewdog bar but definitely the best bar in Nottingham by a mile. Decent Keg selection, good atmosphere. Not as busy as Manchester and Camden but this is both a plus and a minus. Worth a visit. Best bouncer in the country!
The ambiance may be nothing like a traditional pub but the beer selection more than makes up for the industrial decor. Everything from light 3.8% hop bombs to 11% ABV barrel aged beers are available. Prices are not cheap but neither are they outrageous. As a bonus you can get sips of both Tactical Nuclear Penguin and Sink the Bismarck without emptying your wallet (about £5 each).
If I go back to Nottingham this will be high on my list of places to visit. I am sure it probably gets busy at some point but at 3:00 PM on a weekday it was just myself, the bartenders, and another couple. If you like more company wing by in the evenings when I imagine it gets much busier.
Great bar. Trying to fill that gap in the market between cool places to be and great beer, which often do not come together. Too often great beer comes with a mainly male, older crowd, but we grew up in punk and rave clubs and prefer mixed, mildly "alternative" places and brewdog are trying to create this
