Last visited in October 2014. Usual BrewDog industrial style decor but it does feel a little more cosy and less hipster-ish than some other branches I’ve visited. Rather quiet when we visited but it was a Monday evening so I guess that’s to be expected.
Service was welcoming and enthusiastic. On tap were the usual BrewDog beers and not too much in the way of guests. There was only one new draught beer for me so had to resort to bottles after that.
There’s no full kitchen so the food options are limited but the meat and cheese platters are very good.
Definitely worth a visit but, having been in the vanguard for introducing "craft keg" to Nottingham there are to my mind other places that do it just as well, if not better, (and more besides) now - Crafty Crow, Canalhouse, Junkyard for example.
Visited Ocober 2014, with beery friends. Last stop on a great trip, it migth be raining outside, that couldn´t stop us :-). Typical Brewdog deco, not to busy on this monday night. Friendly staff, good selection of beers, both tap and bottle.
A decent but not overwhelming branch of the craft brewery’s pub chain. Typical quasi-dystopian industrial look, but smaller (and far less achingly hipster) than their London mainstays or newer behemoths. Only five beers offered outside of BrewDog’s core range, but by anywhere else’s standards that is still pretty good. A Malaysian street food restaurant sits temptingly in the same building.
The first time I visited this Brewdog I found it ridiculously expensive with the bulk over their bottle beers coming in at over the £10 mark. I’ve since been back and either the selection had changed or the prices were a bit more sensible. I do love a BrewDog bar. You know there will always be some quality beers on ofer.
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.
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!
This is my 3rd Brewdog Bar in the growing chain. It has the stripped down, post industrial theme of the others, which doesn’t really fit in with the building which is fairly pleasant outside. There is little comfort to be had and it was quite cold and on a Saturday lunchtime there was just me and one other person. Very pricey, but obviously it works for them and the normal huge range of kegs and bottles. Not one to return to for me.
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
