A little comfier than many in this chain, which is a pleasant change, still has the stripped out, industrial feel but also feels a little warmer and friendlier. Bare bricks and trunking, nice flooring, it has the feel of a market stall in places. Decent place to visit.
Visited in February 2012. A quite intimate and cosy - in as far as any BrewDogs bar will ever be cosy - branch of the chain.Only 12 taps on the go - 9 of their own and 3 guests. The guests were Brooklyn Lager and a couple of other not so remarkable imports that I didn’t note down. Turned out they only had 8 of thier own beers on tap as, when I ordered the only one of them I’d not had before, I was told it had gone. Shame they hadn’t got round to removing it from the board or replacing it with something else. The remaining BrewDog taps were standard selections. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Food is limited, presumably because of limted kitchen facilities, but the Pieminister pie and mash (served in a cardboard carton) provided the quick bite we needed at this stage of the evening. May once have been a trailblazaer but, on this showing, is falling some way behind some of the local opposition in terms of beer range. Still a nice enough stop but it’s hard to escape the feeling they’re happy to cater to BrewDog fanboys & casual craft beer drinkers than hard core beer geeks.
Typical brewdog in the industrial style. Typical range of mostly ininteresting ones of their own, and some guests. with usual bottle range

This Brewdog is in one of my favourite bits of the city under the bridge near the Quayside. Glass fronted so you can see life in the street, this chilled out Brewdog has a nice feel to it with a mezzanine level overlooking the bar. Beer list is fairly standard but has a range of guest beers from around the country, from London to Aberdeen. Staff were friendly and helpful. Only local beer was from Almasty, but it was very good.
Obviously there are going to be standard aspects being part of a chain, however I’d say that this seems to be the most chilled of the Brew Dogs I’ve been to. Helpful and friendly staff. Last time I was up in Newcastle I had the meat platter for supper as I was on my own and couldn’t be botheres to find anywhere else - it’s OK but food is not what they’re about. On another occasion went with a colleague who ordered wine - that got a laugh from the barmaid. Said colleague tried about 5 beers before settling on one she didn’t finish.
Similar in style to other Brewdog locations, same sort of music playing. Perhaps a slightly larger list, and they had just done a Best of Britain tap takeover, so there were some interesting beers on. Staff were friendly and helpful, and generous with samples. Centrally located. Pricey. Worth a stop.
