A Sunday Afternoon in BrewDog Glasgow

Basking in the shadow of Scotland's most iconic museum - the Kelvingrove - BrewDog Glasgow, the latest addition to the family, opened this July. It may have only been open a matter of weeks but already BrewDog's Glasgow bar is alive with the hustle of beer fans, locals and the damn right curious.

Just like our bars in Edinburgh and Aberdeen, BrewDog Glasgow is another lynchpin in our mission to get more people passionate about craft beer. An antidote to the swathes of grubby drinking dens and high street chains that have blighted the availability of decent beer for years on end.

We dropped by on a Sunday afternoon and pulled up a pew in an attempt to get to know the patrons of our Glasgow bar that little bit better.

And here's what some of them had to say...

steven1_322

Name: Steven

Occupation: Analyst

What are you drinking today?: I’m enjoying a pint of Zeitgeist. Different beers lend themselves to different moods, which in the summer usually means a wheat beer, but today I’m feeling very Zeitgeist!

Are you a regular at BrewDog Glasgow?: This is the first time I’ve been to the bar and I’m really impressed so far. When I went up to the bar, the bar staff handed out samples and gave explanations so I could make an informed choice which was great.

kirsty1_380

Name: Kirsty

Occupation: English & Theatre Student

What are you drinking today?: Today I’m drinking 77 lager. It’s the first time I’ve tried it and so far so good!

How do you rate BrewDog Glasgow?: I love the environment that BrewDog have managed to create and I think it really adds to the experience. The bar’s looks amazing and there’s a good mix of people so it’s not as if it’s for one type of person, everyone’s welcome! Oh and the massive windows make it one of the un-dingiest bars in Glasgow which is also a bonus.

andy1_450

Name: Andy

Occupation: Accountant

What are you drinking today?: A pint of 77 lager

What kind of beer drinker are you?: I wouldn’t say I’m a beer aficionado but really enjoy good beer which is why I’m here today.

How were you introduced to BrewDog?: I was introduced to BrewDog by my cousin who is an Equity for Punks shareholder. I think the first beer I tried was Punk IPA which is a proper tasty number. I also think the beers are good value which can be difficult to find; especially when you like drinking in the West End.

phil1_450

Name: Phil

Occupation: Barista

What are you drinking today?: Right now, I’m drinking Hello My Name Is Ingrid

How would you describe Hello My Name Is Ingrid?: Very, very fruity. Perhaps a bit of mango in there, maybe even elderflower. It’s got quite a floral aroma and has a syrupy feel on the palette as well.

What was your first impression of BrewDog Glasgow?: I really like it, I wouldn’t think of it as a local but more of a place where you come to treat yourself because it’s a cut above. It would be great if there were more places like this!

jame1_400

Name: Jamie

Occupation: Coffee roaster

What beer are you drinking today?: I’m drinking Hello My Name Is Ingrid.

Do you think your occupation informs your approach to beer?: As a coffee roaster I’m very aware of how things taste . I don’t buy things that taste shit. BrewDog is for beer what our shop – Artisan Roast – is for coffee. You can taste the passion that goes into beers like this.

Have you been to BrewDog Glasgow before?: Yes, I think this is my third time here. I think it’s absolutely fantastic, a nice setting with a great variety of beers behind the bar. I’ll be back!
