Input Needed on Potential BrewDog Bar Locations
With BrewDog Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Camden and Nottingham all rocking and work underway on our sites in both Manchester and Newcastle (both are due to open in April!) our attention has turned to finding the next locations for our craft beer bars.
We are currently looking at 4 sites, and we would love your feedback on these. If you live in these cities or near these potential new sites, please let us know your thoughts on potentially having a BrewDog Bar there. Alternatively, feel free to suggest alternative locations!
1) BrewDog Bristol?
We are currently looking in depth at 58 Baldwin Street in Bristol. A corner site, overlooking the river which was a former bar before becoming an O'Briens sandwich shop.
2) BrewDog Birmingham?
On John Bright Street, just a few minutes from the central station and The Mailbox, we are currently considering this as a location for a BrewDog Bar.
3) BrewDog Spitalfields?
With BrewDog Camden going down well, we are also looking at a 2nd site in the capital. Currently on our radar is 46 Commercial Street near Spitalfield Market in East London. Would this be a good place for London II or do you have any other suggested areas we should be looking at in London?
4) BrewDog Liverpool?
52 Duke Street in Liverpool is also under consideration. Live in Liverpool? We want to know what you think!
Feel free to suggest potential sites for us in either of these cities or other possible locations too!
- Norwich - A fine City that would be awesome to have brewdog here, we have one decent bar called the Belgium monk which serves all belgium beers and that place is packed every night! Brewdog would fit in so well with the people here and I am sure with the university a Brewdog bar would be packed!
Please and thank you!Hank16.03.2012
- Birmingham is definitely worth pursuing. The lads in my office are already crossing fingers that you will do the right thing and enhance the birmingham beer scene. As already said above you will benefit from the New st revamp/passing drinkers; and will also find that there are a lot of appreciative customers in the Midlands. stout9916.03.2012
- Stop focusing so much on growth, there's a few things that needs to be rock solid to facilitate the growth in the future. Support & the shop isn't one of the rock solid factors. lutt16.03.2012
- Belfast tourism is going up and up over here, you could profit from that. Your produce is only sold in one location to my knowledge here so could help boost your presence in the region.
Of your 4 suggestions, Bristol stands out head and shoulders above the rest. It probably has the best demographics for your target market. I'm sure simple market research would back this up.Pumba15.03.2012
- Brighton would be an excellent location, particularly if you could find premises around the Lanes/North Laine. Garrison15.03.2012
- Chester furrylamp15.03.2012
Paul H said "You'd clean up if you opened near Waterloo too." Fully agree... only a couple of pubs providing proper beer. Waterloo is notable for it lack of beer quality.Phil E15.03.2012
- you must re-apply/appeal license for LEEDS bar!! the bars/off-licenses that sell specialist beers are very popular (check out North Bar's various bars and it is rapidly becoming the capital of the North. i am very excited about having a BREWDOG LEEDS bar as are friends of mine. ipi2m2n15.03.2012
- There’s not an obvious place for Brewdog to go in Brum, but this would be a good overall choice. Is the Spitalfields site a bit too south from Shoreditch/Hoxton? Would the New Oxford Street alternative be a better bet?
As for other locations, continue to go for student cities with an affluent and/or cosmopolitan mix. Amongst places not on your original list this could include Leicester, Cardiff, Belfast, Exeter, Bath, Oxford, Cambridge, Norwich and Southampton or Bournemouth.
Within London where the requirement is a bit different perhaps Bermondsey/Tower Bridge, Greenwich or Fitzrovia?
- Surely, Norwich has to be on any list. RMeeken15.03.2012
- I find some of these suggestions quite perplexing. Why would you put a bar where there are other good bars? You wouldn't put a Michelin starred restaurant next to other Michelin starred restaurants would you?
A BD bar is going to be a destination venue. People WILL travel there in the evenings because of the name. Surely you therefore need a combination of cheap lease, potential lunch time traffic from workers and no market saturation.
That's what makes the Bristol location perfect.BlueGiantBeer15.03.2012
- The Bristol location is a tricky one as its an odd area of town that has killed a few good businesses through lack of foot flow. It does benefit from proximity to The Rummer which also sells a good, interesting range of European beers and the fish market pub but that's more for the real ale crowd. If I was to suggest somewhere it would be nearer to Zero Degrees and Colston Yard as your audience are already drinking on that side if town. Stew14.03.2012
- I'm sure I saw a good location in Inverness recently, corner bar and central. Blackfriars is also for sale... Richy14.03.2012
- Birmingham location is great close proximity to the station. As other have mention right next to the Vic, the Island, the alex theatre and just a short walk to the O2 Academy. Shaun14.03.2012
- I love the idea of BrewDog Spitalfields as its about 15 mins away (but so is camden tbh) Id say get one south of the river for a 2nd london site, someone above mentioned clapham and id say they were spot on! a_gnome14.03.2012
- Bring it across the pond! Houston, Texas...Everything is bigger here! VanZan14.03.2012

- I could see Commercial Street / Spitalfields working well. I don't think that you need to be in the heart of Shoreditch or Soho - better to avoid the tourists and mess on a Friday night!
Better still Dalston Junction / Dalston Kinsgland area would really suit a Brewdog bar. The area's more up-and-coming, well connected for transport, the right image and there aren't many proper craft beer pubs until you hit Stoke Newington.Mattheius14.03.2012
- 52 Duke Street, Liverpool - Go for it guys! The area is in transition and you could be part of the new vibe! It's not far from the Bluecoat Arts Centre a major arts venue in the city centre. I'm sure a BrewDog in Dublin would work too. kallen14.03.2012
- Belfast,Northern Ireland
- London fields Reginald Kray14.03.2012
- I can definitely recommend that site in Birmingham.
It's adjacent to New Street Station, currently undergoing massive redevelopment, as well as theatres and cinemas.
The city has a number of thriving alternative or specialist pubs - the Bitters & Twisted chain have two just round the corners, although Brewdog's would be sufficiently unique as to differentiate it. The area is a popular one for drinkers, that's for sure!GoatApocalypse14.03.2012
- Stockholm, Sweden! hainque14.03.2012
- To further re-iterate, Leeds definitely wants brewdog! With it being a fairly compact city centre for a major city you are always going to get a location which is not too far away from some god awful bar/club but there are a number of successful places in leeds doing a good trade in craft beer. Bide your time and get the right place : )
Dont go with the bourbon suggestion above near the leeds academy as its too big and too central. needs to be smaller and in a more inconspicuous location.Bash14.03.2012
- Rotterdam, the Netherlands please...cheaper, easier and much more working class than Amsterdam (and full of more real people and fewer tourists, with just as much cannabis available if that's any attraction!). LB14.03.2012
- Got to be Southampton! Get some bars in the south of the country.
- Duke Street isn't that far from all of the main shopping streets and the ridiculously low rent for that property means Brewdog can invest more into the bar itself. AND it's just up the road from Duke St Espresso, run by the awesome guys behind Bold Street Coffee (best coffee in the city without a doubt). 2 minutes walk from places like The Shipping Forecast, Mello Mello, The Kazimier, Le Bateau, Santa Chupitos and more besides. If the bar and the beer are good then people will flock to it - you only have to look at the ridiculous popularity of out-of-the-way pubs like the Baltic Fleet and the Ship & Mitre as evidence! Ben W14.03.2012
- Bristol would be brilliant, and the location is ace. GO FOR IT! merlinthegrey14.03.2012
- ...on the further east suggestion i just made, to get as good a gig as the proposed shoreditch location but cheaper .... there's a couple of empty pubs on roman road for starters, there's already a few great bars round there: the florist; the palm tree; the victoria ... none doing your gig, but it shows there's peeps and money in the area to excite your cash tills.
i'll keep an eye out for others
punk it up, head eastbeernice14.03.2012
- Oslo, Norway GlennB14.03.2012
- Birmingham deserves craft beer! Location is perfect - you'd be just next to The Victoria (inpedendent pub) and Island bar (independent cocktail bar) - both attract a big alternative crowd. You'd also be next to the Alexandra theatre and the Electric cinema. I'm moving back to Birmingham from London in August - would be great if I didn't have to leave Brewdog behind :D heavygretel14.03.2012
- spitalfields would be a good location re reaching the east end and the hipsters but i fear the rental there is prob on a par with the centre/soho now and camden come to that, as its so trendy ... why not set the trend, be daring and head further east ... broadway market, london fields, victoria park, hackney bethnal gree/mile end to name a few up-and-coming/buzzing locals.... there's quite a few empty possibilities and with the summer fun of festivals and the olympics heading this way, it'd be rude not to, you'd certainly make a mark! beernice14.03.2012
- The spitalfields is maybe a bit south from what I would call the main shoreditch area (only just though). Not huge footfall to other pubs, but your camden location is the same so maybe you dont need that.
If I were Brewdog Id go more into the heart of the hoxton area, (south of hoxton square) where a lot of the crap bars are situated now, as they mostly all sell shit lager except for a few.
Shoreditch is an excellent area for brewdog though and will go down like a storm. As others have said, have a look at the west of clerkenwell (just dont go near craft beer co ;-)Josh14.03.2012
- Another one in Edinburgh please, but not in Cowgate! I can see how this one meets the needs of young studenty types, but just doesn't work for me and my mates. somewhere like stockbridge or leith would be great! activitybug14.03.2012
- Oslo should be a good fit! Craft beer and beer in general have exploded here the last few years. eirikhm14.03.2012
- I hope someday there will be BrewDog Moscow yarvu14.03.2012
- Birmingham site is a great one & you'd sell loads in this city. Mind you Liverpool is also a good site.
- Dundee for me! Also, any plans for moving further afield yet? I agree Dublin would go down a storm. What about other european locations? Sweden or Amsterdam come to mind
- Spitalfields would be a good spot. Other London places would be Borough or Clerkenwell Peterg13.03.2012
- Re. London. Spitalfields would be a good call. Unsure why Kingston gets a few mentions, maybe it's been a while since I've gone there.
South of the river would be good though - London Bridge or Clapham Junction would get a lot of tradedp13.03.2012
- Las Vegas, Nevada. As a frequent visitor to this adult disneyland, I would really appreciate a reality check when I next visit. The now defunct Sahara Casino resort should be up for grabs for a song. There are a few craft breweries in this populllar American shanty town, which are fine in their own right. BUT I NEED THE DOG !!!!
Failing that, there are a few....nah, maybe loads, of vacant properties in the Levenmouth area of Fife. Erm...Ok, Vegas then baby ! Glad to help.SashDog13.03.2012
- Paris, Paris, Paris ...Quick please ;-)
- Agree with some of the comments above. Brighton would be good, and Leeds too..
Spitalfields would be a good location. That building might not be the best location for the majority of city workers, but that might work in the bars favour.
Would also be worth considering south of the river, around Clapham or Wimbledon.scottishpenguin13.03.2012
- Dublin! Dublin for sure. Guinness needs a rival! Rhino13.03.2012
- I must say, I don't agree with several of the comments about the Bristol location. To address some of the points:
- Beerd is not doing a particularly good trade because its a craft beer bar run by a real ale brewery (no disrespect to Bath Ales but they don't know jack about anything other than brown English beer). It's over priced with a limited range of Belgians and common US brands. Colston Yard and Robin Hood are doing roaring trade with a spectacular range of world beers.
- Forget about Clifton and Whiteladies Road, they have no passing or work trade and it would only be worth opening on Thursday to Sunday.
- Stoke's Croft may be suitably 'edgy' but I can't believe it's a craft beer market, more Red Stripe, Zider and a handful of pills. The area's already saturated with bars anyway. The Zazu's Kitchen site is taken also.
- The proposed location is close enough to the river to be different from the other Baldwin Street shit holes. Rummer and Start The Bus do well around here anyway selling a good range of bottled and kegged beers. It will get during and after work trade and because of the water it will have a continental feel, perfect for the summer. It's next to The Glass Boat and Spyglass, both well respected long term Bristol food institutions.
Happy to show you guys around if you ever need a guide (tweet @bluegiantbeer)
- Bristol, Bristol a thousand times Bristol! ollyb13.03.2012
- BRIGHTON. Already two good craft beer venues here, but plenty of room for another.
Lots of people come here on holiday so lots of potential for introducing new drinkers to the cause.
There are places in the South of England outside of London you know!BringBackChaosTheory (Again)13.03.2012
- Brewdog Cardiff would be brilliant. Preferably if you avoided the pretentious and overrated bay area and targeted the city centre. steff13.03.2012
- BirmingHsm location is great. It's near a bit of a hub of places that do good beer and those places get far to busy! Me and a friend were only talking the other day about how well a brewdog would do in birmingham. It has the perfect blend of great ale and a touch of cool. Cmykern13.03.2012
- NW London( e.g. Kilburn, Swiss Cottage) really needs more Craft Beer places.
- The brum location is perfect for the following reasons:
1) easy reach to all stations and bus stops
2) the area in questions needs something to pull in the punters
3) the new new street station entrance and exit will be a stones throw away
4) the new john Lewis store will nearby so will attract weary shoppers
5) close proximity to all city centre restaurants and theaters
6) most importantly it is near my office!dishy13.03.2012
- why no love for Sheffield? boooo hantot13.03.2012
- Birmingham, pretty please? Pete13.03.2012
- with regards to LIVERPOOL:
1. Duke St is part of The Ropewalks area and isn't as out of the way as some make out, its a 5 min walk to Bold St for eg, Bold St is also too central in a way. Yes the mainstream is closer to Bold St but with that comes the wrong custom in addition to sky high rental etc. Not many units in the area fit the Brewdog price range I think
2. The Ropewalks gets LOADS of promotion in the city so people will find out about the bar, word of mouth is more important in Liverpool, the beer is great, the staff are great so people will come find it. Duke St is on the outskirts of The Ropewalks but its on a busy taxi st within walking distance of the main bars/restaurants and even closer to newly built Novotel and soon to come Premier Inn
3. Central Station is the closest station, and is about to undergo a 20million revamp.....
The whole area is being regenerated, ideal for Brewdog in my opinion unless you can find somewhere similar for the money on Hardman St, Renshaw St, Bold Stmc13.03.2012
- Brighton without a doubt, the custom especially in the summer would be immense! doot13.03.2012
- Birmingham is an absolute must! It needs good beer desperately. MikeHaines13.03.2012
- Edinburgh II please! In Stockbridge where I'm hoping to move to soon! Please and thank you. hiddenbadger13.03.2012
- Bristol - I work right next to the site and Bristol and it would be very convenient, but I can't see it working there. I see a lot of bars going bust on Baldwin Street. There are a few other decent bars around the corner (the Apple), but this is not quite part of that area. A few people have suggested Whiteladies Road and Clifton, but the craft beer pub 'Beerd' is not exactly doing a roaring trade, plus that area does not fit with the Punk ethos it is very upper class and home to the largest population of privately educated students.
I do agree with Robbie's suggestion of Stoke's Croft and the Cheltenham Rd area. It is edgy but very trendy. I think the premises for Zazu's Café before they moved up to Clifton might be availableWolfcastle5013.03.2012
- Needs to be Cardiff... you know it makes sense. Alligator13.03.2012
- Belfast or Dublin!! thebeerblokeni13.03.2012
We desperately need more bars selling proper beer. Location good, by Victoria, Theatre, China Towm/Arcadian, Mailbox, station and bus stops.
See you soon in the second city.ISayer13.03.2012
- You should open your next London bar in Crouch End, North London. Not just because I live there but because it's an affluent area in desperate need of a Craft Beer injection, but mostly because I live there. Matt1313.03.2012
- Oxford, will e-mail you a couple of great sites currently going! POC13.03.2012
- Brighton needs and I hope you agree, deserves a BrewDog Bar!
There's a disused nightclub, formerly called New Hero, that could be ideal for you. It's very close to the centre of town, and just a few minutes away from both the seafront and Brighton train station. The venue was also a church once upon a time!Dr. Donk13.03.2012
- DUNDEE!!!!! We looooove Brewdog!!!!!! TheDentist13.03.2012
- Dundee, please Dundee! We need more options than the shops sell and getting to Edinburgh and Glasgow is a pain. I'll be a regular no doubt if you make it happen! Dundee13.03.2012
- Bring it on down to Brighton! Baigent13.03.2012
- The Birmingham location would be perfect - I'd wondered about the premises across the road (previous Gallows Bar/Edwards rock club) but thought it may be too big, but this one (just opposite the previous Gallows bar) would be about the right size.
Location-wise, it's a great choice - when the new New St Station entrance is finished, there will be a lot of footfall and new business in this area, so getting in now would be a smart move.
For existing trade, as others have pointed out, there is already a base of independent business/nightlife in the area - so much to draw the right kind of interested people to the area with The Victoria, The Island Bar, The Electric, and other bars/restaurants/nightlife venues in nearby streets.
Being near the station and city centre (and en route between centre and gig venue The Academy) also makes this a prime location.
I don't think you could make a better choice than Birmingham, as the city is desperately in need of a craft beer bar - although we have good real ale bars & traditional pubs, there's nothing offering a similar experience, so you'd be market-leaders, with a wide customer base of young professionals, students, and beer explorers to welcome through your doors!tania_nexust13.03.2012
- Stick with Leeds, there are a few city centre bars up for lease in good locations. For example there is a bar that used to be called Bourbon which is right next to the Leeds Academy and gets a lot of footfall, as well as being in a nice location. It's listed on this website but I'm not sure how up to date that is. http://www.fleurets.com/pubs/pubs-for-sale-West-Yorkshire.asp Matt D13.03.2012
- Cambridge! You just have to look at the enormous success of the beer festivals each year to see what a huge appetite there is here for craft beer. AB13.03.2012
But this time don't select a crappy little venue in an area with one of the highest crime stats in the city?!?!?
That last location was wrong on many levels. Too small, hide behind the Corn Exchange and next to all the bars where ideots are getting coked up, drinking WKD and fighting...thats why you didn't get a license.HopZine Rob13.03.2012

- SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA USA
THE CITY OF CRAFT BEER!! By the end of this year we will have 65 breweries in San Diego alone! Cheers!THREAT13.03.2012
- For that Birmingham site, keep in mind that although it's right behind New Street at the moment, they are in the midst of completely re-doing the station. The renovations will put that site pretty much right in front of the shiny new entrance (eventually)... Matt M13.03.2012
- Birmingham looks fab (can I please have a job (I'm a chef) etyler113.03.2012
- Brussels!! BrewDog bar would be a great addition to Brussel's beer scene, where there are not enough bars selling non-belgian beer at the time (thank god there's Moeder Lambic!)! BXL13.03.2012
- Birmingham certainly needs you, but John Bright Street has been a very difficult location for some years, somewhat isolated and still looks a bit unloved to me, and I'm not sure the Mailbox is really your customer base (other than BBC workers perhaps). Broad Street is too mainstream but if you could find somewhere nearer the council house/town hall/cathedral I think it would be much better for footfall monday-saturday, and closer to the offices.
Agree others' comments re Duke Street although there are a couple of other more discerning places around there (Monro and Bridewell). Nearer Bold Street would be better for me.david m13.03.2012
- Next stop down from Newcastle is Teesside, and so Yarm could be a good shout. captain haddock13.03.2012
- Birmingham sounds good, not sure about the location though.
Liverpool, right city / wrong location.
For future locations; think one or more universities, cultural quarter, affluent suburbs, significant skilled white collar population, quirky locations full of character
Oxford, Cambridge, Leicester, Reading, Windsor, Kingston upon Thames, Brighton, Islington, Stratford, Southwark, White City
Thinking further afield; Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Barcelona (and thats just A to B, I don't have space to list C to Z!)Nick H13.03.2012
- Like the Brum location, the area's on the up. Liverpool is rather isolated, though. There are places like Ma Boyles up fro grabs near the river, close to the hotels and the centre Reluctant Scooper13.03.2012
- bristol is perfect for a brew dog bar the dawkins pubs were selling brew dog until you pulled it about a year ago and we could'nt get enough of it. would be great to have you back and supplying the south west!
- Berlin would be Ideal
- Brewdog Columbus Ohio USA
- The Birmingham site looks perfect. Great location near to New St station and other good pubs. Cobblers to London and Brighton - they already have craft beer coming out of their ears. BIRMINGHAM NEEDS BREWDOG THE MOST! Dan Brown13.03.2012

- Come to brighton baby! bob13.03.2012

- I live in Lincoln. Its a very historic city that's becoming increasingly modern with the University. New clubs and bars are opening all the time, its becoming a city with a good vibe. But its a black hole for decent beer! Some pubs offer a good selection of cask beers but what our city really need is a haven for awesome beers that people needed knowing about. Please consider a Brewdog bar in Lincoln! I think it is an ideal location for the East Midlands of England. Cheers! MikeHaines13.03.2012
- Singapore - hot & humid - people getting into wine & micro brewed beers. Durian13.03.2012
- I think Spitalfield Market is a little too close to the existing Camden bar. Nice idea for a 3rd or even 4th London bar but something closer to Waterloo / Charing Cross / Victoria would be a better bet for "London II".
Or a BrewDog in Rochester, Kent would be fantasic (for me anyway!)mcarr13.03.2012
- Saltburn-by-the-Sea. The old Ruby Street Social Club has closed. It's a small Victorian seaside town just north of Whitby. A bit of wishful whimsy on my part. What about a mobile touring Brewdog bar? More wishful whimsy. Grahamf413.03.2012
- I agree with JRaemielsly: Brighton is an ideal stomping-ground for Brewdog. Maybe a little small but could this be the location of a future bar?:
- There is a restaurant in Ladywell London SE4 just shut down, would be perfect for a BD bar. On a corner with big glass windows... Ideal! Sgt_Monkey13.03.2012
- In terms of your proposed Bristol location, I personally associate the Baldwin Street area with an older audience! It is popular on weekend evenings though and close to the Apple and the Old Duke, whose current clients I think would appreciate what BrewDog is about.
The Stokes Croft area would be a safe bet in terms of customers who would be regulars. It's famous because they rioted over a new Tesco opening, where a lot of graffiti artists are based and also host to the Peoples Republic. Popular with a younger audience although not very central.
Personally, it would be quite cool to see a BrewDog on the river like the Apple an the GlassBoat. Anywhere close to the river, even on it, would be popular around the time of the Harbour Festival.Robbie13.03.2012
- PARRRRRIS Cybernic13.03.2012

- First of all, Camden is the best choice, that's done and dusted. People in London don't tend to want to cross to the other side of the city when they head out though. So any other place you choose will lose people from other sides. East / West / South, wherever. That's why I suggest go as central as possible. Soho has great parts that aren't trendy or touristy. Or even a bit outside of Soho? Like the Intrepid Fox (completely different kind of place, but I mean it's location). seanlail13.03.2012

- +1 for South of the River in London. There's a foode & drink revolution happening in Brixton, & a stonking venue just waiting for the right types of people: http://www.urban75.org/brixton/features/bradys.html
Though I think you couldn't do poorly in that Spitalfields location - there is a dearth of good pubs but it's always busy.gmehn13.03.2012
- Bristol looks good to me. Adam13.03.2012
- The Spitalfields one would be awesome! BRING IT ON ABE13.03.2012
- Spitalfields is too close to Camden, it'd make a good venue for the future but for now, share the love and head south. Clapham or Putney would be good. You'd clean up if you opened near Waterloo too. Paul H13.03.2012
- Dublin would be great.. Sitting in a pub on saturday and watched as they pulled paint after pint of 5am and Punk.. Your own bar over here would take off!!
- The Birmingham location is a bit away from the other bars I think? I go to Brum frequently and have only been on that side of the station a few times.
Liverpool is a bit out from everything as well really.
That's not to say people won't go to either if they know you're there though!JamesO13.03.2012

S'a good spot too. Nice and close to the station. Handy for pre-theatre drinks if you're seeing something at the Alex or the Old Rep. And while there's a lot of construction nearby at the moment, it'll be an even more desirable site once the improvements are finished.Clare13.03.2012
- Have to repeat what some people already said. Stockholm, that would be awesome. Then I could work for u guys. :) I've promoted your beer for cask a couple of times so would love to actually work for you.
Or open one in Dublin, can work there too. :)Celine13.03.2012
- Belfast! Pete13.03.2012
- Definitely open a bar Barcelona! There's only a couple of craft beer bars here at the moment and both are always busy. Matt197913.03.2012
- The one in liverpool is slightly too far from the main drinking areas, but it is opposite a strippers.
- It would be great to see a Brewdog bar in Spitalfields - Camden is just too far from The City!
Not sure about being so far south on Commercial St though. Its out of the comfort zone for most city workers and the wrong side of the market for Hoxton hipsters.LukeS13.03.2012
- Oxford! Woof! Puzzle13.03.2012
- Spitalfields is a great choice - though ideally I would have preferred south of the river for the second London Brewdog! MykReeve13.03.2012

- Although now based in London, I am originally from Norwich, and we do enjoy good beer there too. Reach out to the country folk - The Fat Cat needs some friendly competition. Martyn13.03.2012
- Yes for obriens in bristol!
- What about Cardiff? Chiefette13.03.2012
The Birmingham location is perfect. It's right next to The Victoria and Island Bar. Both non-dickhead bars which have a good selection of beers and music. Victoria and Island Bar are always rammed so if there's a suitable overspill bar it will be most welcome. It's also right next to a theatre and around the corner from The Electric (independent cinema) and with the New Street Station development finishing soon, they'll be lots of extra foot traffic around that area.
p.s. please don't make people register to leave a comment, I almost didn't :)
Hope to see you guys in Birmingham!deplorableword13.03.2012
- Kingston-Upon-Thames would work for sure dmore13.03.2012
- John Bright Street Birmingham, PLEASE. Though I don't live there any more, Birmngham's my home town and I'd love to be able to go to one of your bars when I visit there. I also promise to send as many people as possible to the bar. morgs30713.03.2012
- Birmingham location is perfect, I pass it every day & the only reason I didn't suggest it was that it's a lot bigger in size than the sites you wanted recommending. It's a wonderful building on a lovely street & within walking distance of the 4 or 5 decent independant bars & pubs that the city centre has to offer. The city is crying out for a bewdog!

- Oxford? Plenty of cash down here. Also home to great old-school breweries (Hooky and Wychwood) and now loads of micros who sadly are churning out very samey fare and could do with a shake up! (With the exception of the cotswold brewing co who have, sorry, trumped your lager!!) Oxford please!!! cas13.03.2012
- There is a empty pub on the river behind John Lewis in Kingston upon Thames. It's been empty a couple of years but would clean up versus the other identikit bars stacked up along the river.
Think of it as your first Greater London Pub- its a good vibrant town with lots of visitors, a big student population, and some rich commuters.
The address would be Turks Pier
Kingston Upon Thames, London KT1 1HN, United Kingdom if you Google it you can see the pub.StillRustic13.03.2012

- Bristol definitely - the area you have selected is PERFECT location. I've gone from living in Aberdeen the year BrewDog opened there, to Camden when it opened, and now that i'm living in Bristol, I would love to think you guys were just following me with great beer! BristolYesPlease13.03.2012
- Stockholm fo' sure, but also York (UK)- great real ale scene already that would benefit from a bit of Craft ale magic. Beno13.03.2012
- Paris or anywhere in france frenchy13.03.2012
- You should open one in Ellon since you're already having your new brewery there. Jonny13.03.2012
- build one in LA ya fucking' wankers!!! silverlake or echo park area... get rich! piston2213.03.2012
- U started in fraserburgh so why not build a bar/office/headquarters n fraserburgh? Shame to move away from where u started Smooch13.03.2012
- Peterborough! kingston13.03.2012
- Im a Uzk resident but I'm still going to suggest you try to break into the American market. Portland, Denver or San Francisco would surely benefit from your wares. Rugby13.03.2012
- A Brewdog bar in Bristol would be great! save me a long journey over to London!
- We need another brew dog in Glasgow! Perhaps on the south side this time! Baws13.03.2012

- Got a bit excited when I spotted Duke Street on your Twitter feed the other week. Didn't think one of my suggestions would be used! hope it goes ahead. Ben W13.03.2012
- The birmingham site is a good move as that areas on the up I reckon somewhere up the top end of new street either the old habittat shop or the whole earth one as they are both empty or somewhere in fletchers walk shasmo13.03.2012

- Spitalfields is a good location. As it is very close to Liverpool St and Shoreditch. I can see this pub being more successful then the Camden pub. Jack13.03.2012
- That area in Birmingham used to be a bit of a dive however with the refurb on New St station it may be a slick move. The top end of New St where post office vaults and the Wellington are maybe good though? A craft beer quarter? A Wallace13.03.2012
- Stockholm! Micke13.03.2012
- Atlanta, GA, USA. Thats my vote... shwortz13.03.2012
- Amsterdam? sjoerd97213.03.2012
- Bristol is definitely a good shout, you guys would do well there.
Maybe take a step further and open one up in Plymouth? Cornwall and Devon are both pretty big on beer, Plymouth would be a logical location.PrepareYourAnus13.03.2012
- Oslo! :D Synnøve13.03.2012
- Birmingham location slightly out of the thick of things BUT I don't think that's a bad thing - it seems from comments that these places are becoming as much destination bars as they are a place for locals to drink in. The main thing for me was that it was near both New Street and Moor Street stations and it's staggering distance from both. simoncarbon13.03.2012
- know Bristol pretty well. sounds like a great location, there are some other bars around there too, will be your most centrally located yet!
Birmingham looks very handy for the station! I pass through all the time. Birmingham needs some more destination bars...definite yes!Stephanos13.03.2012
- So glad you are considering the Bristol Location that I emailed to you a while back. Obviously I say go for it. :D tarcher13.03.2012
- Stockholm, Do it. Do it. Simon13.03.2012
- Spitalfields is too close to your Camden pub, head west, putney, Richmond, Kingston? We do enjoy good beer this side of town..... ;-) raph.basan13.03.2012
- Sheffield - in the free unit in Leopold Square above the Bar & Grill. Would be perfect, with big floor to ceiling windows on both sides. Rich13.03.2012
- Leeds! Leeds! Leeds! Luke13.03.2012
- How bout going outside UK and start one in Stockholm!? Mr Toyra13.03.2012
- the old magnet kitchens warehouse and showroom with decent parking would make a good brewdog pub. Front Street ,Chester-le-street, County Durham. Building has been empty for at least 9 month worth a look.
cheers & happy brewing Keith
