The pop-up restaurant re-invented…

As we approach the end of our Great BrewDog Bar Hunt (be sure and send your suggestions in before the 31st August!), we have some huge news about one of our existing locations – the bar previously known as Dog Eat Dog, in Angel. We have thought long and hard about a new plan for our Essex Road bar, and decided that we needed to switch things up – every single month.

So we are introducing Punk Kitchen; celebrating the glory of London’s pop-up restaurants.

Opening at 12 noon this Friday 26th August, Punk Kitchen will showcase one of the capital’s artisanal foodmakers each month – and the first residents need no introduction to anyone who enjoys a wander through the amazing Broadway Market in Hackney. For the next 30 days we are proud to be joining forces with one of the hottest pop-ups in town – London Laksa.

And Equity Punks - we have a few spaces left on Thursday 25th August for you to attend a very special preview. Head to this Equity Punk Forum link to sign up!

If your thing is amazingly punchy noodles with combinations featuring spicy prawns, tofu, fresh fish and chilli then Laksa is for you. It is perfect late-summer dining – and we can’t wait to have the guys take the helm of the very first Punk Kitchen! Head along from Friday lunchtime to enjoy freshly-cooked Singapore-style noodle soups and curries whilst also sipping on one of ten freshly-served BrewDog craft beers.

So for example, the marinade of the Laksa fried prawns (a blend of curry and coconut) has a fragrant richness that would be offset and complemented perfectly with the citrus and spice in our hopped-up saison Electric India. And the Laksa noodle soup has layers of sambal chilli that would bring out the high points of our flagship Punk IPA whilst the chicken, prawns and fish round out the hoppy hit to perfection. Just ask our trained crewmembers for more pairing tips!

As brewers we love collaborating with other likeminded breweries to make new beers, and with Punk Kitchen we are bringing this ethos to a whole new arena. The guys at London Laksa have blazed a trail in the capital and we can’t wait to begin a month of fragrant, spiced noodles and curries. And for those of you who like Barbecue – stay tuned for our next residents, the awesome Billy Smokes!

Punk Kitchen is located at 21-31 Essex Road, Islington, N1 2SA. Opening hours will be 4pm-10pm Thursdays and 12pm-10pm Friday to Sunday, with the doors opening for the first time at 12pm this coming Friday, the 26th August. Let us know your favourite beer and noodle combo – and if there are any other London-based pop-ups you would love to see take the reins of Punk Kitchen – give them a shout-out! You never know what might happen…

Why can't you do something like this in Aberdeen? There is so much hunger for this type of event here! (And empty units to do it in) but no I e does it. We love laksa!

Yet another bars food announcement released at lunchtime - this must be deliberate ;)
