BrewDog Glasgow

It’s been a week now since I moved into my new flat with my sister, and although we’ve settled in nicely (despite a few annoyances like a broken oven and blocked sinks - that have now been fixed), we still haven’t got any internet. It’s all sorts of frustrating, and leaves you feeling very handicapped. I’ve had to resort to going to Starbucks or the Uni Library (where I’m at now) now and again, but still I’ve become so out of the loop. But I suppose that’s not altogether a bad thing! 

So for today’s post is a post that I’ve been wanting to fit in for quite a while, but haven’t got around to writing yet… until now, that is! 

Brew Dog is an award-winning Scottish brewery that does lots of different craft beers. They also have a few bars around the country, where they serve food along their craft beers and ales. The one in Glasgow is located just opposite Kelvingrove Art Gallery in the West End, which is actually very close to my new flat! I haven't been since I moved, but I visited twice earlier in the year - once in April with my mum’s side of the family, and then again in June with my dad and sister - and it’s definitely become a favourite.

I never used to be a big fan of beer, but I’ve learnt to love it - especially ales! Brew Dog has such a wide range of different beers that anyone is bound to find something they like. Out of the ones that I have tried so far, I really like the 5AM Red Ale, which is understandably a classic. The food they serve at their bar is also great. They’ve got a range of burgers and hot dogs, and although I haven’t tried the meat options, my family has assured me that they’re really good. The veggie burger is a vegetarian haggis burger with Scottish red pepper salsa and Isle of Arran smoked cheddar, and it’s really original and yummy. They’ve also got a vegan falafel hot dog, which I actually haven’t tried, but my veggie sister really enjoyed it. Along with your choice of burger or hot dog you get thin paprika fries which are quite addictive. The atmosphere is very relaxed and laid-back, and the staff is lovely, so if you find yourself near Kelvingrove Art Gallery and fancy some good beer and food, Brew Dog is a really good option.
