Friendly buzz. Great service.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Northern Monk - Eternal Session IPA4.10ExcellentA more mellow take on a pale ale.
BrewDog - Ace of Equinox4.50ExcellentSingle hopped with Equinox. Dry fruity pale ale.
Stone - Arrogant Bastard (keg)7.20PoorThis was brewed and canned in Berlin. Not impressed. None of the body or depth of the San Diego original. Shame I bought two cans to take away. I'll more carefully check the provenance next time I try Stone beer.

Genial late night.
BeerABVScoreNotes
BrewDog - Elvis Juice6.50GoodInfused with tart grapefruit it's a refreshing beer with restrained hopping.

Busy and friendly
BeerABVScoreNotes
BrewDog - Jet Black Heart4.70GoodSeems very gas dependent. Tonight, slightly thin with limited mouthfeel.
Stone - Grainiac8.50AcceptableAnother slightly sweet and creamy offering. Shame that we don't see the old Stone favourites so often with all these new releases. (Keg)

Friendly, informed service.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Stone - 24 Carrot8.50PoorBadly misjudged and complicated. Overly sweet and creamy.

Very busy. Clearly the new BrewDog on Castle gate hasn't affected custom.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Stone - Ruination 28.50ExcellentA new incarnation of an old favourite. Different malt/hop balance but still great beer. (Keg)
BrewDog - Hopped-Up Brown Ale6.50ExcellentI'll just quote BrewDog: 'Brown ales are perfect foils for resinous C-Hops, as the piney elements of the latter contrast brilliantly with the sweeter, nutty elements of the malt bill. The best of both worlds.' Agreed.
Stone - Go To IPA4.50GoodLower abv so lacks some body but, as you'd expect from Stone, a huge hop resence and smooth malts. (Keg)
BrewDog - Black IPA5.30AcceptableThis didn't work too well. Starnge mishmash of malt and hops; no real direction.
21 Mar 2015 (McGargle)
Well, in a lined glass I was served short measure - 10mm below. Asked for a top up to be told 'It'll be a full measure when it settles'. Asked again, more forcibly, when it was topped up with such bad grace. A case of the staff being more important than the customer. Not punk anarchy but rampant capitalism.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Wild Beer Co. - Ninkasi7.50AcceptableThe bottled version is a fresh saison enlivened with apple juice and would be 4*. This was muddled: unclear style and the apple freshness was totally absent. (Keg)

Busiest of the craft beer bars.
BeerABVScoreNotes
BrewDog - Dead Pony Club3.80ExcellentAs ever. Painful rebranding to Dead Pony Ale.
02 Feb 2015 (McGargle)
Still like this place but flumoxxed the staff when I asked why beer names hade changed. Not too sure I understand either but I'm guessing; corporate branding. Not quite the Punk way??
BeerABVScoreNotes
Stone - Arrogant Bastard (keg)7.20GoodInitially dull but improved as it warmed in the glass.

Busiest of the craft beer bars.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Tempest - Brave New World (keg)7.00GoodVery drinkable IPA.
Fyne - Sublime Stout6.80AcceptableNothing like as rich as previous tastes. More a modest black IPA on this form.
Stone - Ruination (keg)7.70Not TriedOn the board but finished. Poor marks BrewDog. Ten minutes later board updated. Top marks BrewDog.

The pub is found in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, AB25 1EB.

BrewDog's first bar and well worth the wait. Tidy, minimalist decor. As you'd expect plenty of rough brick and unpainted steel. Limited food at the moment but 6 beers all on keg plus a range of import beers at champagne prices.

We have visited this pub 85 times, seen 120 different beers and tried 78 of them.
