This is a huge pub, incorporating its own micro-brewery, with a commensurately vast range of beers on offer. These are far too many to record or appreciate in the course of a brief visit on an overcrowded Friday evening. Given the nature of the premises, it was surprisingly inexpensive, with a pint of Tennent’s lager costing me a fairly normal price of £3.10. This is definitely somewhere to come back to when it’s quieter and I have more time, and money, to spend.

For an area that boasts one of the world’s best known football stadiums, there are surprisingly few drinking holes around which makes the Clockwork Beer Company seem quite a valuable asset to have on its doorstep.

The exterior looks like a converted warehouse with the Brewery name prominently displayed under a shallow curved gable. The interior is quite modern and spacious with plain décor, subdued tones, bare pine floors and a raised carpeted dining section to the rear under a glazed pitched roof. A glazed section of wall provides a glimpse to some of the brewery apparatus and an open curved staircase leads to additional seating upstairs around an atrium. At the back is an attractive patio garden with a few benches.

There were 4 Clockwork Beers available on my visit, (Amber, Red, Hazy Days Ginger and Original Lager), a brace from TSA (Lomond Gold and Cable Tosser) and Caledonian (Marching Orders and Deuchars), Strathaven Summer Gold and Maclay Oat Malt Stout. The beers were all poured from taps rather than hand pumps and were very reasonably priced. I also had lunch here after a trip around nearby Hamden Park and the football museum and the food was very good, typical pub fayre priced around £6-£8 with a few specials deals at certain times.

Service was very efficient and friendly albeit the place was pretty quiet for a midweek lunchtime (as the photos I have submitted show) but I imagine that evenings would be quite lively with live bands on Saturdays, quizzes on Thursdays and Sky Sports shown in 3D. If there is an event on at the stadium then I would expect the place to be unbearingly busy but out of peak hours, it is certainly worth the 10 minute train journey from the City centre.

I L left this review about The Clockwork Beer Company

The exterior has been repainted recently into a beige colour. Inside it reminds us of many USA micro breweries with various split levels and a curved open steel staircase leading to an upstairs seating area. back downstairs there is on long L shaped bar with many taps serving both their own brewed sled and guest sled from Scottish pressure dispense taps plus the usual array of Guinness, Tennants and other taps. their own ales are not bad and their Oregon IPA was rather good. They had a number of Caledonian ales on along with Maclays Hirsch Bock at 6.1% (brewed under license by Bellhaven). well worth the short journey out by train from Glasgow Central to Mount Florida, then a few minutes walk from there. food is good too.

Fantastic exterior, a bit like an old wherehouse, half white and half burnt orange-ish. There is a beer patio at the back

The inside is open plan with tables for eatin and a huge spiral stair that takes you to a gallery. The decor is modern, the plain wall look with wood floor and Sky TVs, but as these things go, it was ok. The gallery, however, is worse, the brown sofas and arty pictures live with the light pink walls and more Sky TVs, so stay downstairs. The service was great and the clientele mixed and busy, even for a Queens Park match!

Beerwise; well, pretty impressive. The Clockwork stuff itself, whether its home brew or real ale, is so-so stuff; Amber, lager (not on), Oregon IPA, Red and Ginger (sadly not on). They also had Deuchars IPA and McClay Wallace IPA, the Wallace was fine. Better was the Kelburn, a brewery i got to repect while up in Glasgow. The Red Smiddy was good, the Dark Moor and Carte Blanche, excellent.

Without the Kelburn, it would have been disappointing, with it, i would recommend anyone to go
