Blackthorn _ left this review about BrewDog Bristol

A long established BrewDog in Bristol, compared with the recent opening on the harbourside, this has been here for around ten years or so and replaced one that was at one time known as The Sceptre, before having spells as both an Irish themed bar and a sandwich shop.

It’s not especially large inside, and consists of one single, open plan room. Like many of their outlets it’s industrial in design rather than cosy with exposed air conditioning ducting on the ceiling, some type of concrete screed on the floor and rough, unpainted plasterwork in between the large windows, but there is also some exposed stone walling at the rear of the pub and whitewashed brickwork at one end. Seating was a mixture of Chesterfield style padded bench seating in front of the windows, further padded benches set at right angles to form a sort of booth and high tables and chairs. Plenty of hops were hanging from the ceiling, and there was an array of merchandise for sale.

Beer choice was extensive although presumably was all keg rather than cask, and many were served in ⅓, ½ and ⅔ measures depending on their strength. The choice on this occasion was Punk IPA, Dead Pony Club, Planet Pale, Hazy Jane, Hazy Guava, Elvis Juice, IPA is Dead, 90 Day Bock, Cake Cartel, 5AM Saint, Jet Black Heart, Maltgarden Spectrum Street, X Emperor’s Wookies & Cream, Overtone Stuck in a Daze, Beret A Gloom, De Molen Doric & Dutch, Fuerst Wiacex Friction T, MBH Ticker Tape Parade, Workshy Double Junk, Weihenstephaner Helles, Siren CCC Dundee Cake and Moersleutel Vegor. Cider’s meanwhile were Dead & Berried and Dabinett. I opted for the Cake Cartel and the Wookies & Cream, both of which went down very well, although with the latter coming in at the equivalent of £17.70 per pint, you could well argue that it should be pretty good. Overall I am rather warming to the BrewDog chain, and would happily pop in again.

There's not much I can add to pub SignMan's detailed review below, as mentioned before ,a nice location, there were a few empty tables on my late afternoon visit , disappointingly they all had reserved signs on them. The bar itself is what you would expect , typically BrewDog as were the prices, 2/3rds of Elvis Juice at £5.40,great beer though.

This is a fairly bright and airy branch of the Brewdog chain, blessed with a pretty nice waterside location. You enter past a pleasant, shady outdoor seating area which overlooks the water (and the adjacent road), before emerging into a concrete floored room with large windows down two sides, including some that open out like folding doors. High tables and stools are stationed along the back wall before some well stocked fridges, and then the servery, eventually appear. Standard seating is available to the left and front of the room, but opposite the bar, there are a series of high, unpolished stone ledges with uncomfortable high stools, which I didn’t enjot sitting at, plus some wooden bench booths to the far right hand end of the room. The bar has a brick counter front with a stone top and white tile bar back with the usual cinema-style beer board above displaying their complex pricing structure – all very ‘craft beer bar’. Exposed cable trays run around the ceiling and there are a few interesting bits of art on the walls, including an advert for Moor Brewery based on The Descendants’ ‘Milo Goes To College’ album cover. Blackboards can be found all around the room, listing pizza menus, student discount deals, merchandise options and upcoming events among other things. A jazzy soundtrack played throughout my visit and there was a pretty good crowd in for my mid-afternoon visit.
I counted a total of thirteen Brewdog beers listed on the cinema board, plus an additional six guests which comprised five from Odyssey Brewery and one cider. After some quick mental arithmetic, I plumped for the Brewdog Indie, which, like many of these keg Brewdog beers, was okay but somewhat underwhelming. The staff, as in almost all Brewdog bars, were cheery and helpful and clearly know the beers inside out.
I’ve definitely been to better Brewdog bars than this one, but I’ve also been to plenty that were far worse too. I liked the light interior, which counteracted the usual oppressive industrial themed decor these bars tend to adopt, making it feel like a decent cafe-style bar instead, although this feel may obviously change in the hours of darkness. Not bad for a quick stop-off, but I probably wouldn’t consider repeat visits to this one.
