BrewDog is the type of place you either love or hate, unfortunately I am the latter. the bar is set up a few steps and has hard wooden floors in one large square room with the bar running along the back wall. There are long bench style seats as well as a few normal tables and chairs. This is a big hipster joint so can get filled with a few stranger types who like to play video games but thats up to them. The annoying this is the attitude of the customers and bar staff who all seem to take a know it all self-righteous approach to beer that wares thin rather easily. for example my request for cask ale was met by a response of pity, then sarcasm then an in depth explanation of why keg beer is better, i nearly walked out right then. There are many keg BrewDog pumps on the bar all undifferentiated with the beers being shown on a large illuminated screen behind the bar. their beers are outrageously expensive which they constantly like to defend by explaining how "crafted" their beers are which is highly entertaining but i suppose it makes them feel better and makes their customers feel more important than us mere bitter drinkers even though they are being horrendously fleeced, oh what people will do to seem superior. I went for their flagship Punk IPA (£4.45) which was cold, fizzy and not much else. It did have a nice hop bite and dry aftertaste that I could easily drink more of but nothing i haven't had a thousand times before and a thousand times better in a good hoppy pale real ale. I am not saying it was bad, it was a nice refreshing drink but at £4.45 and all the spiel about what makes it superior really did not impress me. Credit were credit is due they have managed to market their product in such a way that the hipsters have lapped it up by way of them making their customers believe what that are getting is something completed new and unique. more the fool them I say, i wont be hurrying back.

We were in here recently on our "child friendly" pub crawl: my Nottingham-based friends treating their 14-month-old son to his first ever pub crawl. You're never too young to start. I was surprised to find this place included in the route, as we usually go to real ale pubs, but I approached it with what I hope was an open mind.

It was surprising to find an atmosphere redolent of school science laboratories. Less of a surprise to find very cold and incredibly fizzy beer being sold at inflated prices, as BrewDog's reputation is well known in beer drinking circles. As this was the fifth pub of a seven pub crawl, several of us were looking for something at the lower end of the strength spectrum, and plumped for a beer with the enticing name of Dead Pony Club, the only one available at under 4%. This was so cold and fizzy that it was actually impossible to taste it at first, but when it reached a drinkable temperature it soon became apparent to us all that it tasted foul. Not off or sour, just disgusting. Item 3 of the "manifesto" states "beer was never meant to be bland, tasteless and apathetic" - yes, indeed, but then neither was it ever meant to be cold and fizzy, and surely it's also meant to be a pleasurable drink?

There was a stencilled arrow next to the urinals, labelled "Fosters", which would normally raise a wry smile, but in this instance I just felt prompted to pour the remains of my beer in there too.

This is a fantastic V-shaped, now detached, Edwardian looking red brick building, with stone ashlar doorways, stone lintels and sills, with moulded cornices. There are modern BrewDog windows. As the exterior is impressive, so the interior is somewhat functional - an open room in plain brick, grey ceiling, wood floor, with metal ceiling support poles. The lighting looks like a display at B&Q and my old school science high tables and stools, with kegs as foot stools, are mixed with sofas and perimeter seats for the complete ensconcement experience. There is a games machine (XBOX kind of thing). There are no real pictures just a plethora of chalkboards (also taken from my old school?) with various information, such as beer choice, or poking fun at the staff etc. They do bar food. The service was excellent - with the guy being very knowledgable of their beer range and a few young blokes were in. I didn't see a TV and the music was mixed and a decent level. Beer; well, the BrewDog range - but samples were offered and i had a half of something, or other. Not really my decor and not the cheapest of drinks, but it isn't meant to be guzzled like there is no tomorrow. I would pop in for one again - and have to the Brummegem one.
