and the bars that i've been into (shoreditch, shepherd's bush) are awful places, too.
This will sound really patronising, and it isn't meant to, but do you like thinks like olives, anchovies etc, ie quite 'divisive' flavours? The kind of bitterness that BrewDog wanks itself into a frenzy over isn't for everyone, for sure.
too #punk to even make #sense
nah i understand there's that, and for the record i don't like anchovies or olives etc. Just isn't palatable for me. Plus I just don't like the premises.
do cats actually make those faces?
if you dont know about grumpy cat?
I've seen loads of pics but I'd never given it much thought till just now when I thought, 'hold on, how come I've never seen a cat make that face irl?'

Went to BrewDog in Shoreditch for a couple of very enjoyable beers on Sunday afternoon.
had this sourish raspberry beer thing. don't really do beer, but i quite liked it.
before going to village underground
we're like bros
We are such Bros.
about matt goss from bros now being the CEO of a major label and i've never questioned it
Sadly untrue. We did release this last year though:
It did... okay...
the BASSIST from bros (not pictured) was VP of International at EMI
Like all BrewDog stuff, it's a bit cringey, but I sort of laugh in spite of it. They're like the Top Gear of the brewing world. And I really like 5am Saint.
and he took me to this bar like saying it was "a real cool place". It was Brew Dog on Bethnal Green Road. I had a Weihenstephaner.
which DiSer will go tonight? i vote verbal
it's a bit wanky but it's pretty good. the scotch eggs are nice and it's got a pretty decent selection of board games.
For a place that seems like hipster hell the staff are friendly and helpful when it comes to sampling and selecting beers. Sheffield isn't short of great pubs to get fantastic ale, but some places could take a look at how brewdog do things. Anything that gets people away from lager and kopperberg and towards decent ale and cider is a good thing IMO.
it's really sweet, wtf? like a beer for 10 year olds
They have about four regulars and loads of others.
Don't think it's especially sweet, you must really like your bitterness #HOPWARRIOR
they won't shut up about 'craft beers' and have those pint cocktails now. and they do brewdog. spoons is basically brewdog
i had a pina colada they brought one into the kitchen it was nice cause of the coconut and pinapple
no i didn't pass their maths test
Want to go try them.
Especially at a two for a fiver.
but sweet action is well fit
They are shaking up a very fusty old institution and doing very well out of it.
The beers, the regular ones that aren't just for marketing purposes, are good, if increasingly unremarkable due to the other options available.
Is funny, in Bristol, where they opened a year or two ago, three other quality beer places (if not more) have opened up with about 1/8th of a mile. I semi-attribute this to them, as suddenly everyone had to up their game, and what we now have is loads of better drinking options.
In that part of town, Brewdog now looks like the big nasty corporate bar.
The art for them will be selling out at the exact moment before everyone notices they aren't cool anymore.
Is this worth any indie points?
in the brew dog place
was it one of those things that they look back on now and are like 'jesus how did i not see that, i'm cringing so hard right now'
I see BrewDog have opened a place that fills 'growlers'.
Surely it'd just go flat and horrible?
didn't read rest of post.
It doesn't mean minge anymore.
in Newcastle about five years ago. I think it's best to drink it day of, it will go weird if you leave it. I got one from a beer festival once, the container was like a cardboard juice container that you clipped shut, it was awful, spilled a load in the company car (and it was a pretty manky chocolate orange beer, not a good lingering smell).
...it's hardly a new idea. My Dad used to do it when we were kids, and I've done it at ale festivals and certain pubs before as well. It's just that that was usually a cloudy cider or a cask style ale - not one of those BrewDog style beers which are a bit gassy, served cold etc Just thought that they'd be better out of a 330-500 bottle?
I remember spilling some on my jeans and it f**king reeked once it dried
USE THE RUBBER BITS ON YOUR GUITAR
Thinking it was the Glastonbury Pauline Fowler Growler
....what do you think? Kasabian?
Not actually that bad a time if you pick really carefully and keep it a rare occurence, but really wouldn't hurt if they fucked off now?
You need a band who have a veneer of the alternative, and spend half their time saying just how experimental and adventurous they are, and railing against THE MAN, while being cynical posh boys producing mediocre products and pushing them to people desperate to seem different.
Which is unsual for BD, I'll admit.
I used to buy BrewDog beer as it used to be the only one of that style available in places like Sainsbury's, but they're ten-a-penny now.
BrewDog are incredibly easily avoided if you don't want to drink their beers. But I still personally think 5am Saint and Punk IPA are two of the finest beers around so I'll continue to drink them sporadically.
...but just got sick of Punk IPA as that and London Pride were the only nice beer options in my Sainsbury's Local. Can't drink either of them now.
Like when the cast of Made In Chelsea go for a night out in 'London's trendy Dalston'.
Hobgoblin is flavourless pish.
but is still 5.2% in bottle and cans.
I saw a stronger 6.7% goblin in the supermarket recently
Spoons do it. 2 cans for £5 (in Blackpool).
Sounds like Orwell's first draft of 1984 after he'd had too many pints of stout.
It looks nice and everything but I'd like to buy a beer without a side order of lifestyle guff with it. I think that's my main gripe with Brewdog. That and I don't particularly like the way their beers taste.
Just don't read it. Rip the label off if it bothers you so much.
I poured this can in to a glass, drank it, enjoyed it, went home.
"Stop shouting at the bottle Jamie, it can't hear you."
was hoping for a century, but that's pretty good. cheers team!
Didn't they do a sexist advert?
but I feel I should as everyone feels either strong love or hate for it.
Can't think of anything more boring than knowing about a drinks manufacturer. But I had one the other day, was nice
is not knowing about a drinks manufacturer"
Oscar (Chelsea & Brazil)
I might do that again at some point but on balance I think I'll probably do the majority of my future drinking in other places
*continues for 300 words*
It would be way worse to just say that then not explain why.
Many times at early club nights we'd meet there but we had to stop, as 3 pints of any beer around 5% in there would be enough to ruin the rest of my weekend. Never had headaches like them before or since.
in a brewdog pub.
"Brew Dogs"? Did anyone watch that? Looked hilarious (shit)?
Found the link quite amusing. It's the sort of thing that will get less funny the bigger they get- I wouldn't want to see a statement from British Gas to Ofgen in the same fashion.
They have decent enough pubs, I've always enjoyed myself in there. I don't know eno0ugh about beer to know whether their stuff is any good or not but it seems ok.
I think it can be a bit cringey how they try to be UBERCOOL MAVERICKS with their ditsy little names for their beers (TACTICAL NUCLEAR PENGUIN AHOY) but what is even more cringeworthy is how people with massive foreheads and wee willies fall over themselves to point out how terribly uncool they are.
Anyway, I like the idea of their new bottledog thing. No less gimmicky than any of the rest of their output, but I do actualy admire their chutzpah.
to be reviewed on a quarterly basis.
If no other reason than to imply that I have a tiny forehead and epic member.
Well I never...
on a jobshare.
I posted without rerading the threads
But it is almost as if I have a crystal ball(s)
With their bottles of Brewdog beer
All the staff will wear 'Cunt' T-shirts and all the beers will be called 'Cunt'.
I'd buy them out then have a #punklockin then burn them all down. BAM. Absolute raft of cunts gone in one fell swoop.
If you don't like a company, that's fine. If someone else doesn't like a drink you do, again that's fine. They're obviously quite good at what they do, though, because virtually everyone has a big opinion on them either way.
I think their beers taste pretty nice actually. I drink a lot of others but they're pretty reliable and i go for the really hoppy stuff, they sell a lot so theirs (bottled at least) are a bit cheaper than the alternatives so yeah, why not. Don't think you have to get involved with following their every move on Twitter or falling for their spiel otherwise.
Probably wouldn't go to one of their bars, simply because i doubt they'd tick the boxes for me price-wise and i expect it'd feel a bit Emporer's New Clothes, just like i wouldn't go somewhere and pay £15 for a burger, but a case of cold Dead Pony Club for <£20, yes please.
They're not doing indie properly.
^ boring cunt thing to say
