Another member of the BrewDog family, squatting on Clerkenwell Road since 2015. The reason to come here is the beer. Of course. BrewDog is a brewery up in Scotland known for its devil-may-care attitude to brewing.
The available beers — from BrewDog and guest brewers — change regularly, to the extent that several mouthwatering brews on the website on a Monday had already disappeared by the time of our Wednesday visit. That's the tyranny of choice, for you. And at 28 beer lines, it's a big choice.
If you visited the previous bar on this site, The Fourteenth Colonie — and the fact few did is a hint of why it is no more — you'll be familiar with the decor. BrewDog has kept the Brooklyn vibe with its booths and tall tables, adding an enormous neon "CRAFT BEER SPOKEN HERE" sign. Subtle. Meet a group of mates and have fun.
