BrewDog – Craft Beer Part II

Brewdog Manchester

The lads from Aberdeenshire are now the fastest-growing UK bar or restaurant owners.

Brewing ‘by the misfits, for the misfits’ is Brewdog’s take on the Gettysburg Address, and it comes after the release of their new spirit distilled from their very own IPA.

“WattDickie” is brewed at a tongue tingling 35% alcohol by volume, but still remains gentler than some of their other releases. This new innovation is due to be rolled out in bars nationwide – so good news for Camden and Shoreditch.

Founded in 2007, BrewDog has steadily grown with consistently innovative releases, challenging drinkers to expect more from their amber coloured tipple. The company’s manifesto is emblazoned on the side of their flagship “Punk IPA,” delivering a malt-infused missive against bland, flavourless beers which dominate the market. The two Scots’ tongues are sharp, but rest assured, they are lodged firmly in their ale-coated cheeks.

Their bars offer consumers an array of craft beers from around the world, and are an ideal opportunity to explore the company’s fine range of ales and spirits. BrewDog, in Camden, is five minutes from the station in Bayham Street.

My advice would be to start with the widely available ‘Punk IPA,’ with its excellent display of hops and subtle array of bitter and sour notes. And don’t be afraid to ask the person behind the bar for a recommendation – they are passionate about the brand and as knowledgeable as anyone.
