the guys at brewdog know what they’re doing – their strong following of beer lovers keeps them popping up in cities across the uk, sharing their love of hops through beer schools and serving up ridiculous percentage brews.
i’m learning the ways of the beer drinker but, sadly, i am not there just yet.
however, there is one thing i do know about, and that’s bbq – luckily, that’s a love brewdog also shares.
visiting on a thursday evening with a brewdog virgin, we poured over the food and drinks menu, but i quickly knew what i wanted; having been here with a yelp contingent, i had to go back for more mac&cheese, and opted for the brisket as my main meat.
i apologise for yet another poorly lit photo (i have a bad phone camera!) but just take a look at that smoke ring. wow.
the meat itself was tender and packed with flavour, if a bit dry, especially with the hunk of brown bread served alongside. the mac&cheese, however, took care of this and added the much needed moisture.
my companion went for the pulled pork roll with a side of sweet potato fries, which were heavenly. the meat was much easier to eat with a large helping of bbq sauce on top, something my dish could have done with.
on the whole, a great meal in super relaxed surroundings. and a smoke ring that will stick in my memory.
