The Brewdog AF Beer Bar | It stands for ‘alcohol free’
Brewdog have just opened a new bar.
But the only thing getting drunk… will be the beer.
Because this is – according to Brewdog – the world’s first alcohol-free beer bar. And Brewdog happen to make some genuinely great alcohol-free beers. Yes, plural. They make many different styles, in many different flavour profiles, and they’ve got 15 taps-worth of them here.
You’ll find it just off the Old Street roundabout, installed on the ground floor of the all-new sleek Bower Development. It’s dressed up in the classic Brewdog look: stark industrial minimalism softened with comfy seating and festoon lights. And it’s quite ambitiously big, too.
As for the beers? Well, they’ve split those 15 taps roughly down the middle to make space for both their own brews, and some rotating guest pours as well. The former include the likes of their stalwart Nanny State pale ale (hoppy, plummy flavours with a tropical aroma); their Wake Up Call coffee stout (smooth, velvety, chocolate notes); and their Faux Fox Raspberry sour-style. The guests kicking off this endeavour currently star a lineup including Hawkes Designated Cider, an unfiltered lager, and a punchy Dropkick IPA.
Helping soak everything up, they’ve also got a menu of burgers, wings, and slightly healthier brunches, annnd they’ve lined up a few events too, including Hip Hop Karaoke and Booze-Free Bingo.
And finally, just to make dry January slightly wetter? They’re offering free refills on any of their alcohol free beers for the month.
So the month won’t be completely pintless.
NOTE: The Brewdog AF Beer Bar is open seven days a week. You can find out more, and see the current lineup of taps at their website right HERE.
