We really like the beers but we were disappointed with the Halloumi pizza which was light on the Halloumi and VERY dry. The female server was grumpy too and that’s not cool.

Spent a few days in Aberdeen, and kept coming back to this place! An absolute excellent selection of good beers. The people working here are nice too, as well as the atmosphere. Not too crowded, but still lively :-)

Been here a handful of times and always hand a nice and relaxed evening with great craft beer! The staff are very friendly especially Beth who was extremely helpful when I was indecisive about my beer choice, great place!

Worth walking an extra 5 minutes from the Castlegate brewdog to Gallowgate - top service and pizza was fab. Also price of a large glass of wine much more reasonable £5 instead of the £8.99 charged at Castlegate

We didn’t eat one. Extract fans clearly not working. Bad burnt smell overwhelming. It hits you when you walk in the door and follows you out. Ugh!

Went here at the weekend, good time for casual afternoon drinks. We sat and played games althiugh had to ask staff as some were kept behind the bar? Didn't order food as it is quite pricey but had a good time.

Good 🍺. Good burger. Bare bones ambiance. No parking but guess locals know that. Will try the only US location in Columbus with younger son when we visit.

Whilst I was pleased to find vegan pizza on their menu (and the reason why we went) it really was a disappointment. The base was incredibly thin and the crust was very dry, burnt and brittle. Minimal topping of about one sliced mushroom and strips...More

All sell roughly the same beer generally. Castlegate and Union have a bigger food choice. We preferred the one at Gallowgate for drinks, a bit quieter than Castlegte. Not been to Union as it’s just opened.
