BrewDog is one of the most successful Scottish craft beer producers. Their products are widely available, so during your travels in Scotland make sure to try some. This is a review of three of their beers that provide delicious flavour combinations.
First off, a bit about BrewDog. They are based in Ellon, Aberdeenshire. The brewery began with 2 staff in 2007 and by 2015 it had 540 staff and 44 bars in several countries. They have a huge range of beers with bold bottle labels and trendy branding. Their range is one of the easiest to get a hold of in supermarkets and pubs across the UK, so you should find it quite easy to track down.
This is easy to drink and refreshing. It is well-balanced with no strong flavours. There is a slight bitterness and citrus taste. This is a craft beer with mass appeal and a good choice if you want to sink a few of beers with your mates.
This has a grapefruit infusion and the grapefruit taste is simply perfect. It turns out that this fruit is an ideal match to beer. You get a zesty, bitter taste that has a low level of sweetness. The balance between fruit and beer taste is perfection. It is a drink that keeps you coming back for more sips because it is just so pleasurable. It also smells amazing, like walking into a fruit shop.
My first taste of this made me go "wow! This is lovely." It is fruity, zingy and hoppy. It is a fabulous combination o flavours and very drinkable. It is a beer that you want to keep on drinking for the taste and not just something you pick up to get drunk. On the bottle label it is described as 'berry bouncing off marmalade clashing with caramel buzzing off spice sizzling with toast laced with lychees and colliding with biscuit.' This is the best description of a beer I think I have ever read and pretty much sums up the amazing flavour combinations in this drink. Of the three beers this is my favourite and if you only get a chance to try one, make it 5AM Saint.
BrewDog also produce a non-alcoholic beer. Read a review of this on my blog
A non-alcoholic beer that actually tastes good? BrewDog, one of Scotland's most successful craft beer producers, have managed to make a low alcohol beer that tastes as good as the real thing. I really enjoyed the bitter and fruity tastes of Nanny State.
It is 0.5% alcohol, so not completely clean, but it is called a low alcohol beer on the label description. It smells fruity and the main taste is a slight bitterness followed by a fruity aftertaste. I enjoyed the flavour and thought it as good as a real beer. This is a truly tasty alternative and destroys the stereotype of low alcoholic beer being boring and disgusting.

Even if you would normally never touch low alcohol beer this is an exception because it tastes so good. Give it a try.
