Fast-growing brewer opens Cambridge bar
After years of rumours and dashed hopes for the beer drinkers of Cambridge, popular Scottish brewery BrewDog finally opened the doors to its huge new city centre bar on 30 August. Located at the multistorey Bene’t Street building previously home to steakhouse CAU, BrewDog Cambridge is serving up the excellent beers these Aberdeen-based craft brewers are known and loved for around the world, including Punk IPA, Dead Pony Club and Clockwork Tangerine, as well as loads of specials from the taps and some bites to eat.
There will be a whopping 25 draft beers pouring at any given time, as well as a range of beers to takeaway – perfect if you want to pick up a tinny or two to drink by the river. BrewDog Cambridge will also feature BrewDog OverWorks sour and wild range, plus spirits from the BrewDog Distilling Co.
Food-wise, there’s burgers, salads and buffalo wings, including the popular “Jackpot” burger and the vegan-friendly BBQ Hail Seitan burger. They’ll also be firing up the hobs for brunch, offering fried chicken and waffles, pickle-spiced Bloody Marys and more (served from 10am).
This latest opening comes as part of a brisk expansion for BrewDog, which has seen the company open up venues everywhere from Oxford to Ohio. In fact, BrewDog Cambridge is the company’s 94th bar since it began brewing in 2007, with the brand remaining a passionate beacon for independence and quality in the beer world. “Cambridge is a city like few others and we can’t wait to open up there and give the people what they want – great beer, great food and a place to call their second home”, says James Watt, ‘Captain’ of BrewDog. “We have wanted to open a BrewDog Bar in Cambridge for some time, and are proud that we can finally do so. The fact that we are edging ever closer to 100 bars is unreal, given what we started with, and only nine years on from opening our first bar in Aberdeen.”
