London may have experienced a brewing revolution in recent times but its western neighbourhoods haven't seen anything like the explosion of microbreweries and bars that east, north and south have. The arrival of Brewdog in Shepherd’s Bush was kind of a big deal, and it remains one of the only places for miles around where you can sup on dozens of carefully crafted beers - from its owners, naturally, but also Denmark’s Mikkeller and very selected guests. For that reason it’s often packed and standing room only, with elbows required at the bar to hold your spot.

The design is Brewdog's signature shtick – the sign out front looks like cowboy builders haven’t finished the job off, while inside it’s all exposed brickwork, utilitarian seating, retro arcade games and punky posters. If that doesn’t exactly make you go weak at the knees, the beer selection should (especially if you tackle the double-figure ABV selection). The menu is displayed on a backlit bar, the beers listed like blockbuster movie screenings at a boutique cinema, with Brewdog staples joined by hard-to-find brews.

Its proximity to the Shepherd’s Bush Empire makes it a wise choice for pre-and-post gig refreshments, and decent burgers are on hand too. It might not look like they’ve finished off the exterior but, trust us, this is one slick operation.

Excellent selection of beers (although a little pricey). The interior is awesome and burger menu is great. I'd also recommend the beer tasting sessions they run - it was a great way to spend the evening, and you get a huge cheese and meat platter to accompany the drinks.


BrewDog’s West London outpost (obviously) has an amazing (albeit slightly pricier than normal) range of beers (great to see so many darker, stronger beers – other bars, please take note).

With a bare-brick interior, retro arcade machines and the cinema style beer board behind the bar, Brewdog was also one of the first to help spruce up this part of She Bu, along with the likes of Sindercombe Social, the Dorsett Hotel, Killer Tomato and Hoja. The diner style food offerings are also OK (nothing special but the Hail Setan veggie burger was nice, pepped up with a mac & cheese side). 


As with any Brewdog, there's tonnes of choice in delicious beer, and the atmosphere is great. 

Also as with any Brewdog, it gets very busy and loud! 

What makes this one stand out to me, is that it is just a stones throw away from the O2 in Shepherd's Bush, which makes it perfect for a before or after show drink (or both!) 

Fantastic place, great retro arcade games and pinball, eye-popping beer, lovely bar food, cheerful staff... What more do you want?!

Great selection of drinks. A bit too loud sometimes but the staff compensates! Cool place.


I don't want to rain on anybody's '90s nostalgia-soaked parade, but this place is just...silly. It's clearly catering to a hip thirtysomething crowd, but this comes at the expense of character. Well, if you like high-alcohol beers and a narrow demographic, you may appreciate Brewdog.


It's a great space, with lots of room and a long bar. Regular tap takeovers (where a brewery or beer blogger will have their favourite beers behind the bar), but the food is awful. Eat before you go!


One of my favourite Brewdogs - quite a bit of space to sit, but it does get busy very quicky! The food isn't great, but the drinks are, and the staff know what they're talking about as well!


Wowzers, Shepherds Bush is going up up up in the world, it has a Brewdog! Quite a nice, spacious big one at that. As expected, good ales and beers all round. Gets busy, but not crazzzyyy busy in the evenings. It was a fun day, and it has a couple of small tables out on the street if it's warm. Little bit soulless, I thought though. Maybe the size of it just makes it feel a little vacuous.
