brewdog shoreditch

LONDON | BrewDog Shoreditch is one of the many BrewDog pubs that exists around the world. It’s hard to believe that only a few years ago there was only one BrewDog bar but no matter how much they keep expanding, the quality somehow manages to remain good. We’ve been to BrewDog

draft house chancery review
