Brewdog is a well-established Scottish craft beer brewer with a chain of pubs across the UK and a rapidly-expanding number of locations across the globe, taking in cities such as Sao Paulo, Reykjavik, Budapest, Barcelona, along with a brewery in Columbus, Ohio.
We reported before on their tendency to include bar games in their locations and how that often includes pinball.
One of their more recent openings in in Tower Hill, London, close to the famous Tower of London and the Crown Jewels, so we paid them a visit to check out the facilities.
Brewdog Tower Hill is in the shadow of the skyscraper known locally as the ‘Walkie-Talkie’

The bar at Brewdog Tower Hill
The bar was busy when we got there around 6:30pm on a Wednesday. Being in the heart of London means there are plenty of office workers in the surrounding buildings looking for a post-work drink and a bite to eat. Despite the number of customers, it didn’t take long to get served at the bar.
They serve 33 beers on tap – mostly their own brands but also a decent mix of other craft brewers’ products.
The beer list is also available online
They also brew a couple of small batch beers on the premises, so we sampled their Tower Hill London Pale – purely for research purposes, of course.
They also brew their own beer here
If you particularly enjoy any of the beers you can usually find them in cans in the three fridges next to the bar, or you can bring or buy a growler to fill straight from the tap.
Along with these fridges they also have beer vending machines
The far end of the bar is the games area and although there is some pinball, the majority of the space is taken up by three puck shuffleboard tables.

When we first arrived the shuffleboard tables were not getting much action, but before long all three were occupied with groups and couples enjoying the game.

Beyond the shuffleboards are two video games and one
