Visited here a few times as it does have a nice setting. However, every time the service has been extremely slow and not once with any kind of happiness or personality. Ordering anything other than those drinks on tap seems an enormous task to the...More

I've been to Bottlecap with friends maybe half a dozen times since it opened in 2014 and have to say I have left disappointed on each and every occasion. The price of the drinks is a particular issue but I appreciate that there is a...More

I had hoped to review the new refurbished Bottlecap Brewery but despite the hand modified time (in pencil) saying it would open at 7 last night we waited outside in the rain watching the uber hipster barmeister in flat cap & braces studiously ignore us....More

Craft beer bars! I love them! Aberdeen has 4 excellent craft beer bars, they are all well funded, well furbished, well stocked and all have their own niche and own it! 6 Degrees North - "The Belgian Brewers of Scotland" who opened their own bar...More

First of all not the most welcoming venue but added to that the majority of the staff seem to be students with no knowledge of craft beer or customer service so I ask "why hire them?" I'm assuming the chap I spoke to Gordon seemed...More

Compared to the recent string of craft and international based beer bars in Aberdeen, Bottlecap is terrible. The beers on offer are never great and I'm yet to find one of the breweries own that doesn't taste like dish water. The bar also serves cocktails...More
