    Brewdog tour 6th Jun 18 at 10:53 PM
    Hi, has anyone here done the Brewdog tour.?

    Its my husbands birthday soon and i thought he might enjoy it but i was just wondering if its worth it.

    They have a brewery in Ellon Aberdeenshire and there are some cheap airbnb places to stay.
    I dont know how to do links but on airbnb if you put Ellon in the search box a lovely flat comes up,the main picture is a double bed with a red throw and heart get a lounge (sofa bed),kitchen,bedroom and bathroom for 45 and it sleeps 4.I dont know what Ellon is like but its close to beaches,and 90 for two nights for 4 people seems cheap.

    If you have been to visit,whats it like.They have a bar called The dog tap which has good reviews......very tempted.

    Ellon's a nice little town. Lovely riverside walk and some nice caf!s. The hotel does a good carvery on a Sunday. You are close to some very good beaches and the little fishing villages of Gardenstown and Pennan are worth a visit. The Happy Plant Garden Centre is about 10 miles north of Ellon in Mintlaw and they do fantastic food and cakes.

    Never done the tour myself but friends and family rate it.

    I booked the tour and the dog tap was fab.
    We stayed in an Airbnb flat,it was clean and very comfy accommodation .Lots of places to visit.A very cheap getaway.
    Brewdog is child friendly aswell.

    Its pretty-much a pleasant commuter/family town that has older roots as a country hub.

    Nice enough and well-placed for access to the City/Airport and some of the nicest parts of costal/agricultural Aberdeenshire. It has all a visitor needs for a base. My Gran's brother lived for many years on the Ythanbank road.

    Been a while since I last ate or drank there but I second Cazzie above about the hotel and other places to go.

    Ellon is a nice little town and close to a lot of nice beaches (Newburgh in particular as it has a seal colony), but it's only a 30 minute drive from Aberdeen city centre, so don't feel like you have to limit yourself to staying there.
    In terms of the Brewdog tour, its might to be a good tour and has an onsite bar. Just don't get suckered into buying "shares" in Brewdog as you can't actually buy shares, its effectively just an expensive membership club.
