Munro's, Glasgow

 Last week, despite the freezing weather, my friend Kate and I ventured out to the launch night of Munro's in Glasgow's Westend. 

Newly opened Munro's markets itself as a 'craft beer and cask ale' pub which 'aims to bring an interesting range of quality craft and cask ales as well as as some of the best beers from around Scotland and the world'. 

That works for me. 

I like beer.

 However Kate is more of a prosecco girl and luckily there was loads of that on tap too.

The place was buzzing with a good atmosphere. The decor is pub-like whilst still maintaining a trendy vibe to it. The leather armchairs, rugs and purposefully tilted free standing lampshade all contributed to the homely feel of the place. 

That's the problem with homely though. 

You don't want to go home.

We were treated to a few samplers from their beer bites menu including stuffed jalepeno's, chilli and parmesan fries and some seriously good thin crust pizza. Much to our dismay, we missed out on the hotdogs that were doing the rounds but damn they looked fine.

Not forgetting the reason for being there, I got tucked into a few of the beers. I started with a sort of fruit based beer (I have no idea what it was called) which was alright but a bit dark for me. I swiftly moved onto an Arran pale ale before finishing with a pint of WEST St Mungo's. 

Oh the bloating. 

But it was worth it.

While Kate mainly stuck to wine, she had a thoroughly good  night as well and I reckon this will probably be the perfect place for our next meet up. 

Damn, I don't get to see that face enough.

You can check out Munro's website here but if I were you I would just cut out the middle man and get yourself down there for a pint.
