Welcome to the (relatively) New BrewDog Gatwick Airport

BrewDog Gatwick Airport

Hot Wings & Cold Beer (what’s not to love?)

BrewDog Gatwick Airport Hot Wings and Cold Beer

As I approached BrewDog’s new outpost at Gatwick Airport’s North Terminal, my eyes were immediately drawn to a tantalizing sign at the entrance: “Hot Wings & Cold Beer.” This simple yet effective message perfectly encapsulates what BrewDog does best.

The promise of this classic combo lured me in, and I’m glad it did. The hot wings lived up to their billing – crispy, generously sauced, and with just the right amount of heat to wake up my taste buds without overwhelming them. The blue cheese dip on the side provided a cool counterpoint to the spice.

As for the cold beer, BrewDog’s selection didn’t disappoint. From their flagship Punk IPA to seasonal specialties, each brew was served at the perfect temperature to complement the wings and quench my thirst. The staff even let me sample a few and boy are there some extremes, thanks team for going the extra mile!

PS here is a tip I got from the team, go hang out side Krispy Kreme before closing (9pm) and you might get some freebies!

BrewDog Gatwick Airport Menu

BrewDog Gatwick Airport Food Menu

During my visit to BrewDog Gatwick Airport, I decided to try their Hot Wings from the “World Famous Wings” section. I opted for the Buffalo sauce, which gave them a nice kick (but added more Frank’s Hot Sauce (see more on that below). To wash it down, I chose Elvis Juice from their beer menu. It’s a 6.5% ABV brew listed under the Pale Ale & IPA section.

I enjoyed the Elvis Juice for its grapefruit-infused IPA flavor profile, and I found it paired really well with the spiciness of the wings. The citrusy notes of the beer provided a refreshing contrast to the heat of the Buffalo sauce. It was a great combination that hit the spot before my flight.
