Scottish brewers bringing a unique blend of Belgian beers and Flemish food to a big city bier halle setting

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

Blending Flemish traditions with Scottish brewing, six°north’s arrival in town from Aberdeenshire is paradise for beer lovers, with 30 glistening taps showcasing their stable plus fridges filled with unusual offerings from Belgium. Start with a refreshing Hopocrisy blonde or Wanderlust, cloudier with subtle orange notes, or tackle some Lambic beers. All this takes place, fittingly, in a continental bier halle setting replete with benches and tiled walls – relaxed and noisily sociable as trays of schooners sploshing golden delights whoosh around. The eye-catching Flemish cuisine includes small plates so a tour des Belges is ideal. There’s beef stew with deep caramelized overtones so brooding Jacques Brel would be proud, and Toulouse sausage bursting with peppery juice and rustic flavour. Most memorable is the halibut parcel with Liege salad, a wonderful pairing of mild, delicate fish and the salty crunch of bacon cubes. Brussels has arrived in Partick and the Belgians just played their joker.
