The rumours are true… if you go down a certain staircase on Bath Street, you will find pie paradise.
Busy in the back kitchen, Pie Masters are making, shaping and baking an amazing array of savoury treats.
And around the front, you will find a sleek and spacious basement bar serving craft ales to match the epic pastries.
If all this sounds wonderful to you (and frankly, why wouldn’t it?) then you know what to do – make haste and snatch up today’s Big Deal for a £20 voucher spend at Pie & Brew.
And if you are struggling to find a truly brilliant Secret Santa gift for Si the IT guy, then your search ends here…
Artisan pie hangout
Tucked away beneath Abode on Bath Street, Pie & Brew is a basement bar and restaurant serving the winning combination of speciality pies with craft ales.
All of the pastry treats are handmade by Pie Masters on the premises and the beer selection changes weekly.
Regular live music, pub quizzes and tasting sessions make it a lively hangout.
£20 voucher gift
Today’s Big Deal is £10 for a £20 voucher spend on both food and drink, which can be used by up to two people dining together.
It’s valid Tuesday to Saturday with lunch and evening options, right up until the end of March.
You can also buy multiples, should you fancy giving a few folk a little slice of pie heaven this Christmas.
Or you could of course just stow it away for yourself as a post-festive treat.
Handmade pies and craft beers
Golden pastry… mouthwatering fillings… hearty sides… it’s all too much!
At Pie & Brew, you can tuck into a range of crusted wonders. Although menus can change, expect choices like braised ale & beef, smoked haddock & spinach and pulled pork, cider & apple.
Vegetarians options could include baked mac & cheese crumble and vegetarian haggis & beetroot.
You can also add a choice of toppings to your pie, such as pork crackling, crispy shallots and cheese. Mash, sweet potato fries and spicy beans are just some of the awesome sides on offer.
Continuing with the theme, all puddings are pie-based too and include banoffee, lemon meringue and the indulgent sounding Tunnock’s Mud. Oh my.
If pies aren’t your thing, then try the fish supper or classic Angus burger with onion rings, bacon and cheese.
Heart of the city centre
Pie & Brew is handy for Cineworld, the Buchanan Galleries and Sauchiehall Street.
Glasgow Central and Queen Street stations are both a ten-minute walk away, plus Buchanan Street underground is also close by.
Drivers can find pay parking at the NCP on Mitchell Street.
Happy pie lovers
Previous visitors to Pie & Brew have left rave reviews on TripAdvisor. We’ve edited these recent ones for shortness:
‘One of my faves in Glasgow. The pies are really good — all home made, and served with their own gravy. And a great selection of beer and ale. Strongly recommend.’
‘Stumbled on this place while visiting Glasgow. Heard the live music while walking down the street and decided to try it out. Pretty chill vibe, good live music, decent beer and cocktails (if you dare) and friendly service.’
‘Loved it, good food, good atmosphere & great beer. Popped in for a bite with a mate… staff all pretty chilled out and worked around us. Loved the handmade pies and the gravy that came alongside. Add in a few pints (solid range), live music that was chilled and at the perfect noise level… and you have a nice, relaxed night out. Definitely will be back.’
Fab Secret Santa or stocking filler
If you are looking for a Secret Santa gift that someone will genuinely love (as opposed to guiltily donating to Oxfam in February), then this £20 voucher for Pie & Brew should hit the spot.
The lucky gift receiver can use it for both food and drink, giving them the chance to find that ultimate pie and craft beer pairing.
Plus they can take a friend along with them to join in the pastry-based hijinks.
