In-room Punk IPA taps? BrewDog opens unique beer hotel in Scotland

“This is a beer Nirvana,” says the craft beer manufacturer’s co-founder

Beer and… more beer. Scottish craft lager manufacturer BrewDog will soon provide a new supply of the wonderful libation as they plan to open world’s unique craft beer hotel.

The DogHouse, as the hotel in Aberdeen, Scotland, will call itself, will feature 26 rooms containing taps with samples like the famous Punk IPA, a fridge with lagers built into the shower for those who become thirsty while washing themselves, while the rooms will overlook the company’s headquarters and the brewery itself.

“The DogHouse is our gift to passionate craft beer fans making the pilgrimage to our brewery in Aberdeenshire. The idea of opening such hotel has always been high on our agenda, and now we are finally able to realise that dream, right here at our HQ,” says a BrewDog co-founder, James Watt, in a press release.

“This will be the ultimate destination for craft beer fans seeking hops with their holidays. This is a beer Nirvana.”

BrewDog introduced the DogHouse concept last year with the announcement of a hotel in Columbus Ohio at the site of its American brewery, and a recent property acquisition in Ellon has led to this further announcement of a hotel in the brewery’s homeland, Scotland.

The prospective site in the mid-west state is described as the “world’s first crowdfunded craft beer hotel attached to a brand new BrewDog facility”.

The whole DogHouse project will be largely funded by the brewery’s Equity for Punks crowdfunding campaign. Even though the organisers didn’t meet their original goal of collecting $35 million, they still managed to receive $26 million from enthusiastic supporters that will help launch the hotel.

Investors will receive priority booking at the Aberdeenshire property as a reward.

The BrewDog hotel is scheduled to welcome guests in the first half of 2019.
