Craft beer maker BrewDog to open hotel at Scotland brewery

DoghouseBrewDog has confirmed plans are in the pipeline to open a beer-themed boutique hotel at the company’s brewery in Northern Scotland. The craft brewer says the hotel premises will adjoin the main brewery at Ellon in Aberdeenshire and will offer nirvana-like experiences for serious beer fans.

Even though the hotel will not welcome its first guests until early next year, it has already been christened the DogHouse. The DogHouse will incorporate 26 brewery themed rooms with bonus features set to include draught beer taps, shower beer fridges and windows with commanding views over the brewery.

James Watt is co-founder of BrewDog and said in a statement the DogHouse was the brewer’s bequest to beer lovers and would be the perfect pilgrimage destination for them. He carried on by saying a beer hotel had always been a BrewDog dream and now it would finally come to fruition.

The DogHouse will be built on a three-acre plot of land in Ellon and at the same time the brewery premises is expanded to increase beer production capacity and canning capabilities. The finances needed to build the DogHouse and expand the brewery were provided by crowdfunding in the form of Equity for Punks.

In its news bulletin relating to the DogHouse, BrewDog notes Equity for Punks contributors will be given priority when making room reservations. BrewDog previously announced a beer hotel at its US outlet in Colombus, Ohio but has not so far confirmed when this facility will open.
