Scottish craft beer brewer and bar operator BrewDog is to reopen its Islington venue with homebrewing equipment on site to allow customers to brew their own beer.

BrewDog Angel will open its doors on Friday 1 June, and will contain four 20l homebrew kits which customers can use while drinking a range of beers from the bar’s 14 taps.

The bar will also be offering a full BrewDog pizza menu and coffee from Dear Green.

Details about how booking in for a brewday are yet to be revealed, but the first 50 people through the doors on opening day next Friday will be entered into a raffle to win brewdays, a trip to BrewDog brewery’s in Ellon and a grand prize of free beer for a year!

Brewpub now open

The Angel bar is located at 21-31 Essex Road, Islington, the site of former BrewDog bar and restaurant Punk Kitchen.

Earlier this month, BrewDog opened the doors to its first brewpub in Tower Hill. The 8,500sq ft venue has capacity for more than 500 drinkers.

The bar features 25 beers on tap, three deli fridges for takeaway beers, an automated growler filling system, an arcade games area with three shuffleboards and an extensive outdoor seating area.

Exclusive beers brewed in the 10hl brewing kit on site will permanently be on offer at the bar and will also be distributed across BrewDog’s eight-strong network of bars in London.

Australia under construction

The opening of the Tower Hill site was marked​ by the making of a beer with ingredients selected by dogs, which were invited to choose from three options of hops, malts and a special twist.

The options approached most by the dogs were selected for the final brew.

BrewDog is currently also constructing a third brewing site in Brisbane, Queensland, in eastern Australia, to add to its current US brewing facility in Columbus, Ohio, and its HQ in Ellon, in the north-east of Scotland.
