Scottish craft brewer and pub operator BrewDog has opened new bars in Edinburgh Airport and Perth city-centre.

The openings bring the brewery’s portfolio to 11 in Scotland, 39 in the UK, and 78 worldwide.

BrewDog Edinburgh Airport launched today, (Thursday 22 November) at the east end of the terminal, and BrewDog Perth opens tomorrow (Friday 23 November).

BrewDog​ co-founder James Watt called the Edinburgh airport addition “a BrewDog bar like no other”.

He continued: “Not only can we introduce more beer drinkers to the power of craft beer than ever before, but we can turn the traditional airport beer experience, into a vibrant hub of excitement and craft beer passion."

Jetsetters taking EasyJet, TUI and FlyBe flights from the city airport can also buy the brewers’ products on-board.

BrewDog Perth came about following calls from craft beer fans in the area, Watt said.

Scottish roots

We’re incredibly proud of our Scottish roots and will jump at any opportunity to provide more fantastic, flavourful craft beers for our fellow Scots,” he said.

“Perth’s craft beer community has been lobbying for a BrewDog bar for years and we’re so excited to have finally been able to build a bar they can call their own.”

The city-centre bar is the operator’s smallest site, with a capacity of 43.

Both bars will offer 14 taps of craft beer and a food menu - though just the operator’s breakfast, salad and hot sandwich menus will be available at Edinburgh Airport​.

Beer lovers have also been offered the opportunity to take a flight with BrewDog Airlines​ next year, with a cross-Atlantic beer-tasting experience.

The company's Punk IPA was named as the top-selling craft beer​ in The Morning Advertiser’s​ list of the best-selling drinks for the pub trade.
