Scottish brewer and operator BrewDog has announced it is looking to open a ‘craft beer hotel’ in London.

This follows the company opening up a DogHouse in Columbus, Ohio, US, where guests can drink beer and have fridges stocked with brews in the shower.

BrewDog’s stated: “Last summer we unveiled the world’s first craft beer hotel in Columbus, Ohio. Adjacent to our brewery, it has been fully booked pretty much ever since.

“Our beer-loving guests have been raving about the draught beer in every room, shower beer fridges and craft beer museum – with all of it overlooking the foeders (large barrels) of our US sour beer facility.”

Hoppiest place on earth

It said: “It is the hoppiest place on earth. At least, it is for now. Because we are looking to do it all again, much closer to home. We are bringing you the DogHouse London.

“The search is on for a location that we can convert into the UK’s first craft beer hotel in the centre of the biggest beer city this country has.

“We are actively hunting for an epic site at the moment. Once we have opened up, you guys will be able to stay for the ultimate pit stop on a visit to the capital and its amazing craft beer scene – but it will be packed with so many cool beer-related features, you will never want to leave.”

The website also outlined other opportunities guests to the hotel could experience if they stayed overnight.

Craft beer geeks

It added: “The DogHouse London will be nothing short of the ultimate hotel for craft beer geeks. As such, it will have its own craft beer museum like our hotel in Columbus where you will be able to check out the exhibits before you check out.

“Beer knowledge is power. Suitably armed, you can then head to some (or all) of our 12 London BrewDog bars and continue your beery vacation.

“Like its Columbus counterpart, we will ensure all rooms in the DogHouse London will have fresh craft beer you can pour for yourself in each room and our now iconic shower beer fridges will also feature.

“Hell, we may even fit a Punk IPA jacuzzi as well. Nothing is off limits at the moment, once we find a location we will make our London hotel every bit as amazing as the one on the other side of the Atlantic.

“[If you are an] Equity Punk, you’ll of course score a discount on bookings and if any of you have an idea of potential locations for our craft beer hotel then let us know (note, ‘at the end of my road doesn’t’ count). Watch this space – London is going to get a new craft beer destination very soon.”
