Fancy staying in a beer hotel? The UK is welcoming its very first Doghouse Hotel, created by Scotland brewers BrewDog Brewery.
This hotel is a beer-lovers dream. Think in-room beer taps, minibars filled with BrewDog favourites and fully-stocked fridges in the shower. Because, you know, who can say no to a shower beer?
Brewdog boss James Watt announced the move on Twitter earlier this week, saying the hotel would open in late 2021.
No stranger to beer
BrewDog has tried and tasted beer hotel success before. The company already owns The Kennels, a mini-hotel dedicated to beer in Aberdeen, Scotland. It also operates a beer hotel in Ohio, USA.
This Scotland hotel won’t be the last either. BrewDog plans to launch a carbon-negative beer hotel in Manchester in late 2021. It will feature 18 sustainable hotel rooms and a rooftop bar with an urban forest.
Much like the Edinburgh launch, it will feature craft beer taps and shower fridges in all rooms.
What can I find in a beer hotel?
Once opened, guests will be able to find the beer-themed hotel on Market Street in Edinburgh.
The company is renovating a former Victorian schoolhouse with space for 21 apartment-style hotel rooms and a two-storey commercial space that can house a bar, restaurant and outdoor terrace.
Expect industrial piping, metal and leather and a warm beer smell.
If it’s to live up to its American counterpart, the hotel could even feature an interactive beer museum and library.
More is to be announced in the coming months.
The BrewDog Brewery brand
James Watt and his friend Martin founded Brewdog in 2007. It is now the UK’s leading craft beer brewer.
The company has expanded its empire to the US and Australia in recent years. You can find a Brewdog brewery in Brisbane.
