Located at the site of BrewDog's US brewery in Columbus, Ohio, the DogHouse offers guests the unique oppportunity to spend a night inside a brewery.
The 32-room DogHouse will feature beer taps in each room and a built-in shower beer fridge amongst many other features that make for the ultimate immersive beer utopia.
The hotel also boasts communal areas for guests to relax in, including the hotel media room where beer fans can watch the Scottish brewer’s TV show, Brew Dogs, and enjoy a game of ping (or beer) pong, or savor the sites of the brewery from the extensive front patio.
In addition to the ultimate craft beer escape, BrewDog USA has also unveiled its on-site, interactive beer museum.
This 6,000 square foot space provides a journey through the brewing process, the history of craft beer, and a hands-on experience of ‘the fundamental four’ ingredients that contribute to the creation of a craft beer.
BrewDog first announced plans for the DogHouse in March 2017, with a crowdfunding campaign aimed at raising $75,000 over 30 days for its construction.
“For many beer fans, the idea of a beer hotel was just a pipe-dream. A beer utopia that was never thought possible. Until now. Thanks to the backing of our global community of beer evangelists, we’ve been hard at work to make that dream a reality"
The campaign launched to huge success, raising $160k in under a week from over 1,000 backers; an impressive $2,083 per hour.
As a result of the unprecedented demand, BrewDog introduced a stretch goal of $200k, and went on to secure over $300k for the hotel, four times the original goal.
Those who backed the campaign have had first access to room reservations, and more than 500 nights have already been pre-booked by the craft beer community.
Construction is currently underway for BrewDog’s second DogHouse hotel at the brewery’s headquarters in Ellon, Scotland.
Scheduled to welcome guests in 2019, the hotel will be built on a 3.25-acre site adjacent to BrewDog’s current 1 million hl brewery.
As well as a hotel construction, the site will see the expansion of BrewDog’s brewery to include a 300 hl brewhouse and a canning and packaging hall.
“For many beer fans, the idea of a beer hotel was just a pipe-dream," comments BrewDog co-founder, James Watt. "A beer utopia that was never thought possible. Until now. Thanks to the backing of our global community of beer evangelists, we’ve been hard at work to make that dream a reality.
From welcome pints of Punk IPA and malt massages to brewery views and shower beers, this will be the world’s first and only fully-immersive craft beer experience from check in to check out. The DogHouse is our gift to the passionate and dedicated army of beer fans that have supported us every step of the way. We are nothing without our community and this hotel celebrates that.”
