BrewDog Open The World’s First Brewery Hotel in Columbus, Ohio
Last year, Scottish brewing kings BrewDog opened the doors to their very first brewery in the United States in Columbus, Ohio. At the same time, they also announced plans for the world’s first hotel to offer guests a night’s stay in a brewery. Well, named the DogHouse, said hotel has just opened and rooms come complete with a beer fridge in the shower!
The 32-room DogHouse has just opened in Columbus, Ohio. The world’s first brewery-located hotel offers guests the chance to watch brewers at work from rooms overlooking the state-of-the-art brewing facility. As well as beer taps in each room, showers also feature beer fridges so a Punk IPA is never out of reach.
In addition to the built-in beer fridges, the rooms will also boast a personal keg bar that will be activated as soon as guests purchase a growler of their favourite BrewDog brew at any time during their stay. The front desk has also been replaced with a lobby bartender who will check guests-in while they enjoy a complimentary beer.
Around the DogHouse, there’s also common 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 savour the sites of the brewery from the extensive front patio.
BrewDog first announced plans for the DogHouse in March 2017 and quickly launched a crowdfunding campaign. They 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.
In addition to the new craft beer hotel, BrewDog has also unveiled its on-site, interactive beer museum. The 6,000 sq ft space provides a journey through the brewing process, delving into the history of craft beer and offering guests a hands-on experience of ‘the fundamental four’ ingredients that contribute to the creation of a craft beer.
The DogHouse hotel is available to book now over at the BrewDog Website, with prices starting at around £125 ($162) a night. Construction is also currently underway for a second DogHouse hotel at the brewery’s headquarters in Ellon, Scotland, with opening scheduled for 2019.
