Hoppy Days Are Here Again
Scotland’s Best Brewery Is Opening a Beer Hotel… in Ohio
Leading Scottish craft brewery BrewDog landed stateside mere weeks ago with DogTap Columbus, the company’s largest brewpub to date, and it isn’t wasting any time plotting its expansion. The brewery’s next venture will be an over-the-top, beer-centric hotel and sour beer brewing facility, also based in Columbus, Ohio. Among the hotel’s amenities will be spa treatments with bespoke hop oils, an IPA-filled jacuzzi and en-suite shower beer fridges. The brewery has launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund the project, offering rewards like a free stay with a $150 investment (as well as plenty of free beer).
With beer tourism on the rise, brewery-run hotels aid in bringing the experience full-circle. California’s Stone Brewing announced that it will be opening a beer hotel in San Diego in 2018, and Dogfish Head Brewery has maintained a beer-inspired hotel in Delaware since 2014.
