BrewDog Unveils Plans for DogHouse, a Crowdfunded Craft Beer Hotel at New Ohio Brewery Headquarters
Usually being in the doghouse means you’ve done something wrong, but you’ll be begging to be sent to the BrewDog DogHouse craft beer hotel, which could be coming soon to Columbus, Ohio.
Scottish-based brewery BrewDog announced in 2015 it planned to build a 100,000 square foot U.S. headquarters in the Buckeye state. The brewery is expected to open during the first half of 2017.
This week, BrewDog launched a crowdfunding campaign to add a ridiculously sweet craft beer hotel, the DogHouse, on the same site as the brewery.
The DogHouse sounds like a beer geek’s heaven. Plans for the state-of-the-art hotel list features including beer taps with IPA on draft in every room, a luxury suite with an IPA-filled hot tub, craft beer with every meal, including beer pairings (even for breakfast).
If you’re still not impressed, how about this: DogHouse promises to feature a beer fridge in the shower, making all your shower beer dreams come true.
“Forget Disneyland, this is the new happiest place on Earth,” BrewDog Founder and CEO James Watt said in a news release. “The DogHouse will be a mecca for those craft beer geeks seeking a vacation with a difference.”
BrewDog is crowdfunding the craft beer hotel. They launched an Indiegogo campaign this week, hitting 70 percent of its funding goal in less than 24 hours. Among the perks promised to campaign backers is access to behind-the-scenes plans and a glimpse at designs when they are developed.
“Beer buffs around the world have been crying out for a beer hotel since we first floated the idea on social media, so we’re going to kick-start the most ambitious project we’ve ever planned, all with the backing of our global community of beer fans,” Watt said.
The brewery expects DogHouse to be complete by late September 2018 if it meets its crowdfunding goal.
