BrewDog Bars update!

BrewDog Bars update!

It's been a while since we told you where we're at with some of our latest bar projects, and boy have we been busy! With dedicated team members now hunting high and low for property and partners, it's all systems go and we are on track to open more than 10 new bars in the next 6 months. I know, right?!


Incase you missed them, we recently launched BrewDog Tokyo (pictured below) and BrewDog Sheffield (pictured above!), both of which are kicking some serious ass! Been to one of these? Let us know what you think in the comments!


Here's an update on where we're at with our bars across planet Earth:



BrewDog Cardiff
31 Westgate Street, Cardiff, CF10 1DX

We've secured a site in Cardiff and the licence has been approved! We're just finalising the designs and we're hoping to launch late May/early June this year!

BrewDog Liverpool
1 Manolis Yard, Colquit Street, Liverpool, L1 4NL

Despite some initial reservations from the local police force, we have secured our licence in Liverpool! We are just finalising the designs and plans for fit out and we're confident we can get this bar rocking and rolling by mid-June

BottleDog King's Cross
69, Gray's Inn Road, London

The site of our first ever off licence shop as well as our new Baby HQ in London will be opening its doors in April. You'll be able to pick up growler refills, amazing bottled beers from BrewDog and hundreds of awesome craft breweries from around the world, speak to our qualified and knowledgeable staff about the range and sit and read craft beer books at your leisure. This will be the best bottle shop in London.


BrewDog Dundee
Ground Floor, Chamber Building, Panmure Street, Dundee, DD1 1ED

Our fourth bar in Scotland has been a long time coming, but it's finally here! Due to open in May, the building is one epic gothic structure and we're sure we can do the bold exterior justice with some pretty badass beers flowing inside.

BrewDog Clapham / Dalston Brewing Academy

We can't say too much but we've got a few irons in fires for both a bar south of the river and our long-awaited brewing academy in East London. We've identified sites for both, we just have some pretty exciting stuff to sort out before we can announce anything more...hopefully we'll get these launched by late Summer though! Stay tuned...


The DogTap
BrewDog HQ, Ellon, Aberdeenshire

Our Bar, Shop and Visitor Centre plans at our Ellon HQ are progressing well. We will also have a 10HL pilot brewery in this space too. With a bit of luck we will be open in time for our 2014 AGM.

Brighton, Oxford, Cambridge and Norwich

These are our other top target sities right now. We are spending a lot of time in all four checking out the available venues, but if you find an epic space please email jhickson@brewdog.com so he can hop on the next train and check it out!



BrewDog Gothenburg
Kungsgatan 10B, Gothenburg

Following the launch of BrewDog Stockholm in May last year, we're super psyched to have secured a deal for a second bar in Sweden! Close to Andra Långgatan/Järntorget, Haga and Magasinsgatan, we're hoping to open this bar on the anniversary of BrewDog Stockholm's launch, 22nd May. How's that for tidiness!


BrewDog Berlin

We're staking our claim in Berlin this Summer! We've pretty much secured a site, although we can't reveal the exact details of its location until a few bits of paper are signed, sealed and delivered. We've got a Bar Manager though, and we'll announce the exact location as soon as we're able to start work on the site!

BrewDog Rome & BrewDog Florence

We've got venues for both of these in the works, and pending a few final administrative joys we should be in a position to announce both formally in the coming weeks. Both bars should be opening late Summer, so stay tuned for our first official craft beer bars in Italy!


BrewDog Bologna

We've found an awesome partner to work with locally on this one, but the finer details on the location are still top secret for the time being. We'll announce these as soon as we can on social media...!

BrewDog Helsinki

Following a pretty crazy day on the blog, we can confirm we have found an amazing partner to work with on the launch of BrewDog Helsinki! Thanks so much to everyone who got in touch, the response was astronomical and we're insanely excited to be opening a bar in Helsinki! HELL YEAH! More announcements on the exact location will come soon, we are aiming to open this Summer.

Paris, Barcelona, Norway, Brussels and New Delhi

As always, we are on the hunt for ideal venues in these locations. Our partners are already on it, but by all means throw something in the comments if you think there is a vacant property we should check out!

Any cities we've missed off? Let us know in the comments!

  • @Davyleask - You already have the Valhalla brewery on Unst. That more than makes up for all the years we had to drink fizzy Tennents or fizzy McEwans.
    And Aberdeen is just down the road.
    See you in June ....

  • A BrewDog bar in Switzerland would be nice! So many people love your beers here! Lausanne, Geneva or Zurich maybe?
    G S24.03.2014
  • Few months ago i asked for a brewdog in bologna and now i know it will happens soon!!
    Im so happy!! And i will kill my wallett because of you!
    I really love your beers. Italy is the way
  • Singapore! The bar scene here kicked off about 4 years ago and its now a thriving hub for cokctail bars and craft beer breweries / micro breweries.
    Also, I went to the only place in town where they sell BrewDogs on draught and they were sold out on Friday night!
  • I recommend either Downtown Disney or Universal City Walk in Florida but it would need to be both Big and Brash!!!!
  • Belfast or Dublin seems like a no brainer !!
  • Galway - a university city with an educated population of beer connoisseurs, an ideal match for the Brewdog franchise. (Witness the success of Salt House bar.)
  • Barcelona!!!
  • Hey, Norwich would be the perfect home to a new Brewdog pub! Pleeease :)
  • In Norway, why not Stavanger, the twin city of Aberdeen?
  • Fairbanks alaska, just do it.
  • Seems like Irelands being snubbed at this point.
  • I think Ottawa Ontario Canada would be a great place lots of craft beer enthusiasts a booming craft beer market and with several new breweries opening and many already open including brew pubs I think brew dogs would do fantastic hear in Canadas capital city cheers and I hope to see you hear in the near future both your brew pub and mire of your delicious thirst quenching beers it would be cool to see you guys come hear and choose one of our craft breweries to but on your show cheers a homebrewer and a craft beer enthusiast BrewByMe
  • Tooting.

  • A BrewDog bar in Cambridge is going to hurt my wallet, but Im sure I can fight through the pain and take solace in my EFP discount!
  • Does it have to be Brussels? Leuven is nearby, we have the biggest beer festival in Belgium and a good crowd of beer lovers with one local bar owner going for the record books for most different beers stocked. Theres a nice corner property on a square, two stories and a lovely vaulted cellar. Used to be a bar, then became a restaurant. How badly do you want to sell Fake Lager in Stellas home town? :-D
  • The Cathedral quarter in Belfast would be well suited.
  • Paris is the next target you must achieve!!! Im so waiting for this....
  • Amsterdam or The Hague for me!
  • Paris !
    french craftsman22.03.2014
  • Sydney. Craft beer scene starting to take off here so would be perfect timing...
  • A brewdog bar in melbourne Australia would fit in perfectly.
  • Sydney, or anywhere in Australia
  • Brighton please!
  • The Shetland Isles most northerly Brewdog in the uk would be awesome
  • Carlise!! I also second york!!
  • Amsterdam! (although we do have more than 2 great beer bars - its at least 3!)
  • Glasgow southside.
  • Dundee!! Why not Stirling?? It would be an ideal location. Good crowds at the weekends plus the big student population. I couldnt think of anything better than sitting in the sun sipping 5am Saint looking at Stirling Castle and the Wallace monument :)
  • Amsterdam, do it!
    Two Chefs Brewing21.03.2014
  • I NEED one in Rio de Janeiro/Brazil!!!
  • Southampton (uk), duh!
  • Hey, what would be better the brew dog and warm beaches? I dont know either. Please come to Maui.
    Maui drinker21.03.2014
  • Mariehamn in Finland should be the second one after Helsinki. Or anywhere except Turku.
  • you guys really should look at East Dulwich in Southwark...very much the new Clapham, especially Lordship Lane. Weve got 5 craft brewers within a 3 mile radius (not to mention Kernel/Partisan) and an amazing craft beer establishment (The Flying Pig) which has really kicked off the craft scene here.
    mike hibbard21.03.2014

  • Pittsburgh PA, USA would hella awesome! Just sayin... Pennsylvania has the oldest brewery in the US and its a great craft beer city!!!!
  • Dublin! Ill even pay for your Ryanair flight
  • Kent needs a brewdog!!!! Bromley, Canterbury or Sevenoaks needs relief from boring larger and underwhelming Ale.
  • Can you put one at the bottom of my road in Muswell Hill, p-l-e-a-s-e? My wife says its OK.
  • Berlin . My old haunt if I knew that I would of applied.
  • Leamington Spa has a host of quality restaurants and some pretty respectable watering holes. It young & affluent residents are crying out for a decent Craft Beer Pub.
  • Dubai. For the sake of my tastebuds, my sanity, and potentially to being about peace in the Middle East, please PLEASE open a bar in Dubai.

    Have a heart; dont make me resort to drinking any more bottles of yellow with lime wedges stuffed in them.

  • When is a Brewdog bar comming to Australia ???
    Hop to it21.03.2014
  • City of Norway ?
  • Open one in Amsterdam!
  • Shocked you guys havent even considered Sydney or Melbourne, both cities experiencing a massive bar + craft beer revolution - maybe not to the American extent, but good priced beer will get a great reception.

    Although for the UK, Brighton would be lovely, as Im moving there later this year =).
  • Amsterdam please. That city needs more than two decent beer pubs :)
  • Dublin has to be a contender, right?
  • Houston usa. They love their microbreweries
    tommy hitman hart21.03.2014

    Alpha King21.03.2014
  • Id suggest Montreal as a potential city. Microbrewed beer is already popular there and I think BrewDog would be welcomed with open arms
  • Sydney Australia, please!!
    Ben S21.03.2014
  • Ten new bars in the next 6 months !! Awesome !!
    Im glad my/our money is being invested well. Hoping to get up to Sheffield soon, to try the new bar there. And if Dundee is open before June, maybe I can call in there on my way up to Aberdeen.
    Pete H., Nottm21.03.2014
