THE GREAT BREWDOG INTERNATIONAL BAR HUNT

Live on planet Earth? Help us put a bar in your city!

THE GREAT BREWDOG INTERNATIONAL BAR HUNT

So, those New Year’s Resolutions. How are they going? If you’ve reached for the biscuits a couple of times more than you should, or left the trainers yellowing in a cupboard – don’t worry about it. There’s plenty of time remaining in 2015 to get back into the good habits (or if not, buy another pair of trainers in the summer). For promises made at the start of the year to be kept, there needs to be some kind of incentive to keep your spirits up. An incentive, say, like having a BrewDog bar open in your city? Yes, we’re on the hunt for more great locations for our global bars – and if you know of a perfect site in the following areas – let us know! (And besides, helping others in their time if need is also a pretty good resolution to follow).

The 2015 Great International Bar Hunt is now on!

There are many locations that we are keen on (see later) – but as we begin the year, our prime focus is on one specific city and one very cool country. The city is Berlin – we had a number of sites there in mind, stretching back over the last eighteen months, but sadly none have come to fruition. We are still looking for that perfect site for BrewDog Berlin though, and really want to make it happen. We’re open to considering any area in the city, with minimum size being at least 150 square metres. The site must be able to be operated as a bar and we would consider sites large enough to also be a brewpub.

As to the country, well, we think the time is right for BrewDog USA to become a reality, and are really interested in sites on both the west and east coasts of America. For the west coast we are looking for a site that could operate as a brewpub; it would therefore need to be between 6,000-8,000 square feet and be able to obtain a licence for a bar and brewery. For our east coast location, we are looking for somewhere that would be operated as a bar only, and would have a minimum size requirement of 2,000 square feet. 

How does that sound? We can’t wait to find the perfect location!

 

As you may or may not know, we normally launch our international bars with awesome, passionate local partners; for an ideal candidate, we are ideally after the following:-

- Strong local knowledge, on the ground. A solid grasp of the local beer and bar scene, coupled with an understanding of what is current around the city, and a decent awareness for the districts and areas around town.

- Operational experience within hospitality is also very high on our list of priorities, so having run a bar before is pretty handy.

- Lastly, you will need to be mega passionate about craft beer and really want to build a successful business with us!

As long as you tick all of the above and are keen to make this project kick ass, our resident Mr World in charge of all International Bars, Neil Taylor (neiltaylor@brewdog.com), wants to hear from you! Let him know the locations that fit the bill, and why you would be the perfect partner for BrewDog in that area.

It’s not just those two areas we have in mind, though. The list below features planned or potential international bar openings for 2015 – these are locations where we have a foothold, or a bar that is in the works. However, we are always keen to hear from people on the ground who may have unusual information, or have spotted a fantastic site we can turn into one of our bars. If that’s you – then get in touch with our Neil!

•             Norway

•             Brussels

•             Thailand

•             Hong Kong

•             Singapore

•             Rome

 

But that’s not all! Aside from Germany and the USA there are many other places around the world where we are keen to open a BrewDog bar. We’re actively looking for local partners in these locations, to provide us with available sites and suggestions of the best places to open. If you know of the ultimate place for a craft beer bar in one of these countries – or anywhere else for that matter (this list is by no means exhaustive) where BrewDog can really shine, then let us know!

•             Netherlands

•             Australia

•             Russia

•             Ireland

•             France

•             New Zealand

•             Canada

•             China

•             Switzerland

•             Austria

•             Greece

•             South Korea

•             Denmark

 

So what do you think? Where should we open in these countries? As we saw with Helsinki, you never know where a simple suggestion will lead…

Oxford, UK!

There's a terrible and unexpected lack of good hoppy beer - lots of nice pubs only stocking old man beer, but plenty of young people who need to be shown the way.
Paul 17.04.2015 @ 10:42am
Rekjavic, Athens and Hong Kong spring to mind
Nigel Bennett 03.04.2015 @ 6:52am
Hi Guys,
Just had some of your awesome craft beers whilst on holiday in Edinburgh.
I reckon you should open a Brewdog Bar in the Perth hills in Kalamunda, Western Australia.
It would fit in perfectly in the cafe strip and with the mountain bike cafe culture !!
Great beers, well done !!
MarcoSoB 20.01.2015 @ 8:41am
Berlin is already booming with craft beer bars / brewpubs. Open one in Düsseldorf instead. Big (alt-)beer scene there but no craft. Plus its close to the dutch border.
shaun 19.01.2015 @ 4:59pm
what happened to Brighton? That was due to open mid-January?
Richard T 16.01.2015 @ 9:32am
MichaelDLarkin - Great stuff - hope you find something! Maybe take a few cans with you? Have to stay hydrated... ;)
Nate 16.01.2015 @ 2:23am
Sydney before Melbourne! Melb is already chock-a-block with quality beer venues.. Syd needs more!
Hydrojim 15.01.2015 @ 9:06pm
Hamble le Rice, in Hampshire is dying for one of your outstanding bars and with the amount of holiday makers could easily sustain one. So lets do it
MichaelDLarkin 15.01.2015 @ 2:21pm
Im going out this weekend in search of a place in Raleigh, NC for you.
Myles H 14.01.2015 @ 8:54am
I see that you dont mention any cities in Africa? Southern Africa Rocks!!
Frans 13.01.2015 @ 7:21am
Why not open one up in The Craft Beer Capital of Africa that also happens to be the most beautiful city in the world....Cape Town - South Africa
Simon 12.01.2015 @ 8:30pm
Still waiting for the bar in Bruxelles.
mapguy 12.01.2015 @ 7:11pm
Atlanta would be a good spot -- theres an up-and-coming local beer scene thats pretty nice with lots of craft beer lovers, a huge metro area around the city (and a lot of those suburbanites do come into town frequently for bars), large, open spaces available for probably cheap rent in several of the hip neighborhoods, and there are excellent beer bars there like the Porter Beer Bar without the beer bar scene being overcrowded already.Failing that though you should put it in NYC where Ill actually be living.
IronHef 12.01.2015 @ 2:20pm
Baltimore, Maryland!! Nice central location between Philly and Washington DC.
bboxall 12.01.2015 @ 8:31am
Perth, Western Australia - one of the most isolated cities in the world!
nico3280 12.01.2015 @ 5:08am
West coast, somewhere in the Pacific northwest where it would compliment the local beer scene. LA is nice, but Id hate to see it get too exclusive from local celebs. East coast, the former CBGBs just makes sense.
11.01.2015 @ 7:44pm
Definitely Istanbul!
gglowe 11.01.2015 @ 5:41pm
Vancouver - Gastown, Yaletown or Granville.
BrewCA 11.01.2015 @ 5:36pm
Definitely San Francisco
Sebastian 11.01.2015 @ 4:41pm
Lewisham (the new hackney) on the corner of lewisham way and court hill rd there is a derict Art Deco cinema/bowling alley, unbelievably not been snapped up yet! Would make an amazing brewdog!
USCF 11.01.2015 @ 4:14pm
We need a BrewDog bar in Madrid!! Spanish craft beer scene is developing very quickly, and Madrid is the logical next step after opening the one in Barcelona. Dont wait for too long and take advantage of becoming the largest craft beer bar in the capital!

imperialish 11.01.2015 @ 3:14pm
Ill second the beercavalier and suggest toronto given the expanding reach of your beers into our better drinking establishments. There is certainly demand for BrewDog here and a brew pub would fit nicely into our collection of beer-focused bars. As for the US - Portland and Boston ... But Austin would be a good fit, too.
mela713 11.01.2015 @ 2:59pm
Austin, Texas!!!Hey, Im very surprised you havent done any TV episodes in Texas at all and youve done California multiple times. Austin, Dallas, Houston and (finally) San Antonio all have thriving craft beer scenes. But BrewDog Austin would be brilliant. Live Music Capital of the World, huge college town, average of 110 people moving here per day, home of the first co-op brewery and cinema brewery.

Filip 11.01.2015 @ 1:48pm
Wrocław, Poland would be nice.
Bearzfeet 11.01.2015 @ 1:18pm
Boston, MA, USA or Providence, Rhode Island. USA Boston would definitely draw huge crowds (especially a location in Cambridge or Somerville), and we have over 100 colleges in Greater Boston and an exciting beer scene.Providence RI is badly under served for good bars/brewpubs, and is also a great, lively college town. Added bonus is its close enough to also capture day trippers who come down from Boston, or weekenders from NYC, as well as being a focal point for locals.
Rocío 11.01.2015 @ 1:08pm
Another vote for Madrid! Spanish people love beer and these days craft beer is becoming more popular in our country so this would be an excellent location.
Lenriqel 11.01.2015 @ 12:53pm
Poland! - to be precise Krakow or WroclawPolish craft is growing incredibly fast. From no craft breweries in 2010 to over 500 beer premieres last year.The market is open, and people drink almost everything what appears in tap houses of specialistic shops.Moreover, Your beer has very good status here. I have never in my life heard any bad words about Brewdog. Why Krakow/Wroclaw? Lot of beer events are happening in those cities. Pracownia Piwa and Pinta(two of the most popular polish breweries) have their tap houses in Krakow. More and more people here are intersted in craft. We would be realy honored to have you here.
fkoolen 11.01.2015 @ 12:50pm
Id go for Maastricht in the Netherlands, beautiful old buildings and the international location would fit the BrewDog bill nicely!
Ryan I 11.01.2015 @ 12:44pm
New Orleans, enough said. New Orleans has had a love affair with beer do to the large German and Irish population that live there. Plus there is always something going on and not to mention the food that goes great with beer.
Schalk M 11.01.2015 @ 12:44pm
hey... Why is Cape Town not on the list?
Jordan 11.01.2015 @ 12:37pm

Pilot 11.01.2015 @ 12:34pm
Why dont u try to settle in Poland!? Personally I would recommend Cracow - its congested with tourists from around the world, there are already two polish craft breweries working there, there is huge awareness of craft beer culture, there is like 4 craft beer multitap bar working already and its no over. It would be nice to have you here. Trust me craft beer awareness in Poland is growing faster than light. In about a year, we gain something about 45 new carft beer breweries of different sizes. It is estimated that craft beer share in polish beer market is 10%. Id like to emphasize that polish craft beer revolution started only 3 years ago with the first craft brewery Pinta.
tutu 11.01.2015 @ 12:30pm
You should definitely open a new bar in Istanbul, specifically in Karakoy region. Istanbul is a very trendy destination, visited by lots of tourists every year. There is a good amount of thirsty for quality beer locals as well.
Christophe 11.01.2015 @ 12:29pm
Come in Lausanne Switzerland guys we love craft beer and brewdog. It would be great! Cheers!
BrewingInBelfast 11.01.2015 @ 12:25pm
Belfast would welcome BrewDog with open arms! Several sites are free in whats called the Cathedral Quarter just off the main shopping areas of Royal Avenue and the High Street. Belfast in undergoing something of a Craft Beer Revolution with a couple bars opening up recently dedicated to the lovely stuff, but having been to BrewDogs in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Nottingham, I can tell you that the people of Belfast are ready for you! I can guarantee interesting and prosperous times for BrewDog in Belfast.
adalek 11.01.2015 @ 12:25pm
Think about starting a bar in Warsaw, Poland. With the craft beer revolution that is happening and popularity of your beers in bars here, it would definitely pay off.
pawlinio 11.01.2015 @ 12:23pm
Wrocław, Poland!! The greatest place for Brewdog :)
Mr Duke 11.01.2015 @ 12:23pm
Wimbledon !!..we have 100 restaurants, but..only one decent pub..Brewdog would be an oasis in a craft beer desert !!
KM87 11.01.2015 @ 12:21pm
Belfast!!Craft beer is huge in Northern Ireland at the minute and people are crying out for a bar dedicated to serving quality beers.
Kacpergron 11.01.2015 @ 12:20pm
Warsaw or Cracow - Poland :)
Nacht Kaiser 11.01.2015 @ 12:15pm
We need Brewdog in Montreal, we got considered one of the top 10 beer city in the world recently, having Brewdog here would just be the cherry on top of it. And I would die for a collaboration between you guys and Le Castor or Dieu du Ciel! :D
Steve V 11.01.2015 @ 12:15pm
It would be lovely if a BrewDog bar opened in the Netherlands. Amsterdam is not the best place in my opinion, its too crowded everywhere. And I dont really like the city (though I study there). So I would suggest one of the other three big cities; Utrecht, Rotterdam or The Hague. Utrecht and The Hague could use some more awesome places, Amsterdam and Rotterdam already have more quality sites.
JG 11.01.2015 @ 12:10pm
Its gotta be Dublin next. Weve only been asking for years. DublinDublinDublin.
ShanghaiScot 11.01.2015 @ 12:10pm
If you want to open in China, it has to be Shanghai. BrewDog already sold on tap in several bars around the city and in bottles in many others. Get yourself onto Yongkang Road or around the French Concession area of Shanghai.
wedar 11.01.2015 @ 12:10pm

I would love to run brew dog spot in Krakow, Poland. such a great environment for craft beer business. any questions, please look for Pedro Alvares Cabral on facebook.

+1 for Budapest!
roken 10.01.2015 @ 2:13pm
Dont get tunnel vision on the coasts for your USA location(s). Chicago has an amazing appreciation for craft beer and the neighborhoods of Wicker Park or Logan Square would be perfect fits for BrewDogs approach and attitude to the craft.

Hewdog 10.01.2015 @ 3:48am
Melbourne, Australia has a thriving craft beer scene that is only going up and up, the strongest in Australia. Starting a Brewdog here would be wise indeed.
Cruicky8PG 10.01.2015 @ 12:14am
Portland, OR - Home to over 60 microbreweries or anywhere on the Central Coast of California. San Luis Obispo is a college town with >60% students with a love for all things craft beer. FIrestone Walker would be your neighbour!

Lerwick, Shetland!
Henkdroid 09.01.2015 @ 7:45pm
Amsterdam is the heart of NL craft beer these days, but there are so many good craft beer bars there already, serving BrewDog as well. Id say Rotterdam, Utrecht or Haarlem would be good spots for you. Haarlem is closest to my house, so Id say Haarlem...
grimbarian4life 09.01.2015 @ 7:35pm
I second Mr. Greektoe, Grimsby should get a bar! The only problem is that I would like to point out to the esteemed gentleman that Grimsby is not in the south.

Why not look at creating the world’s most southern Brew Dog bar in Hobart Tasmania, fast becoming known as Australia’s foodie capital and home to many craft brewery’s including Moo Brew which actually have one of your ‘End of history” beers proudly on display in their bar. Hobart has a proud history in beer with Australia oldest operating brewery (now sadly a globally owned main stream product) located in town but has fast become a boutique beer drinker’s paradise with several brew pups now currently in operation making this indeed the ideal location to launch the Aussie assault on bland commercial beer! When launching a bar in Hobart there is only one location to do it and that’s Sullivans Cove. It is here where Hobart comes to play with everything from large cruise ships stoping throughout summer through to Australia’s largest arts festivals MONA FOMA and DARK MOFO which draws thousands of people to the state each year.The people of Hobart are well aware of PUNK IPA with it now being stocked in most boutique bars and strongly featured at the Tasmanian International Beer festival (another event hosted within Sullivans Cove) but its time they discovered the entire range of amazing beers you have to offer!
Natty8ce 09.01.2015 @ 3:59am
Wisconsin has plenty of room for more beer!
James 09.01.2015 @ 1:41am
Cincinnati, OH has a thriving brew scene. Louisville, KY does too actually. In the east, go to Tucson, AZ!
Hibernation 09.01.2015 @ 1:27am
The Pacific Northwest is a micro brew haven. Portland area even has a radio show where they talk about what brewers are up to, and what will be coming out. Just look into the area.
Hibernation 09.01.2015 @ 1:24am
Washington or Oregon States would be Fantastic.
Dinonav23 09.01.2015 @ 12:50am
Northern California, USA. Brewdog, this would be a amazing place for a brewpub!!!! Come on over!!! Thx dino.
Jesse B 09.01.2015 @ 12:44am
Calgary AB Canada would be great! We might not have as big a scene as Toronto or Vancouver, but its on the rise. We have great beer bars and breweries already, but it would be amazing to have an international presence like brewdog here! And we have great water and plenty of local prairies with great grains to brew with.
Louise 09.01.2015 @ 12:37am
Yes! Hamburg!
Justin H 09.01.2015 @ 12:18am
Totally behind Brewdog USA (and a shareholder :-) - Santa Monica or venice beach please, theres a craft beer revolution going on!

I second the choice for Columbus, OH USA. Great beer scene!
Marty86 08.01.2015 @ 11:50pm
Would love it to be Kansas but we are bit ready. Saying that Kansas City is vibrant and amazing. Its central and instead of craft beer coming from out to in it could spread outward!
Knutæ 08.01.2015 @ 11:18pm
Im guessing the Norwegian pub is going to be in Oslo, but you should open one in Bergen as well! Maybe ask the guys at 7 Fjell Bryggeri for advice?
Lois 08.01.2015 @ 11:04pm
Vancouver, Canada! There is a great craft beer scene here but it is missing a Brewdog! Gastown or Yaletown would be an awesome location!

A dream would come true if you guys would show up once in Budapest. Great city in the middle of Europe with a lot of transit through it. Awesome places in the downtown with lots of possible places for a bar. There is a cool beer revolution going on, lots of festivals during summer. Your stuff is well known here so this is a success no question!!!

Come to the fruitbasket of Denmark, Svendborg, lying on the edge of the best sailing areas of nothern Europe.. The 130 year old farmacy just across a newly renovated square and the 800 year old church, has just come up for sale. Som 600m2 of handpainted roof, wooden panels and shelfs, with white tiles all over. You need this and we sure do.
Stevied 08.01.2015 @ 9:41pm
Melbourne has several great craft beer bars already so you know there is a good market base, we have some awesome breweries, for more collaborations, Moon Dog please!.A cool Brewdog Bar in one of our laneways or on one of the rooftops would be awesome.Then getting to GABS 2015 will be easier too....
JBrew 08.01.2015 @ 9:31pm
Australia, Newcastle has a growing craft beer scene. Otherwise Melbourne would suit very well also.
DuncanM 08.01.2015 @ 9:24pm
I second the call for Cork, Ireland, yeeaaaa! Weve got a burgeoning craft beer quarter around North Main Street, South Main Street and Cornmarket Street, 2 micro breweries, all within walking distance of each other, new stadium being built, new arts venue being built IN AN OLD BREWERY! Ripe for the picking Brewdog! Also theres this! http://www.rte.ie/news/2009/1103/123731-lonelyplanet/ .......bit old but still.........
mickeyfmann 08.01.2015 @ 8:59pm
Chicago for a brewpub! And please let me work there! In all honesty the Mid West is really growing as a Craft Beer destination. People are expanding their palettes and more an more options are coming all the time. And seriously, hire me!
elena 08.01.2015 @ 8:52pm
REYKJAVIK, Iceland. Tasty local beers, excellent bar scene, pleasant people and a unique location. The Land of Lava needs a BrewDog.
AMcAlear 08.01.2015 @ 8:37pm
Toronto would be good, but Montreal would be great as well. (Correction to a previous commenter - Montreal has 4 universities) It also has a serious culture of good food and drink out with friends and much lower leasing rates than Toronto.
Samu 08.01.2015 @ 8:34pm
Malta. Simply because 99% of the beer here sucks and 100% of the bars are serving the beers that suck.

shaunc83 08.01.2015 @ 7:05pm
What about Budapest?Theyve already got a craft beer scene, with LéhűtÅ‘, Csak a Jó Sör, Sörspecialista and ÉlesztÅ‘. Im sure Brewdog would go down well.
Monster 08.01.2015 @ 7:03pm
America needs this! East coast - Philadelphia, Boston, Orlando West coast- Seattle, Portland Midwest - St. Louis
Plato 08.01.2015 @ 6:45pm
Trondheim, Norway. Great beer scene with a lot of really good brewers and some quality craft breweries. Probably the best beer city in Norway.
Nealc 08.01.2015 @ 6:44pm
Some good spots available in the centre of Stavanger. Stavanger needs a good beer pub, there is only one and it needs compitition.

No brewdog in mauritius, but I once tasted one of your brews-trashy blonde at lambic-which is a beer importer here. I really liked it.
Gary 08.01.2015 @ 4:34pm
Another vote for Madrid. The Spanish drink a lot of beer, and they have a bar based culture, but you just cant easily get a decent beer here.Plus, as someone else pointed out, the craft beer market is on the point of exploding here, get in before someone else does.
coaster 08.01.2015 @ 4:32pm

Richard T 08.01.2015 @ 4:31pm
To Chrisvc, WillyJozie, kvn, Brackens Bitches and others - if you live in a city that should feature a BrewDog bar, then get out on the streets and keep your eyes peeled for a suitable site! Any disused corner units, or bars that have gone out of business and are for sale? If you find one, and think it would do for us - email Neil, and who knows what might happen?

Living in Canada...but I doubt youd get one in Calgary or Edmonton (aka where I live)...so Im gonna go with Vancouver in the Gastown area.
Chrisvc 08.01.2015 @ 4:12pm
Forget about Berlin. Hamburg has an already sizeable and strongly growing Craft Beer industry, with many small-sized breweries and pubs located on-site. A pub near the party district of St.Pauli, e.g. around the Reeperbahn area would mean the first actual Craft Beer-themed pub with, so far, no direct competition.
Rall 08.01.2015 @ 3:53pm
Forget about Lausanne, but Geneva yes. Nice international city and no craft beer Shop and bar.
battlegarden 08.01.2015 @ 3:47pm
@MBuzz: Rubbish, of course there is a fine a craft beer bar in Lausanne... !

Ghent is the place to be in Belgium!
NRitchie 08.01.2015 @ 3:39pm
Currently living in Meribel France. France is just screaming for a Brewdog. Brewdog-Apres Ski would go down an absolute storm here in the centre.

hawkeyeeliott 08.01.2015 @ 3:21pm
Hey, Brewdog is popular in the good old Republic of South Africa - how about a pub here (plus lots of Scottish heritage!)
ehsfo 08.01.2015 @ 3:19pm
San Francisco, the old Anchor Steam brewery will be available when they move...
WillyJozie 08.01.2015 @ 3:15pm
We could certainly do with one here in Johannesburg. The craft beer scene is big with many local breweries. We need one our side of town,in Northcliff...
Jeremy 08.01.2015 @ 3:12pm
Portland, Oregon! Craft beer capital of the US!
kvn 08.01.2015 @ 3:11pm
Montréal is a really nice city to operate a brewpub in. Open one in downtown, there are two universities and this is the place most Montrealers converge everyday.

Brewdog Rich - høhø very funny.. You should pick up on your geography skills! Someone at Beavertown said Oslo and Stavanger already has one worldclass beerbar in Cardinal. You couldnt top them, could you?
Bracken's Bitches 08.01.2015 @ 2:48pm
Hey how long have I been asking for a BrewDog bar in Dallas? Ill run the dam thing for you. Dallas TX!
brussells 08.01.2015 @ 2:45pm
How does a Brewdog Boston sound?The Massachusetts beer scene is lively and welcoming to such endeavors.
Ruben 08.01.2015 @ 2:26pm
Forget Brussels, come to Ghent.
Richard T 08.01.2015 @ 2:11pm

Cork, Ireland please! Much more laid back and beautiful than Dublin which is already saturated with substandard craft brew houses.
Chris E 08.01.2015 @ 1:59pm
Montreal needs you. Join the ranks of Dieu Du Ciel, Brouhaha, Saint Bock, LAmère A Boire and Benelux.

Brewdog Rich - Helsinki is not in Norway!
big_seoul 08.01.2015 @ 1:52pm
Come to Seoul, South Korea. The craft scene is just getting rolling here. Locald pay about $7.00 for one bottle at the grocery here.
O_Goldberg 08.01.2015 @ 1:50pm
South of Poland, please!
DiggeR 08.01.2015 @ 1:49pm
Another vote for Melbourne Australia. Its the craft beer capital of the country (highlighted by the annual Good Beer Week festival). Plenty of space and people who could show you around!
Baro 08.01.2015 @ 1:49pm
In spite of all difficulties...maybe Moscow, Russia?
Pcqueen172 08.01.2015 @ 1:39pm
Tucson, AZ! Our craft beer scene is growing rapidly. I have a friend that works in commercial real estate who is a craft beer fan and a restaurant/bar downtown just closed 2 months that would be great for you!

JonathanS 08.01.2015 @ 1:27pm
Id take a serious look at Ibiza, its not all clubbing and theres some signs of an interest in quality beer - Ibosim are brewing some very decent local craft and a cool bar in the old town would likely work well if logistics allowed
Birrotes 08.01.2015 @ 1:25pm
Madrid, many shops but only 4 proper craft beer bars and very far one from other, the oportunity is here, come now before the craft beer movement explodes! Thanks mates!
fercen 08.01.2015 @ 1:24pm
Append the list of Finland locations with Tampere. You know.. plenty of thirsty technology students around with passion for beers with attitude. :)
Under the Brewdog sun 08.01.2015 @ 1:21pm
Seville please! Wonderful location, with awesome weather to have some great IPAs! Or Dublin. Come on!
Sl 08.01.2015 @ 1:20pm

Jon Ragnar 08.01.2015 @ 1:19pm
I wanna say Reykjavík IcelandThe Craft beer revolution has started here and in the last years we have gone from Guinness being the most hardcore you can get to having many microbreweries. Mikkeller have been scouting Reykjavík too. Please come to Iceland
Dan84 08.01.2015 @ 1:13pm
melbourne, Australia would be a killer place for. Brewdog bar.The big Brewers are super scared of craft beer and would love to see them try to play catch up.

Joris 08.01.2015 @ 1:05pm
Antwerp - Belgium!
MBuzz 08.01.2015 @ 1:05pm
Lausanne Switzerland. Why ?Lots of craft brewers (la Nebuleuse, Dr Gabs, Boxer, brasserie du Jorat,...), craft beer secialized shops (moscavins, augraindorge, miseenbière,...), strong night life, but NO craft beer bar !
Andreas 08.01.2015 @ 1:04pm

Knighthood India 08.01.2015 @ 1:03pm

Toronto, Canada and Tauranga, New Zealand.
mmackem 08.01.2015 @ 12:56pm
Manila, The Philippines - theres a huge gap in the market considering how many restaurants and bars there are!

Amsterdam or Utrecht please!!
Coldova 08.01.2015 @ 12:53pm

koolburger 08.01.2015 @ 12:48pm
Copenhagen Denmark.Quite a lot of microbrewing going on plus a huge crowd for quality beer thats anti-conglomerate.
Amsterdam 08.01.2015 @ 12:48pm
great beer from Brewdog at Bar Baarsch in Amsterdam
bodiddly. 08.01.2015 @ 12:47pm
Lille, France. Incredibly cool city. Fantastic craft beer scene.
Helios 08.01.2015 @ 12:40pm
I agree with SteveIOM, the Isle of Man is screaming out for a bar with genuine character and excellent beer. Would be perfect to see a BrewdogLite Bar or something here!
Occean 08.01.2015 @ 12:40pm
One of these would go down a treat in Wimbledon!
Juko 08.01.2015 @ 12:39pm
You have to open a BrewDog pub in Madrid, Spain. I hope when the one in Barcelona will finally open, you will realise how mad Spanish people are about craft beer and you will open one pub in the capital of the country.
Doonhamer 08.01.2015 @ 12:34pm
How about Denver for the brewpub?
CharlieG 08.01.2015 @ 12:32pm
What about Spain? We have a great pub/bar culture here ;-)
Sjoeter 08.01.2015 @ 12:29pm

Jodie D 08.01.2015 @ 12:25pm
If you can offer one more in the UK please please let it be Canterbury, Kent. Im on the hunt for a suitable bar/pub!
@beercavalier - cristian 08.01.2015 @ 12:24pm
Toronto - Canada - youve proven how well your beer does when WVRST bar on King street had you on a tap take over and it was busy. The craft scene in Toronto let alkne Canada is probably one of the most competitive. You would do very well! I spent a lot of time in your Edinbrough bar and thats what Toronto needs. Traffic would be none stop. I tried emailing your Canadian distributor a couple times with no reply about having more Punk IPA on our LCBO store shelves. Toronto would welcome your variety of brews and you guys would love us back! Please consider Toronto! My twitter handle is above and thank you
Joe 08.01.2015 @ 12:23pm
Dublin please!!
SteveIOM 08.01.2015 @ 12:21pm
Id love to see a BrewDog pub in the Isle of Man! Even if its just a beer tent during the TT festival!
