BREWDOG READING OPENS THIS WEEK!
Another week, another amazing BrewDog bar for craft beer fanatics in the UK. Hot on the heels of the opening of BrewDog Seven Dials in London we have another hop hideout breaking cover for the people of the South of England. Just in time for the weekend we are opening our 33rd UK bar in a city where we have long wanted to plant the BrewDog flag. BrewDog Reading opens its doors at 12pm on Friday 16th March.
And the first 100 people through the doors will qualify for a raffle to win free beer for a year!
Also, Equity Punks – you can sign up for a special shareholder preview on Thursday 15th here!
Reading has been somewhere we have had our eye on for a while, thanks to its deep heritage in music and emerging craft beer scene. We finally managed to pinpoint an exact site in which to open, in the old Public bar at 11 Castle Street. The cool neo-classical two-story building looks awesome and we can’t wait to open up in this perfect location, a short hop from the Oracle Centre and ten minutes from the station.
Inside we have added the BrewDog stamp to the building and GM Sean and his crew will be pouring from twenty taps of curated craft beer from ourselves and breweries we know and love. The team will also be serving a range of spirits (including LoneWolf), Dear Green coffee and a range of bottled and canned beer to take away from four of our new-look cooler fridges.
BrewDog Reading will also offer a range of food for those wanting to stick around a while, from our fully-loaded burger and wings menu – and the bar will also be open at 11AM on weekends for brunch. Sound good? Our team is on-site at the moment pulling out all the finishing touches and we cannot wait to serve amazing beer and food the people of Reading.
BrewDog Reading will be open on Friday (the 16th) and Equity Punks, don’t forget to sign up for that sneak preview the night before!
St. Patrick's Day Showcase
Also arriving this weekend is a festival across our UK bars, the like of which hasn't been seen probably since #CollabFest. But then, St Patrick's Day is only once a year. This Saturday, 17th March, from open to close every single one of our UK BrewDog Bars (including Seven Dials and Reading) are hosting a day-long tap takeover of the cutting-edge of Irish craft brewing. We have teamed up with some truly amazing breweries to host a bar-wide party!
If you think St Pat's is just about a certain brand of dry Irish stout, then you go to the wrong places. Head instead to your local BrewDog Bar for beers from Boundary, Kinnegar, White Hag, DOT Brew, YellowBelly and Wicklow Wolf. The guys at these incredible breweries have sent over some super-fresh beers in every possible style you can think of - from passion fruit sours to 10% imperial stouts and everything in between. It truly is a perfect snapshot of modern Irish brewing.
Check out your local BrewDog bar on Facebook for details of what they are pouring on Saturday in our showcase of Irish craft beer. From Aberdeen to Bristol we are pouring some truly amazing beer from the Emerald Isle you won't want to miss - and hopefully if you are unfamiliar with the breweries you'll discover a new go-to source for great beer. Irish beer is about so much more than one beer drunk on one particular day!
