Our Aberdeenshire hotel is back on track

Equity for Punks V is now live! Click here to find out more about investing in BrewDog

We love the fact that so many people journey to north-eastern Aberdeenshire to try our beer at source and meet the amazing men and women who work for BrewDog. But we also know that Ellon is a long way from pretty much anywhere else. So as DogHouse Columbus takes shape in Ohio we can announce today we have scored an amazing piece of land right next door to our Ellon facility.

And we are expanding onto it with a home-grown hotel. DogHouse Ellon is go.

We have dialled in an arrangement with our neighbours at Power Jacks to take their 3.25 acre site and use it to continue to keep up with the incredible demand for our Scottish-brewed craft beer.

By the end of 2018 we are looking to have opened a brand new 300HL brewhouse on the site (the same size as our Site 3 brewery), along with a new packaging hall and bespoke canning line. We opened Site 3 in mid-2016 and it is already at capacity. You guys truly rock. So adding another brewhouse to Ellon is the perfect time to add that home-away-from-home for the many visitors who also come and see us.

Set to open its doors in the first half of next year, DogHouse Ellon will rock 26 rooms overlooking our new brewhouse – so anyone who stays there can wake up to those brewday aromas (no alarm clock required). We are going all out on the rooms – each will have Punk IPA on tap and will be en-suite with a killer shower-beer fridge so you are never more than an arm’s reach from a chilled craft beer!

We couldn’t have envisaged this kind of project without the support from our amazing army of BrewDog Equity Punks. You guys built this. So as a thank you to the people who have supported us in this way we are offering card-carrying Equity Punks priority booking for the DogHouse Ellon – so when you rock up to the brewery we own together to check it out, we have the perfect place for you to stay before you head home. How does that sound?

We can’t wait to get this project started as we expand to the east side of our current brewhouse, creating more jobs for Aberdeenshire and ending up with a destination for the many people who travel to our part of the world to see how we do things. A brand new BrewDog hotel; two minutes’ walk from DogTap, a minute from our HQ offices. Introducing the DogHouse. You may never want to check-out.

Karen, Ian, Darren - Everyone asking when it can be booked, don't worry we will let you know. The building hasn't been converted over yet so we are a ways away yet. But hold on, we will give you all plenty of notice :)

Terry from Bristol 20.02.2018 @ 8:36pm
Got to be a lot better than the RAF accommodation I used to live in at Peterhead. I couldn't even have a beer in my room then (and it was well before Brewdog got going so the only choice was McEwens or Tennents).

I'm an Aberdonian living in York with one son who works for Brewdog and another lives just along the road from the Brewery in Ellon and I have two dogs. PLEASE make it affordable to come and stay there - it would be ideal.

Steve 20.02.2018 @ 5:37pm
Brilliant, so are you guys no longer looking to acquire the land to the north of the current site from the council then?

Daria - This is the information! We announced it this morning - don't worry any further announcements will be shared with our Equity Punks on the forum so you guys can get the heads-up

James - The site has been purchased from Power Jacks, yes, they will move to a new purpose- built facility later this year.

Pat - We’re looking to make our four legged friends comfy as well! Stay tuned!
Daria 20.02.2018 @ 2:56pm

That is just darn awesome! I will have to book a weekend there for my birthday next year. I can't think of a better place to celebrate it.
James 20.02.2018 @ 11:08am
Does this mean power jacks is leaving Ellon? or rebuilding their HQ somewhere else? Or was this the land the other side of the road from Powerjacks that they maybe owned?
Pat Hanson 20.02.2018 @ 10:46am
Hopefully the hotel rooms will be dog-friendly?
