BottleDog is coming!

Our first bottle shop is just around the corner...!

BottleDog is coming!

We've been teasing you long enough with news of a BrewDog bottle shop, but we can officially announce our plans right here, right now. Ready? Ok, here goes...!

bottlesjan2_620

BrewDog's first Bottle shop, BottleDog, will open at the end of April 2014 on Gray's Inn Road near King's Cross in London. The concept for this shop is essentially the Diagon Alley of craft beer, minus the magic wands and trained owls. It'll stock everything a craft beer lover could dream of; from BrewDog bottled beers and growler fills to amazing new beers from International breweries, to homebrewing equipment and great glassware to enjoy your purchases in, this place will have it all.

We are also designing the shop to be a place to come and sit down and sample a few things before making any decisions. There'll be books about beer and food and anything else that might be of interest on a table in the centre of the store, with seating and wise, knowledgeable, Cicerone-trained staff on hand to advise and chat with.

This venue will be the first of many and Aberdeen, Glasgow and Manchester are in our sights once we've got London off the ground.

Stay tuned for more accurate launch dates, but in the mean time, I think the most important question is what breweries' beers should we get in for the grand opening?

No bottle shops in Edinburgh? Oh pl-eeeaaseee! I can think of 4 fantastic shops and 5 decent shops in the city. Apart from the Royal mile I cant think of an area within the city centre that is more than 20 minutes walk from a great selection of beer. Oh heres a list http://www.ratebeer.com/Places/FindPlacesByCity.asp?CountryID=241&StateID=0&City=edinburgh&Show=3

If the Aberdeen store could be right at the train station that would be super handy thanks.

Will only BrewDog growlers be filled, or will you accept any growler?

alisongourlay 19th February, 2014 3:43pm
Brilliant location as usually stay in hotel around there when in London. How about opening a bottledog in Durham, we could do with a nice craft beer shop.

List of Brewmeister beers that arent terrible:*space left intentionally blank*
brigandaca 19th February, 2014 1:30pm
In London, Ive been impressed by Brixton Beer, Kernel and Redchurch Brewery.
Pete H., Nottm 19th February, 2014 1:20pm
If the first shop is in London village, then you HAVE to stock beer from The Kernel. All their bottles I have tried have been fantastic.Others to consider - Magic Rock, Buxton, Marble, Oakham, but definately NOT Castle Rock.
Theydon_Bois 19th February, 2014 1:14pm
Couldnt you have opened it on a railway station concourse ? Dont you know how much beer time will be lost walking down the Grays Inn Road? Its not easy keeping up with beer in London you know !
Alexander Davis 19th February, 2014 1:12pm
The Kernel, and De Molen are musts! Kings of brewing for me at the moment.
BK 19th February, 2014 1:11pm
Russian River and The Alchemist!

We need all of the Three Floyds. And Jester King. And Cigar City.
RickW 19th February, 2014 12:52pm
Are you going to be stocking home brew ingredients too or just the kit? some great all grain mix (in 1 Gallon & 5 Gallon) kits would be amazing - After BottleDog - why not HomeDog?
Kaizo 19th February, 2014 12:48pm
Russian River, Stone, Mikkeller, Three Floyds, Goose Island, AleSmith, Bells, Hair of the Dog, Deschutes, Alchemist, Firestone Walker! I could go on forever!
dynamiteninja 19th February, 2014 12:40pm
+1 on the Brewmeister or Tetleys Smooth Flow
gourlayi 19th February, 2014 12:39pm
Nice, hopefully its near the travel lodge on grays road. Booked in there for a stay in london later in the year so ill be able to have a growler filled before heading for the train.

If you could get Vortex by Fort George Brewery I will sweep your floors and be a caged novelty for your customers to throw nuts at
jiggles 19th February, 2014 12:28pm
What about Edinburgh? :(
Andy P 19th February, 2014 12:27pm
If you can get the small but fine selection of beers from Four Pines Brewery Australia, youd be the first in Europe I think.
McMar 19th February, 2014 12:25pm
Why not in Edinburgh guys?We need more beer shops here and especially homebrew stores (theres only one, and it is bloody expensive)!!!
BrewMeister? Really? 19th February, 2014 12:19pm
