Small-batch, experiential brews from BrewDog's nanobrewery
At BrewDog, the spirit of homebrew is in our DNA. It was how we started, as a company, and it still fires our imagination to this day.
One of the many things we love about homebrewing is it gives anyone the chance to create incredible beers on the smallest of scales. When you have skill and a passion for it, size doesn’t matter. Enter: nanodog.
WTF is a nanodog?
Buckle up. It's time for a history lesson.
Let’s go back to 2019 where it all started. nanodog was the brainchild of Nick Manos. At the time, he was a member of the DogTap Columbus crew and ran the resident homebrew club.
He approached us with a desire to replicate BrewDog’s spirit in miniature with a series of small-batch beers poured at monthly events. Nick duly brewed up a cryo-hopped NEIPA and a double chocolate milk stout with strawberry, vanilla, banana and toasted walnuts.
Both beers sold out in 90 minutes.
Nick is now head of nanodog, the nanobrewery is operating on the smallest kit within BrewDog's brewery, located right outside of Columbus, Ohio.
He's known for his super-exclusive, high-intensity small-batch brews and experimenting with new techniques and straight up bizarre ingredients (Apparently we're putting phyllo dough in beer now? And, guess what? It's damn good.)
You can always spot a nanodog creation on tap at BrewDog bars nationwide or on the online shop.

A 11% ABV Imperial Pastry Stout brewed in collaboration with Hoof Hearted Brewing. Aromas of fresh bananas and rich chocolate dominate the nose, with hints of vanilla and caramel in the background One banana? What could it cost, $10?
One Million Dog
A 7.5% ABV New England IPA brewed in collaboration with CLAG Brewing. We went all in on hop saturation with this one. The result? A very special, very fruity, very soft IPA that is worth at least one million dog.
A 5.2% ABV Experimental Pilsner brewed with Missing Mountain Brewing. We used New Zealand hops, phantasm & lunar crush yeast. Aromas of floral hops and light malt dominate, with a subtle hint of passion fruit and guava from the beer's unique yeast.
Great Big Baby
A big body 13% ABV Maplewood Aged Barleywine. Brewed with maple sugar and conditioned on maple wood, you can expect waves of caramel, maple, dried fruit and boozy sweetness.
Science is For Everyone
A 7.5% ABV New England IPA brewed with Vermont Tropics Yeast and HBC hops. Full-bodied and juicy, with flavors of ripe mango, pineapple, and grapefruit balanced by a soft bitterness.
