NOVEMBER was a busy month for Ellon-based brewer and bars group Brewdog, with the launch of three new Scottish bars and a new beer.
The new bars, in Aberdeen, Perth and Edinburgh Airport, bring the company’s estate up to 11 sites in Scotland, with 39 across the UK and 78 worldwide.
The Aberdeen venue, located in the Union Square shopping centre, is Brewdog’s third in its home city. With a capacity of 150 people, it serves food and a range of craft beers from 20 taps.
The new Perth bar, meanwhile, is the company’s smallest venue to date, with a capacity of just 43 people.
The outlet, on George Street, offers the Brewdog pizza menu as well as craft beer from 14 taps.
The Edinburgh Airport bar opens at 4am every day and closes after the last flight of the day has departed.
The initial food offer will be limited to the group’s breakfast and salad menus, as well as a hot sandwich menu, which can be ordered to take away.
“This is a Brewdog bar like no other,” said Brewdog co-founder, James Watt.
“Not only can we introduce more beer drinkers to the power of craft beer than ever before, but we can turn the traditional airport beer experience, into a vibrant hub of excitement and craft beer passion.”
And Brewdog’s latest beer, Subwoofer IPA, has been influenced by the company’s own name.
The beer, which is alcohol and hop-free, is designed specifically for dogs.
