The campaign will also fund a new sour brewing facility onsite, which Watt says will allow BrewDog to experiment with new flavors and techniques. Hotel guests will be able to taste new beers from the sour facility while viewing the oak foeders used as aging vessels from their rooms.
“We love to experiment, so are always on the hunt for new inspirations and styles in all aspects of the beer scene. Many craft breweries are making some incredible, weird, funky beer that riffs off some ancient European beer styles, but reinvented them with awesome, modern twists,” Watt says. “That’s the kind brewing we can get on board with.”
The DogHouse isn’t the only beer hotel planned for the U.S., as California-based Stone Brewing plans to open the Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens about 30 miles north of San Diego in early 2018.
