IPA Hot Tubbing & A Mini-Bar In The Shower? We Love This Hotel.

Taryn's Wreckreation Guide: The DogHouse

March 5, 2018

I first learned of BrewDog nearly 10 years ago when I stumbled upon what was the world's most insane beer at the time, their Tactical Nuclear Penguin, clocking in at 32% ABV. This uber-imperial stout set a new world record as the strongest beer ever made. Now, the Scotland-based brewery is hard at work on another first - the world’s first crowdfunded craft beer hotel.


BrewDog is putting down some roots in the U.S., with brewery opening in Columbus, Ohio very soon. Attached to this brewery will be a 50-room hotel called The DogHouse, and as you can imagine, the amenities are a craft beer lover's dream come true. 


To start, there will be a tap in every guest room where you can pour yourself a pint of the brewery's flagship beer - Punk IPA. On top of that, you can take a "power-shower" thanks to the mini-bar located in the shower. If you're looking for the ultimate in relaxation during your stay, the spa at The DogHouse will be using beer for various treatments and product lines, and in the luxury suite, you'll find a hot tub bubbling with IPA. Each meal will incorporate beer pairings, plus hotel guests will also get to try limited-release and limited-edition beers from BrewDog's brew house next door.


The goal of the campaign is $75,000, and a $150 pledge will get you an overnight stay at The DogHouse!


As a craft beer fanatic myself, this is without a doubt one of the coolest concepts I've ever heard of, and I wish BrewDog great success in this new venture. Who knows, maybe this project will be so well received that it's replicated closer to the PNW! But for now, I'm ready to book my trip to Columbus! 


Happy Adventuring,
