Scottish brewing giant BrewDog is launching the first in a series of new city centre mini-hotels in Aberdeen. 

Dubbed the BrewDog Kennels, each will have between 2-6 rooms and between located above the popular firm’s bars.

Sparked by the desire to give more people the chance to combine a memorable hotel experience with amazing craft beer on their travels, the first have been confirmed that Aberdeen and Columbus will be the first in the series with others following in due course in the city centres of Paris, Manchester, Berlin and London.

The Aberdeenshire-based brewer said that each guest can look forward to a welcome craft beer at check-in and shower beer on offer in every room.

The rooms will also be fully dog-friendly, with dog beds and treats on offer.

The new mini-hotels follows the launch of their DogHouse Hotel in Columbus, which was recently named one of the ‘100 Best places on the Planet’ by TIME Magazine.

BrewDog have pledged to bring the same spirit, touches and focus on beer, food and customer service to their BrewDog Kennels.

BrewDog announced that bookings are now being taken for stays in the Aberdeen Kennels, and can be made here.

Prices for the rooms start from £75 and the brewery’s shareholders, BrewDog’s 125,000 plus Equity Punks, will qualify for a discount on booking.

As the forerunner for the pack, the fully-appointed rooms in the Aberdeen Kennels will also feature the following:

• All rooms featuring French-press coffee, record player/vinyl and a guitar

• Rental bikes available to explore BrewDog’s home city of Aberdeen

• Further room touches include bath robes, a beer book library, board games and sustainably sourced toiletries

The company also announced that bookings can be made from the room for beer-themed excursions and experiences, such as their popular ‘Beer School’ at the downstairs Castlegate bar, or a guided visit to their brewery in nearby Ellon, including travel, a behind the scenes tour and an in-depth beer tasting.

BrewDog co-founder James Watt said: “Our BrewDog Kennels are a revolution
in accommodation, sparked by too much time spent in immediately forgettable hotel rooms.

“We firmly believe that where you stay in a new city should be your home from home, so have brought the spirit of our DogHouse Hotel and its reverence for great beer to a new series of mini-hotels.

“And what better start for the BrewDog Kennels than our home city? Aberdeen is an incredible place for craft beer so  we have upped the ante with our own take on accommodation. To paraphrase the song; you can check out but you may never want to leave.”
