Plans for Australia’s First Craft Beer Hotel

Craft beer brand, BrewDog, is planning to open Australia's first beer hotel to be located in inner-Brisbane.

The plan is a part of the company's expansion strategy which also includes launching several new sites across Australia, and entering the New Zealand market in two years.

The hotel will be called The DogHouse Brisbane, and will be an extension of the existing brewery; the DogTap, in Murarrie.

The DogHouse will be pet friendly and will be equipped with shower beer fridges and hotel-room draft beer taps filled with freshly-brewed IPA.

Soaps and body washes will also have the key ingredient of beer, and of course, the minibar will be loaded with craft beers from across the globe.

The Brisbane hotel will be based on the model of BrewDog's first craft-beer hotel, located in Columbus, Ohio. The US hotel has 32 beer-themed rooms, including eight deluxe suites overlooking the brewery's large beer barrels. Continental breakfast will be paired with beer, multiple bars and restaurant.

The Brisbane hotel is expected to open mid-2022.
