The world’s first beer hotel will be opening next year, and it’s in Scotland, so you won’t even need travel insurance to get there.

BrewDog is an Aberdeenshire-based brewery, and it has put forward plans to open a hotel named the DogHouse, in Scotland.

James Watt, BrewDog’s co-founder, said, “The DogHouse is our gift to passionate craft beer fans making the pilgrimage to our brewery in Aberdeenshire.

“The idea of opening a beer hotel has always been high on our agenda, and now we are finally able to realise that dream, right here at our HQ.

“This will be the ultimate destination for craft beer fans seeking hops on their holidays.”

The DogHouse will be welcoming its first guests by summer 2019, and each of the 26 rooms will have beer on tap, and a beer fridge built in to the shower.

BrewDog introduced the beer hotel concept last year with its announcement of a hotel in Columbus, Ohio, where the American brewery is based.

However, a recent property acquisition in Ellon, Scotland, has led to plans for the venture to take place in Scotland before the States.

It is expected the American version will now be open in the later half of next year, meaning the one in Scotland will be the world’s first ever beer hotel.

The project will be built on a 3.25 acre site next to the current brewery.

Funding for the hotel and brewery expansion has come from BrewDog’s crowdfunding initiative.

The owners have raised over £53 million since 2009 from over 73,000 craft beer fans, who now can’t wait to stay at the hotel.

If you’re planning on travelling further afield, make sure to get your passport updated before the price goes up in March.
