If you love beer and travel — and combine your two passions whenever possible — your dreams are all coming true.
That's because a craft beer hotel seeking crowd-funding has just officially gotten the green light. Scottish brewer BrewDog has announced plans to build the world’s first crowd-funded craft beer hotel in Columbus, Ohio, where the company is also slated to open its first international brewery later this year.
The hotel is cheekily called The DogHouse, and it will offer over-the-top services and amenities for fans of the sudsy stuff: Think beer-based spa treatments, and a craft beer tap in every room serving the brewery’s flagship beer, Punk IPA. Oh, and (wait for it) an in-shower beer fridge so you don't have to take time out from your swigging to scrub.
Guests staying in the property's luxury suite will also get a hot tub filled with Punk IPA. (And perhaps... a bit of something else less appetizing?)
The DogHouse will also serve three-course breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, all infused and paired with artisanal craft beers.
The project took in $75,000 in just the first 30 days (and by now it's up over $126,000), fast tracking the plans. Backers of the Indiegogo campaign score free nights at The DogHouse and also exclusively secure the first five releases from the sour beer facility.
“Beer buffs around the world have been crying out for a beer hotel since we first floated the idea on social media, so we’re going to kick-start the most ambitious project we’ve ever planned, all with the backing of our global community of beer fans,” said BrewDog co-founder and C.E.O. James Watt in a statement. "Every single part of your stay at The DogHouse will be absolutely dominated by hops, malt, and incredible beer. Forget Disneyland — this is the new happiest place on earth."
