Enjoying continued success, even during the pandemic, the firm recently opened a DogHouse in Manchester, which like the new one in Edinburgh, offers a complimentary beer on arrival as guests check into their room.

They also have fully stocked shower beer fridges and even in-room draft taps where guests can pour their own beers.

Those staying at the new hotels can also get access to games consoles, record players, guitars, and free Brompton bike hire to go exploring.

Fully dog-friendly, the DogHouse even supplies dog beds for any four-legged friends who may be visiting with their owners.

Keen to maintain their commitment to being Carbon Negative, BrewDog recently confirmed that their DogHouse rooms will all be sustainable, with suites kitted out and cleaned using planet friendly consumables.

The brewing firm also confirmed that guests who reuse their towels will also be given free beer and each person will receive a refillable water bottle on arrival.

The reveal is sure to be a big hit with Edinburgh beer fans with the firm already having a number of bars in the capital.

With guest brewers featured each month, members will have a monthly subscription and receive eight cans which will all be brewed in Aberdeen.
