UK-based brewery, BrewDog, has completed its reward-based crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo and secured $324,072 from 2158 backers for its DogHouse homeland sour beer facility, which will be located at the brewery’s Ohio site.
As previously reported, BrewDog stated the DogHouse is the first crowdfunded craft beer hotel and will be attached to the sour beer facility. This new hotel will feature include beer themed rooms, punk jacuzzi, shower beer fridges, a spa that will have malted barley messages and hop face masks. The BrewDog team stated:
“We want to create the top craft beer destination on the planet. Our brewery in Ellon, Scotland has become a destination for craft beer fans across Europe, and we want to build an even more amazing beer destination stateside. With The DogHouse focused on amazing craft beer from BrewDog and our favourite breweries worldwide, we’re creating the ideal environment in which to immerse yourself in the ultimate beery weekend.”
The brewery explained that the new sour beer facility would provide an opportunity to experiment and innovate the “weirdest” and most wonderful styles of beer:
“By building a dedicated sour beer facility on site at our brewery in Columbus, Ohio, we’re setting ourselves up to start building some insane recipes without impacting on our day-to-day brewing.”
