The next stop in BrewDog's burgeoning empire is likely to be Perth, Scotland, where the Scottish craft brewer plans to open a venue later this year.

Known for its bespoke beers such as its Punk IPA and Dead Pony Club, Brewdog submitted plans to open a venue on the site of the former Caffè Canto Bistro on George Street, Perth, and as always it will be dog friendly.

'Our mission is to make everyone as passionate about craft beer as we are,' said a BrewDog spokesperson. 'Wherever we have fans and where we want to change the approach to craft beer is initially how we decide to open a new bar and we want to expand our range across Scotland as well.'

Having opened its first bar in 2010 in its hometown of Aberdeen, BrewDog opened its 37th UK bar in Milton Keynes last week, bringing its worldwide tally to 70. It is also looking to open venues in Glasgow Hopworks, Edinburgh Airport, Reykjavik and Itaewon, South Korea, in the near future.

In April, BrewDog opened its sour beer facility Overworks, with the aim of taking the category mainstream, and the month prior it acquired the Draft House chain for an undisclosed sum, which it intends to keep as a separate entity.
