BrewDog set to open mini-hotel chain Kennels



14 November 2019

Scotland’s BrewDog is taking bookings for the first in a series of small, city centre hotels called BrewDog Kennels.

Bookings are open for Aberdeen Kennel, which along with Columbus in the US, will be the first in a string of planned sites. Further openings are expected in Paris, Manchester, Berlin and London.

Rooms at the Aberdeen Kennel start at £75 per night and the company’s shareholders will qualify for discounts.

BrewDog Kennels will feature shower beers, record players, guitars and rental bikes. The hotels also welcome dogs.

BrewDog co-founder James Watt said: ‘We firmly believe that where you stay in a new city should be your home from home, so have brought the spirit of our DogHouse Hotel and its reverence for great beer to a new series of mini-hotels.’

Visitors to the Aberdeen Kennel can also book a place at ‘Beer School’ at the downstairs Castlegate bar, or a guided visit to the brewery in nearby Ellon.

‘Aberdeen is an incredible place for craft beer so we have upped the ante with our own take on accommodation,’ added Watt. ‘To paraphrase the song; you can check out but you may never want to leave.’
