Independent Scottish craft brewer BrewDog today announced the official opening of a bar in Capital Dock, Ireland.
The beer brand which is part-owned by over 120,000 crowdfunded investors the latest Outpost brewpub features an on-site microbrewery, 'Olympic-sized' shuffleboards, two bars, an outside terrace and heated roof garden.
BrewDog Outpost is the first bar in the Republic and will become the group’s 100th site with locations spanning the globe as far afield as Brisbane, Tokyo, Cincinnati and Berlin.
“BrewDog Outpost Dublin has been a long time coming; we first wanted to open a BrewDog Bar in Dublin over four years ago," said James Watt, captain of BrewDog.
"In the spirit of good things coming to those who wait, we are pushing the boat out and opening only our fourth ever Outpost Brewpub for the people of Ireland. Dublin is one of Europe’s most historic brewing cities so we can’t wait to arrive there and begin some brewing of our own."
BrewDog Outpost Dublin will feature exclusive beers brewed on site alongside brews from its eco-brewery in Aberdeenshire.
"As well as our own craft beer and those we love from across Ireland, we are going to cook up a series of exclusive beers to bolster one of the most exciting craft beer scenes in Europe," Watt added.
"So although Dublin has been on our list of cities for years, we are finally ticking it off in the biggest way possible – and all wrapped up in time for Christmas."
