Few craft breweries think as big as BrewDog and no craft brewing organization in the world has their current scale and reach. And now they’ve plans to open eleven new BrewDog Bars in some of the world’s most exciting cities in 2019.
Here’s the deal…
To understand the intrinsic importance of BrewDog’s UK and international bar network, one only has to look to the traditional pub and brewery distribution system in the United Kingdom, where large pub chains serve as outlets for the company sanctioned beer that is served chain wide.
Some breweries such Fuller’s have opted to cut out the middleman and build their own network of pubs that cater almost exclusively to their brand…And over the years BrewDog has been building a national and international network of bars with a similar model.
In 2010 BrewDog threw open the doors to their first UK bar in Aberdeen Scotland and they never looked back. The last time we counted the company had opened 40 BrewDog Bars in the UK including a new hub in London’s financial district and their first airport bar ever in Edinburgh, Scotland.
And in addition to having acquired the enormously successful Draft House craft beer chain, which operates 14 bar’s across London and in England’s southeast in 2018, BrewDog has announced plans to open nine new UK bars this year…
But it’s the company’s international plans in some of the world’s most exciting cities that we find most intriguing…
And here are some of the exciting international cities where BrewDog will be opening new bars in 2019…
