BrewDog has announced plans to take its craft beer stateside, having provisionally agreed a deal to build a new 100,000ft2 state-of-the-art craft brewery on a new site in Columbus, Ohio.
In addition to the 100-barrel brew house, the 42 acres of land will house BrewDog’s US offices, a visitor centre, a craft beer restaurant and a taproom.
Once opened, BrewDog will be brewing its full line-up of beers such as Punk IPA, Dead Pony Club and Jackhammer, as well as small batch special brews unique to the US brewery.
BrewDog plans to employ over 100 people at the new location, as well as sending brand ambassadors from its Scottish brewery for secondments at the new site.
In addition to the new US brewery, BrewDog is planning to launch five flagship bars in the country’s craft beer hubs such as the West Coast, the North East and Florida. This new addition to the Brewdog family will be funded through Equity for Punks USA, an American crowdfunding scheme which will launch later this year and give American beer fans the opportunity to invest in BrewDog USA Inc.
