BewDog is growing its UK expansion with the opening of the UK’s first BrewPub at the refurbished Minster Building at the corner of Great Tower Street and Mark Lane, London.
The independent Scottish craft brewer has acquired the 8,500 sq ft space at the neo-gothic landmark, EC3, leased from Ivanhoe? Cambridge.
The pub, which comes complete with its own on-site microbrewery, will create small-batch, seasonal beers that will be exclusive to the new 400 person capacity venue.
BrewDog owns and operates two eco-friendly breweries, one in Ellon in Scotland, and one in the United States in Columbus, Ohio. It already trades from six sites in London, 30 in the UK and 50 worldwide, and is targeting further sites as it continues its global expansion.
"Our mission and ethos is to make the world as passionate about great craft beer as we are, so we are delighted to be launching our first ever BrewPub in the UK, and our first venue in the City of London,” commented bar acquisitions manager Andrew Statham.
“I am delighted to have secured these premises for BrewDog," added Sally French at BNP Paribas Real Estate. "I’m certain their craft beers will bring an exciting new flavour to the City.”
