The DogHouse – Opening Soon
Scotland-born brewing juggernaut BrewDog has announced a two-year blueprint for the expansion of its Murarrie beer campus. After making waves with the launch of its humungous brewery and taproom DogTap, the crew has revealed plans for a neighbouring craft-beer hotel called The DogHouse. While an Australian first, The DogHouse Brisbane will be BrewDog’s second beery hotel, following on from its first foray into accommodation with The DogHouse Columbus – which opened at the brewery’s Ohio hub in 2018. The team will break ground and commence construction on a planned four-storey, 30-room hotel on a vacant lot adjacent to the Murarrie headquarters later this year. Once complete, The DogHouse will boast an assortment of rooms and suites, each with beer fridges in the shower, a mini bar stocked to the brim with local brews, beer-infused toiletries, a tap system in your room for keg-fresh pours and potentially a swim-up pool bar. BrewDog is looking to open The DogHouse Brisbane in 2022, and will also look to simultaneously update DogTap with a new mezzanine and function area inside the taproom space as well as an expanded walk-in takeaway shop and larger kitchen. What’s more, soon the brew crew will reveal details on another Brisbane taproom, with an inner-city taproom site soon to be secured.
