BrewDog continues expansion with new bar in Liverpool

Scottish independent brewery BrewDog has opened its much-anticipated new beer bar in Liverpool – the 10th new opening for the group this year.

The company claims that the new bar that opened yesterday in Manolis Yard, Colquitt Street, will quite simply “change the face of beer in the region”.

BrewDog co-founder James Watt said: “Liverpool has an awesome heritage of carving its own path, disregarding the homogeny of the mainstream, as well as an historic connection to beer. Some of the earliest IPAs bound for India departed British shores from the ports of Merseyside, so this new bar is something of a craft beer homecoming.

“The new bar is at the heart of one of Liverpool’s most exciting districts, and we will be adding to the existing array of cool bars and venues in the area, which have already demonstrated the changing tide of craft beer in the city.”

The new Liverpool bar has capacity for 300 people and will feature 30 beers on tap from renowned breweries from all over the globe, including Mikkeller, Flying Dog, Evil Twin, Mad Hatter and Stone.

It features a “press for beer” button at each booth to alert bar staff when they need service. The interior was designed by Michaelis Boyd which has worked on many of BrewDog’s other bars.

Bartenders have all been trained to provide expertise on the range of beers, including certification as qualified Beer Servers through the Cicerone beer sommelier programme.

Regular “Meet the brewer” events will provide customers with face time with some of the most creative brewers the world has to offer, and BrewDog staff will also provide brew sessions and beer schools for customers to learn more about craft beer and the brewing process.

James continued: “BrewDog Liverpool is a key bolt hole for the craft beer revolution. There is a craft beer enlightenment taking place across the UK, and far from simply selling beer to those looking for it, we see our bars as the frontline in making everyone as passionate about craft beer as we are.”

The new Liverpool bar follows openings in Sheffield, Dundee, Cardiff, Ellon in Aberdeenshire and Clapham Junction, south London, as well as overseas openings in São Paulo, Tokyo, Gothenburg and Florence.

The brewery is already looking at a second bar location in Glasgow as well as Brighton. It also has plans to expand its international division with bars in Rome, Bologna, Helsinki and Berlin in the near future.
