Craft beer and barbecue food at BrewDog’s second Glasgow bar

Doghouse Glasgow

Craft beer and barbecue food have come together alongside a bottle shop at BrewDog’s second bar in Glasgow.

BrewDog, based in Aberdeenshire, launched DogHouse in Hutcheson Street in the Merchant City area at the weekend after the success of its BrewDog bar in Argyle Street in the city’s West End.

The new bar specialises in barbecue classics such as Lexington-style pulled pork, Texas-style dry rubbed beef brisket, hot gut smoked links and burnt ends – alongside being another haven for craft beer both for drinking in the bar and for taking away in the bottle shop.

It offers 25 draught beers at the bar, pouring guest beers from around the world alongside BrewDog headliners and small-batch offerings. In the shop, people can choose from 250 beers available in bottles from breweries across the UK and internationally.

It has a capacity of 195, with outside seating for up to 40, and also offers specialty coffees and a selection of board games. It is open seven days a week from 10am to midnight.

BrewDog co-founder James Watt said: “DogHouse brings together all the best ways to experience awesome beer, in a bar, with amazing food, or to take home. It’s an off-the-chain food destination with some insane barbecue cuisine, 25 taps of amazing beer, and a beer mecca bottle shop thrown into the mix – it’s a trailblazing new venue in our home country.

Glasgow has an awesome vibe and a track record of epic taste in craft beer. We couldn’t be more excited to be opening this mega BrewDog in Scotland’s biggest city.”

The opening follows the launch of BrewDog’s fourth round of crowd-funding through the Equity for Punks scheme. It has raised more than £17million to date, funding expansion of the BrewDog brewery, new bar openings across the globe, including the upcoming BrewDog bars in Soho in London and Berlin – its first in Germany. Further plans include a craft beer distillery and a craft beer hotel.

“The rise of craft beer in the UK has been stratospheric, and this triple-threat venue marks a whole new era for beer, which appeared a fairly desolate landscape when we first launched in 2007,” James added.

“Savvy beer fans know when something has been created with passion and expertise, and that’s why so many people have invested in our brewery.

“Our 40,000-strong army of shareholders has allowed us to keep bringing exquisite beer to craft beer crusaders, offering it in new, innovative and alternative ways that defy the norm and reject tired, traditional concepts of what a bar should be.”
