If you’ve ever visited a brewery, sipped on some amazing craft beer and thought to yourself, “Man, I wish could live here,” your wish has come true! The Dog House, in Columbus, Ohio is a 32-room hotel that is also a brewery. Each room comes complete with beer taps, not to mention a fully-stocked mini-fridge in the shower. They even have a full spa that uses beer-infused products.
The Dog House started as a crowdfunding campaign launched by the Scottish beer company BrewDog. It only took them 17 months to get the necessary funding to open the world’s first craft beer hotel.
James Watt, BrewDog’s CEO and co-founder, said the following about the opening of the hotel:
“From welcome pints of Punk IPA and malt massages to brewery views and shower beers, this will be the world’s first and only fully immersive craft beer experience from check in to check out.”
The hotel opened on August 27th, and all of the guests who entered the lobby were greeted by a bartender who dished out complimentary drinks.
The lobby features more than the typical hotel décor like comfy couches and free newspapers. The lobby at The Dog House also has tables set up where guests can engage in a friendly game of beer pong. The main attraction, though, is the 6,000 square-foot interactive beer museum, available for both guests and visitors.
There are 32 different rooms at the hotel, each one containing the aforementioned mini-fridge stocked with beer and the ability to purchase seasonal BrewDog selections on tap. Sadly, the showers only provide actual water, not beer, but the soap is made using craft beer! The linens on the beds are top notch and should you take a little too much advantage of the in-room taps, you can conquer the morning with some help from Stauf’s Coffee Roasters, complimentary in each room. Eight of the rooms are luxury suites, featuring custom artwork and unique theming.
The Dog House is also an excellent place for meetings. Conducting your meeting or conference inside of a functioning brewery is certainly more unique than your standard Holiday Inn conference room!
