As if craft beer lovers needed another reason to travel to BrewDog's newly-opened taproom and brewery in Columbus, Ohio, the beloved Scottish craft brewery has announced plans for a craft beer-themed hotel known as the DogHouse Hotel.
The ambitious project aims to pay homage to craft beer and its passionate fans at every turn.
For example, guests will find beer-based shampoos and shower gels in the bathroom and their very own beer tap in the bedroom. What's more, the hotel would run adjacent to BrewDog's sour beer production facility.
BrewDog co-founder James Watt detailed some of the other expected highlights in a statement.
"The rooms in The DogHouse will be reminiscent of our most popular beers, with rooms overlooking the foeders in our new sour beer facility, and we’ll have hop-infused face masks – tailored to the hops in your favourite beers – malted barley massages plus, possibly my favorite part, a fridge in your en suite so you’re never more than arm’s length from a chilled can of Punk IPA," said Watt.
Guests will even have the chance to relax in a hot tub filled with BrewDog's signature Punk IPA.

The hotel, which is expected to cost $6 million, according to the Columbus Dispatch, is targeting a September 2018 opening.
BrewDog established a crowd-funding campaign for the new hotel and sour beer facility on Indiegogo with a goal of raising $75,000. As of Friday afternoon, the project has raised more than $66,000.
The company is providing potential backers with additional incentive to contribute by promising them exclusive benefits, including the ability to try the first five releases from the sour beer brewery before anyone else.
On the West Coast, Stone Brewing Co. has announced plans for a $26 million hotel beside its World Bistro & Gardens, while Delaware's Dogfish Head Brewery has already opened the 16-room Dogfish Inn in Lewes.
