Crowdfunded brewery BrewDog announced on Tuesday an update about its U.S. brewery, which is located near Columbus, Ohio. The Brewery, which is called DogTap, was opened in February.
“Our BrewDog USA team of brewers now brew several times a week and we currently have batches of Ohio-brewed Punk IPA, Dead Pony Club, Elvis Juice and Jet Black Heart in the tanks of our brewhouse and maturing away, ready to be served from the taps of DogTap Columbus! The team of engineers from KHS are also currently on site to commission the canning line so we can begin packaging those beers up for further afield in the US.”
The BrewDog crew also revealed:
“As you’d expect our warehouse is filling up fast with cans, kegs and brewing ingredients and we are just about to key in the massive cold-store in order to have all of our hops and finished beer chilled to lock in all of those aromas and flavours. Our entire procurement team have been working wonders purchasing raw materials and working on planning and scheduling – and for all of our BrewDog USA crew we are close to finalising an epic 11,000sqft office space for them!”
BrewDog added that it is still looking to add more employees to its Columbus team. It has also launched a U.S. online shop so that its supporters in America can have access to the entire range of merchandise. The brewery went on to encourage U.S. fans to join in on its U.S. Equity Punk campaign on BankRoll, which has been live for several months. The brewing company has raised over $30 million in its ongoing crowdfunding offers in the UK, called Equity For Punks. BrewDog also raised £10 million from 2699 investors through its Crowdcube mini bond in December 2016. Most recently, BrewDog raised funds on Indiegogo for its upcoming hotel and sour beer facility.
