Scotland-based brewery BrewDog knows that beer business is booming stateside and, as of noon today, has officially joined the ranks of breweries open, brewing, and offering a full-pour taproom in the United States.
DogTap Columbus (which is actually located in nearby Canal Winchester) offers a dozen beers on tap as well as wine, liquor, soda, and freshly roasted coffee.
“It is inspirational, energising and a bastion of creativity,” the company wrote about the United States beer scene. “And now in the biggest project over the ten-year history of BrewDog, we have arrived to play our own small part in it. We have finally touched down and are ready to rock and roll.”
While the brewery ramps up production at their newest location, BrewDog has shipped beer in beer fresh from their kegging line in Scotland. Among the beers currently on tap are Dead Pony Club, 5AM Saint, Jet Black Heart, Elvis Juice, Cocoa Psycho, and their flagship Punk IPA.
The taproom is adorned with shuffleboard and pinball machines and features “a craft beer restaurant serving up freshly-cooked-to-order burgers, salads, pizzas, awesome bar bites and sharing boards.”

The DogTap plans to have 24 beers on tap “very soon.” And in case you’re wondering, they’re hiring in a variety of positions, which is especially exciting if you happen to be a beer-loving dog owner looking for work in the area.
