BrewDog is to open the doors to its first airport bar this summer.
Passengers at Edinburgh Airport will soon be offered a range of beers from its Aberdeenshire-based brewery alongside those hand-picked from craft breweries from around the world. Famed for its wide selection of craft beers, it will also serve food and will be homed in the terminal’s brand-new extension, part of an £80 million expansion project.
It’s the first of many establishments expected to open this year at Scotland’s busiest airport, widening choice and variety for the 13.4 million passengers who travel through the terminal every year.
Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport, Gordon Dewar said:
“We’re a modern airport that wants to offer our passengers a taste of modern Scotland, and working with one of the country’s most successful breweries certainly does that.
“BrewDog and Edinburgh Airport are both worldwide names so this is a fantastic partnership and we’re delighted to be the first airport in the world to be home to a BrewDog bar.
“Variety and choice for passengers are at the heart of our strategy and BrewDog adds to the already wide range of facilities we have at Scotland’s busiest airport, and we will continue to expand where we can.”
Graeme Hamilton, Head of Retail Partnerships at BrewDog commented:
“This is an exceptionally exciting new adventure for us as we seek to introduce even more people to the incredible world of craft beer. Airports have always been high on our hit list for extending our bar division, and we’re looking forward to welcoming Edinburgh’s travellers to our first ever airport venue.
“Craft beer is an incredibly inclusive scene, with some amazing, eclectic breweries appearing every day around the world. Our international approach to sourcing brilliant beer matches perfectly with the airport environment where many are looking to explore new cultures and countries. Now you can start that journey with an awesome, boundary-pushing craft beer.”
Managing Director of TRG Concessions, Nick Ayerst said:
“We are delighted to be opening the world’s first BrewDog airport bar in Edinburgh, it seems only right that it should be in the capital city of the company’s home nation and will provide passengers with food, drink and a unique experience that they will be sure to want elsewhere.”
