About BrewDog

We were bored of the industrially brewed lagers and stuffy ales that dominate the UK market. We decided the best way to fix this undesirable predicament was to brew our own beers. Consequently in April 2007 BrewDog was born.Both only 24 at the time, we leased a building, got some scary bank loans, spent all our money on stainless steel and started making some hardcore beers.

The 27 Club: BrewDog opens new bar in Leicester bringing total count to 27

BrewDog opens craft beer hub in Leicester as craft beer revolution continues to thrive 

  • BrewDog, Scotland’s largest independent brewery claimed another milestone in the craft beer revolution today with the launch of BrewDog Leicester.
  • Located at 8 Friar Lane, Leicester, LE1 5RA, the new bar is the brewery’s 19th UK site and brings the total global bar count to 27.
  • BrewDog Leicester is the second bar to be launched by the maverick brewery this year, following the launch of BrewDog Barcelona in February.
  • Located just a stone’s throw away from King Richard III’s resting place, BrewDog Leicester will feature a curved bar and cinema-style draft board, as well as vintage arcade games and pinball machines.
  • The bar has capacity for 170 people and will serve 20 beers on tap as well as a comprehensive menu including rye bread sandwiches, burgers, hotdogs and ribs.
  • The new bar will also be the first BrewDog bar to open for breakfast at weekends, serving American style classics with a BrewDog twist, such as 5AM Red Ale cured bacon with rye bread, and eggy bread with maple syrup.
  • As is traditional in every BrewDog bar, the brewery will give a nod to its host city, serving a selection of craft beers from the local area, as well as renowned breweries from around the world.
  • Regular tasting and “Meet the Brewer” events will also be held in the bar in a purpose built tasting room, allowing customers the chance to meet some of the most innovative brewers from the UK and around the world.

BrewDog co-founder James Watt commented:“Leicester is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city and we’re thrilled to be finally setting up a BrewDog home there. The craft beer fans in Leicester have been crying out for a BrewDog bar for years and we’ve responded with a truly outstanding craft beer hub. With BrewDog bars in Nottingham and Birmingham, and now Leicester, we have well and truly put our stamp on the Midlands.”

“We want this bar to serve as an inspiration to microbrewers, home brewers and craft beer drinkers in the region. The passion for great craft beer has taken firm roots in the symbolic heart of England and continues to thrive.”

“The craft beer revolution is far from over. It grows stronger by the day, building an awesome global community that celebrates quality and diversity, and unites against those insipid, tasteless monolithic liquids disgracefully labelled ‘beer.’ Vive le Revolution!
