Scotland’s largest independent brewer BrewDog has opened its first ever airport bar at Edinburgh Airport. The Aberdeenshire-based brewery will offer passengers a wide range of beers from its own collection as well as carefully curated craft brews from around the world.
Travelers will also benefit from a specially developed breakfast and lunch menu which features loaded hot sandwiches, salads and all-day breakfast.
The bar will be situated in the new terminal expansion and will be operated by TRG Concessions in an exclusive franchise partnership with BrewDog.
Gordon Dewar, chief executive of Edinburgh Airport, said, “We’ve been working extremely hard to improve the facilities across the airport and this is the latest stage in that project as we deliver a global brand for passengers.
“A world first, it’s brilliant to welcome BrewDog to Scotland’s busiest airport and give passengers from near and far the option of sampling one of the country’s own brands, providing a real taste of Scotland.”
James Watt, co-founder, BrewDog, said, “This is a BrewDog bar like no other. Not only can we introduce more beer drinkers to the power of craft beer than ever before, but we can turn the traditional airport beer experience, into a vibrant hub of excitement and craft beer passion.
“We think of Edinburgh as a second home having experienced the city’s craft beer scene growing into a lively, impassioned hub of innovation and flavor. BrewDog Edinburgh Airport is our third in the city and will serve as a gateway for craft beer to the millions of travelers that pass through each year.”
Nick Ayerst, managing director of TRG Concessions, said, “We are delighted to open 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.”
