Edinburgh to open Scottish brewer BrewDog's first airport bar

Scotland’s largest independent brewer is to make Edinburgh Airport home to its first ever airport bar.

BrewDog will open its doors this summer, offering passengers 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.”

BrewDog's head of retail partnerships, Graeme Hamilton, 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."
