Overview

Every brewery deserves a tap room, and DogTap serves up the freshest BrewDog beer you can possibly imagine - made only metres away! With ten taps, our onsite bar opened in 2014, and sits in the shadow of our giant external fermenters, separated from the brewkit by a single glass door. What better way to enjoy BrewDog beer than in the place it was created; where you can smell the hops emanating from your glass and the brewery at the same time? But, wait there's more... The DogWalk Brewery Tour! The DogWalk not only takes in the original brewhouse from our previous tour but now includes our epic new expanded site 3 brewhouse, Lone Wolf distillery, the mind blowingly spacious warehouse, awesome packaging lines and even a cheeky little venture through the HQ offices. All things that have been mysterious to the general public and rarely seen.....until now! Tours should only be available as follows: Monday - Friday at 4pm and 6pm. Saturday & Sunday at 12 pm, 2 pm and 4 pm Pricing for our brewery tours are £15 per person and last approx 90mins with 4 amazing interactive tastings along the way.

I thought Gary did a great job of telling us about the company, culture, beer brewing process, and showing their facility. The new Overwork Brewery looks awesome!

there are three reasonable hotels in Ellon; New Inn, Station Hotel and Buchan. If you say you are a friend of Fast Eddie from Union Lane Garage you should get a deal. 😉😁😂
