BrewDog’s latest addition to Central Ohio celebrates its grand opening today, August 25, in New Albany at 97 E. Granville St.

Spanning a whopping 8,600 square feet, the bar and restaurant can seat 300 inside and 288 on its various patios.

Imbibers will find a 24-tap lineup, primarily stocked with BrewDog’s own in addition to a few guest pours. Three separate kegerators are currently reserved for the brewery’s non-alcoholic selections.

There’s wine and liquor, too. Cocktails are built around bases from local company Simple Times Mixers, and feature local spirits.

BrewDog New Albany whips up a new, bigger food menu. Frequenters of other BrewDog bars will recognize some staple dishes, but also find an expanded selection of burgers, tacos, bowls and sides.

While there’s plenty of eating and drinking to be done, the bar also offers all sorts of activities. Inside there’s shuffleboard, pinball and classic board games, outside are giant chess and Jenga.

BrewDog New Albany is the Scotland-based brewery’s fourth location in Central Ohio, including its brewery and hotel in Canal Winchester, bar and Kennels in Short North and bar in Franklinton.

BrewDog New Albany will be open from 11 a.m. – 11 p.m. daily.
