BrewDog builds bar by Colosseum

Scottish beer producer BrewDog is to open a bar next to one of Europe’s most famous landmarks, the Colosseum.

Situated in Via delle Terme di Tito, the bar is just across the street from the Italian capital’s most famous structure, the Colosseum,

The bar will serve 20 draft lines, half of which will be BrewDog beers, including the flagship Punk IPA, Jack Hammer, This.Is.Lager and Dead Pony Club, and half will be beers from an array of independent craft breweries including Italian breweries Loverbeer and Toccalmatto.

Speaking about the brewer’s first bar in Rome, BrewDog co-founder James Watt said: “BrewDog Rome is a massive landmark launch for us – Italy’s known for its masters of art and architecture, and this bar will provide a showcase for masters in our own artistic arena – brewing.”

From tomorrow, BrewDog will have opened 43 bars worldwide since its first venue was launched in Aberdeen in 2010. BrewDog’s rapid international expansion is in part down to its crowdfunding scheme called Equity for Punks, which has so far raised more than £20m over four rounds – more money taken through crowdfunding than any other business on record

The funds raised will finance further bar openings across the globe, including the brewery’s first bar in Germany, located in Berlin, a bar in Norwich, and a new brewery in Ohio, USA.
