For too long, airport bars have just been places to get the beers in before the gate closes, or a method of coping with the journey ahead. We hate this. If you arrive at the airport to go somewhere amazing, we believe the airport bar should be your perfect launchpad. Everybody at the terminal is on the clock. So why not spend the time wisely? This is a question we ask every time we set foot in an airport.

So we are doing something about it. BrewDog Edinburgh Airport will open this summer.

Scotland’s busiest airport is expanding into a new extension, reaching out from the east end of the airside terminal. And we can announce today that one of those units will be ours; BrewDog Edinburgh Airport will be taking off very soon. We believe airport bars should serve amazing beer, in the right way, in a location you want to be in rather than one you head to as the only resort.

We love the fact that many US regional airports have small-scale brewery taps from local breweries for those who are passing through and love craft beer. We are committed to doing likewise for the people who travel through Edinburgh, with more airport BrewDog bars pencilled into the plans for the future. Edinburgh is the first arrival, but one we hope will be joined by others.

As well as super-fresh BrewDog craft beer, BrewDog Edinburgh Airport will also be serving up a range of food for those about to depart to places new, so make sure you pack those appetites. We are looking to move away from stilted atmospheres and baffling carpets and bring an airport bar in our house style that welcomes everyone who loves great beer, great food and amazing service.

We hope to be open in the summer of this year, which can’t come soon enough for the millions of busy travellers who pass through Edinburgh airport every year. For many of them, turning up at the terminal is the start of the holiday. Or it marks the last chance to relax before sweating that business trip or wedging into a long-haul flight.

BrewDog Edinburgh Airport will be a new terminal go-to.

Be sure and leave suggestions in the comments about which airport we should open up in next!

This is great news since this is where my flights often start!! London Heathrow and Gatwick Airport are the worlds gateways and surely has to be the next UK airport for Brewdog!!

Such a great idea! Sick of settling for Wetherspoon beers.
Stephen Rush 29.03.2018 @ 4:59pm
Oh thank Christ. Heathrow T5 please. And if you can do a pop-up in the BA lounge while you're there that would be lovely please.
Jamie, Swansea 14.03.2018 @ 9:45am
From one celt to another.... more places in Wales.... please! And to start off, Cardiff Airport!
Steven R 14.03.2018 @ 8:12am
Edinburgh Airport Fantastic summer cant come quick enough
William David R 14.03.2018 @ 4:15am
Any intentions of sticking up airport duty free with Brewdog stock so we can enjoy and share more globally?? ????????
Eddie Eccles 12.03.2018 @ 6:11pm
Liverpool airport would make an excellent choice for a brewdog bar. Alot of history of brewing beer from around this area and Cheshire, we have a good taste for quality ales and beers and would be appropriate to take off with awesome brewdog beer instead of naff lager and weak ales.
Elin 12.03.2018 @ 10:45am
Copenhagen please!
Lara 10.03.2018 @ 5:24pm
Glasgow! The old-mannish style pubs there are getting tiring for me now and a solid imperial stout or hoppy IPA is just what I need to get me through flights!
Bruce 08.03.2018 @ 10:20pm
Great news! From looking at the pictures though, can we have more comfy seats, and less high school style chairs, please?
Bob 08.03.2018 @ 6:31pm
Get involved in the expansion of Cardiff Airport.
Seemingly it is Qatar Airways which is going to take over to push the development. This seems a no brained as this will assist your growth world wide as international travellers arrive in the diff
anonymous 08.03.2018 @ 5:32pm
Awesome, I better replace my lost passport now.
Derek P 08.03.2018 @ 4:40pm
Big expansion at Luton just now too...that would be both ends of my regular journey sorted.

On second thoughts...
Luuk 08.03.2018 @ 9:56am
Well Schiphol Amsterdam airport obviously.
yorkshireman 07.03.2018 @ 7:23pm

Faro Airport, Portugal
Michael A 07.03.2018 @ 5:14pm
Get into Manchester please. Lots of Asian passengers will help the revolution go east.
Jamie 07.03.2018 @ 5:02pm
Luton Airport! Also undergoing massive growth. Like Luton itself, the airport needs a good place to drink!!
Beer-io 07.03.2018 @ 4:25pm
Can see a few flights being missed now, by people not wanting to leave this bar.
Ross Buchan 07.03.2018 @ 3:19pm
I will now make Edinburgh my airport of choice to fly from.
DOUG 07.03.2018 @ 2:39pm
Such great news. Hope you’ll have some good beers from the local breweries too!
BrewDog Rich 07.03.2018 @ 1:00pm

BeerDude 07.03.2018 @ 12:17pm
Looks great, but more seats at the bar please - it's an airport staple!
Delboy 07.03.2018 @ 10:45am
At last, proper beer and not that mass produced tat served up by the usual outlets. Will need to fly home more often now!!
Maxwell 07.03.2018 @ 9:09am
