“In the last 10 years we’ve turned the craft beer scene on its head and are once again demonstrating the power of beer.

“As always, our army of Punks fuels every mission and the DogHouse is just a small part of the epic journey we’re making together.

“From welcome pints of Punk, to in-shower beer fridges; the DogHouse is our gift to the passionate and dedicated army of beer fans that have supported us every step of the way.

“We are nothing without our community and this hotel celebrates that... and where better to do it than in one of the UK’s greatest cities?
