Beer enthusiasts who have dreamed of a safe haven where they can relish and bathe in beer now have a destination to visit: Columbus, Ohio. Yes, Ohio's capital will soon be home to a craft beer-themed hotel called DogHouse. Forget Disneyland — you need to come here instead.
Slated to open its doors at the end of 2018, the craft beer hotel will offer its customers some truly unique experiences. While the DogHouse is not the only beer-centric hotel in the country — Delaware has the Dogfish Inn and California has Stone Brewing's new hotel arriving early next year — it does stand apart for a handful of reasons.
For one, every room in the hotel will have IPA on tap and in-shower fridges for those who want to enjoy a beer in their shower. There are also beer-infused three-course meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) available at the hotel.
It's the "Luxury Suite," however, that offers the most interesting amenity: a hot tub filled with the Scottish brewery's hoppy Punk IPA. If it sounds gimmicky, then know there may be a functional element to this experience. A beer hair rinse is a DIY wives' tale for getting shinier locks, and some people even vouch for bathing in beer, claiming it is nourishing for the skin.
The brewery is crowdfunding on IndieGoGo for the world's first crowdfunded craft beer hotel — a $6 million project. As of right now the project has raised close to $135,000, which is 179 percent of the goal. If you feel like chipping in on this project, there are still a ton of great rewards left, including a cheaper night's stay at the hotel.
