UK brewpub giant BrewDog is now open at the Stove Works complex across from Krog Street Market in Atlanta.

This latest addition to what’s been dubbed “the Krog District” sits beside the Eastside Beltline trail and features 28 taps with both local and BrewDog beers on draft, a beer school, indoor fire pits, a wide range of seating options inside, and a dog-friendly covered patio. Expect standard pub fare served on the menu at BrewDog, including several burgers, loaded Buffalo fries, pizza, tacos, and wings. Vegan and vegetarian dishes are also available, along with a Hoppy Meal consisting of a burger and fries with the option to add a pint of beer.

BrewDog is part of an ongoing redevelopment project currently underway at the Stove Works by Charlotte-based Asana Partners, which includes a new four-story complex and parking deck behind Krog Street Market.

Founded in Fraserburgh, Scotland, in 2007 by James Watt and Martin Dickie, BrewDog features locations and hotels throughout the UK, Germany, Australia, and the United States in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Indiana. A location is slated to open on the Las Vegas strip later this fall.

But with all its success, BrewDog has also stirred up its fair share of controversy over the years. Most recently in 2021, when hundreds of former employees accused Watt and Dickie of fostering a “culture of fear” and harassment, misrepresenting accomplishments on social media, and claiming the company is eco-friendly while not conducting business accordingly. BrewDog was accused of discrimination that same year after a mass firing of women and LGBTQ staff members at a former location in Indianapolis.

Earlier this year, BrewDog announced a new profit-sharing initiative for employees in attempt at transparency and to help cool the ire the company continues to face over its past treatment of staff. At the time of the announcement in May, Watt said he planned to personally donate an additional five percent of the business over the next three years totaling approximately $125 million U.S dollars to salaried employees.
