Scottish craft brewery BrewDog is continuing its global expansion after launching its first bar in Asia, opening the doors to BrewDog Toyko today.
The new bar, located in the Roppongi district of the city, is the third international bar opened by the maverick brewery, bringing the total estate of bars to 15. A special keg of BrewDog beer was flown from Scotland to the Japanese capital, before it was delivered to the new bar in a Union Jack Mini as part of the grand opening.
The 120 capacity venue will host 20 beer taps showcasing the BrewDog range as well as guest beers from around the world including Mikkeller, 8-Wired, Yeastie Boys, Minoh, and Shiga Kogen. Launching with a bar menu of cheese and meat platters, the team intend to develop a full beer-matched tasting menu.

BrewDog Tokyo is the third international bar to be opened by the brewery, having launched a bar in São Paulo at the end of January this year, and Stockholm in June 2013. The brewery now has 12 bars in the UK, most recently launching its third London site in Shepherd's Bush.
BrewDog plans to open at least six new sites in the next six months, including a new bar in Sheffield later this month. The brewery was also recently granted licences for sites in Cardiff and Liverpool.
