Fans of the Scottish bar chain BrewDog will be excited this weekend as a sign has appeared outside it’s new Exeter venue.

In October, it was confirmed that the company would be heading to the city after searching for a venue for over a year.

The independent craft brewer was founded in 2007 with the aim to revolutionise the beer industry and redefine British beer-drinking culture.

Today, a sign has been spotted outside a unit at Queen Street Dining, formerly KuPP.

The former Scandinavian restaurant unit, part of Guildhall Shopping Centre, has been empty since July 2018.

BrewDog hinted at their interest in an Exeter based bar back in 2019 as part of their ‘Great BrewDog Hunt 2019’.

Last year, Devon Live reported that BrewDog put out an appeal to the people of Exeter to help them find the perfect location for their bar.

The company said that they offer a finders’ fee and anyone with a suggestion should contact the via their website.

A representative for the business said: “For 2019 if you suggest somewhere we eventually open up in, we’ll sort you a finder’s fee of £5,000 for a Bar or £10,000 for an OutPost.”

After a long search, a venue was found for the company and today a bold BrewDog sign can be spotted outside the Exeter unit.

And it is not just Exeter that will be welcoming a new venue to its city as the company has also confirmed it will be opening a new bar in Plymouth’s £53million The Barcode leisure complex.

The company, famous for its Punk IPA brand, will fill a 4,000sq ft unit at the complex next to Drake Circus Shopping Centre.

Beer lovers are now waiting in anticipation for their craft drinks and substantial meals to boost.

Here’s a run down of the Tier 2 restrictions coming into force which you’ll need to know about when visiting the pub.

Pubs and restaurants

Hospitality venues must shut unless they serve food, and you can only buy alcohol if you are also consuming a “substantial meal”. They must call last orders at 10pm, though people only have to leave at 11pm.

Social contact

You cannot meet anyone socially indoors, unless they are from your household or support bubble . This applies at home or in a public setting. Rule of six limits apply outdoors.

Bubbles

Two households can form a ‘support bubble’ if one of them only has one adult; or a ‘childcare bubble’ if one of them has a child under 13. There’s also now a new exemption which allows a multi-adult household to form a support bubble no matter what, if that household has a child under one, or a child with care needs under five. If you’re in a bubble, you can behave as though you’re all in one household.
