BrewDog, the Scottish brewer and pub operator, has been granted a licence for a new bar in Cardiff as it opens its third venue overseas, in Tokyo.

The 120-capacity Tokyo venue is located in the Roppongi district of the city. It 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, there are plans to develop a full beer-matched tasting menu.

BrewDog Tokyo is the third international bar to be opened by BrewDog, having launched a bar in São Paulo at the end of January this year, and Stockholm in June 2013.

Having secured a licence in Cardiff, BrewDog intends to open in the city in April. Its next UK opening will be in Sheffield later this month.

BrewDog recently secured a licence for a new bar in Liverpool, which is scheduled to open next month.
