BrewDog, the Scottish brewer and pub operator, is targeting central and south London, Cambridge, Oxford and Norwich for future bar openings.

The company has also given more details of its plans to open beer shops - these will be called Bottle Dog, and BrewDog is targeting zones one, two and three of London for its first outlet.

BrewDog reiterated its aim to open bars in Brighton, Cardiff and Dundee as it re-issued its offer of £1,000 cash rewards for tip-offs that lead to successful acquisitions; the offer includes a lifetime discount at the new venue.

The firm said potential new sites need to be currently on the market; have previously been a bar and have both a cellar and a valid licence; have a capacity of 80-130; ideally be 150-200 square metres in size; and have good footfall but not necessarily completely central. BrewDog said corner units are preferable and it would consider sites to buy or lease.

For its Bottle Shops, BrewDog is looking for A1 or A3 premises between 50 and 100 meters in size, preferably with space for offices above or below.

BrewDog has set a deadline for submissions of 20 January 2014.

The company said: “2013 has been a busy year for BrewDog so far, what with the new brewery officially opening in Ellon, plus our first international bar launching in Stockholm. In addition, we opened BrewDog Leeds in March, will be opening in Shepherd’s Bush next month and have started work on our Sheffield site, which is due to open early 2014. Not only that, but we also have a site in Liverpool that is in the planning stages.

“But we’re not known for resting on our laurels and as such we are super keen to open another bunch of awesome craft beer havens across the UK. As well as opening more bars, we are also looking to open our first Bottle Dog shops, which will carry a huge range of beers from the best breweries from around the world, together with homebrewing equipment and ingredients. We’re really excited about the potential for our bars and shops and we want your help.”

BrewDog last week reported a fifth consecutive year of record growth and said it was on track to turnover £20m, up from £12m in 2012.
