Scottish craft brewing company Brewdog is searching for sites to expand into Ireland, with the possibility of two new bars opening in the country by the end of 2018.
Brewdog reportedly plans to open a brewpub in Dublin as well as several additional venues in other parts of Ireland, with the company being confident that it will complete deals for the first two sites within the next month and a half.
Speaking to The Sunday Business Post, head of international at Brewdog Niall Phelan said, "We are starting to close in on a few potential options. The best case scenario will see the deal closed on one site within the next five to six weeks, and that would have it opening in late 2018 or 2019. We're looking at a second location as well with the same timeline in mind."
