Brewdog has selected the location for its first brewpub, and it's conveniently near the City A.M. offices.

The craft brewer, which is currently raising money in its fifth round of equity crowdfunding, has announced that it will open a new bar on the ground floor of the Minster Building, at the corner of Great Tower Street and Mark Lane.

The bar will also feature a 10 hectolitre brewing facility, meaning some of the beers will be freshly made in the City.

The site will be the first Brewdog bar to be situated at the heart of the Square Mile, with existing bars already on the outskirts of the City in Clerkenwell and Shoreditch.

The move marks another step in Brewdog's rapid expansion, which is set to include new brewing facilities in China and Australia. More bars are also planned for mainland Europe, with co-founder James Watt telling City A.M. last week that the company is specifically hoping to open more owned and managed bars.

Brewdog has said multiple times that it plans to IPO in the next five years, but last week Watt cast doubt on the assumption that this would take place on the London Stock Exchange, suggesting that Brewdog could snub the City with a listing in the US.
