Craft beer brewery BrewDog has launched a food-focused venue providing the ideal environment to indulge in and explore beer & food pairing. A menu of carefully designed, surprising and flavourful hot dogs will offer a dedicated collection of dishes ideal for sampling against some of the world’s leading craft beers.
The new hot dog bar opened on Friday 16th October with BrewDog co-founder, James Watt saying:
“Dog Eat Dog is London’s new home for epic hot dog dishes that can stand up to a carefully curated craft beer draft selection. People are getting savvier with their choices, and offering incredible international craft beer along with really top quality, flavour-packed food will provide people with the ideal mix of awesome that we know they’re after.”
The first dedicated food-led project from the craft brewery, the new venue will offer 12 craft beer lines and 25 bottle options, with a craft soda fountain rotating soft drink options. Popular BrewDog headliners such as Punk IPA and Dead Pony Club will be available, as well as an exciting selection of guest craft beers from around the world.
The hot dog menu has been created to complement the wide range of craft beers on offer, and elevate the status of beer & food pairing with new twists on familiar classics.
Epicurean creations include
Tandoori Chicken Dog, paired with Punk IPA
This Tandoori-Spiced chicken Dog levels up the usual hot dog flavours with mango chutney, mint raita, red onion, chopped tomato, pickled carrot, coriander and crushed poppadum. The fresh, citrusy carbonation from BrewDog’s flagship Punk IPA cuts through the richness of the Tandoori Dog, and the hoppy explosion of exotic fruits complements the garam masala spice by gentle elevation. Tropical fruit and white wine grape flavours from Nelson Sauvin dance around sharpness of the mango chutney
Kimchee Dog with Five AM Red Ale
Five AM works wonders when paired with the standout Kimchee Dog. The pork and beef Dog, white cabbage kimchee, teriyaki sauce, toasted black sesame and nori seaweed strips offer a huge array of flavours to meld with the complex Five AM. Dark crystal malts offer up rich, deep brown sugar flavours that resonate with the tangy teriyaki sauce. An underlying contrast thrives between the kimchee, sweet dill pickle and orangey hop aromas, with sweetness from the malt soothing the sourness of the kimchee.
Chorizo Dog paired with Jack Hammer
A spicy chorizo sausage piled high with manchego cheese, almond romesco ketchup, smoked mayo and rocket. Very few beers could stand up to the ferocity of this dog, but Jack Hammer takes the challenge. Combining the two forms creates a flavourful monster of a pairing; a total assault on the senses (in a good way). The intense spiciness of the sausage lifts Jack Hammer’s infamous bitterness to a whole new galaxy, which in turn lifts the chilli to culminate in a crescendo of intense flavour and mouthfeel.
