Craft beer maker BrewDog is creating about 60 jobs at its new Dublin outpost

The company is hiring a new boss to manage the Silicon Docks operation

SCOTTISH CRAFT BEER maker BrewDog is set to hire about 60 people at its new outpost in Dublin. 

The company is currently seeking to recruit an “ambitious, bold and passionate” general manager who will be responsible for leading and developing a team of 60 across the areas of kitchen, bar and brewery. 

The 10,000 sq ft venue will have 30 taps and its own micro-brewery as it plans to take “the craft beer revolution” to Silicon Docks. According to the company’s website, the outlet will be “one of the most exciting BrewDog operations around the world”. 

“We are excited to embark on our first venture in the amazing city of Dublin and as always, we are going full Blow Sh*t Up style and opening an enormous 10,000 square foot venue,” the company said in a the job post on its website.  

The company did not respond to requests for comment at the time of publication. 

BrewDog’s hiring plans come after a report in the Sunday Times earlier this year around the company’s suspected move into the space at Sir John Rogerson’s Quay.

First Irish outpost 

The initial planning permission, submitted by real estate firm Kennedy Wilson on behalf of their client, identified the tenant only as “an operation that has been successfully established in other cities across the UK and Europe”.

The venue will be BrewDog’s first outpost in Ireland and, according to the company’s website, will be a “foodie site”. 

The maker of Dead Pony Club and Punk IPA last year registered a local company. Previously, it had announced plans to open its first Irish bar at the end of 2018, but the project was postponed due to a “challenging” property market.

BrewDog’s international marketing boss, Dan Jones, told Fora in October that plans for the Dublin pub would be reignited in 2019.

BrewDog was established in 2007 in north-east Scotland. It currently employs more than 1,000 people.
