Located on a 42-acre site in Columbus, the Doghouse Columbus is the world’s first beer hotel where you can wake up, quite literally, inside of a brewery. Although the idea of staying on-site in a brewery is the initial draw to this property, it is only the beginning.

The rooms at the Doghouse feature lots of unique touches including beer on tap.

There are also 8 deluxe suites that feature custom artwork detailing the history of the company and their unique brews. Plus, all of the rooms offer views of the sour beer brewing facility.

While you’re there, you can take a 60-minute tour of the facility and learn all about the brewing process from beginning to end. The tour includes several beer samples along the way, plus a flight of 4 beers back at the taproom at the end of the tour. If you want a little food to go with all that great beer, they also offer a wide variety of dishes from small plates and side dishes, to salads, sandwiches and pizzas. All of their burgers are made with locally sourced beef, and there are also plenty of vegetarian and gluten-free options available.
