Two years after closing its site in Angel, Islington, Brewdog has re-opened its north London branch with a focus on homebrewing and pizza.

The site, which is situated on Essex Road, Islington, replaced the former 'Dog Eat Dog' concept which closed two years ago, and will see 14 taps and four 20 litre homebrew kits alongside a deli fridge stocked with a wide range of beers.

It is launching with the opportunity for three homebrewers to win a brewing day at the pub, which will allow winners to create their brews on the kits onsite.

The news follows the opening of Brewdog Tower Hill last month - the pubco's first brewpub, it is the brewer's largest site with a 10 hectolitre brew kit, making it the only place in the UK outside of its Scottish headquarters brewing its beers. It also brews exclusive beers in the kit for its London bar network.

The Tower Hill site is also the first Brewdog bar to serve breakfast and brunch dishes alongside its pizza, burger and wings menu.

Last October, the brewery and operator launched its fifth round of Equity for Punks, raising £16 million to date with a desire to hit £50 million. 

James Watt, co-founder of BrewDog said: "London has established itself as a hub for passionate, innovative and experimental craft brewers and we're proud to be able to stand by their side in the crusade for awesome craft beer.

"Collaborating and connecting with like-minded people is what fuels us, so we're thrilled to be able to welcome more zeal, brilliance and love for craft beer into the fold with the awesome homebrew kits in our ninth London bar.

"The more people we can introduce to the world of beer and brewing, the better our community will be."
