A BrewDog bar in Leicester
Beer hotels – it’s taken a while, but it appears they might be finally becoming a Thing. Hot on the heels of the Dogfish Inn in Delaware comes news that Scottish craft brewer BrewDog is planning to open its own hotel.

Last time we checked in on Brussels, we were all about the beer bar at the new Zoom Hotel in Ixelles (up the hill from the medieval bit, but where all
we the cool kids go). 50 Belgian beers, selected by a top Belgian sommelier? Oui, s’il vous plait.
So obviously, when we were in Brussels last week, there was only one place we were going to stay. More on the hotel another time, but for now, here is the beer bar.
Yeah, it’s not what we were expecting either. Discreet. Grown up. Who knew boozing could be like this?

Back in July, one of the east coast's best craft brewers, Dogfish Head, opened a beer-themed hotel halfway between its brewpub in Rehoboth Beach and production brewery in Milton, DE.
With 16-rooms and a modest, motel-like exterior, the property is not going to turn any heads on its first impression. In fact, you don't really even get a sense of the "beer theme" when looking at photos. The hotel's custom offerings of bottle openers and beer soap don't make a lot of noise.
But, as it goes with beer, you really don't know what you have until you dive in and taste it. Maybe the Dogfish Head Hotel isn't the loudest aesthetically speaking, but we love the way it has chosen to go about its business. And would you believe that the thing we love most is its lack of flair or, in this case, its lack of narcissism? Can you believe that what we respect most about the Dogfish Head Hotel is that it doesn't even serve its own beer?

If you're staying at a Sheraton Hotel this summer, expect to find a new sort of happy hour in their lobbies.
USA Today reports that Sheraton has partnered up with Wine Spectator magazine to create a Social Hour where guests can sample premium wines with high grades from Wine Spectator. Beyond wine-tasting (sorry, no full free glasses will be poured), Sheraton will also unveil a new menu, Sheraton Selects, that pairs food with certain wines.
The Social Hour program is set to go worldwide with Sheraton Hotels in Phoenix, Boston, Los Angeles and Chicago kicking it off next week. The rest of Sheratons should follow suit by June 1.
Wine is fine but if you're more into the brewskies then you should try out Sheraton's fun younger sibling, Four Points By Sheraton, the brand that infamously hired a CBO--Chief Beer Officer to oversee their BestBrews program which serves up locally brewed beer at participating Four Points hotels.
