You could argue that Dog Tap doesn't really belong in this list. After all, if we take this web page as the official statement of BrewDog's bar locations, there's (currently) no sign of Ellon on there at all. To which I would argue a) BottleDog shouldn't be on there because it's a shop, and b) Dog Tap is a BrewDog bar, but it's a special case - it's located inside the brewery building itself, just outside Aberdeen.
I've hedged my bets with that '(currently)' above because that may change, since strictly speaking the bar isn't open yet. But last weekend, a sneak preview was offered to anyone who was in town for the 2014 BrewDog AGM. And as I've previously covered the meetings that took place in 2012 and 2013, we may as well say a few words about this year's while we're here.
