Beer lovers rejoice, a hotel where you'll be able enjoy a chilled beer in the shower, can top up from your own draught tap in your bedroom and even try a hop face mask, is in the works.

This booze-themed accommodation is the brainchild of Scottish craft beer company Brewdog, which is set to open a hotel in Columbus, Ohio.

The brand aims to provide fans with "the ultimate beer-themed immersive experience" by attaching the hotel to their brand new, state-of-the-art 100,000 square foot brewery in Columbus, which they claim will be "one of the most technologically-advanced and environmentally-friendly" breweries in the world.

The hotel, named The DogHouse, will include a craft beer spa, complete with hop face masks, malted barley massages, 'Hoppy Feet' pedicures, plus hop-infused shampoo and shower gels.

Mini fridges stocked with craft beer are in the showers - hand-selected by the BrewDog co-founders, James Watt and Martin Dickie - while Punk IPA will be on tap in the bedrooms.

There will also be deluxe beer-infused breakfasts, lunches and dinners, with beers matched to every course.

Brewdog have launched an IndieGoGo campaign to crowdfund the venture - and were aiming to raise $75,000 in 30 days to build the craft beer hotel and sour beer facility. So far, however, they've successfully sourced over $120,000.

They are aiming to throw open the doors of The DogHouse by the end of September 2018.

Guests can also enjoy private brewery tours, and backers of the IndieGoGo campaign can secure the first five releases from the sour beer facility before anyone else as well as gaining access to behind-the-scenes plans and designs as and when they are developed, along with unique perks and discounts.

James Watt said: "So many people have visited our new brewery in America so far, and we've not even released our first beer yet.

"With the number of Equity Punks we now have Stateside, as well as our international community of 55,000 shareholders, we're gearing up to help make the pilgrimage to our brewery an even more immersive craft beer experience.

"The rooms in The DogHouse will reminiscent of our most popular beers, with rooms overlooking the feeders in our new sour beer facility, and we'll have hop-infused face masks - tailored to the hops in your favourite beers - malted barley massages plus, possibly my favourite part, a fridge in your en suite so you're never more than arm's length from a chilled can of Punk IPA. Forget Disneyland, this is the new happiest place on Earth."

Mr Watt continued: "Our army of beer geeks have been asking for a beer hotel for a while, and we've been listening - now is the time to kick-start one of the most ambitious projects we've ever planned, all with the backing of our global community of beer fans.

"This will be the world's only fully-immersive craft beer destination. Every single part of your stay at DogHouse will be absolutely dominated by hops, malt and incredible beer; from your shower, to your breakfast, to the view from your room, to the minibar and perks like your own Punk IPA tap."

Last week, the first BrewDog US bar, DogTap launched, introducing Columbus locals to BrewDog's headliners, alongside a range of curated beers from local craft breweries.
