About BrewDog

We were bored of the industrially brewed lagers and stuffy ales that dominate the UK market. We decided the best way to fix this undesirable predicament was to brew our own beers. Consequently in April 2007 BrewDog was born.Both only 24 at the time, we leased a building, got some scary bank loans, spent all our money on stainless steel and started making some hardcore beers.

Every day at 12 noon throughout the week commencing Monday 25th March BrewDog will post on their blog asking beer fans to vote on three options for various elements of the #Mashtag brew.  They will also be offering advice to craft beer fans about the brewery process and the effect of various ingredients on the finished product.

The voting options are as follows;

  • Monday 25th March – Beer Style
  • Tuesday 26th March – Malt Bill & ABV
  • Wedneday 27th March – Hops & IBU

  • Friday 29th March – Name


BrewDog co-founder and Head Brewer Martin Dickie commented:

“We have always been inspired by the passion, knowledge and enthusiasm of craft beer drinkers.  We have decided that democratic beer is the future and we are giving up the important brewing decisions to our fans, customers and any who wants to learn more about the craft beer process and cast their vote.”

Martin continued:

“BrewDog has always been about experimentation, and pushing the boundaries of what beer can be and do.  We can’t wait to see what weird and wonderful ideas our fans come up with.  The possibilities are endless.”
