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.

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.”
