Planning Permission granted for our new eco-brewery!
Phase 2 BrewDog brewery given the green light.
Back in April we told you that we had bought a field.
We are super excited to announce that the local authorities have approved the plans for our new brewery situated just outside Aberdeen. With the plans now formally approved we are now able to proceed with our rock 'n roll phase 2 brewery. The bottle of Punk IPA in the corner of the shot is a little sneak preview of what we we have instore for this field.
The new facility will be a completely energy self sufficient state of the art BrewDog brewery. A flagship for renewable energy; a theatre of beer, where we will continue to expand our company, make hardcore beers and push the boundaries of contemporary brewing. All whilst being very nice to the environment.
At 8 acres we are also going to have some space for some other cool things; a nice park, a little beer garden, our own little hop field and a small raspberry plantation (they are James' favourite fruit and Martin has some cool raspberry beer ideas). Any other suggestions would be appreciated!
You can invest in BrewDog and our new brewery at www.equityforpunks.com
We will keep you updated on the blog as to the progress with the new site and brewery.

- If you have some space, have you thought you will do with your coproducts? Maybe you would have room for some pigs to eat your spent grains and then you could make punk IPA sausages...yum :) Rachel Long04.12.2009
- Nice to see the busy bodies are still getting their misinformed feathers ruffled. Surely they should drive their Toyota Prius to the makers of cheap vodka or even Buckfast, since that seems to be the fuel for nights of generally twattery, and raise their grievances with them. Ive never had abuse from someone drinking BrewDog beers, other than friendly banter, but then these people would need friends to know what that is like.
Congratulations on the news about the planning permission guys, I hope to invest in the new year. Here is to a long and successful run for BrewDog. Steve Armstrong03.12.2009
- John Galvin- I have been trying to decide if your post was tongue-in-cheek. If it was, I apologise for missing the joke! If not...
Your assertion that a BrewDog high alcohol beer is contributing to appalling problems is flawed. These problems were there long before BrewDog came along and are a result of many different problems in society. If you are unable to grasp this and are still looking to point the finger at a particular type of drink as a cause, look at CHEAP, mainstream, moderately alcoholic drinks. These are far more likely to be the alcoholic yob beverage of choice.
If you believe that strong drinks are the problem then presumably you will be posting similar faux-outraged comments on the websites of spirit & liqueur producers- these drinks have a higher ABV than beer and must therefore be even more evil...
Also, Where is the hypocrisy? I fail to see the links between striving for carbon neutrality and producing a niche high-strength beer for a small number of discerning consumers.
Great news on the planning permission, guys. Congratulations! Paul H03.12.2009
- Do you realy think all teenagers are going to rush to pay £30 for a bottle of beer or go to Asda Tescos for a entire night out for £3. Dont blame niche brewerys or even pubs, the UKs large alcohol problems stem from cheap cut price drink from companys protected by paying massive amounts of tax the goverment. Tax dollars they simply can not do with out. Conor Small03.12.2009
- Way to go...try to demonstrate Green credentials, whilst contributing to the UKs appalling alcohol problems with ridiculous beer ABVs. How hypocritical. John Galvin03.12.2009
