Brew at the Bog
Summer music festivals in Scotland for many bring only one ominous red, lager tinged letter to mind. Wouldn’t you rather stray from the flock and be knocking back something with bite, passion and flavour whilst listening to some of Scotland’s best alternative acts?
This May we’ve teamed up with chaps from BogBain farm in Inverness to bring:
Brew at the Bog
Bogbain Farm, Saturday May 5th, 2012
When it comes to new up and coming bands Scotland is awash with talented individuals, combine this with fantastic scenery and craft beer and you have one tasty combo .
May 5th marks the first year of this day long music and beer unity. Situated on the outskirts of Inverness with a fantastic view over the city, Bog Bain farm will transform into a celebration of Alternative Scottish Music fuelled by our award winning craft brews.
Kitty the Lion
18 bands have been confirmed so far including the fantastic Three Blind Wolves and Endor.
Tickets are on sale now, get on it fast scamps.
- This is a great idea! More of this. Funny enough (no pun intended), is something that is missing pre-fosters massive corporate sponsored- Edinburgh fringe fest, is the two weeks prior to this as an alternative venue for artists to perform at/in/with/city *delete as appropriate.
The Fringe is now and has been just an advert for Fosters and their likes, and we need something smaller and closer to the roots it sprung from, welcoming talent rather than which corporate sponsor is likely to fund. I do not care which scottish city it's in, but this event if popular could be a great 1st step.

One giant gulf for man kind ;)perspicacitycorruption11.01.2012
- Is BrewDog Jonny's band playing?
- I got my order sorted out 2 days after complaining here on the blog - they do get it sorted eventually. Anyway, I did it before the big apology. Hopefully, they will do it all in-house soon and get more awesome craft bottled beers in! Tip: Why not have an inventory count next to the prices like the Magic Rock Brewery website? stravale10.01.2012
- Crosscustomer. Dont hold your breath. ordered on 19/12/11. Dropped James an email on 3/1/12, said he would sort it. still waiting.......... mico131410.01.2012
- Very excited. Love those bands! Alex H10.01.2012
- Festival looks epic! Can't wait. Becca10.01.2012
- @cross customer - drop me an email - james(at)brewdog.com and I will fix this for you!
We explain the issues here http://www.brewdog.com/blog-article/online-shop-statement
Just about all fixed now!
- This is our blog and we retain the right to control which comments we publish.
- Absolutely the worst customer service I have ever received. Placed order on 17 December and still chasing them to get my parcel to me. No one bothers to respond or return calls Crosscustomer10.01.2012
- This looks great! Well done BrewDog for backing such a cool alternative festival - I'm really looking forward sipping some of my own beer (happy shareholder) and listening to what looks to be a brilliant line-up of homegrown talent.
Forget an 'I'm with the Band' t-shirt, I'll be hoping for a "I'm with the Brewery' one.Joseph10.01.2012
- oh by the way I know it says Scottish unsigned bands but can it be like international football as in my uncle is Scottish ..... and the lead vocal once ate a Scotch Egg! @mbmmchrysler10.01.2012
- Yes, it is bad business but lots of negative comments from the people who are supposed to have the most confidence in brewdog isn't exactly good business either.
And deleting the comments at least shows they've seen them and doesn't mean they're not taking them on board, just don't want to continuously advertise their problems, which they have already admitted too anywayGrigor10.01.2012
- What kind of capacity are we talking about? Don10.01.2012
- It may not have occurred to you that I might think they'd make more money if they refrained from CAMRA bashing and the other "hilarious" antics?
There were ~20 comments on the Monhopoly blog, all from different people, at least three of which I know to be shareholders. All the critical comments were deleted.
Whether I'm a shareholder or not, that's bad business practice.Finlay10.01.2012
- No Finlay, the really important question would be why are shareholders flooding the blogs with bad comments? I mean who in their right mind invests in a company and then bad mouths it in their advertising?! Do you not want people buying brewdog beer and making you more money??? Grigors10.01.2012
- The really important question is, will you be deleting shareholder comments from this blog as well? Finlay10.01.2012
- Fantastic - about time inverness was part of the craft beer revolution. Current beer scene (if your lucky) is either black isle stuff which is great or the sandal wearing, pump clip parade, fuggle fest that is cairngorm ales. Failing that its the usual suspects. DrakiesBoy10.01.2012
- Should work, Brewdog have enough bearded wizards following them to guide them into anything. Line up looks good, although the 3 Blinds Wolves did turn up to one of our gigs on their 'Scottish tour' with the bass player forgetting his guitar. Nice work! The Fiddler10.01.2012
- WOOHOO! Can't wait for this - it's going to be ace! I heard about it on radio scotland and the lineup is amazing! buying my tickets on friday!
haha loving the cow horns!Kate Goldie10.01.2012
- Room for any more bands?? www.myownagenda.co.uk let me know - marc at email@example.com. ... Thanks! @mbmmchrysler10.01.2012
- Give it a chance guys - its not meant ot be Rock ness or anything like that - its a very small, intimate festival that is for music lovers and beer lovers - this is a festival for those who like to find new music and new tastes. Rock Ness it is not! northern scott10.01.2012
- Aren't you forgetting Rockness!
After the Northern Lights Festival failed misserably, I can't see many people willing to make the trek up to Inverness to watch relatively unknown bands!
The draw of drinking Brew Dog at a festival won't be motivation enough!
To say I'm sceptical as to whether this will work or not is an understatement!Dingle Berry10.01.2012
- Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. On closer inspection it appears to be one of Desperate Dan's cow pies. GJDunbar10.01.2012
- If you take a closer look Mark I think you'll find that it is indeed Desperate Dans favourite food. It's a dish of cow pie. Hmmm what about a beer to go with that now? ianprise10.01.2012
- Is that a fire place with cow horns? Awesome. Mark BeerBirraBier10.01.2012
