Neil Taylor

I’m Neil. I’ve been working for BrewDog for a year now and have ended up as General Manager of BrewDog Camden by way of BrewDog Edinburgh and BrewDog Aberdeen. I always wear a hat, I have terrible taste in music and I’m not ashamed, I like getting drawn on, I’m the only Scot in the bar, I resent the notion of sleep, I love craft beer and I am a big fan of swearing in ways even my staff can’t understand.

Lucy Peacock

I’m Lucy, assistant manager at Brewdog Camden and work wife to Neil. My role is to assist Neil with anything he desires, which includes regular demands of 'juice' (Irn Bru) and 'something spicy, saucy, meaty and cheesy'. I make sure all the staff are happy and supplied with vitamins and sweet treats. I spend 70% of my time dancing and singing and you will rarely see me without lipstick.

I started my beery career in a craft beer bar in Rochester, New York called The Old Toad. I arrived in America with no knowledge of beer what so ever but within an hour of arriving had tasted my first Dogfish Head 120minute IPA and the geekery had begun.

I am the epitome of a posh punk. That is to say, i love full flavoured, hand crafted brews (especially if they're dark) and a good gin and tonic. I am also hugely interested in collecting/drinking single malts so I can have a whisky cellar when I am older. Beer has gone from a small interest to being my life, thanks to the work of some dedicated Brewdogians across Scotland and England. The eclectic music heard in our bar invariably comes from myself, with a little help from my friends. I’ll talk to anyone about anything, anytime you want. As long as its beer, sports or music. Proud holder of the 2nd happiest member of staff award, behind Lucy. Just.

Mash tun emptier of the year 2011, I thought my life couldn't get any better... Then BrewDog decided to open a bar in London. I love craft beer, I'm constantly frustrated by CAMRA dinosaurs, and I dislike shaving. You'll see me at new bars as they open, but I'll always come home to Camden.

I'd like to say I have all these super cool hobbies outside of work but I don't, it's all about beer! I home brew, I cook food to match with beer, and I attend lots of beery events. I recently converted my Dad to craft beer, a wine drinker of 38 years, come see me in the bar and this will happen to you!

Joe Booth

Hi I'm Joe, resident beer evangelist and viking at Camden. I spend my time converting lager hordes to the folds of the craft beer revolouton using only the tools of my dazzling charm and wit. I can also be found looking surly in a pink apron as I embark on voyages of pizza and burger perfection.

My other hobbies include: reading things, baking things, tending to my sincere caffeine addiction, cleaning out my beer rating dungeon, hanging on a tree for 9 days pierced by my own spear gugnir and being utterly pretentious.

Kieran Hawkins

k_335

I’m Kieran (kitchen bitch) I mostly work in a windowless room underground. Think of me as a culinary Gollum. Occasionally I escape and you’ll find me on the bar attempting to convert unimaginative lager boys and wine girls into beer geeks like me. I have a law degree I don’t use because beer is so much more interesting! When I’m not working I drink great beer, cook and eat great food and read, a lot. I’m really into beer and food matching so just ask for killer combinations.

Nicci Peet

Hi! I'm Nicci. I thought I knew a bit about beer before I started working here, but I didn't. Brew Dog Camden is slowly turning me into a beer geek and I'm not complaining.

When I'm not serving you lovely people and working on my beer knowledge I'm generally wandering around London taking pictures, impulse buying weird looking magazines and going to gigs. I have a preoccupation with travel (to the point where I have the small problem of instantly buying a plane ticket as soon as I have enough money) and an unhealthy obsession with tea (I have more types of tea in my kitchen than fingers to count them on)...and that's pretty much me.

Does not love: Prawns, the word 'moist'.

Matt Bunn

I’m a whimsical gentleman. I once befriended a ne'er-do-well owl. On a scale of 1 to arbitrary, I'd rate myself a solid 5. If you listen closely, you'll hear that I'm constantly singing Disney songs. I have seen the godfather at least twice. I’m 1,276th in line to the throne of Norway. I’m an expert in counterterrorism. I can read and write ancient Greek and hieroglyphics. I once killed a man. I brew and like some beers. I once trampled a mountain. I killed Mufasa. I’ve been described as 'that guy.' I once tied a cat to a dog. I appear on Malaysian 50 dollar notes, in the background. If I could describe myself in 3 words, I probably wouldn't.

Abigail Reid aka Abs

Occupation: Full time Part I Architect and part time bar tender

A little about me: I first came to BrewDog for a good beer and a chat with a friend, after one beer the boys behind the bar swayed me to become one of them. Who could refuse good beer, good company and a great atmosphere. I haven’t left or looked back since.

  • Heard so many amazing things about the BrewDog staff in all their locations.

    On my first visit to Camden I certainly was not disappointed. Epic customer service from people who are insanely passionate about great beer.

    And their love of it really is infectious!

    No Sunday is now complete without a Punk IPA, Whitechapel burger and a game of Connect 4 at BrewDog Camden!
