Ushering in a New Era

Ushering in a New Era

Two hundred and twenty three Equity Punks, four draft beer lines, twenty seven brewery tours and one, hop encrusted red ribbon all contributed to a marvellous day of shenanigans and celebrations as we officially opened our new brewery.raiseglass_620_01
The Official Opening of the New Brewery!

jamesraise_620Thanks to all the Equity Punks who came to pay their respects at our new altar of craft beer. The weather was pretty grim but we were snug inside our shiny new catherdral of craft.martinspeak_620


group_620An especially big thanks to Wilson Hamilton, the Equity Punk angel who won our shareholder photo competition to be our guest of honour at the opening and cut the hop encrusted ribbon.


 pose_620_01Wilson and his spectacular impromptu speech momentarily stole the lime light from hop pup Simcoe, who held a torch to Bracken's legacy by introducing himself to all our shareholders- and occassionally to their burgers too!

simcoe_620Thanks again for dropping by to check out this dream you helped make a reality. 2013 promises to be another epic year of amazing craft beers.










cheers_620 From all of us here at BrewDog, love hops and live the dream! x

  • Here's to the next chapter in BrewDog's history - looking forward to seeing some small batch experiments coming out of the old brewery, and there always being beer on the shelves in my local supermarket thanks to the new one! Well done!
