BrewDog Edinburgh - Officially Open For Business
BrewDog Edinburgh springs into life...
Last Tuesday night saw the craft beer revolution kick into action on the streets of Edinburgh as our new bar officially opened its doors to beer lovers, BrewDog aficionados, Equity for Punks shareholders and a small group of confused locals who were wondering what the hell had happened to a karaoke bar once known as Chasers.
Thankfully we'd managed to shake off this venue's reputation as a lager-stained dive in favour of an environment more akin to that of a craft beer haven in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town.
Months of preparation, credit to project manager Rebecca and the rest of the team, paid off as what must have been close to 150 people – plus countless more that drifted in and out throughout the night – managed to cram themselves into BrewDog's first official Edinburgh location.
With Bruce kick-starting the night with a welcome speech and plenty of information on the beers available by bottle and tap, the atmosphere wasn't just celebratory but also one of curiosity as brews like Lost Abbey's Angels Share , Stone's Smoked Porter, Port Brewing's Mongo IPA and a whole raft of BrewDog beers including Bitch Please, Punk Monk, Hardcore and our Single Hop range hit glasses for the first - but presumably not the last – time.
Guest appearances from our crack team of brewers, such as Graeme, Franz, Jack, Keegan and Andy, meant the night was even complete with an ad-hoc meet and greet inbetween games of Pop-up Pirate and slices of pizza.
BrewDog Edinburgh is now officially open so come grab a beer and say hi!
Thanks to everyone who made it down on Tuesday, we hope to see you all again soon.
