BrewDog Glasgow with 3 days to go, 5am Saint and other news

Invest in BrewDog at

3 days until we officially open our doors and we still have a lot of work to do. Here are some photos from today.

Above is the bar and the back gantry. Soon to be complete with chalkboards, our logo and the squirrel from Aberdeen may even visit for a vacation.


When we tore everything back, we found this amazing old floor from the 1920s. we thought it would be a shame to cover it up.


The sign, some tables and a view of the bar.

*3 days to go - wish us luck!* Hopefully see loads of you scamps there on Saturday on our official opening night.


The 5am Saint disaster, from last week is shown below. The first picture is before, the 2nd is during.


These images are screen grabs from our CCTV system last week. We had an epic disaster when the carb-stone popped out of a bright beer tank. A big tank of 5am Saint ended up on our brewery floor. And we already have zero stock.


Oh and this is coming off our bottling line today...



Prototype 17 is now available here

And our new growlers here

I just wanted to tell you that Punk IPA is my favorite beer (enjoying it right now). I live in New Hampshire, USA, and this is the only Brew Dogs beer I've come across. I tried it because of the name (being an old punk rocker myself) and I just love it and wish I could try your other brews. Cheers!

Congratulations to @beeryme, new equity punk and first person to have a beer in all the bars in the same day. Beat me by a day, I'm doing it tomorrow.

Hi, I live next door to your new bar so you will be my new local! Ive been very excited watching it develope over the last couple of months, and will be glad to be able to get a parking space now! lol Can you tell me if the grand opening tomorrow is by invite only or is it open to everyone? And what time are you opening? Thanks :)

Might make the Glasgow opening yet, visiting Edinburgh "Dog" today. Any other Dogs out there fancy doing the three Dogs in one day ? We can arrange something, hopefully soon (before a 4th and 5th maybe open and makes the logistics a tadmore difficult :) It's a Dogs life !

Don't let me down Brewdog Glasgow. I've wasted enough money on GBBF tickets. Don't want a wasted trip to Glasgow. You will be open on Saturday.

Will the new brews be in Edinburgh this weekend ? Damn catastrophy about the 5am Saint

Might not make the grand openong in Glasgow on Saturday as have arranged to meet some peeps in the Edinburgh BrewDog. However, me and a couple of pals are planning to do a "threesome" .. Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh in the one day, maybe for charity. We will be recognizable by our Brewdog attire and tattoos (proper ones), and our outlandish Fife accents. LONG LIVE THE DOG !

Good luck with Saturday opening. I assume there will be Growlers on site for take away? Will there be a seperate takeaway cost for draft beer or will it just be the same as buying a pint in the bar? I know in the States the growler fill is a cheaper option.

Our awesome American intern can't spell :)

what type of Irish whiskey has been used for the prototype 17 then? Whiskey spelled with an E is from Ireland, isn't it? Or does this now become and instant collectors item because of a mis-spelling on the label?

Eh...the epic 5am saint disaster - u guys didnt see that?

Will Black Tokyo Horizon be coming to the States?
B Spooer 20th July, 2011 11:14am
Steve - it wasnt there about an hour ago. I guess they are adding after publication.
Johnny 20th July, 2011 11:13am
When will the Black Tokyo Horizon be on sale in the shop?
Steve 20th July, 2011 11:11am
Mr Spooner (I presume) the 5am saint was mentioned, the huge tankful all of the floor?!?
