Help us name our old brewery

BrewDog's Fraserburgh Brewery: Our new brewing lab!

Back in December we made the announcement that we would be keeping our old Fraserburgh brewery online as a crazy, Willy Wonka style laboratory of brewing experimentation.


Our Fraserburgh was our spiritual birthplace, has been our home for the last 5 years so it would have been a shame to leave it completely. Brewing in small batches is central to what we do and retaining the Fraserburgh site will enable us to do this as well as produce larger batches of our core range beers at our awesome new Ellon brewery.

BrewDog's Fraserburgh Brewery: Our new brewing lab

You can look forward to barrel aged beers, sour beers and a whole host of other cool stuff coming from Fraserburgh over the next 12 months. Now we want your help to name our old brewery; it would be shame to have an awesome experimental brewing facility without a suitably epic name.

Here are some suggested names to get your creative juices flowing:

National Centre for Hop Research

Fraserburgh Arts & Science Centre

Area 52

The Stephen Hawking Theoretical Beer Centre

Suburban Dream Fallout Shelter

Outlaw Elite HQ

Let us know if you like any of these or if you have any better suggestions!

Often described as the man who started the industrial revolution in his small lab, he called his 'The Attic' oh and his name was James Watt! Surely this has to be nammed The Attic as we start the Craft Beer Revolution.

In lieu of Bracken's spiritual successor, Simcoe, the experimental brewery should be called:"The Golden Lab"
