craft beer cocktails


**Note - the shortlist for the 2012 photo competition will be announced next week.

We know you punks always like to get stuck in. The #BrewDogging challenge we held a couple of weeks ago was phenomenal, and you guys showed enormous creativity and humour, and most of all, your love for BrewDog. So pat yourselves on the backs for being awesome.

We’re seriously upping up the notch a bit with our new competition, last time you had to send in pictures, but THIS time… you have to create your own original BrewDog cocktail.

“Do we just send in our recipe ideas” we hear you say? Well, yes, but it doesn’t quite stop there. The top 5 entrants will be invited to BrewDog Camden to make their cocktails in front of a typical BrewDog crowd, and you won’t have to spend a penny. If you think you have the skills to create a killer craft beer cocktail, then just follow the instructions below:

1-    The cocktail challenge can be entered via Twitter or Facebook or email. Entrants must include the hashtag or title #MixDog Emails are to be sent to zarah@brewdog.com

2-    In your entry, include the ingredients, mixing process, cocktail name and of course an image of the finished product

3-    You can be as innovative as you want with your entry; video entries are welcome, or stop motion if you feel really creative. We will be judging the cocktails based on the innovativeness of the mixes, we will not be prejudiced against simple images

4-    The top 5 entrants will be invited to BrewDog Camden, all expenses paid, to create their cocktails in front of the customers. The winning cocktail (as chosen by our Camden customers) will be available in all our bars with the winner’s name attached to it – how d’ya like them hops?


So if you fancy yourself as the next Brian Flanagan, get mixing. The competition opens today and closes on October 1st.  We’ll be making a blog post with the top 10 at the end of the competition too!

To get your creative juices brewing, here’s a couple of our craft beer cocktails:


Release The Bracken

A twisted, merciless creation inspired by Greek Mythology, honestly!

Ingredients: BrewDog Riptide, Kraken Rum, Fentimans Curiosity Cola and grated dark chocolate.

Build over ice in a BrewDog Teku glass. Mix 25ml of Kraken Rum, a third of a pint of BrewDog Riptide and combine with a dash of curiosity cola. Mix well and garnish with grated dark chocolate.


Posh Punk

A thirst quencher full of Punk attitude and perfect for the coming summer.

Ingredients: BrewDog Punk IPA, Caorunn Gin, Fentimans Victorian Lemonade and fresh lemon.

Build Over ice in a BrewDog 2/3 pint glass. Add 25ml of gin followed by a third of a pint of the Punk IPA. Top up with lemonade, stir and garnish with fresh lemon.

"All expenses paid." Does that also apply to non-british residents? From Sweden to be more precise?
