Great beer that's great for the planet
Exceptional quality is the cornerstone of our brewery. All BrewDog beers are brewed using the finest malted barley and hops from the best producers around the world.
It's been one hell of a ride since we started brewing in co-founder Martin's mum's garage back in 2006. We now have 4 breweries and over 100 bars worldwide. And we're just getting started.
Our state-of-the-art Aberdeenshire brewery is a kingdom of steel and dreams. We have 3 brewing sites and a pilot kit for innovation. We also use windpower to make our beer, as well as utilising brewing by-products (like CO2, water and biomethane) to help power beer making.
Craft Beer Explained
Every country where beer is popular, there will be dozens if not hundreds of small brewers – from individuals in garages to microbreweries – doing something different. They’ll work on small batches to create novel beers in all manner of flavours, strengths and colours, from a diverse collection of ingredients.
It only takes 4 ingredients to brew beer, but what we do with those ingredients is what makes it special. The finest malted barley, high-quality hops from around the world, purified Scottish spring water and our own house yeast strains come together in harmony to create beer for all.
Beer Taste Explained
You don’t have to be a hop connoisseur or a competition judge to benefit from a little understanding about what makes beer taste the way it does. Learning to recognise the subtle differences between beers will help you to choose better beer, and that can only be a good thing.
From alcohol-free lagers to imperial stouts, beer is not defined by its ABV. Each style has a typical alcohol content, but we also like to push the boundaries so expect the unexpected.

ALL ABOUT IPAS
IPAs have a fascinating history dating back hundreds of years. By the 1990s, they had fallen out of fashion, Enter a new breed of craft brewers, when it practically became the standard drink in the craft beer world.
Guide to Dark Beers
While many of us are happy to stick with the froth all our lives (and there’s nothing wrong with that), some of us go for complexity, and of those, the darker path is the one they love the most.
What Makes a Sour Beer?
The power of sour is a curious thing: make one man weep, make another man get a letter from Huey Lewis’s copyright attorney. So what’s behind this distinctive flavour of beer, and why is it still more of a curiosity than a brewers’ staple? Here’s a basic guide to a complex subject.
HOW IS ALCOHOL-FREE BEER MADE?
Alcohol-free beer, also known as low-alcohol beer, is meant to have the same taste as a regular beer without high alcohol content. It can contain anything from zero to 0.5% ABV (alcohol by volume), and in most instances, it will be a lager, but it can also be an ale and even an IPA.
