Our Responsibilities

SUSTAINABILITY

Here at BrewDog we want every one of you to have an amazing time inside one of our bars – wherever it happens to be. And as we welcome more bars into our network we have been working on ways to minimise our environmental impact and benefit everyone.

You already know what we do – cutting edge craft beer, freshly-cooked food and next-level service (all set to a kick-ass soundtrack) – but here is what we stand for. This is the BrewDog way of thinking

vegetarian and vegan

We Champion the Alternatives

We are also proud that over half of all options on the BrewDog bar food menu are vegetarian, and a quarter are vegan. Plant-based alternatives have less of an impact on the planet, and they reflect the fact that 95% of BrewDog beers are suitable for vegans. We cater for all and believe in bold flavours in beer and in our food; whether meat, veggie or vegan.

Our New Food Philosophy

We proudly serve farm-to-table junk food in our bars. We can trace each ingredient back to the source and take as much care about this as we do when preparing them.

As beer lies at the centre of everything we do, every item on our menu is designed to pair with our craft beer – and many feature beer as part of the dish. Recommendations are printed on our menus; you can also ask one of our Cicerone-trained bar crew for their beer and food tips!

eliminating plastic

Ditching Plastic In Favour Of Recyclables

We have ditched all plastic from our packaging and switched to fully recycled and recyclable card for our multipack holders. No more rings, no more grips, nothing to dispose of. Just a four-pack of amazing beer, a quartet of 100% recyclable aluminium cans and an easy to recycle cardboard container.

cutting out waste

£1 Takeaway Coffee for Reusable Cups

All of our bars serve freshly-brewed coffee, roasted by hand at our Ellon HQ. From now on anybody who brings their own re-usable coffee cup into a UK BrewDog Bar can walk away with it filled for just £1. Think of it like a daytime growler fill to keep you going.

minimising our carbon footprint

Shortening The Distance Between Our Beer And You

Back in the day we had to brew all beer for export in our Ellon eco-brewery but having new brewhouses on three different continents cuts the need for this hugely. Thanks to our US brewhouse in Columbus and our new German brewery in Berlin (and upcoming Australian brewery in Brisbane) we can brew closer to our customers and minimise our carbon footprint.
