THE BEER THAT STARTED IT ALL

Let’s take it back 15 years to 2007. The iPhone had just launched. NASA flew past Jupiter on its way to Pluto. And a revolution was taking place in the Northeast of Scotland. A beer revolution.

In a sea of industrialised lager two men and one dog decided enough was enough. They wanted to make beer that actually tasted of beer. To put flavour and quality back in your glass. One small step for two men. One giant leap for beerkind.

Punk IPA.

We’re celebrating 15 years of the beer that started it all. And we’re giving you 15% off the entire Punk family.

THE PUNK IPA STORY… BY THE MAN WHO MADE IT

Our co-founder Martin Dickie looks back at the life of Punk IPA, his beer baby (yes, that IS a thing), as it turns 15 years old.

"My first Punk was on cask at a pub in London. I was drinking real ale at the time, but Punk tasted like nothing else that was currently around with the huge hop taste."

Ross Ferguson

"Had my first Punk in 2008. Fan of craft beers ever since. Thank you BrewDog for getting me on the journey!"

Darryl Munro

What makes Punk IPA special?

We may be biased, but we think Punk IPA is a pretty special beer. We asked some of our crew members at the brewery – the ones who actually create the stuff – to tell us what makes it so great.

"My first sip of Punk was a revelation – I actually liked the taste! That started my beer journey and like my musical taste, I discovered it was quite varied…"

Rosemary Matheson
