Martin and james were bored of the industrially brewed lagers and stuffy ales that dominated the UK beer market They decided the best way to fix this undesirable predicament was to brew there own. Consequently in April 2007 BrewDog was born. Both only 24 at the time, they leased a building in Fraserburgh, got some scary bank loans, spent all there money on stainless steel and started making some hardcore craft beers. They brewed tiny batches, filled bottles by hand and sold our beers at local markets and out of the back of there beat up old van. There biggest mission when they set up BrewDog was to make other people as passionate about great craft beer as they are. And that is still there biggest mission today.
In 2015 they launched the largest equity crowdfunding scheme in human history – equity for punks IV – Breaking world records in the process. They opened 17 new bars, including an epic new location in there home city of Aberdeen as well as the triple threat of awesome beer, food and BottleDog in the form of DogHouse in Glasgow. They also launched there first ShuffleDog (Leeds), Dog Eat Dog (Angel) and reclaimed central London for craft beer (BrewDog Soho).They also installed a kick-ass canning line at there Ellon eco-brewery, swept the nation with the long-awaited canned Jack Hammer, and released the strongest canned ale in the world; Black Eyed King Imp.
There most amazing year yet saw the boys brew 65 different beers, hit the screens for a third season of Brew Dogs and debut plans for the largest venture in BrewDog history – taking on the USA with BrewDog Columbus.
