About BrewDog

We were bored of the industrially brewed lagers and stuffy ales that dominate the UK market. We decided the best way to fix this undesirable predicament was to brew our own beers. Consequently in April 2007 BrewDog was born.Both only 24 at the time, we leased a building, got some scary bank loans, spent all our money on stainless steel and started making some hardcore beers.

Christmas comes early for Birmingham as BrewDog arrives in town

BrewDog Birmingham is the maverick brewer’s tenth craft beer bar to hit the UK

BrewDog, Scotland’s largest independent brewery has officially opened BrewDog Birmingham, its tenth craft beer bar. Located at 81-87 John Bright Street, the new bar will be the last opening of 2012, which has seen BrewDog open five bars, including three in the last three months.

  • BrewDog Birmingham has a capacity of 122
  • The bar will serve a selection of cheese and meat boards featuring locally sourced produce
  • All food is sourced from within a 15 mile region
  • The bar serves a variety of BrewDog beers alongside  draught beers from breweries all over the world, including Mikkeller, Evil Twin, The Kernel, Flying Dog, Rouge and Ballast Point.
  • BrewDog aims to open a further 10 bars across the UK in 2013, plus more oversees.


BrewDog co-founder James Watt commented:

“As the second largest city in the UK, it was inevitable that BrewDog would set up shop in Birmingham. Ever since we opened our first bar in Aberdeen in 2010 we’ve had a chorus of Birmingham folk asking when we will be coming to town. It’s been a long time coming, and we couldn’t be prouder to have BrewDog Birmingham see out what has been an amazing year for us and our bar division.”


James Watt continued:

“As with any revolution, it needs the support of the masses and with the opening of BrewDog Birmingham, we can now say we are a step closer to having a physical presence in all the major cities in the UK. This bar is the latest arrow in our quiver as we confront the monolithic mega corporations peddling sub-standard, insipid liquids passed off as beer. We’re proud to finally be established in the Midlands as it’s an area with such a rich brewing history and we hope our new bar will get the disillusioned falling in love with great tasting beer all over again.”
