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.

The craft beer revolution sails west as BrewDog drops anchor at Bristol

BrewDog Bristol will be the maverick brewer’s ninth craft beer bar.

  • BrewDog, Scotland’s largest independent brewery has today officially opened BrewDog Bristol
  • It is their ninth craft beer bar, opened in response to a ‘groundswell of craft beer fans’ in the city
  • Located at 58 Baldwin Street, the new bar was opened by BrewDog cofounder James Watt, who gave a nod to Bristol’s buccaneering heritage by arriving at BrewDog Bristol on a makeshift pirate ship
  • With a capacity of 90, BrewDog Bristol will not only showcase BrewDog’s own ales, but also draught beers from breweries all over the world, including Mikkeller, Evil Twin, The Kernel, Flying Dog, Rouge and Ballast Point
  • Cheese and meat platters will be available, with beer pairing advice from well trained bar staff, along with locally sourced scotch eggs and pies
  • BrewDog Bristol is the second bar opening from the brewery this month, with plans to open Birmingham and Leeds before January
  • BrewDog opened their Shoreditch bar last week by projecting themselves naked onto Houses of Parliament 


BrewDog co-founder James Watt commented:

“Bristol has always been a prime target for a BrewDog bar; there has always been a solid community of craft beer fans and we’ve been regularly lobbied by them on our blog to choose Bristol as our next location.”

“Since the days of buccaneering pirates, Bristol is a city with a great heritage of anti-establishment thinking and BrewDog Bristol is more than another bar; it’s a bastion for the craft beer revolution in the West Country. This is a call to arms for those in Bristol looking to shake the dust from the drinks scene and reject the tasteless, apathetic, mass produced lagers that decorate the majority of bars in the city.”

James Watt continued:

“We have lit the fuse on a revolution that has already redefined beer in the UK, with Bristol the latest city to embrace mutiny and reject the mainstream mega corporations currently ruling the drinks industry with an iron fist stuffed full of marketing cash.”
