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.

Craft beer revolution hits Glasgow with third BrewDog bar

Scotland’s largest independent brewery, BrewDog has today opened the doors of its third craft beer bar in Glasgow, Scotland. Situated at 1397 Argyle Street, BrewDog Glasgow represents the latest step in ambitious growth plans from the brewery, having already established successful bars in Aberdeen and Edinburgh. Following the distinctive utilitarian and minimalist interior design showcased in the other BrewDog bars, the new venue is the biggest yet with a capacity of 120, offering beers from all over the globe. The company intends to open two further bars before the close of the year and at least five more in 2012.

  • The bar location was discovered through crowd sourcing
  • BrewDog bars were a key catalyst for the huge response to the share issue launched this month  from which over £500k was raised in just 4 days
  • BrewDog Glasgow has a capacity of around 120 with 14 draught taps and stock beers from a range of breweries from around the world
  • Gym flooring on the walls, charity shop sourced sofas and a reclaimed brick bar all add to the BrewDog interior aesthetic
  • Although the bar has no dedicated kitchen, cheese and meat plates are designed to complement specific beer styles and hop pizzas will be available.

James Watt, co-founder of BrewDog commented:

“The speed at which we have reached three BrewDog bars proves that the craft beer revolution is gathering pace. Our mission is to make people as passionate about beer as we are and our network of bars not only poses a threat to the insipid yellow mainstream lagers that populate the on trade, it provides an alternative to the drab, soulless, unimaginative bars that peddle them.”

James Watt continued:

“We always want to shorten the distance as much as possible between ourselves and the people who drink our beers, so letting them take charge of the BrewDog Glasgow location was an obvious route to take. It’s not the first time we have consulted our fans on key business decisions and it certainly won’t be the last.”
