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.

James Watt, cofounder of BrewDog commented:

“We have always been huge fans of Stone Brewing Co. and have been lucky enough to make some epic collaboration beers with them. They have always been an inspiration to us, having been frontline ambassadors of the craft beer revolution in the USA for almost 20 years. This partnership is a natural extension of the passion we share for getting people excited about craft beer and shaking up the status quo. With this new deal, the flourishing UK craft beer scene just got even more exciting.”

James continued:

“We are already in talks with lots more awesome breweries from around the world, and have big plans to set up a global distribution network, supplying the UK with the best craft beers on the planet. We already source the most exciting craft beers for our own bars, and this new distribution division is the opportunity to take that to the next level.”

James added:

“We always strive to make other people as passionate about craft beer as we are. Not just from BrewDog , but from all great craft breweries. More people brewing, serving and drinking craft beer from a range of killer breweries can only be a good thing. Everything we do across our entire business, from our brewery to our bars, and now our new import and distribution division is a testament to that mission.”

Greg Koch, CEO and Co-founder of Stone Brewing Co. commented:

“In addition to being our craft beer compatriots, I count James and Martin as great friends and this new distribution agreement is a great opportunity for us to work together. The British beer scene is about to get an influx of our signature bold, flavourful and aggressively styled ales. With a team educated and passionate about craft beer, along with refrigeration through every step of the distribution process, we know the BrewDog team will deliver our beer to fans at the peak of freshness.”
