Beer was never meant to be bland, tasteless and apathetic.
At BrewDog we are setting the record straight.
We are committed to making the highest quality beers with the finest fresh natural ingredients.
Our beers are in no way commercial or mainstream.
We do not merely aspire to the proclaimed heady heights of conformity through neutrality and blandness.
We are unique and individual.
A beacon of non-conformity in a increasingly monotone corporate desert.
We are proud to be an intrepid David in a desperate ocean of insipid Goliaths.
We are proud to be an alternative.
BrewDog commenced brewing in April 2007 in Fraserburgh on Scotland's rugged North East coastline.
Our artisan brewery is commited to making the highest quality traditional hand crafted ales all with contemporary innovative twists. Our beers are all hand brewed in small batches with a variety of speciality Scottish malt and imported hops.
We have a 10 Barrel or 1600L Brewhouse where half a ton of malt is used to make a 1600 litre batch. The malt is added to the hot water in the mash tun. The wort (unfermented beer) is then transferred to the kettle where is it boiled for 90 minutes. During the boil hops are added for bitterness and aroma.
We have 8 Cylindro-Conical uni-tanks, imported from Italy. These tanks act as fermentation tanks where the yeast turns the sugars in the beer into alcohol. After the fermentation these tanks are also used to condition and mature the beer. All our beers then go through a two stage filtration process before arriving at our bottling machine. The beer is then lightly carbonated which allows the flavours to come through before being bottled, capped, labelled and packaged. We are sure you will have as much fun drinking them as we had making them for you!
