BrewDog officially opens new brewery22nd January, 2013 by Andy Young
Scottish craft brewer BrewDog has opened its new £7m brewery in Aberdeenshire, which will see the company able to produce six million bottles of beer a month.
More than £2m of the money for the new brewery came from “Equity Punk” investors, as the brewery invited fans of the beer to become shareholders in the new project.
After spending five years at its original brewery at Fraserburgh, the new facility will see BrewDog focus on improving the quantity and quality of its beer.
Co-founder Martin Dickie told STV: “It’s a huge improvement over the equipment we have in Fraserburgh, it’s a £7m investment here in Ellon, so it allows us to brew a lot more beer, but at the same time allows us to improve the quality of our beer too.”
