This is the 7th consecutive year that Brewdog has made it into the Fast Track 100 ranking, although it has since slipped in the ranking (the brewer were in the top 10 in 2016). Launched by co-founders James Watt and Martin Dickie in 2007, it has opened nearly 60 bars in locations as far afield as Brazil and Japan.

Despite facing backlashes from a series of controversial publicity stunts over the past three years, the company has seen record sales growth and expanded its offering to not only include global bars, but also international breweries and even a craft beer-themed hotel. The company told its shareholders in April that it even plans to float on the New York Stock Exchange by 2020.

The judges noted the now-global business was valued at £1 billion in April 2017.
