Our Story

from the uk to the usa

The story of BrewDog began in 2007. In a derelict shed in an industrial park in Northeast Scotland, BrewDog was founded by best friends and home-brewers James Watt and Martin Dickie. James and Martin had a very simple mission when they founded BrewDog plc: to make other people as passionate about great craft beer as they are. As a company, BrewDog plc focuses on two key things: its beer and its people. BrewDog plc not only wants to brew the best beers in the world, it also strives to be the best company to work for in the world. BrewDog USA has inherited those same traits and qualities.



BrewDog plc was the largest and fastest-growing craft brewer in Europe and is the only company to be named as one of the fastest-growing food & drinks companies in the UK for 7 consecutive years (Sunday Times Fast Track 100). In addition to brewing beer and prior to the coronavirus pandemic, BrewDog plc also operated more than 90 bars, with 49 in the UK and flagship sites internationally such as BrewDog Berlin, BrewDog Tokyo, BrewDog Brisbane, BrewDog Barcelona and BrewDog Sao Paulo. While most of these bars are presently temporarily closed due to the pandemic, BrewDog plc plans to reopen most if not all of them once conditions allow.


For the first 12 months of its existence, BrewDog plc was just two humans and one dog. The fledgling enterprise started to grow quickly as more customers wanted to stock its beers. By 2009, BrewDog was the largest independent brewery in Scotland and was already exporting its beers to 15 countries in Europe and selling to major retail chains in the UK.

Prior to the coronavirus pandemic, BrewDog plc employed more than 1500 passionate people, shipped its beer to more than 60 countries around the world, owns and/or operates more than 90 craft beer bars and also owned one of the world’s most advanced craft breweries from its base in Aberdeenshire in Northeast Scotland. Its flagship beer, Punk IPA was the leading craft beer in the UK and Europe. BrewDog plc has a community of more than 120,000 investors.

Offering Perks

AMERICAN success

BrewDog USA Inc. is the American arm of the international craft brewery, BrewDog. The founders first launched BrewDog plc in 2007, and BrewDog USA was incorporated in 2015, with its first beer released in June 2017. Established to brew and distribute craft beer, as well as operate brewpubs in the United States, BrewDog USA is building on BrewDog plc’s success as Europe’s leading craft brewer, by turning its attention stateside. We are combining Europe’s most successful craft brewery with the world’s most explosive craft beer market. Expect fireworks.

BrewDog USA’s Ohio HQ is located on a 42-acre site, consisting of an initial 100,000 square foot brewery building, including the DogTap taproom and restaurant, an outdoor patio with additional customer space, a take-out beer store, a visitor center offering tours on-site, an interactive Craft Beer Museum, The DogHouse craft beer hotel, and our Overworks sour facility.

Our Traction

built for expansion

Through December 31, 2019, BrewDog USA, Inc.’s revenues were more than $27,000,000 based on our internal accounting. While the coronavirus pandemic has forced us to close our U.S. bars and our hotel, we are hopeful that as things return to normal, we will reopen and continue the growth that we were experiencing before the unexpected outbreak changes things for everyone.


All of the equipment at BrewDog USA’s brewery is designed with expansion in mind. The initial brewhouse can support an annual capacity of 426,000 barrels by adding more fermentation tanks to the system, and the building has been designed to take a second brewhouse when we fully utilize the capacity of the initial brewhouse. We will use all that we have learned at BrewDog plc’s European site about growing production in a craft brewery to maximize efficiencies and minimize equipment costs when growing our American operation.


BrewDog USA’s team in America consisted of nearly 200 people across production, sales, marketing, finance, and operations before the pandemic forced us to cut back, but we still employ more than 140 people. BrewDog USA has the ambition to be the best U.S. company to work for (ever) and offers a raft of inspired benefits to support its team.


Included in this is “the unicorn fund” in which BrewDog USA plans to share 10% of its profits with employees of the Company every year, and a further 10% is donated to charities chosen by the Company’s staff and Equity Punk investors through the BrewDog Foundation. BrewDog also pioneered “pawternity leave” allowing staff to take a week’s paid leave when they get a new dog.

Our Community

craft beer-obsessed punk

The growth of BrewDog plc has been fueled and funded by its radical crowdfunding model, which first launched in 2009 as BrewDog plc tore up convention, turned the traditional business model on its head and launched “Equity for Punks”, giving thousands of people a front-row seat to the craft beer revolution.

BrewDog plc holds the world record for the biggest online equity-based crowdfunding campaigns and, to date, has raised in excess of £69 million via Equity for Punks, building a community of more than 120,000 investors.

In 2016, BrewDog USA launched its first crowdfunding raise in America under Regulation A as part of the JOBS Act, which closed on July 28, 2017. The first Equity for Punks USA raised more than $7,000,000 from more than 8,000 investors. This was followed by a second Regulation A round in 2018 which raised more than $2,200,000 from more than 6,200 investors.


Our Operations

BrewDog bars

In 2010, BrewDog plc opened BrewDog Aberdeen, its first craft beer bar, and we have now opened BrewDog bars all over the planet. BrewDog plc has been named as one of the fastest-growing companies in the UK consecutively for the last seven years. BrewDog plc’s bar division rapidly grew to more than 90 sites, with 49 in the UK and flagship sites internationally such as BrewDog Berlin, BrewDog Tokyo, BrewDog Barcelona, and BrewDog Sao Paulo.

As in Europe, BrewDog bars were a key part of BrewDog USA’s operation. Our first BrewDog bar in America launched onsite at our brewery in Columbus in April 2017. DogTap was maxed out from launch day and has proven to be an immediate success in the vibrant local craft beer bar scene in Columbus. With tours of our brewing facility on-site, a self-guided interactive Craft Beer Museum and a wide range of craft beer as well as a full menu of incredible food paired perfectly to the beers on offer (from both BrewDog and local guest breweries), the bar was an outpost for an amazing beer just outside of Columbus.


Our combined brewing and retailing approach with a national ambition is a new business model in the U.S. craft beer industry. We use this vertical integration to accelerate our growth, bolster our profitability and build deep and lasting connections with our customers. At BrewDog, we aim to shorten the distance as much as possible between ourselves and the people who enjoy our beers. Our BrewDog bars enable us to do just that.


Our Future

go america!

While these were our plans prior to the coronavirus pandemic, we are still hopeful that if stay-at-home orders are lifted and we are able to resume operations as they were before the pandemic, we will be able to achieve some or all of these goals in a reasonable timeframe.
