BrewDog to keep its Broch plant open

Brewing superstars BrewDog have announced that they will keep their Fraserburgh plant open for business, dubbing it as their ‘home of innovation’.

The company, started by local lads Martin Dickie and James Watt, recently moved to a state of the art brewery in Ellon after five years of world beating brewing in Fraserburgh.

The company have this month announced, however, that they have no intentions to close down their Fraserburgh site.

Announcing the news online, BrewDog say the Fraserburgh plant “will be our own little brewing laboratory where we can let our imaginations run even more wild than they usually do.”

Keeping the Fraserburgh plant open, they add, will allow the company to continue to brew in small batches.

“Beers we have lined up to brew at the Fraserburgh site include house beers for all our bars which are to be designed and brewed by the individual bar teams, even more barrel aged beers and we are also going to start experimenting with sour beers and wild yeast strains too.

“Brewing tiny batches, pushing the boundaries and [challenging] people’s perceptions of beer is intrinsic to everything we believe in.

“We are really excited about brewing some awesome small batch beers in Fraserburgh in 2013,” the announcement said.
