James Watt, co-founder of BrewDog commented:

“2014 was an epic year for BrewDog and the craft beer industry as a whole. Not only did we continue to grow at breakneck speed and secure more footholds of craft beer awesomeness all around the world, but we were able to improve processes and efficiencies to ensure we deliver the optimum flavour experience every time.”

“Our growth has shown that with a healthy disregard for the impossible you can achieve anything.

“When we launched in 2007, we never expected to be where we are today, but our success continues to prove that there is an insatiable thirst for great craft beer, and a huge opportunity for businesses doing things differently to thrive in challenging economic times.”

James continued: “Our mission has always been to make other people as passionate about great craft beer as we are. The more people making, serving and drinking amazing craft beer, the better.

“The BrewDog Development Fund is about putting our money where our mouth is and helping new breweries thrive.”

“BrewDog is committed to being the best employer.”
