BrewDog is redefining the UK craft beer scene as you know it... Back in 2007, James and Martin said sayonara to industrially brewed lagers and stuffy ales and – after brewing their first batch of beer in James' garage – set about making hardcore beers full time. Both only 24 at the time, James and Martin leased a building, got some scary bank loans and spent all their money on stainless steel. Luckily the gamble paid off and after just three years, BrewDog has managed to kick-start the UK craft beer revolution and with wave upon wave of cool, contemporary and progressive beers continues to challenge perceptions of beer and brewing the world over.
