Bored with industrially brewed lagers and stuffy ales, co-founders Martin and James decided to brew their own beers in 2007. They some loans, spent all their money on stainless steel, and started making some hardcore craft beers.
They brewed tiny batches, filled bottles by hand, and sold their beers at local markets and out of the back of their beat up old van.
Their biggest mission was to make other people as passioinate about great craft beer as they were. And that is still their biggest mission today.
Fast-forward to today where BrewDog employs over 750 people and brews more than 214,000 BBLs of beer each year.
