COMING SOON: BREWDOG AUSTRALIA
Back in April, James and Martin made a series of announcements from the stage of the AECC in Aberdeen as part of their #PunkAGM2017 business update. All of them – and every one of our plans for the rest of the year – are built on a single foundation. We live or die by the quality of the beer in your glass. And in a week when Ohio-brewed Punk IPA hits the taps of craft beer bars in the US, we have another huge announcement relating to super-fresh BrewDog craft beer.
People of Australia – we are heading down under to build a brewery for you.
This is more than a statement of intent; it is a promise. Just as our US Equity Punk community are now enjoying home-brewed BrewDog beer, our Australian shareholders and customers will be able to do the same. We are committed to shortening the distance between ourselves and the people who enjoy our beer – and if that distance happens to be ten thousand miles? No worries.
We are now looking for the perfect site for BrewDog Australia – and you can help.
We’re after a kick-ass location for our brewhouse, and are narrowing our eyes on two areas on the east coast growing at lightning speed – Newcastle and Brisbane. We love the vibe of these cities and think either would be perfect for a BrewDog brewery/brewpub. If you know of somewhere suitable we can rock up to in these areas – or elsewhere in Australia – then we have the perfect person for you to get in touch with!
We’re hugely excited to welcome Zarah Prior back into the BrewDog family to spearhead our exploration of her home country. She will be hitting the streets of her native Oz in search of our new home, so before she checked in for that day-long flight we caught up with her in Ellon to get the lowdown on possible sites we are considering for BrewDog Australia. If you know of somewhere that fits the bill below – drop her an email on firstname.lastname@example.org!
- An existing industrial site to redevelop with a built up facility of 2,000 - 4,000m²
- Or, a plot of land able to accommodate a build of that size with room for expansion
- A location with a great local community actively promoting urban renewal
- Councils or local authorities looking for new investment in their area
- Something unique that will make our brewery and taproom truly awesome!
If you can see yourself being neighbours with our amazing team at BrewDog Australia HQ – then put together the details on the specifics and fire an email through to Zarah. It could be the most important click of the mouse you ever make!
Building a brewery in Australia is a huge undertaking for us, but we love the passion of the people there and want nothing more than to reward them for looking out for us from the other side of the world. Super-fresh BrewDog beer brewed in their backyard.
Australia – where should we pitch up?
