Aberdeenshire, Scotland


In 2006 James Watt and Martin Dickie, two old school friends, “bored of the industrially brewed lagers and stuffy ales that dominated the UK market” and inspired by breweries on the West Coast of America like Stone Brewing and Ballast Point, brewed their first batch of Punk IPA from a garage near Aberdeen.

Soon after, they scraped together ten grand in savings, blagged another thirty from the local council and set about building arguably the most successful new brewery the UK has seen since the industrial revolution.
