BrewDog, the Scotland-based multinational brewery and pub chain recently completed acquisition of a taproom and brewery in Berlin from Stone Brewing, the San-Diego based craft beer company. The acquisition has reportedly been made with a purpose of raising the eminence of craft beer in Germany.
Sources close to the matter report that the site is in Mariendorf neighborhood in Berlin and the facility has a 100hl brewhouse, a 10hl pilot brewing system, a taproom as well as a beer garden.
According to reports, Stone Brewing has worked with BrewDog for a collaborative beer at BrewDog’s original site in Fraserburgh, Scotland. BrewDog made an agreement to import Stone Brewing beers in UK. Under the Berlin agreement, the place will continue the preparation of Stone Brewing beers.
Greg Koch, co-founder and executive chairman, Stone Brewing was reported to say that the project at Berlin proved to be much more than Stone Brewing had bargained for and too far away from San Diego to continue operations. He added that Scotland is much closer to Berlin than San Diego is and therefore operations will be comparatively easier for BrewDog.
According to sources, BrewDog co-founder James Watt was reported to say that they are enthusiastic on becoming a part of Germany’s craft beer movement and the entire German-beer scene besides becoming a part of the Mariendorf community.
Watt was reported to say that beer, people and community have been the fundamentals of their business and intend to focus on the same in Berlin.
According to reliable sources, BrewDog launched Berlin Craft Collective in which the firm will admit complete access to its 10hl pilot system to Berlin’s independent craft brewers with an aim to make the new brewery a hub for the German craft beer movement.
