Brewed by BrewDog
The lads from up north of the wall (Hadrian’s, that is) burst onto the UK craft beer scene back in 2007 and rapidly become known as brewers of top-quality beers, challenging traditional British beery definitions. Their enthusiasm for creating innovative, highly-experimental beers is matched only by their penchant for in-your-face, irreverent marketing. If you don’t like it, who gives a s**t?
That aside, they do brew damn fine beer indeed. First encounter was with their omnipresent Punk IPA which – what with the hop punch that is Simcoe – is still one of our favourites of the style.
