BrewDog’s new headquarters in Ellon, Aberdeenshire will boast a 300-hectolitre brew house, a new three-storey office and the addition of 20 new tanks.

The details have emerged as a £5 million contract to build the site was handed to Paisley-based construction firm Barr Construction.

Last year BrewDog had already expanded its facility in Ellon, adding new fermentation capacity, building new office buildings and its on-site bar, DogTap.

The large steel frame building will contain the 300-hectolitre  production and warehouse areas. The 20 new tanks will be located at the first floor level of the brew-house.

Launching in 2007 as a hobby by James Watt and Martin Dickie, the firm saw profits soar by 69% to £4.9 million last year. In March, BrewDog revealed that they’ve received a £1.5 million Regional Selective Assistance (RSA) award which the firm aims to mobilize into investment of over £20 million and the creation of 130 new jobs.

The brewer was also named by the London Stock Exchange as one of the 1,000 most inspiring companies in the UK.

BrewDog co-founder Watt said: “The next 12 months are going to be a whirlwind of intense and exciting growth for BrewDog, and we’re looking forward to working with the Barr Construction guys on the much needed expansion of our site. Despite continuously investing in growing our production capacity, we still cannot make all the BrewDog beers that craft beer fans around planet Earth want to drink! The new warehouse and tank farm will enable us to meet this demand and get more awesome beer into more people’s paws.”
