SCOTTISH craft brewer Brewdog has announced plans for further expansion after a fifth consecutive year of growth.

The business, founded in 2007 by Martin Dickie and James Watt, claims to be on track to report a turnover of £19 million for 2013, and is currently recruiting for a number of sales and marketing positions.
Brewdog has also announced a further £5m expansion to its Ellon brewery, as well as plans to open nine new bars across the UK and in Sao Paulo, New Delhi and Berlin. “Sales of craft beer are growing and will continue to grow, demonstrating the global thirst for beer with real soul,” said Watt.
