Growth is on the cards for brewer

A CRAFT brewery in Aberdeen is set for expansion after securing a £400,000 investment.

The backing, from Southern Cross Beverages, will allow Fierce Beer to double its brewing capacity and open a new 13,000 sq ft brewery with its own taproom and bottle shop.

Dave Grant (above), managing director of the brewery, said: “We are very excited to be able to plan ahead for future growth and expansion to meet demand for our beers, and also move towards in-house canning.”

Fierce produces a core range of ten beers as well as a range of seasonal and collaborative brews.
