BrewDog to build new brewery

After all the recent controversy, we can all be pleased that BrewDog has announced it has won planning consent to build a new brewery that will permit it to increase production eight times.
Councillors have allowed BrewDog to relocate its operation from its Fraserburgh base to Potterton on the outskirts of Aberdeen. The move will allow the brewery to produce more than two million bottles of beer per month.
BrewDog co-foudner Martin Dickie said the "very exciting" project required a large site close to Aberdeen and good transport links. BrewDog hopes to use water from bore holes on the site and barley grown in local fields and will create renewable energy for power. The development will include a visitor centre that will attract tourists to the area.

I for one am delighted that these precocious, narcotic smoking ego-maniacs who do great harm to the entire brewing community are being allowed to build their new brewery.
I will happily buy you a beer (a BrewDog one) next time we meet, you just need to lighten up a little sometimes Roger.

What on earth are you talking about, Johnny Norfolk? That article has nothing to do with Japan. It's about Tokyo*, another BrewDog beer, being "banned" in the UK by the alcopop 'n' fizzy "larger" industry-association, the Portman Group. Except, as the article then reveals, it's not actually being banned at all (thankfully): rather, the Group are issuing a call to major retailers not to stock it. Which is completely irrelevant, since a) its only available on the brewery's website and from a couple of very specialist retailers who are unlikely to give a toss what PG say b) it's sold out. Do try to keep up. Literacy is a powerful tool. Do look into it.
