BrewDog to build new brewery
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.
