Supporting Independent Businesses since day one
BrewDog Kickstart Collective
Independent outlets exist at the heart of the UK economy, with small businesses creating over half of total private sector employment in the UK. For those who own and operate a pub, bar or bottleshop, there have never been more uncertain and concerning times.
At BrewDog, we have supported independent businesses in hospitality since day one.
And just as importantly, we are very grateful for how those businesses supported us as we grew over the years. We could not have built BrewDog into the business that it is today, without that support. Therefore, at this difficult time, we are announcing the BrewDog Kickstart Collective, to help independent bars, pubs and bottleshops navigate the months ahead.
Benefits & Support
Any independent bar, pub or bottleshop can apply to benefit from the BrewDog Kickstart Collective, and the first 500 who do so, will receive the following:
We’ll give your business £250 of BrewDog beer to help with the re-stocking of your venue and ensure your fridges are full before it reopens
Access for your teams to online beer training sessions from one of our awesome Certified Cicerone beer sommeliers.
A free login to a live webinar on the BrewDog response to the Covid crisis, and our approach to the re-boot of hospitality, led by COO David McDowall.
A discount card for each member of their teams to use in BrewDog bars once we re-open
Downloadable guidance on our approach to social distancing, marketing and relaunch of our bars, safety of team and customers, and changes to our operations routines and practices.
Protecting UK Hospitality
We hope that, in some small way, this programme of support will give some of them a better chance of surviving, and in turn help protect the diverse, unique and creative hospitality industry in the UK, that we are so proud to be a part of.
