Brewdog slams ‘global beer mega corporations’ following Camden Town Brewery acqu

Following the acquisition of Camden Town Brewery by AB InBev, independent brewer Brewdog has condemned ‘global beer mega corporations’ in what it says has been a bad year for craft beer.

In a blog post on Brewdog’s website, founders James Watt and Martin Dickie bemoan the number of independent brewery acquisitions made in 2015 by ‘the ones who destroyed, bastardised and commoditized beer over the last 50 years’.

The Camden Town Brewery acquisition seems to have been the catalyst for the post and the Brewdog founders have called a meeting of its Equity Punk investors to propose an amendment to its articles of association to read:

37.5 “The Board will exercise its discretion granted in Article 37.1 to refuse to register any transfer of any Certificated Share to a transferee who is a monolithic purveyor of bland industrial beer.”

In a tweet on Monday, James Watt also announced that Brewdog would no longer sell Camden Brewery in its bars, as they do not stock AB InBev beers.
