    How does BrewDoggery differ from BrewDogging?

    Ohh, the accompanying stock picture of handpumps of real ale will get under their skins. I wonder if that was accidental...?

    I really don't understand the Brewdog business model. Why not Britpop or Rave beer?
    The Punk label represents rebellion, but the short lived Punk music movement was over 35 years ago which to me puts it squarely in the "Dad Rock" arena.

    While I think that there Hardcore IPA bottles (maybe brewed by Thwaites?) in the guise of Tesco Finest American IPA is an absolutely superb bottled beer, Wild Horses wouldn't tempt me into one of their bars.

    So the big question is what happens when the bright young things that currently go to their bars grow up and realise that a night in the local Spoons or watching Countryfile with a stack of Banks's bitter from Tesco is a much cheaper option.

    As I noted in the Oakwell Brewery thread, the history of microbreweries is littered with examples of ones that have have placed too much emphasis on buying up pubs rather than concentrating on the brewery. In the case of Oakwell I suggested that they had made a poor choice of pubs to buy (I'm sure the Jockey from Shameless was in there somewhere), along with leaving their beer range in a timewarp (a mild, a cooking bitter and a "Best" bitter).

    In the case of Brewdog what happens then they are no longer "Too Cool For School"?
    I'm alarmed (although not entirely surprised) that they are already using Thwaites for contract brewing. I suspect that the long term aim of the Brewdog owners may be to sell out and walk off into the sunset with a stash of cash.

    It will only get to them if there's some publicity mileage to be gained from it,

    Alternatively, both involve the over-exposure of arseholes!
