Craft beer giants BrewDog have been granted an occasional licence paving the way to open its latest north-east bar.
The Ellon-based brewery has been granted two separate occasional licences giving it permission to sell alcohol on site between May 4-31.
It is a temporary measure until the firm is granted a full licence at a later date.
Members of the Aberdeenshire Central Licensing Board heard the company was looking to open its bar on May 15.
BrewDog announced it was planning to move into the former Mitchell’s The Dairy tearoom on Market Place at its AGM in 2018.
