North-east craft beer giant BrewDog has announced it will hold its first European AGM this September in Berlin.
The announcement was made today at the Ellon-based firm’s 2019 AGM at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC).
The new event will take place on September 7 in the German capital.
It comes as the business also announced it has acquired a brewery and tap room in the Mariendorf neighbourhood of Berlin, which it will take ownership of on May 1.
A statement on the firm’s website said: “Once we reopen, we are looking forward to holding a huge opening party, as well as hosting an epic European AGM for our Equity Punks there later in 2019 and also making Berlin the next destination for BrewDog Airlines.”
In 2018 the company reported a 55% growth in turnover, shipped 136 million beers around the world and recorded a total of 97,030 shareholders – known as Equity Punks.
Other plans highlighted during today’s AGM include a new brewery and tap room in Australia, along with opening new bars in:
- Manchester Outpost
- Alicante airport
