About Us

We love great craft beer. We want everyone to be as passionate about it as we are – and our central team are vital in this mission. Every single person in our team can shape our future for the better, whether that’s for our people, planet or our incredible beer. Because we expect great things from you, we give great things back. 

HOP STOCK | We believe in sharing our success with our crew and have a unique Hopstock benefit for our salaried team. We will award approximately $30,000 in shares per year – worth around $120,000 per person based on our current valuation at the end of the period. That means you share in our success, and if we grow strongly, your stake could be worth even more. We win together.

UNICORN FUND | Via our ground-breaking Unicorn Fund, we give away 10% of our profits, to our amazing crew members, every single year. We wouldn’t be able to do it without you so it’s only right we share the success together.

Retirement (401k): BrewDog wants to make sure you, your family, and pups are covered long-term. Safe Harbor Matching Contributions: BrewDog matches 100% of your elected deferral, up to 6% of your compensation.

4 WEEK SABBATICAL| After every 5 years here you will receive an additional 4 weeks off to spend it doing whatever you want.

STAFF DISCOUNT | 25% off in bars, 30% off online and 50% off BrewDog Merch to fill up your fridge and your wardrobe* (*don’t put your hoody in the fridge though)

BEER TRAINING | We love beer and we want you to love beer too, so we’ll support you through the internationally- recognized Cicerone qualifications, so you can love it almost as much as we do. We’ll also pay you more per hour for each level you pass.

AND A LOT MORE | Okay, deep breath… Full time employees will receive enhanced sick pay, healthcare, life assurance, high street retail discounts, employee assistance programs, enhanced family friendly policies around maternity and paternity leave, additional holiday days per year, pawternity leave, DE+I and crew forum groups and a “shifty” crew beer/beer allowance.

We’re also the world’s first carbon negative beer business. We’re focused on making sure that we, and future generations, have a planet to brew great beer on. Our industry leading techniques help us create and deliver unique beer whilst doing our bit (and others’) for the environment.
