Craft beer producer BrewDog has acquired Stone Brewing’s manufacturing facility in Berlin, Germany.

Located in the Mariendorf neighbourhood, the facility features a 100hl brewhouse, a 10hl pilot brewing system, a taproom and beer garden.

With this acquisition, BrewDog intends to enhance its craft beer presence in the German market.

The facility will also continue to brew Stone Brewing beers following the deal.

Stone Brewing co-founder and executive chairman Greg Koch said: “Ultimately our project in Berlin turned out to be a bit too aggressively big and bold, and a little too far from home, for Stone to continue to operate. It’s also a much shorter flight from Scotland to Berlin than it is from San Diego. By a lot.

“We are really excited to become a small part of the craft beer movement in Germany.”

“We wish our friends at Brewdog every success with the Mariendorf gasworks property. We loved it and brought it to life, and we know they’ll do the same in their own way. They will do great things. And from time to time, as we’ve done in the past, we’ll do some of those great things together.”

Stone Brewing previously worked with BrewDog to create beer at the Scottish firm’s original site in Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire.

In 2015, BrewDog signed an agreement to import Stone Brewing beers into the UK.

BrewDog co-founder James Watt said: “We are really excited to become a small part of the craft beer movement in Germany and the German beer scene overall and we are also really excited to be part of the Mariendorf community.

“Beer, people and community have always been the foundations of our business and that is what we will be focusing on in Berlin too as we look to share our passion for craft beer with as many people as we can.”

In March last year, BrewDog acquired Draft House’s UK estate, which comprised 14 pubs across London and the South East.
