Scottish craft brewer BrewDog has announced that it will offer a Punk IPA on-the-house for the individuals in the UK after lockdown ends in the country.

BrewDog noted that individuals must sign up on the company website for Punk IPA or Punk AF at any one of its bars in the UK, as well as in Germany, France, Spain and Ireland once they reopen.

BrewDog co-founder James Watt said: “We are in the midst of the biggest crisis to have faced society in living memory. Like always, we believe in the power of our community and that good beer has always brought people together.

“At BrewDog, we have never underestimated the power of community, and its ability to ensure we don’t feel alone even in times of trouble. We have to stand together now more than ever.

“Looking to the future, we want to make sure that when this is all over whether you’re in Aberdeen or Berlin you can celebrate with friends and family, over a beer. Until then, stay home. Stay safe, and look after each other, see you on the other side.”

The company added that the people must be of legal drinking age in their country and will be issued with a QR code to be taken into their local BrewDog bar in return for a beer.

Last November, BrewDog opened A$30m ($20.4m) production brewery and taproom in Brisbane, Queensland.

The DogTap Brisbane is reported to be BrewDog’s first in the Southern Hemisphere.

To support and encourage local Queensland brewers, the brewery and taproom will also feature local beer brands such as Range Brewing, Balter, Currumbin Valley Brewery, Black Hops, Aether and Brouhaha.
