BrewDog was established in 2007 as a private limited company with only £30 000. It was established by friends James Watt and Martin Dickie, who also are directors of the company nowadays.

They took a loan from a bank in the beginning of the year 2007 and the first bottle of beer was already brewed in April 2007.
In October 2009 BrewDog was re-registered as a public limited company and its first initial public offering was in January 2010 and it generated cash of £640 000.
