North-east craft beer firm BrewDog will host its Annual General Meeting (AGM) at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre’s GE Oil & Gas Arena this Saturday (April 9).

This will be the fifth year that the brewers have held their AGM at the AECC, growing the meeting from an attendance of 2,000 to an expected 6,000.

Craft beer and music lovers are due to descend on the venue once again to hear all the latest news from company Captains James Watt and Martin Dickie whilst being entertained by some of Scotland’s leading music acts.

The local craft beer firm, which began its journey in Fraserburgh in 2007, is an alternative small business owned by thousands of people who love craft beer through its share platform; Equity For Punks, which first launched in 2010 giving fans the chance to proudly own a piece of the success.

Since the platform launched the firm has recruited an army of more than 35,000 Equity Punks and raised more than £20million.

The latest of the platforms, Equity Punks IV, opened in April 2015 raising £15million so far and is due to close this month, making this AGM the ultimate way to end the world’s most successful crowd funding venture to date.

The company states that the Punk Army “are our shareholders, our friends, our community and the heart and soul of our business.”

James Watt, co-founder of BrewDog said: “I’m psyched to be back at AECC this year for #PunkAGM2016.

“It’s a great space and we’ve packed it to the rafters with epic food vendors, awesome bands and some of the most incredible craft breweries from across planet Earth. Bring it on!”
