BrewDog “open-sources” its beer recipes

BrewDog has released DIY Dog, a collection of every single one of its recipes, in celebration of its home brewing roots, and as inspiration to the rapidly growing and inclusive craft beer community.

Detailed recipes of over 200 beers, from the original Punk IPA through to BrewDog’s newest headliner, Jet Black Heart, have been released to beer fans.

The recipes have all been scaled down to home brew volumes, five gallons or 20 litres, to inspire and support the next wave of craft brewers.

This open-source home brewing back catalogue is an unprecedented move by a brewery, disclosing Intellectual Property in the form of recipes for the likes of Hello My Name is Vladimir, Hops Kill Nazis, Black Tokyo Horizon, AB:04, Jack Hammer and Anarchist Alchemist to name a few.

BrewDog co-founder, James Watt said “Many of the classic BrewDog beers were developed during our homebrewing days, and we still use a homebrewing 50L system to develop new beers and recipes. Home brewing is ingrained in our DNA, and is a cornerstone of the craft beer industry. We have always loved the sharing of knowledge, expertise and passion in the craft beer community and we wanted to take that spirit of collaboration to the next level with DIY Dog. The more people that home brew, the more craft breweries will pop up and help us in the fight against global mega beer corporations, making the future brighter for craft beer.”
