Plans to open a new pub in the town were announced at the firm’s annual general meeting in April, due to founders James Watt and Martin Dickie’s links with the area. The pub will open on the site of a former pub and nightclub that has been left vacant for five years, with the company intending to carry out a full refurbishment.
John Pascoe, Peterhead Business Improvement District chairman welcomed the project saying it was a positive move for the town. He said: “What it means in practical terms is the filling of a large end recently empty business premises on one of the main streets in the town centre.This has been a long term goal of the local beer industry innovators and I think was primarily due to shareholder interest in a Peterhead location.
“A new Brewdog bar will bring a quality food and drink offering in the town centre to compliment what we have already and what is planned for the future and I see this helping with such issues as the night-time economy and making Peterhead town centre a destination for good quality food and drink.”
Planning permission proposals for the new pub are subject to approval from Aberdeenshire Council.
