Founded in 2007 by James Watt and Martin Dickie, both 35, this Scottish brewer exports its craft beer to more than 60 countries and has opened 50 bars as far afield as Brazil and Japan. In 2017, it was valued at £1bn when US private equity firm TSG Consumer Partners bought a 22% stake for £213m. Overseas sales hit £21.6m that year. BrewDog’s latest crowdfunding campaign aims to raise up to £50m, which will help finance a £17m Australian brewery, set to open in 2019.
