Forced to close bars from Sao Paulo to Tokyo during the first wave of the pandemic, BrewDog expanded online sales to US consumers and launched in Holland with an open-plan pub in Rotterdam. Valued at £1 billion in 2017, when it sold a 22 per cent stake to American private equity firm TSG Consumer Partners, it has breweries in Scotland, America, Germany, Australia and soon France. Exports hit £59.9 million in 2019 under co-founders James Watt and Martin Dickie, both 38.
