Irreverent craft brewery, BrewDog, today released DIY Dog 2017, the second iteration of the brewery’s annual homebrew bible, releasing every single one of BrewDog’s recipes past, present and future, scaled down to homebrew proportions; the 259 page archive also includes the recipes for all the beers BrewDog plans to make in 2017, meaning keen craft beer fans can try their hand at home before the official beers are even released.
The first DIY Dog caused waves in the craft beer industry in 2016 when it laid bare all of BrewDog’s back catalogue of boundary-pushing brews, prompting a step change in how intellectual property is viewed in the brewing industry. The initiative aims to inspire budding hop heads to immerse themselves in the sacred art of brewing.
The beer bible includes 23 experimental new recipes to try; BrewDog’s latest innovation, the high-velocity 22% ABV Hop Shot, and Cloudwater collaboration, New England IPA. Among the 2017 new release recipes, BrewDog has offered up the recipe of the first ever #HomeBrewDog competition winner’s concoction, a Caribbeaninspired stout named Tropic Thunder. Also making an appearance is kick-ass brew, Nitro Breakfast Stout and a small batch recipe for Vermont IPA V2.0 all ready for Hop Heads to get their teeth into. Each brew comes complete with a full ingredient list, volumes, methods, timings and food pairing suggestions.

Since 2007 BrewDog has been on a mission to make other people as passionate about great craft beer as we are. From the Headliner series, which includes bold, uncompromising pack leaders like the flagship Punk IPA, to the Amplified range (beer, but turned up to 11), BrewDog creates beer that blows people’s minds and has kick-started a revolution. Cofounders James Watt and Martin Dickie shook up the business world in 2010 with the launch of pioneering crowdfunding scheme Equity for Punks, an initiative that has seen the company raise £26m over four rounds, taking more money through crowdfunding than any other on record. The funds, and the army of punk shareholders (50,000) enabled the Scottish craft brewery to scale up without selling out. With over 48 global bar launches, export into 60 countries, and a brand new brewery in Ohio opening in 2017, BrewDog continues to take the craft beer revolution stratospheric, whilst continuing to push the boundaries, invest in people, put the beer first, and champion other small breweries in its venues.
