Dundee brewery given green light

10 March, 2016

Dundee is in line to have its first brewery for 50 years after planning permission was granted to a new start-up.

Duncan Alexander and Mark Griffiths hope to have 71 Brewing up and running in a converted industrial warehouse in the city centre by October.

Former Sam Smith’s head brewer David Smith is overseeing installation of the 2,400-litre capacity plant.

The £650,000 project has secured funding from Scottish Enterprise, Regional Selective Assistance, the Scottish Investment Bank and private investors.

Alexander said: “There’s something in the water here that was justification enough for us to establish a brewery in Dundee, beyond the fact that I’m a very proud Dundonian and wanted the city to contribute to the great new beer revolution that is sweeping the country.”
