The Scottish brewer and pub operator won Scottish Brewery of the Year and Best Business Initiative at the annual awards on Sunday (11 May).
The news comes 24 months after ‘Trophygate’, when global drinks firm Diageo, sponsor of the 2012 Bar Operator of the Year category, stripped BrewDog of the award by forcing the BII to change the judges’ decision at the last minute.
The award was given to another company which refused to accept it as it had ‘BrewDog’ engraved on the trophy as the winner.
The list of 2014 winners in full is:
Boda Bars – Bar Operator of the Year
Edinburgh University Students’ Association – Late Night Operator of the Year
Fuller Thomson – Scottish Training Award
Tickety Boos Dundee – Social Responsibility Award
BrewDog – Best Business Initiative
BrewDog – Scottish Brewery of the Year
Whiski Rooms – Whisky Bar of the Year
The Scran & Scallie – Food Operator of the Year
Caroline Mair, The Holyrood 9A – Bar Personality of the Year
