Brewdog has announced the re-launch of its spirit beer ‘Bourbon Baby’.

The Scottish brewer originally released the beer - which was first brewed as an experiment to determine how lower ABV session ales develop in cask - back in 2014.

BrewDog recently polled customers about their favourite previous BrewDog beers with an eye on revisiting them - and Bourbon Baby coming in as the 6th most popular.

The beer went on tap at BrewDog’s bars across the country on Thursday (9 June) after a surprise announcement on the company’s blog. It is also available from their online store.


BrewDog said: “This particular beer has so many fans that it consistently polled near the top of our #ReBrewDog online ballot. For that reason alone, it is high time that Bourbon Baby’s legion of admirers have the chance to get reacquainted with our baby Scotch Ale.

“Expect a fusillade of vanilla, spiced fruit and oaky, woody notes interplaying with deeply resonant chocolate and a cinder toffee backdrop. And all of that comes in at under 6% ABV.”

Earlier this month, Brewdog announced the inception of its own ‘beer school’​ - ninety minute courses across its UK bars that will be hosted by Ciceron-trained BrewDog bar staff and will focus on developing tasting notes and matching beer and food.


In late May, the company was warned it may face legal action from Wolverhampton Wanderers​ football club over the branding of its new spirits arm Lone Wolf.

The club said it was ‘furious’ when the branding was unveiled – arguing it was too similar to its own badge and would ‘confuse’ fans. BrewDog abstained from commenting on the matter.
