Brewdog to shut six bars as its CEO launches scathing attack on ‘zombie government’


Sep 1, 2022

Pub chain BrewDog will close six outlets across the UK as its CEO launched a scathing attack on the “zombie government’s” lack of support for the industry amid soaring energy costs.

Its CEO and founder James Watt shared the news on a heartfelt LinkedIn post, in which he appealed to Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak to “stop the charade” of not giving help to small firms.

According to MyLondon, three London bars which will close are Smithfield Market Arms in Farringdon, Brewdog Dalston, and Brewdog Old Street. Three other outlets which are set to shut are the Hop and Anchor in Aberdeen, the Hop Hub in Motherwell, and a bar in Peterhead.
