With current restrictions almost as harsh as the first lockdown in 2020, the Scottish brewers BrewDog have a novel way to countdown to them potentially being eased.

The BrewDog lockdown survival kit has been recently launched and contains 24 beers, including 2021 and exclusive releases.

Much like an advent calendar, the 24 pack can be opened once a day to reveal a surprise beer.

Posting on their website, the BrewDog team wrote: “Here we are again, back in lockdown. We may not be able to give you a vaccine and we don’t even know when lockdown will end, but we can do one thing. We can give you enough beer to get you through the next 24 days.​

“Our Lockdown Survival Kit comes packed with an essential 24 beers to keep you going. Open one a day or any combination you like…whatever floats your boat!​

“So, what’s inside? You can look forward to receiving 24 incredible beers including 7 online exclusives and 4 just released in 2021. If you loved our 2020 BrewDog Advent Calendar, you can relive the experience but with 5 completely different beers.​”

Priced at £49.95, beers fans can pre-order the BrewDog lockdown survival kit here.

This lockdown survival kit comes after the company decided to celebrate the launch of its carbon neutral Lost Lager by giving away a free four pack to all who managed to get online and pay the postage.

The BrewDog website was inundated as fans queued to get their hands on the free beers.

Lost Lager is brewed using surplus bread provided by local businesses, wind power from BrewDog turbines, and the new streamlined process used in the brewing process uses a third less water.

The beer will be launching exclusively at Tesco (online and instore) from 26 January.

The brewers kicked off the year by offering their bars as spaces in which to roll out the coronavirus vaccine, with co-founder James Watt tweeting Nicola Sturgeon and Matt Hancock.

Mr Watt tweeted: “Hi @MattHancock & @NicolaSturgeon. We would like to offer our closed @BrewDog venues to help with a quick roll out of the vaccine. For free.”

The chain which has bars in Aberdeen, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Inverurie, Perth, Peterhead, St Andrews and Stirling as well as various other locations across the UK hopes to offer up its spaces as their ‘ace team’ are keen to help in the fight against the virus.
