The Scottish craft brewer has announced an exclusive deal with London-based Temple of Seitan to feature their signature seitan wings and burgers in UK BrewDog bars.

Available across the UK from Tuesday 14th January, the partnership continues BrewDog’s decade-long commitment to collaboration and furthers the brand’s effort to make BrewDog Bars sought-after destinations for vegan and vegetarian food.

Temple of Seitan has garnered a cult following as they paved the way for delicious vegan food with the establishment of London’s first pioneering vegan fried chicken shop in 2017.

This new collaboration sees BrewDog continue its drive to be inclusive, with over half the dishes on offer in every UK BrewDog Bar being plant-based, and served alongside a core beer range which is 95 per cent vegan friendly.

Temple of Seitan’s vegan wings will be given the full BrewDog treatment by being doused in the brand’s hot sauce and syrup glaze.

Burger fans can also get stuck into the Clucky This Time or Temple of Seitan burgers – both featuring Temple of Seitan plant-based patties.

The new menu items are ideal for those following a plant based diet or trying  Veganuary and, if you’re keen to save some money this month (who isn’t) then BrewDog have a giveaway to celebrate the collaboration.

The first five people to order the Temple of Seitan wings at each UK BrewDog bar on Tuesday 14th January will get them on the house.

To highlight their plant-based range, BrewDog is also running a January promotion – all vegetarian and vegan main meals are half price for the entire month

James Brown, Retail Director, said: “We are passionate in our mission to convince people that there exists an alternative to bland, mass-produced beer, and Temple of Seitan share that faith albeit for vegan food.

“Their unique take on fried chicken and burgers are changing attitudes across the capital – and now, with us, we hope the entire UK as well.

“We love working with and championing disruptors and people who craft their product with passion which Patrick, Rebecca and their team optimise.

“Vegan junk food and craft beer…it doesn’t get any better than that.”

Patrick O’Shea, co-founder of Temple of Seitan, said: “We are incredibly excited to partner up with BrewDog to feature our wings and burgers on their menu.

“We’ve had many opportunities to work with other establishments over the years, however what appealed about Brewdog was their shared ethics and values.

“They are fiercely independent whilst also supporting other independent brands and are committed to paying their staff a living wage.

“Most importantly for us they’re expanding their vegan range which will improve outcomes for animals, customers and our planet. Their beers are a staff favourite at Temple HQ as well!

“Our mission is to offer the comfort food many vegans still crave, and offer an alternative for meat eaters that will change their perceptions of veganism.

“Working with BrewDog to provide our food on their menus will allow us to do that not just in London, but all across the UK.”
