About Fierce Beer:
“Fierce Beer is a modern Scottish brewery based in Aberdeen. Fierce began life as a home-brewing project, inspired by the flavour-packed beers coming out of the West Coast US in the 2010s, and has been producing award-winning beers commercially since 2016. We’ve opened three bars – in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, and Manchester – as well as an on-site brewery taproom. Held in high regard in the UK beer community, we are the most awarded Scottish brewery in recent years, winning 14 medals at the 2020 Scottish Beer Awards before being named Scottish Brewery of the Year in 2021. In 2022, with capacity at our original brewery maxed out, we moved into our current home, where we’re working hard, growing fast, and continuing to focus on brewing outstanding beer.”
