The Dog and Fig Brewery was established by a group of friends in 2008, as an expression of their passion for good company, good food and of course, great beer. The vision to establish a microbrewery with a difference started brewing as early as 2007 – already then we realised the need to develop an exclusive market for unique beers, which, like wine, can be savoured rather than quaffed. The target is to create custom-brewed “couture” beers and avoid the uniform taste of mass-produced products, hence the concept of extreme brewing. These beers are unfiltered, unpasteurised and made only with malted barley, hops and water. They also seek to educate people in the wide-ranging styles of beer, and therefore complement the brewing activities with structured beer-tasting evenings and attendance at various festivals.
