Craft brewer BrewDog is offering the use of its closed bars and venues as vaccination centres in the UK.

The Scottish craft brewer is in talks with UK Minister for Vaccine Deployment Nadhim Zahawi and First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon in how its venues and staff could be used, for free, in the roll out of the COVID-19 vaccine.

CEO James Watt points out that BrewDog’s venues – most of which are closed under COVID-19 restrictions – have waiting areas, large refrigerators and ‘ace people who can help organize’.

In addition, he promises that everyone who gets vaccinated at a BrewDog bar would get a special commemorative beer.

The UK currently has two vaccines authorized: with the first vaccine from Pfizer/BioNTech given the green light last month and vaccinations with the Oxford / AstraZeneca vaccine starting today.
