BrewDog punks cash in with £1bn deal

Martin Dickie and James Watt have raised millions from beer lovers through crowdfunding

The founders of BrewDog could pocket as much as £100m after selling a slug of the Scottish craft beer maker to an American private equity giant.

The 34-year-old schoolfriends set up the company in Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire, with a £20,000 bank loan.
