Brewdog, an independent craft beer brewery based in Scotland, will start producing beer at a U.S. site, the firm said on Wednesday after announcing a £6 million ($9.17 million) mini-bond sale earlier this week.
The Scottish company, which was formed in 2007, said it has bought a 42-acre site in Columbus, Ohio, where it will build a 200 barrel production facility.
"(The U.S.) is a fantastic craft brew market," BrewDog co-founder James Watt told CNBC. "It's really tough for us to service that market from Scotland due to the system and the time it takes to get beer there.
"We are excited to be making our beers in America hopefully sometime late summer next year."
The facility will also allow BrewDog to export craft beer to key markets in Canada and South America.
