Brewdog, the company behind many ‘cool’ marketing campaigns, has been exposed by its former employees in an open letter that mentions many controversies and allegations, including mistreatment of employees. The letter, which directed to BrewDog in hope for change, stated, “You spent years claiming you wanted to be the best employer in the world, presumably to help you to recruit top talent, but ask former staff what they think of those claims, and you’ll most likely be laughed at. Being treated like a human being was sadly not always a given for those working at BrewDog.”
Amongst the open letter, many strangers or former consumers of BrewDog responded heavily on social media in support of the former employees. Here are some of the responses from the public.
Remember that time BrewDog had people in marketing interviews pitch an idea, then didn't hire them, and used the ideas anyway? Like they have always been such trash. I hate walking past it everyday – also over £5 a pint.

Brewdog the company that preaches wokeism and judges everyone – has just been proven to be guilty of everything it has ever accused anyone else of.
Oh the sweet nectar. Also, the beer is shite.
