Brewdog severing relationship with Four Corners

I heard at a tasting night over the weekend that Brewdog are changing distribution partners in Ireland from January 1st.
No indication as yet of who is getting the gig although I believe the deal has been done.
Big blow to Four Corners sales I would think
Since when has popularity been a measure of quality?

Heard similar amidst the annual rumblings that BD are going to open a pub here next year.

Last chat RE: the BrewDog bar was that they scoped Kavanaghs but decided it was too far out of town. Now looking elsewhere including at retail units with the aim of converting.

I presume then there are looking to run it directly and not as a franchise ?

What's also interesting is who helped Brewdog make their decision....

Brewdog has a new consultant in Ireland, formerly of Rye River. Not really sure what he does for them though.

It wouldn't be a stretch to assume some influence coming from that direction.
