    Middle-Class David and Goliath brand spat of the Year

    As word spread about drinks behemoth Diageo cheating anti-mass-market craft brewery BrewDog out of one of the BII Scotland Annual Awards, we knew this was the most perfect middle-class brand spat imaginable: BrewDog taking to their own blog to vent spleen about Diageo; the people who got the award instead, a bar in Falkirk, refusing to accept the trophy which had ‘BrewDog’ engraved on it; Diageo having to grovel. BrewDog is our spiritual winner here, but you need two brands to make a spat, so BrewDog shares our new award with the dastardly Diageo, whom neither BrewDog nor we have yet forgiven.
