BREWDOG have been urged to review their delivery charges with customers in England paying less than nearby Elgin.

Constituents raised the issue with Richard Lochhead MSP, who is campaigning to end unfair delivery charges, and he has now called for the north-east firm to speak to their courier service.

The Ellon-based brewery charges five pounds for UK-wide three to five day delivery, but customers with an IV postcode, including households in Moray, face a £9 delivery charge.

Lochhead said: “Since ramping up the campaign against excessive delivery charges to households in rural Scotland I’ve been inundated with folk wanting to share their stories.

“There appears to be no rhyme nor reason in terms of the delivery surcharges some companies are charging. It is pretty astonishing that a company based in Ellon will deliver cheaper to England than they do to Elgin.

“Customers can opt for other beers and we have many popular craft beers produced in Moray and the Highlands, but I’m sure a popular north-east company like BrewDog doesn’t wish to discriminate against customers in the north of Scotland.”
