BrewDog’s international bars manager, Neil Taylor, has left the group, MCA understands.

Taylor has been a key figure in the rapid growth of the Scottish craft brewer’s bars division. He was general manager of the first BrewDog bar in Aberdeen and then headed up the first London bar – in Camden. He was then promoted to UK bars area manager in 2012 and the following year took control of the group’s international expansion.

His new role is club services manager for Scottish Rugby Union.

The role of head of international bars is now held by former Tonic BarCo partner, Graeme Hamilton.

Hamilton is a former BDM at Mitchells & Butlers.
