In May Brewdog launched a limited edition Barnard Castle Eye Test beer inspired by current affairs, and when announced it was so popular that the business's website was overwhelmed with people wishing to place orders.

Almost 650,000 cans quickly sold out, with BrewDog founder James Watt described it as "the most demand we have ever seen for a beer".
