OGV Taproom has been developed by the team at OGV Energy, a well-established media group (https://www.ogv.energy) within the energy industry. Through the growth and development of OGV Energy, both Director and staff members are lucky enough to travel to many different locations for industry events and brand development. It was during such travels that the team discovered a variety of craft beers and breweries across the world, sparking a desire to create their very own brand back home, in Aberdeen.
Us Devenick lads also come from the energy industry which meant that OGV’s beers were right up our street! The beernames (North Sea Tiger, Rig Pig, Blackballed, 6am Check-in, & Paraffin Budgie to name but a few), all have a tongue-in-cheek nod to the oil patch. They also come with the added bonus of not tasting like the ‘Becks Blue’ filled Xmas Days that so many of us have endured whilst working offshore!
Not only are OGV providing quality tasting beers, they’ve just opened their very own Taproom in the city centre! Located at the former site of ‘The Garage’ on Windmill Brae, the Taproom has a very cool and stylish offshore theme and aims to offer an environment for business folk to conduct meetings, network or for the general public to sit in and relax with a nice cold glass of craft beer – bliss!
