Founders James Watt and Martin Dickie, and other shareholders, could share up to £100 million of that investment between them.

About £100m will be invested in the ten-year-old company and about £113m will be spent buying shares from existing investors.

BrewDog now employs 800 staff and is opening BrewDog bars across the world and has begun building a brewery in Columbus, Ohio, as a launchpad for a bid to conquer America.

BrewDog posted a £7m pre-tax profit on £71m of revenues last year.
