Where it all started

Inverurie Beer Festival was founded of the back of Banchory Beer Festival,which started in 2014 by two local Banchory brothers Mungo & Guy Finlayson, who have a passion for good food & drink and wanted to bring something new to the Deeside area.

MFGF Events Ltd the events company the brothers founded to run the festivals has only grown from strength to strength after it's launched back in April 2014. The idea was brain stormed one winter night in early 2014 and eventually became a reality when they founded the company at companies’ house on the 1st of April 2014.

  • Role: Director of Great Ideas
  • Favourite Drink: Unusual Ciders

Louis is the perfectionist of the team and nothing bar a perfect job is accepted. Those bar tops are sanded not once, twice but at least three times! His official title is Operations v2 Director however he is always quick to question and lecture on HS&E. His experience from the oil industry keeps the team grounded from entering the realms of ridiculous concepts – “can staff have Segway’s to travel around on”. Louis manages the teams behind the Gin, Rum & Prosecco bar so you’ll also expect a perfect gin and that great bit of chat about the various combinations that he will persuade you to enjoy! If you want a solution Louis will make, fix or find one but don’t just don’t ask him to hang a menu up as it will never be the perfect angle…
