Where it all started

What do you do when you have a passion for great beer, drinks and food? If you’re Mungo & Guy, you start a beer festival of course.

MFGF Events Ltd, the events company run by us, brothers Mungo & Guy Finlayson was founded to support and further strengthen our festival brands, Banchory Beer Festival and Inverurie Beer Festival.

The idea was first brought to light one winter’s evening over a camp fire in Deeside, early 2014. The brand finally became a reality when we made the trip to companies’ house on the 1st of April 2014 and so MFGF Events Ltd was born.

Since then, the brand has gone from strength to strength and grown with two new directors. We have developed new festivals and have worked hard to collaborate with some of the finest breweries and distilleries in the UK… making some great friends along the way.

Louis is our perfectionist and nothing but an impeccable job is accepted! Our bar tops are sanded not once, not twice, but at least three times! Louis’ official title is ‘Operations v2 Director’, however he is always quick to question and lecture on our HSE. His experience from the oil & gas industry ensures the team is fully grounded and prevented 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 always receive a perfect gin and some wonderful chat about the various combinations we can offer – all of which taste like a dream!

If you want a solution Louis will make, fix or find one, but please don’t ask him to hang a menu up, can guarantee it will never be the perfect angle…
