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.

  • Role: Director of Bars
  • Favourite Drink: Anything Guy doesn't like

Andy is… well, Andy. He’s the one you’ll see managing the beer & cider bar and has the official title, ‘Director of Bar Building’.

Three years ago the Finlayson brothers roped him in to build a bar and three years later he’s still doing it, and is now officially part of the management team. Together with Louis (BFFs), he manages the practical side of the festival set-ups. During the festivals he’s either got his head stuck behind the beer bar or searching high and low for a Finlayson.

In great team spirit, Andy’s favourite drink is pretty much anything Guy doesn’t like, lucky for you, this means all beer tastes are covered during our festivals. During his spare time Andy enjoys a quaint evening in his canoe on Loch Skene… alone or accompanied, and regularly likes to go to the Marine in Stonehaven and throw sticks for his girlfriend’s dog!
