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: Co-Founder / Director of Drinks
  • Favourite Drink: Alchemy EH54

Guy, the youngest brother in the founding due is the mastermind behind the drinks selection at every festival, and so is aptly given the title ‘Director of Drinks’. With 3 and a half years previous experience in the wine, beer and spirits retail trade, Guy brings with him a wealth of knowledge. This knowledge definitely comes in handy when it comes down to picking those unique drinks for all you festival goers.

Guy (well… all the management team do!) spends quite a bit of his time tasting samples to make sure we always have the best quality drinks on offer... what a hard life! Guy is always more than happy to talk through all of our drinks selections at our festivals and can give you some great advice. So feel free to chat to him during our events and learn that bit more about what you’re drinking, this is Guys speciality after all!

When not working with MFGF Events, Guy enjoys playing rugby for Deeside Rugby Club.
