He tagged both Matt Hancock, the UK's Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, as well as Nicola Sturgeon, the First Minister of Scotland.
Sturgeon responded saying: "Thank you. I'll pass this on to our vaccination team."
Many people have taken to the tweet, thanking Brewdog for attempting to help. One wrote: "This ladies and gentlemen is a company with the right idea, all the way through this s*** show they have been doing their bit . Credit where it is due."
Another added: "What an amazing gesture, especially since hospitality has been hit so hard. My husband and I will be sure to return the favour by supporting the @BrewDog chain when we can."
A third commented: "This posts gives me so much hope after such a dark year. For us, the vaccine seems so far away (thankfully, we are healthy and low risk), but it's actually happening. Even if they are not taken up on the offer, the thought was there & I can't wait to visit Brewdog."
I could not be happier to be a @BrewDog shareholder right now. They've looked after their staff brilliantly during the pandemic, adapted their business (eg BrewDog Now app), made tonnes of hand sanitiser, and now this. Looking forward to getting my vaccine @BrewdogLothian :grin::thumbsup: https://t.co/21nUDJTkS1

Many people asked whether they'd be able to get a pint with their jab... others asked for chicken wings. We're betting most would be delighted with both.
Someone else suggested: "Please give everyone who gets the vaccine a limited edition can of immunIPA as a souvenir @BrewDog I'll be first in line."
Bravo, LADs. Bravo.
