UPROXX 20: James Watt Of ‘Brew Dogs’ Thinks American Sports Teams Have Silly Names

James Watt is a UK brewery owner best known for co-hosting, along with Martin Dickie, Esquire Network’s Brew Dogs, which features the two traveling to different cities and towns and sampling craft beers native to the areas they visit. The pair founded what they claim is Scotland’s largest independent brewery in 2007, called — you guessed it — BrewDog.

James was nice enough to take a few minutes out of his busy schedule recently to answer a few questions from us.
