I may also engage in some 'Pirates of Penzance' behaviour. (You cannot get Brewdog in the US as far as I know.) I will follow the sage advice not to go to the Admirals Club, so I hope I can claim some redemption.
A word of advice. Dont smuggle any kippers out with you. It wont end well

Indeed! I don't think our colonial cousins really understand smoked herring.

There is the letter of the law.
There is the spirit of the law.
And there is the person who decants a bottle of Jonnie Walker Blue into a Chilly bottle whilst they stuffs their pockets with scrambled eggs and bacon.

Or even Printing and Breakfast? Its a bit of light relief in a stressful World, like DYWIA. Unlike Boarding Groups, or Overhead storage! 😎

its almost like a self upgrade to CE!

Pay for CE or buy food in the airport

Anyway once the on-board service began and the crew handed out crisps and water the pilferer refused because she had already sampled some crisps and water, from... you guessed it. The Business Lounge.
that is a rather sad flex - amazing people get so worked up about a lounge, especially a GC one

Not sure that is true, got any thing to back that up?

Im afraid Im not wrong. BA field pitches every day from brands desperate to be sampled by millions of customers. Theyd be mad to pay for Brewdog when competitors will pay you to replace them.

I speak from a position of professional knowledge.

They are. Brewdog need the relationship a lot more than BA do.

Of course. Because that's exactly what you do isn't it?

But why? According to the website i will be able to buy products 'gourmet range by Michelin-starred chef' but at least in 30% of my flights the options are some haribos. Its not my fault if BA cannot get their act together
