BrewDog’s Equity for Punks

As of November 1st, BrewDog is the beer sponsor of The Thousands. They will be providing everybody at the opening with plenty of great beer. Otherwise my plan was to buy a bunch of cheap beer and put up a donation bucket, so I’m very thankful I won’t have to resort to that. Since BrewDog is majorly helping out me with The Thousands, it’s only right that I repay the favor.

BrewDog is a different kind of brewery. They’re independent, and they do things like brew an 18.2% beer and then make a 1.1% beer when people get mad at them. One of their latest projects is Equity for Punks. At Equity for Punks, BrewDog is looking for 10,000 investors to invest £230 each to own a piece of the brewery.

Here’s their video pitch:

And here’s BrewDog talking about Equity for Punks on the BBC:

Equity for Punks is an opportunity for people to support something they love. If you like beer and you like the environment, then why not invest in an environmentally friendly brewery which is only two years old and growing quickly?
