BrewDog’s IPO is just speculation at the moment - it is currently crowdfunding with “Equity for Punks”, offering shares at £25.15 each, with a minimum investment of two shares (£50.30). It’s aiming to raise up to £7.5 million with this offer, which has been popular, having raised more than £23,000 to date.

Equity for Punks

Equity for Punks is BrewDog’s crowdfunding offer. It is selling shares for £25.15 each, but you have to buy at least two shares if you want to invest. Crowdfunding has its own risks, such As the fact that the shares aren’t as easy to resell. Make sure you understand how they work.

BrewDog is offering several perks to its investors, including:

  • Lifetime discount in its bars - you get 5% off if you own between 1 and 19 shares, and 10% off if you own more than 20.
  • A free beer on your birthday
  • AGM invite for you and a friend
  • Pin badge
  • Sustainable supper club membership (double discount on all vegan food in BrewDog bars)
  • Access to exclusive Tomorrow Punk merch
  • Increased discount on DIY Dog supplies
  • Your own tree planted in the BrewDog forest

There are also “boosted benefits” if you invest in 4 or more shares. We can’t list them all, but some of the benefits include:

  • Beer. There are a few different beer bonuses, including a 12-pack of Trash Can Punk, an 8-pack of sustainably brewed, special edition barrel-aged beer using foraged tree fruit and a free case of 24 cans of BrewDog beers on next-day delivery every month for 1 year.
  • Other alcoholic beverages. This includes sustainable whisky and a case of Bad Beer Vodka
  • Exclusive merch. This includes a BrewDog water bottle, a Tomorrow Punk t-shirt, a pen and notebook and a BrewDog Branded Yeti cooler (with beer to fill it with!)
