The firm, Scotland’s largest independent brewery, made 42,000 shares available for purchase online, priced at £95 each. The record-breaking start to the campaign takes the brewery three-quarters of the way to reaching its £4m target in less than a third of the time it allocated to the programme.
“Raising £3million in just two months demonstrates the epic support behind the craft beer revolution,” said BrewDog’s co-founder James Watt. “Equity for Punks is rewriting the rules of business finance and it’s putting our customers right at the heart of our operation.”
Watt and fellow co-founder Martin Dickie plan to use the funds to further expand BrewDog’s new brewery along with its burgeoning bar division and a new series of bottle shops across the UK.
