The Scottish craft brewer is offering the tycoon two shares in its Equity for Punks crowdfunding campaign – worth £95 – in the hope of encouraging him to ‘stop trying to become leader of the free world. Please’.
In an open letter to Trump on the Brewdog blog co-founder James Watt said: “You see Donald, although I admire people in the world of business who are uncompromising in their ambition, all this Presidential stuff is nonsensical.
“To quote a great countryman of yours – you cannot be serious?”
He told Trump his ideas were ‘as misplaced’ as his hair and hoped the Brewdog shares would ‘spark a desire' in the presidential candidate to 'get back into business’.
“Then we can all get on with our lives in that world filled with life, liberty and the pursuit of hoppiness,” said Watt.
Brewdog is hoping to raise £25m through its Equity for Punks campaign to open a craft beer hotel and expand its 27-strong bar chain in the UK and abroad.
The brewer has received investment from over 35,000 people since 2010, and now ships to 56 countries.
