BREWDOG PLC HAS BEEN NAMED AS ONE OF THE UK’S FASTEST
GROWING BUSINESSES OVER THE PAST 6 YEARS.
HERE’S YOUR CHANCE TO OWN A PART OF OUR US BUSINESS!



SO! WANNA OWN A PIECE OF A CRAFT BREWERY? KEEP READING!


BrewDog plc is the largest and fastest growing craft brewer in Europe, and has been the fastest growing food & drinks company in the UK for the last six years consecutively. In 2017, we grew our overall UK sales by 78%, and shipped 104million bottles of beer worldwide. We are taking all that we have learned since 2007, and applying it in America as we look to build our US business.


“BREWDOG PLC HAS BEEN THE UK’S FASTEST GROWING FOOD AND DRINKS COMPANY FOR THE LAST 6 YEARS”

– SundayTimes Fast Track 100, 2017

 

Today, BrewDog plc employs more than 1,000 passionate people, ships beer to 60 countries around the world, and operates an ever- growing legion of amazing craft beer bars. Despite only starting in 2007, we have built a global reputation for our beers and our brand.

Our seasoned team, our intellectual property, our infrastructure and our experience in craft beer will all enable us to grow our presence in America.

OUR BEER

In America, our beer range is decided by our community. We brew the beers that they want to drink. From Elvis Juice, our IPA featuring an all-out riot of grapefruit and zest, to the inky depths of Jet Black Heart, our vanilla milk stout – we have a headliner range of brilliantly crafted beers, designed to suit the American market. Our pack is led by Punk IPA, our world- class India Pale Ale that has blazed a trail for craft beer around the world. We are also able to produce small batch, innovative twists on traditional styles, such as Juggernaut, and Freak State.

OUR PEOPLE

Our US brewery employs over 150 people in the city of Columbus, as well as a number of people across the United States. We are supported by our founder- led team in Europe, with our US senior team leading our production and marketing out of Ohio. Our seasoned brewing team combine experience from leading breweries such as Founders, FireStone Walker, Wicked Weed and New Belgium.

OUR BRAND

We arrived in America with brand recognition, owing to our TV show, Brew Dogs. The show aired for three seasons, and was the longest-running beer TV show in history, broadcast on Esquire in the US. We’ve also got a heritage for zany PR activities to launch our beers, which often garner a lot of attention around the world. You might have heard of us!

OUR BREWERY

We have a state-of-the-art brewery just 10 miles south of downtown Columbus, Ohio. Launched in 2017, we produce all our beers for the American market at this facility, which also houses a taproom (DogTap), garden, visitor center and restaurant. The 100,000 sq ft brewery is built on a 42 acre site, and we are currently building the world’s first crowd-funded craft beer hotel right next door. This hotel will create a destination for craft beer, with rooms overlooking the Brewhouse. We adore Ohio, and Columbus has welcomed us with open arms. There is a huge opportunity in the Mid-West, and there are no other breweries of our size in the Columbus area.


WE STARTED BREWING BEER IN OHIO IN 2017, AND SINCE THEN DEMAND HAS RAMPED UP ACROSS AMERICA.


We are now available in ten states, and we are expanding our footprint every day. Ohio remains our biggest and most loved state, being our homeland in the USA and the hub of our production, and we’re making tracks into neighboring states as well as significant craft beer outposts. The response we have received from beer fans is incredible, and we’ll soon be hitting stores in a city near you!

WHERE YOU CAN BUY OUR BEER

We are working solidly to build relationships with additional state distributors, and the following states are in our cross hairs for 2018.


THE MORE EQUITY PUNKS WE SEE INVESTING FROM YOUR HOME STATE, THE MORE EFFORT AND RESOURCES WE WILL PUT INTO MAKING SURE YOU CAN GET YOUR HANDS ON OUR BEER!


Since opening our first bar in Aberdeen in 2010, BrewDog now has over 50 bars globally including flagship sites in London, Berlin, Barcelona, Tokyo, São Paulo and Stockholm.

BrewDog Bars are places where you can indulge in everything that is great about craft beer. We pride ourselves on having the most knowledgeable staff and showcasing the most flavorsome beers from all over the planet.

BREWDOG BARS IN AMERICA


WE LAUNCHED OUR FIRST BAR IN AMERICA BEFORE WE OPENED OUR US BREWERY. DOGTAP COLUMBUS HAS BEEN BOUNCING SINCE OPENING ITS DOORS IN JANUARY 2017, 6 MONTHS BEFORE WE RELEASED OUR FIRST BEERS STATESIDE. NOW, WE’RE TAKING THIS SHOW ON THE ROAD.


In Europe, our bars enable us to sell more beer, increase our brand visibility, build our community and introduce more people to the incredible world of great craft beer.

Originally inspired by American beer bars, each BrewDog venue infuses European café culture, contemporary food, craft beer, and artisanal spirits.

Our spaces are raw, utilitarian and industrial, but we take care to make them comfortable places where you’ll want to stick around.

We plan to launch a series of BrewPubs across America, with your help! We will be tracking the investment from Equity for Punks USA, and where we see significant spikes in investment, we will aim to open a new bar in your hometown.

With three BrewDog bars already launched in Columbus Ohio, BrewDog USA is primed and ready to bring our established craft beer venues to more states. We have identified a number of amazing cities in which we plan to open BrewPubs, but we need your help to determine where we hit up first!

Any city with more than 500 Equity Punk investors will make it onto our initial hit list for BrewPubs sites in America!

Visit brewdog.com/usa/equityforpunks/live-updates to see how your city stacks up so far!


WANT US TO ROCK UP TO YOUR HOMETOWN? IF WE SEE 500 INVESTORS FROM ANY US CITY, WE WILL ENDEAVOR TO OPEN A BREWPUB THERE!


Your investment will help shape how we shortlist new cities, and you’ll be invited to preview your local BrewPub before it opens to the public! The map below shows where we’re already aiming to open some amazing craft beer venues, and we’ll be expanding this map based on where we see investment!

 

NEW BARS

Our first American venue launched on site at our Ohio brewery 6 months before we even produced our first beer! DogTap was a hit from the start, and we have since launched two additional bars in Columbus; The Short North and Franklinton. With the money raised, we plan to open more amazing craft beer bars across the USA, combining our love for American craft beer destinations with European beer café culture.

 

EVENTS VENUE

Our taproom, DogTap often plays host to events for our local community, be it a corporate event, birthdays, get togethers or just a day out with the dogs. We see a huge opportunity for an awesome events space on site in Columbus, with capacity for 750 people and the best beer you’ll ever find in such a venue! Forget the dried out sandwiches and stuffy, windowless rooms. This will be the ultimate location for craft beer weddings, conferences, festivals and meetings. Get working on your guest list!

 

SOUR BEER DEVELOPMENT & PRODUCTION

Last year, we raised initial funds for a sour beer facility in Ohio. Since then, we have launched the OverWorks in Ellon, Scotland, and we’re gearing up to start working on some sour fermentation this side of the pond. Our resident master of funk, Richard Kilcullen, will be establishing a wonderland of spontaneous fermentation on our site right here in Ohio, and your investment will help develop the recipes and production requirements for this exciting new brewing endeavor.

 

AUTOMATED KEG LINE

It’s not sexy, but it’s necessary!
We need an automated keg line here in Columbus to fast track production and get your awesome beer out the door and into more bars faster, and fresher. Your investment will make that happen!

INFRASTRUCTURE & PEOPLE

We’ve got huge plans here in America and we’ve already got an incredible team on the ground ready to make it happen. Our first year has been a blast with a new distribution route opening up every few weeks since we released our first beers, and our ability to fast-track our progress and reach all four corners of the USA fast is totally reliant on the stability of our infrastructure, and the ability of our people. We’ll be investing in both these things as part of Equity for Punks USA.

Yes you can still invest! Our share offering has been qualified by the SEC for US citizens to invest, but investors outside the USA may also be eligible to buy shares too! We’re more than happy for anyone and everyone to invest from anywhere in the world, we just ask that you ensure your own situation allows you to become an investor wherever you live or invest from.

Thank you! As long as you are comfortable that your own situation makes you eligible to invest again, we’d love for you to join the ranks of our investors in our US company!

Can I sell my shares?

While selling your shares is allowed after we close the offering, you will have to find a purchaser as we will not be listed on any exchange. Eventually, our goal is to have the shares publicly listed and tradable on an exchange, but that may not happen for some time.

There is no assurance the shares will ever be publicly listed or that a secondary market will develop.

Can I buy the shares as a gift for someone?

It is awesome to hear that you want to buy someone shares in Equity for Punks USA as a gift!

It is a bit tricky, but we are here to help you. Because of regulations that require whoever buys the shares to have the funds come from a bank account that shares the same name as the purchaser, you cannot fill out the online forms with the name of the lucky recipient of your gift.

But, if you buy the shares you want to give as a gift, and then contact us once your shares are issued to you, we can help you get the shares transferred into someone else’s name. Just keep in mind we will need the same information from the person you are giving the gift to, like their name, address, date of birth and an identification number.
Reach out to us at equitypunks@brewdog.com and we will help you!

How is the value of the company calculated?

The valuation of the company was based on many factors, including expected volumes to be produced, capacity and potential for expansion, anticipated demand and recent acquisitions of other breweries.
The valuation was not based on any set valuation criteria, and was not based on an independent, third party valuation.

How is Equity for Punks regulated?

We are thrilled to be able to offer our Equity for Punks USA shares through Regulation A+ in the United States which was just made legal in 2015, allowing our American friends to join our legions of passionate shareholders across the world by investing in BrewDog USA Inc.! As one of the first companies to launch an equity crowdfunding round in the U.S. a couple of years ago, we were able to bring in more than 8,000 Equity Punks our first round and we hope we inspired more companies to raise funds through this awesome alternative way of funding your business!

BrewDog USA Inc.’s new Equity for Punks USA offer is being made under Regulation A+ of the JOBS Act. Our offering had to be submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission and qualified by them before we could offer any shares for sale. Equity for Punks USA is regulated by federal and state securities laws. The legal work in preparing the offering circular and the offering itself was carried out by attorney Kendall Almerico and his law firm Almerico Law. The audit of BrewDog USA Inc.'s financial records was carried out by Ernst & Young, and these records are the basis for the financial information contained in the offering circular.

When am I allowed to invest?

You can invest right now! Just check out the information and Offering Circular, including investment risks, on this page.

How much are you going to raise?

Our goal is to raise $10 million, but if we reach that goal, we may continue and raise up to $40 million. Every penny invested will help build our business across America. The number of bars we can launch will depend on the final amount raised, but there is no minimum we need to raise.

Can anyone invest?

Yes, anyone can invest! Regulation A+ allows anyone to invest in our company, not just the fat cats and rich people with yachts and swimming pools who used to hold a monopoly over investment in companies like ours. With Regulation A+, BrewDog USA Inc. can accept investments from anyone, and you can become part of our craft beer revolution for as little as $50. We would much rather have the backing of craft beer fans who love and care about the beer we make, than just the rich folks on Wall Street.

How long will people be able to buy the stock?

Shares will be available until 90 days after the date the SEC qualified the offering (subject to extension or other change), or until we raise a total of $40 million; whichever is sooner.

How do people pay for the stock?

When you click the Invest Now button on this page you will fill out a couple of forms and then have the opportunity to pay either by credit or debit card, ACH (you electronically transfer the money from your bank account to an escrow account, who then releases it to us), wire, or by check. We made the process as easy for you to follow as we are allowed to by law!

Will the stock be listed on an exchange like NASDAQ?

Eventually, that is our goal. But for now, our shares are not publicly traded on any exchange.

How many shares of stock are available? What happens when they run out?

We started with a total of 800,000 shares to sell. The number available goes down every time a new Equity Punk joins our American craft beer revolution. When these shares run out, there are no more for sale in this offering.

Where do you plan on opening BrewDog bars?

We’re planning on launching a number of epic craft beer brew pubs and bars across the U.S.. Initially, we have already opened three bars around Columbus, Ohio - but we’ll also be looking at where we see hubs of investment from new Equity Punks, and bump any interesting regions up our list!

What happens if you raise less than $10 million?

We already built a world-class craft beer brewery and three epic bars in Columbus, Ohio. But, the more we raise, the faster we can grow, and the quicker we can recruit an amazing crew of craft beer crusaders as foot soldiers for BrewDog USA Inc. Every dollar invested will be used to expand our U.S. operations in order to spread our passion for great craft beer across this great country.

Our pack is led by Punk IPA, our world- class India Pale Ale that has blazed a trail for craft beer around the world. We are also able to produce small batch, innovative twists on traditional styles, such as Juggernaut, and Freak State.

OUR PEOPLE

Our US brewery employs over 150 people in the city of Columbus, as well as a number of people across the United States. We are supported by our founder- led team in Europe, with our US senior team leading our production and marketing out of Ohio. Our seasoned brewing team combine experience from leading breweries such as Founders, FireStone Walker, Wicked Weed and New Belgium.

OUR BRAND

We arrived in America with brand recognition, owing to our TV show, Brew Dogs. The show aired for three seasons, and was the longest-running beer TV show in history, broadcast on Esquire in the US. We’ve also got a heritage for zany PR activities to launch our beers, which often garner a lot of attention around the world. You might have heard of us!

OUR BREWERY

We have a state-of-the-art brewery just 10 miles south of downtown Columbus, Ohio. Launched in 2017, we produce all our beers for the American market at this facility, which also houses a taproom (DogTap), garden, visitor center and restaurant. The 100,000 sq ft brewery is built on a 42 acre site, and we are currently building the world’s first crowd-funded craft beer hotel right next door. This hotel will create a destination for craft beer, with rooms overlooking the Brewhouse. We adore Ohio, and Columbus has welcomed us with open arms. There is a huge opportunity in the Mid-West, and there are no other breweries of our size in the Columbus area.


WE STARTED BREWING BEER IN OHIO IN 2017, AND SINCE THEN DEMAND HAS RAMPED UP ACROSS AMERICA.


We are now available in ten states, and we are expanding our footprint every day. Ohio remains our biggest and most loved state, being our homeland in the USA and the hub of our production, and we’re making tracks into neighboring states as well as significant craft beer outposts. The response we have received from beer fans is incredible, and we’ll soon be hitting stores in a city near you!

WHERE YOU CAN BUY OUR BEER

We are working solidly to build relationships with additional state distributors, and the following states are in our cross hairs for 2018.


THE MORE EQUITY PUNKS WE SEE INVESTING FROM YOUR HOME STATE, THE MORE EFFORT AND RESOURCES WE WILL PUT INTO MAKING SURE YOU CAN GET YOUR HANDS ON OUR BEER!


Since opening our first bar in Aberdeen in 2010, BrewDog now has over 50 bars globally including flagship sites in London, Berlin, Barcelona, Tokyo, São Paulo and Stockholm.

BrewDog Bars are places where you can indulge in everything that is great about craft beer. We pride ourselves on having the most knowledgeable staff and showcasing the most flavorsome beers from all over the planet.

BREWDOG BARS IN AMERICA


WE LAUNCHED OUR FIRST BAR IN AMERICA BEFORE WE OPENED OUR US BREWERY. DOGTAP COLUMBUS HAS BEEN BOUNCING SINCE OPENING ITS DOORS IN JANUARY 2017, 6 MONTHS BEFORE WE RELEASED OUR FIRST BEERS STATESIDE. NOW, WE’RE TAKING THIS SHOW ON THE ROAD.


In Europe, our bars enable us to sell more beer, increase our brand visibility, build our community and introduce more people to the incredible world of great craft beer.

Originally inspired by American beer bars, each BrewDog venue infuses European café culture, contemporary food, craft beer, and artisanal spirits.

Our spaces are raw, utilitarian and industrial, but we take care to make them comfortable places where you’ll want to stick around.

We plan to launch a series of BrewPubs across America, with your help! We will be tracking the investment from Equity for Punks USA, and where we see significant spikes in investment, we will aim to open a new bar in your hometown.

With three BrewDog bars already launched in Columbus Ohio, BrewDog USA is primed and ready to bring our established craft beer venues to more states. We have identified a number of amazing cities in which we plan to open BrewPubs, but we need your help to determine where we hit up first!

Any city with more than 500 Equity Punk investors will make it onto our initial hit list for BrewPubs sites in America!

Visit brewdog.com/usa/equityforpunks/live-updates to see how your city stacks up so far!


WANT US TO ROCK UP TO YOUR HOMETOWN? IF WE SEE 500 INVESTORS FROM ANY US CITY, WE WILL ENDEAVOR TO OPEN A BREWPUB THERE!


Your investment will help shape how we shortlist new cities, and you’ll be invited to preview your local BrewPub before it opens to the public! The map below shows where we’re already aiming to open some amazing craft beer venues, and we’ll be expanding this map based on where we see investment!

 

NEW BARS

Our first American venue launched on site at our Ohio brewery 6 months before we even produced our first beer! DogTap was a hit from the start, and we have since launched two additional bars in Columbus; The Short North and Franklinton. With the money raised, we plan to open more amazing craft beer bars across the USA, combining our love for American craft beer destinations with European beer café culture.

 

EVENTS VENUE

Our taproom, DogTap often plays host to events for our local community, be it a corporate event, birthdays, get togethers or just a day out with the dogs. We see a huge opportunity for an awesome events space on site in Columbus, with capacity for 750 people and the best beer you’ll ever find in such a venue! Forget the dried out sandwiches and stuffy, windowless rooms. This will be the ultimate location for craft beer weddings, conferences, festivals and meetings. Get working on your guest list!

 

SOUR BEER DEVELOPMENT & PRODUCTION

Last year, we raised initial funds for a sour beer facility in Ohio. Since then, we have launched the OverWorks in Ellon, Scotland, and we’re gearing up to start working on some sour fermentation this side of the pond. Our resident master of funk, Richard Kilcullen, will be establishing a wonderland of spontaneous fermentation on our site right here in Ohio, and your investment will help develop the recipes and production requirements for this exciting new brewing endeavor.

 

AUTOMATED KEG LINE

It’s not sexy, but it’s necessary!
We need an automated keg line here in Columbus to fast track production and get your awesome beer out the door and into more bars faster, and fresher. Your investment will make that happen!

INFRASTRUCTURE & PEOPLE

We’ve got huge plans here in America and we’ve already got an incredible team on the ground ready to make it happen. Our first year has been a blast with a new distribution route opening up every few weeks since we released our first beers, and our ability to fast-track our progress and reach all four corners of the USA fast is totally reliant on the stability of our infrastructure, and the ability of our people. We’ll be investing in both these things as part of Equity for Punks USA.

I live outside the USA! Can I invest?

Yes you can still invest! Our share offering has been qualified by the SEC for US citizens to invest, but investors outside the USA may also be eligible to buy shares too! We’re more than happy for anyone and everyone to invest from anywhere in the world, we just ask that you ensure your own situation allows you to become an investor wherever you live or invest from.

I am already a shareholder, can I buy more?

If you have already bought shares in Equity for Punks for our UK business previously, or if you invested in BrewDog USA Inc. in our last crowdfunding round, you are one of more than 80,000 people who BrewDog plc and BrewDog USA Inc. consider as our nearest and dearest friends. Thank you! As long as you are comfortable that your own situation makes you eligible to invest again, we’d love for you to join the ranks of our investors in our US company!

Can I sell my shares?

While selling your shares is allowed after we close the offering, you will have to find a purchaser as we will not be listed on any exchange. Eventually, our goal is to have the shares publicly listed and tradable on an exchange, but that may not happen for some time.

There is no assurance the shares will ever be publicly listed or that a secondary market will develop.

Can I buy the shares as a gift for someone?

It is awesome to hear that you want to buy someone shares in Equity for Punks USA as a gift!

It is a bit tricky, but we are here to help you. Because of regulations that require whoever buys the shares to have the funds come from a bank account that shares the same name as the purchaser, you cannot fill out the online forms with the name of the lucky recipient of your gift.

But, if you buy the shares you want to give as a gift, and then contact us once your shares are issued to you, we can help you get the shares transferred into someone else’s name. Just keep in mind we will need the same information from the person you are giving the gift to, like their name, address, date of birth and an identification number.
Reach out to us at equitypunks@brewdog.com and we will help you!

How is the value of the company calculated?

The valuation of the company was based on many factors, including expected volumes to be produced, capacity and potential for expansion, anticipated demand and recent acquisitions of other breweries.
The valuation was not based on any set valuation criteria, and was not based on an independent, third party valuation.

How is Equity for Punks regulated?

We are thrilled to be able to offer our Equity for Punks USA shares through Regulation A+ in the United States which was just made legal in 2015, allowing our American friends to join our legions of passionate shareholders across the world by investing in BrewDog USA Inc.! As one of the first companies to launch an equity crowdfunding round in the U.S. a couple of years ago, we were able to bring in more than 8,000 Equity Punks our first round and we hope we inspired more companies to raise funds through this awesome alternative way of funding your business!

BrewDog USA Inc.’s new Equity for Punks USA offer is being made under Regulation A+ of the JOBS Act. Our offering had to be submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission and qualified by them before we could offer any shares for sale. Equity for Punks USA is regulated by federal and state securities laws. The legal work in preparing the offering circular and the offering itself was carried out by attorney Kendall Almerico and his law firm Almerico Law. The audit of BrewDog USA Inc.'s financial records was carried out by Ernst & Young, and these records are the basis for the financial information contained in the offering circular.

When am I allowed to invest?

You can invest right now! Just check out the information and Offering Circular, including investment risks, on this page.

How much are you going to raise?

Our goal is to raise $10 million, but if we reach that goal, we may continue and raise up to $40 million. Every penny invested will help build our business across America. The number of bars we can launch will depend on the final amount raised, but there is no minimum we need to raise.

Can anyone invest?

Yes, anyone can invest! Regulation A+ allows anyone to invest in our company, not just the fat cats and rich people with yachts and swimming pools who used to hold a monopoly over investment in companies like ours. With Regulation A+, BrewDog USA Inc. can accept investments from anyone, and you can become part of our craft beer revolution for as little as $50. We would much rather have the backing of craft beer fans who love and care about the beer we make, than just the rich folks on Wall Street.

How long will people be able to buy the stock?

Shares will be available until 90 days after the date the SEC qualified the offering (subject to extension or other change), or until we raise a total of $40 million; whichever is sooner.

How do people pay for the stock?

When you click the Invest Now button on this page you will fill out a couple of forms and then have the opportunity to pay either by credit or debit card, ACH (you electronically transfer the money from your bank account to an escrow account, who then releases it to us), wire, or by check. We made the process as easy for you to follow as we are allowed to by law!

Will the stock be listed on an exchange like NASDAQ?

Eventually, that is our goal. But for now, our shares are not publicly traded on any exchange.

How many shares of stock are available? What happens when they run out?

We started with a total of 800,000 shares to sell. The number available goes down every time a new Equity Punk joins our American craft beer revolution. When these shares run out, there are no more for sale in this offering.

Where do you plan on opening BrewDog bars?

We’re planning on launching a number of epic craft beer brew pubs and bars across the U.S.. Initially, we have already opened three bars around Columbus, Ohio - but we’ll also be looking at where we see hubs of investment from new Equity Punks, and bump any interesting regions up our list!

What happens if you raise less than $10 million?

We already built a world-class craft beer brewery and three epic bars in Columbus, Ohio. But, the more we raise, the faster we can grow, and the quicker we can recruit an amazing crew of craft beer crusaders as foot soldiers for BrewDog USA Inc. Every dollar invested will be used to expand our U.S. operations in order to spread our passion for great craft beer across this great country.
