CROWDCUBE & THE FIRST EVER BREWDOG BOND
Equity for Punks IV is the world’s biggest and boldest crowdfunding scheme to date. As an alternative small company, owned by thousands of people who love craft beer, we are committed to giving that community the chance to share in our progression. Equity for Punks IV has been a huge hit so far with £8m raised since April, and we are about to take it to the next level.
Today, we are excited to announce a brand new method to invest in BrewDog with the first ever BrewDog Bond.
Equity for Punks IV shares are now also available on Crowdcube too. That means we are launching the first ever crowdfunded joint bond & equity offer in the UK.
We are psyched that the team at Crowdcube has helped us to put this in place, customising their platform for a world-first customer experience. With 198,660 registered investors and a funding success total nudging the £100m barrier, we know we are excited to be working with the very best in the business.
So, how will the BrewDog vs Crowdcube mashup work?
To invest in BrewDog over Crowdcube, the rule of the land is the same as for those investing on our website; the minimum amount of investment is £95 for two shares. Those who use the Crowdcube platform will also get access to the all the same benefits as our Equity Punk shareholders, once the investment period on Crowdcube has closed (more on which later).
This is the first time we have ever issued a bond – giving a steady, fixed rate income – for BrewDog supporters. The minimum investment in a bond is £500, and it will mature over four years, with 6.5% p.a. over that time. The interest will be paid to investors semi-annually.
Crowdcube is changing the game with its bond offerings, having raised £7.8m in bonds to date. As well as the 6.5% p.a., those taking out a BrewDog Bond will receive a discount on our online shop and in our network of bars, as well as a personalised ID card.
The BrewDog Crowdcube investment opportunity is open right now and will remain open for 45 days. The great thing about our partnership with Crowdcube is that potential investors can either opt for the equity or the bond, or both!

We believe that the best way to develop BrewDog and further grow our business is to offer you, the people who enjoy our beers, the chance be involved in BrewDog’s future. And in offering that chance via the innovative platform developed by Crowdcube, we will continue to put the people who really care in control.
Full information on the BrewDog share offer is contained in a prospectus available at www.crowdcube.com/brewdog. Investors should only subscribe for shares on the basis of information contained in the prospectus.
