To Be An Equity Punk
At BrewDog, we are on a mission to make other people as passionate about great craft beer as we are; welcoming beer geeks and novices alike along on the journey.
A huge influence to our growth and our history has been our alternative business model, Equity For Punks. This means that over the course of 4 share offerings in the UK, and 1 in America, our business is now owned by a community of over 55,000 people who are as passionate about great beer as we are, and we love every one of them.
So what does it mean to be an Equity Punk? What makes it an awesome community to be a part of? From craft beer fans across the globe, to our own staff, everyone has claimed their stake in BrewDog for a reason.
For some, it’s joining like minded beer geeks in living their life the way they want, and not conforming to society’s mold, and for others it’s exclusive access to events like our Annual General Mayhem shareholder meeting, epic activities like shareholder-brewed beers, and first dibs when we release a new beer.
One thing’s for certain: becoming an Equity Punk is your front row seat to the craft beer revolution.
One of our regular faces at DogTap Columbus, Chris shared with us, “I have met several new people from all over the world, and shared beer and stories with people that I otherwise would not have met. I’ve expanded my world again. Everything above is great, but the main reason is the beer. I’m looking forward to sharing BrewDog beers with friends, and being part of the American craft beer revolution.”Benefits
After four rounds of crowdfunding in the UK, Equity For Punks has smashed records and expectations. Over the years, our Equity Punks have helped build a 300hL system in the UK, an American brewery, a sour facility, and a score of bars. Even just this year, those who invested in the first round back in 2010 saw their share value increase by over 2765 percent!

You’ll also receive access to our exclusive shareholders-only forum, and your online shop discount. In only a few months’ time, your invite to the AGM will also hit your inbox!
