How do I invest?
Right here! We've set up Equity for Punks USA on BankRoll, which is an awesome American platform for equity crowdfunding. It differs from the likes of Kickstarter and IndieGoGo as we're selling real life equity shares in our American business. You can't sell equity on Kickstarter. But you can on Bankroll, using the new legislation introduced last summer, Regulation A+. We're one of the few businesses to make use of this new opportunity in America, and we're psyched to be bringing our pioneering Equity for Punks business model to the States!
How do I pay for my investment?
Easy! Just hop across to equityforpunksusa.com and follow the steps to complete your payment. Depending on where in the world you live, you may pay by wire transfer, BACS or ACH. Don't worry, the BankRoll pages will make it super straight forward to follow and process your application. If you have any problems or questions, feel free to email us on email@example.com and we'll be sure to respond asap!
How much are you looking to raise?
We have set the bar pretty high with this round, we have a maximum equity value of $50m. Yes, that 'm' does stand for million. We don't have a minimum, so whatever the good American people contribute will help us on our way! We've set it at $50m as that's the maximum you can raise under the new Regulation A+ legislation. Go hard or go home!
What benefits do I get?
Check out the benefits page to see how you can get your paws on exclusive beers, merch, spirits, tours and trips to our breweries, and invites to our US AGM!

When I am investing on BankRoll, what do I need to put in the ‘Net Worth’ field?
This is a requirement for US securities law, as you can only invest up to 10% of your annual income or ‘net worth’, whichever is the higher number.
We won’t ask you to send us documents to prove what you put in this field, it’s just required by the finance people who want to know you’re not blowing your life savings on us!
