If enough people in Dublin sign up as an equity punk, it might help speed up the process. Looking at the little chart now, Ireland is in green which means we have between 50 and 99 equity punks. Actually, I just joined up a few minutes ago so that might help.IF WE RECEIVE MORE THAN 200 NEW EQUITY PUNK INVESTORS FROM A TOWN OR CITY WHERE WE DON’T CURRENTLY HAVE A BREWDOG BAR, WE WILL ENDEAVOUR TO OPEN ONE THERE WITHIN 12 MONTHS.
Brewdog has a referral program so I contacted a friend I knew to have shares and got his code. I think you get some free beer after 5 referrals and they then stack with other rewards as they increase. The top one is 40 referrals where you get an all expenses paid trip to the brewery and brew a beer and stuff like that. There's a chart on the site that shows that 1st place so far is someone with 26 referrals so there's a bit to go for that guy but it seems achievable.
Now that I have become an equity punk, I have my own referral code. If you are thinking of investing, make sure to get a referral code from someone you know so everyone benefits. Or just use mine if you like prefer.
We were also brought down the road to their barrel warehouse where we had a tasting direct out of some of the barrels. Most of these are simply ageing with no end goal in mind. The guys will decide to do something with them as time goes on. Some might be blended, others released as special batches. It's a very impressive sight.
|Fresh off the line, not even released yet.|
You can also take a look at all of my images on my Flickr page. Here's a direct link to the Brewdog images.
A big thanks to Brewdog for arranging the media visit. It was a lot of fun and at the end of the day, James and Martin are really nice guys who just love making the best beer that they can.
