Earlier this month, BrewDog launched its highly anticipated Equity for Punks US campaign on BankRoll. In a matter of days, the initiative topped $1 million in indications of interest. Now, the Scottish brewery has released new info about the campaign’s success, including what states have pitched in the most funding.
“We love the USA and the diversity of styles its brewers are responsible for; as anyone who has been there knows, this is indicative of the country itself – each of the States has a unique personality, feel and character. But which can celebrate the highest number of Equity Punks so far?”
The Top 5 were the following:
5. Florida: 4% of USA Equity Punks
4. Pennsylvania: 4% of USA Equity Punks
3. Texas: 5% of USA Equity Punks
2. California: 8% of USA Equity Punks
1. Ohio: 38% of USA Equity Punks
Not surprising that Ohio was dubbed number 1 on the list, considering the fact that BrewDog’s new brewery will be build just outside the Buckeye State’s capital. The 100,000 square foot brewery notably will feature a restaurant, taproom, retail space, visitor center and beer garden. The brewery is scheduled to open in late 2016 with first brews scheduled for release in November.
The company added:
“It’s great to see so much interest in our brewery in America – and these new hotbeds of BrewDog shareholders will really help us out when it comes to selecting locations for our upcoming US BrewDog bars – so new Equity Punks, you may well have extra reason to celebrate!”
BrewDog’s beer roster is lead by the flagship brew, Punk IPA, an India Pale Ale. BrewDog’s portfolio of beers includes the West Coast pale ale Dead Pony Club; oatmeal milk stout Jet Black Heart; complex American red ale 5AM Saint; and 21st-century lager, Kingpin. BrewDog is set to host its first event in Columbus on September 24th.
