BrewDog, the largest independent brewery in Europe, announced on Wednesday it made history by producing the first beer from its U.S. brewery, which is located in Columbus, Ohio. Earlier this month, the company launched its Equity for Punks US initiative on BankRoll. Within a matter of days, the campaign successfully secured $1 million indiction of interest.
“Today is a red-letter day for the Ohio beer scene – a milestone set to be written into brewery ledgers the length and breadth of the state. August 31st 2016 officially sees the lifting of the draconian legislation that previously made it illegal for breweries in Ohio to brew beer over 12% abv. From this day forward, craft beer in the state has no limits. And we are going to mark that in the only way we know. Our first brew in BrewDog Columbus will be The End of History, for our US Equity Punks.”
The End of History will notably be released as an exclusive beer for BrewDog’s Equity for Punks USA shareholders who invest more than $20,000. 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. Using Reg A+, BrewDog is looking to raise up to $50 million from individual investors. The offer comes with not just shares but some perks (IE discounts on beer).
BrewDog is set to host its first event in Columbus on September 24th.
