On Friday, BrewDog announced the opening of its newest location in York. This news comes less than a month after the famous brewery opened its Germany Berlin Mitte location. While sharing details about the York location, which is located at 130-134 Micklegate, YO1 6JX, the BrewDog team stated:
“We have opened bars in the centre of historic cities before – Edinburgh, Rome, Warsaw to name but three – and yet aside from strolling past the Colosseum, York has a sense of the past that few others can match. Home to the longest medieval walls in Europe it is a place that carries its history with it, and our latest bar is inside those famous defences a hundred yards from one of the iconic gatehouses that served as the entry points to the city.”
Meanwhile, BrewDog is currently seeking a max of £10 million through its mini bond campaign on Crowdcube. As previously reported, BrewDog has raised $30 million in its ongoing crowdfunding offers in the UK, called Equity For Punks. The brewery’s USA equity crowdfunding pitch, Equity For Punks USA, has been live for several months now on BankRoll. The offer is seeking a raise of up to $50 million under Reg A+, and the company recently revealed over $3 million has been secured so far.
Funds from BrewDog’s mini bond initiative will be used to expand into more international markets, as well as invest in BrewDog’s Aberdeenshire brewery to help keep up with ever-increasing demand from European markets. The brewery also noted it would be investing some of the funds into its new American facility located in Columbus, Ohio. So far, the campaign has raised more than £3.2 million from nearly 1,100 investors. It is set to close at the end of January.
