BrewDog has been a trailblazer in the securities crowdfunding space. In the UK, BrewDog has launched multiple investment crowdfunding rounds raising more than £27 million with many craft breweries following in its path. Today, there are more than 50,000 shareholders in BrewDog UK.
This past April, BrewDog announced a £100 million investment from TSG Consumer Partners. The investment from the private equity firm delivered a $1 billion valuation to the brewery started in 2007 by two guys and a dog. Early investors in BrewDog UK were given the opportunity to redeem a small amount of shares. All investors received a gain with the longest shareholders receiving a considerably higher return. Even with the investment by TSG, BrewDog UK is still controlled by founding partners James Watt and Martin Dickie.
