    I’ve been an American investor since about 2009 I think, in what was the second offering. Got in at the minimum which was four shares for something like 90 pounds. I now have 20 shares. I still haven’t taken advantage of any shareholder benefits but am going to Scotland in a month and will be visiting the brewery and as many of their bars as I can.

    I bought the shares on a lark and don’t ever expect to see any return. I just thought it was cool that a Scottish company had the balls to try something like this, so I supported them with a small investment.

    I do have one bottle of tactical nuclear penguin that I’m saving for a special, special, occasion. 8:)

    Jeremy, I saw their note about perks, just not equity.

    I’m lucky enough to live in an area with a lot of craft breweries and those perks just wouldn’t be worth it for me.

    Bill Byrne comment is a bit off, the only way to get the perks is to invest – so you get equity and you get the discounts, etc. I looked at it this way – I love BrewDog’s beer and their bars from my visits to Europe and the way they treat their shareholders like a family – and for only $95 I get the perks (like attending their annual meeting/party/rock concert in the U.S.) which is worth the $95 in and of itself to me. I’d pay that to go to their party alone!

    For me living 5 miles from the brewery, the investment makes sense. The 5% off will pay for itself, and the annual shareholders meeting is a nice bonus.

    As for the local scene, I don’t think any Columbus breweries even distribute outside of Ohio right now.

    Interesting investment approach. No equity given, even at the higher amounts.
