Almost 10,000 people invested in the latest £4.25m fundraising drive from BrewDog, the company has said.

The third Equity for Punks share offer reached its extended £4.25m target in December, more than a month before the official deadline.

According to the Scottish brewer and pub operator, the average investment was £426 and the largest single investment was £25,000.

People from 22 different countries invested in the scheme. The money raised will be used to expand its pub and brewery business in the UK and overseas.


BrewDog said: “Closing early only goes to show just how passionate and evangelic craft beer drinkers are. We can’t wait to return the trust our investors have shown in us with more awesome beers, bars and growth in 2014.

“We have some pretty big plans for 2014 and we are excited that our Equity Punk investors will be part of them. The phenomenal success of Equity for Punks has proven how much the public believes in our mission to make other people as passionate about great craft beer as we are.”

BrewDog is targeting five bar openings in 2014, including overseas launches in Tokyo and Sao Paulo, and possibly Gothenburg and Rome. Possible new UK locations include Liverpool, Cardiff, Brixton in south London, Brighton and Dundee.
