BrewDog Raises $160K In Under A Week, Announces New Goal

BrewDog may have already doubled their initial crowd fund campaign, but they aren’t stopping there. Efforts to build the DogHouse, the first Brewery/hotel combo, were overwhelmingly supported by donors all across America and riding that wave of success, BrewDog has announced additional perks and a new fundraising goal. “We’ve already committed to a craft beer tap in every bedroom, a hot tub filled with our famous Punk IPA and now an incredible rooftop bar. But we want to make it ever bigger and better,” said Co-Founder James Watt.

If the campaign reaches the adjusted goal of $200K, BrewDog promises to add a few perks. The biggest being a roof top patio overlooking the sour brewing facility. According to a press release, the company will “release a number of additional perks such as backers’ names embossed on the bar, membership with the private bar (ideal for locals looking to make use of this private craft beer venue) and the chance to hire out the entire space for private functions and parties.”

BrewDog is shaping up to have massive economic impacts on the Central Ohio region. From the jobs they’re providing to the tourism revenue they will generate, the community has welcomed them with open arms. And BrewDog has been quick to accept ideas from their fans, even encouraging folks to reach out via Twitter or Facebook to “get in on the action”.

James Watt went on to explain, “Our social media followers and Equity Punk community have been very vocal with their amazing ideas for additional perks and features they want to see us add in, and with extra funding, nothing is off-limits, so we’re keen to hear even more great suggestions. The best ones can expect to be seen on the pitch page as we develop the project.”
