You can get Punk IPA in some bars in Dubai these days. Only about £12 a pint

At that time the p/e was 20, basically the same as Wetherspoon or Fullers.
P/E isn't everything, and it's not close to enough to make a decision. The valuation today and the valuation at the time of the sale share are two very different things. You could say all the same about bitcoin: "How can it be a fad if I bought it for $5 and now it's worth $1000"

Your wording was completely misleading and incorrect, not just 'bad', and you also unjustly accused the company of dishonesty. However, the BA relevance by volume of these posts is now 0%, so maybe it is now time at the bar?

Indeed, BrewDog were completely transparent in their "Equity for Punks" offering. No dividend would be paid, and all profits would be re-invested or used to pay the staff. A lot of people would buy the minimum amount of shares to get the 10% discount at bars and an invite to the AGM/Piss Up in Aberdeen each year

OK. How much would you value it at? Under £25m?

Looking forward to see how this thread develops next week when you can actually drink some.
My next BA flights are the week after, so I'm hoping for some high quality unbiased tasting notes to decide whether I should give it a go.

It doesn't seem to be widely publicised, and apologies if this has already been mentioned up-thread, but BrewDog is also brewing a beer for First.

'BrewDog further explained it will also offer a small-batch exclusive beer from the BrewDog OverWorks team for those in First class on British Airways. The company added:
“We are proud to be creating a new generation of sour and wild beers with our OverWorks facility – and more proud that very soon travellers on British Airways will be able to enjoy these beers at 30,000 feet and above. AirCraft is a dry-hopped Brett-fermented IPA incorporates the rich fruity esters and flavours from Brettanomyces with the notorious tropical hops of the south pacific for a bold but balanced hop experience. For too long, taking a plane has meant a limited selection of beer on offer but we love the fact that British Airways have worked with us to make this a thing of the past. They share our belief that you should be able to enjoy amazing beer wherever you are going.” - Taken from This crowdfundinsider.com article

Also, to clarify on the BA Employee and BAEC discounts.

From one of the staffers on the BrewDog Equity Punk Forum:
'Just to update everyone on this, the following is launching for BA staff and BAEC card holders from next week (01st May)
British Airways Discount
Starting next week on May 1st, we will be offering a discount in all our bars globally for British Airways staff and Exec Club cardholders. There will be 2 different discounts as follows:
  • BA staff: 10% on all food and drink at all times upon presentation of a staff card. NOT stackable with EFP or other discounts. No expiry date.
  • Exec Club cardholders: 5% on food and drink at all times, upon presentation of a BAEC card. NOT stackable with EFP or other discounts. This discount will expire on August 31st.' - Link to post for those with access

£4,45 in the Summer BOB menu, there's also 2 new Gins and a new Champagne, Pannier Brut.

Will any of this be served in Club Europe?

I was in the BrewDog bar in NCL on Saturday and, partly because I was confused as to the start date for the BAEC discount and partly because I didn't realise it was just 5% for BAEC members, I actually managed to get 10% off all my beers there in spite of it only being 27th April.
