Parrotdog - Tasty beer and shares
New Zealand has a bit of an obsession with Friday night beersies and I admit it can be one of the better moments of my week. With Parrotdog being right across the road from the BizDojo it was a great choice for the company Friday night drinks.
Our team (mainly me) has a couple of favourites. Bloodhound - A super tasty red ale with a slightly higher alcohol content than some of the others, and dead canary - a hoppy pale ale that is great on a sunny afternoon. If I'm being honest though their full range is very good!
Parrotdog tastiness can be found at 29 Vivian St or ordered online here: http://parrotdog.co.nz/
When I was lucky enough to work from The BizDojo in Wellington, I heard through the dojo grapevine that Parrotdog were using Pledgeme to bring in investment money. Given that it was our local brewery, I had tried Parrotdog many times before and knew just how tasty their beer is.
I was pretty excited at the chance to be able to: a) support an awesome NZ brand, b) buy shares for the first time, c) get 10% off future Parrotdog beer purchases.
Pledgeme makes the whole process really easy. On the site it listed all the financial information, what Parrotdog planned to do with the money that was invested, investor perks, team details etc. I wasn't the only one that invested. They were able to hit their maximum pledge amount within days from a total of 812 investors. These people now make up 16.81% of the company.
Will the shares make me rich? Maybe but who knows. However worst case scenario the 10% discount will quickly pay off the price of the shares. ;o)
