Be A Part Of San Diego Beer History | Decade-Old Mission Brewery Announces Rare Investment Opportunity

October 3, 2017

Mission Brewery is launching a rare stock purchase campaign, the only opportunity of its kind in San Diego, in honor of its 10th anniversary where the San Diego community will have the opportunity to invest in the company through an online application.

Mission Brewery, one of San Diego’s most historic breweries located in East Village, is launching a stock purchase campaign unlike any other in San Diego. In honor of its 10th Anniversary, the community has the opportunity to invest in Mission Brewery through WeFunder, an online platform that connects investors to publicly and privately held companies, giving the unaccredited public the opportunity to purchase shares in the company during a two-month window. This is the first time this is being done by a brewery in San Diego and it’s the only opportunity for unaccredited investors in San Diego.

"Investing in Mission Brewery doesn’t just help the brewery but it gives San Diegans the chance to become a part of the local San Diego beer scene as more than just a consumer or home brewer," said Dan Selis, Mission Brewery president, founder and CEO. "Most beer lovers dream of opening a brewery - I was homebrewing for about 25 years before I started Mission Brewery. Now people can have the chance to make becoming part of a brewery a reality and own a piece of Mission Brewery."

Previous investor rules only allowed accredited investors with a certain income and net worth to participate in these types of lucrative investments. But the JOBS Act grants regulation crowdfunding and Title IV grants non-accredited investors (someone who does not meet the net worth requirements under the Securities & Exchange Commission’s regulations) the ability to participate in alternative investments. Virtually anyone can invest in Mission Brewery now through WeFunder.

The WeFunder platform is easy to use and calculates how much unaccredited investors can invest annually based on net worth and income. If community members are eligible and decide to invest in Mission Brewery, they can select the green button "Invest" and sign the contract all online. The minimum investment is $200 and the opportunity to invest is open online for two months only. Once the investment goal of $1 million is reached, the opportunity will be closed and hopeful investors will be put on a waiting list.

"As one of the top craft beer brands in San Diego, our goal is to bring Mission Brewery into households nation-wide and open more tasting rooms for our local San Diegans to come in and enjoy," continued Selis. "With increasing sale and bottling capacity, the already established Mission Brewery is on the rise. Now is the time to join us in investing in the company and becoming part of the local craft beer family and officially own a piece of San Diego’s beer history. This is an opportunity to own your craft."
