Initial (Beer) Can Offering

Only in California: A San Francisco company is combing a craft brewery with a crowdfunding campaign for an Initial Coin Offering for stock to be celebrated by a beer called ICO.

On July 11, Seven Stills Brewery & Distillery will release it’s ICO India Pale Ale that will contain a token that grants the drinker up to 100 free shares in the company for every minimum ($500) investment made.

They call it an “Initial Can Offering.”

The company is trying to raise $1 million at $10/share to build a new brewery near the Golden State Warriors arena.

Probably the most expensive can of beer ever (unless you buy one at an NFL game).

(PS: If you join their mailing list, you get a free beer).
