)-- In just three weeks, the BuyABeerCompany.com bid to purchase the Pabst Brewing Company has reached over $14.75 million dollars, which has been pledged by over 750,000 individuals in this crowdsourcing first.
Spread by word of mouth via social media networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook and various blogging communities, the Hollywood based Forza Migliozzi and the Big Apple's own The Ad Store have created an overwhelming success in raising pledged capital via crowdsourcing. From two advertising agencies joining forces to start BuyABeerCompany.com to the over 750,000+ individuals who have pledged, BuyABeerCompany.com has become The largest crowdsourced project.
Fearing what was once America's most famous brewery could be America's last, the over 750,000 pledges, averaging $19.50 per individual, have poured in with great speed and much adoration for the product and the unique opportunity. "Save PBR" "Keep Milwaukee proud" "Unite Men, Women. Together we can save & buy Pabst Brewing Co. Spread the word."
Michael Migliozzi, managing partner of Forza Migliozzi and Brian Flatow, President of The Ad Store released a joint statement on the amazingly successful tone this project has taken on, "What better way to reach a goal than to crowdsource mass numbers of individuals who have both passion for a project and the desire to follow through with their investment once the goal has been reached. We couldn't be more excited as we move toward our goal."
As the principles of crowdsourcing suggest this "offer of a lifetime" is open to anyone (21 years or older), anywhere that has $5.00 USD. For the cost of a single bottle of beer, you will have crowdsourced ownership in Pabst Brewing Company.
