Investing in drinks companies, with Equity Mates Podcast: S13E11

Bryce Leske and Alec Lenehan of Equity Mates Investing Podcast

Most of us don’t think twice about going to a brewery to buy a beer, but have you ever thought about buying into the business?

This episode, it’s podcast host versus podcast hosts as I chat to Bryce Leske and Alec Renehan from investing podcast Equity Mates about putting your money where your mouth is.

Equity Mates has been educating Australians about investing in a jargon-free, informal style 2017.

Five hundred episodes later, they run a network of nine money-related podcasts, and will host FinFest, Australia’s biggest investing festival, in Sydney this October.

This interview was a chance to get Bryce and Alec’s insights on some of the recent developments at ASX-listed companies like Treasury Wine Estates, Lark Distilling, Top Shelf International, Good Drinks and Mighty Craft, all of whom have previously featured on Drinks Adventures in one way or another.

It’s not all about the share market, though. Bryce and Alec had a lot of say about the psychology behind investing, and whether equity crowdfunding is good for drinks companies (or your bank balance).

Australian producers are increasingly turning to equity crowdfunding to raise capital. Just in the last couple of months, there’s been successful campaigns from Bridge Road Brewers, Akasha Brewing, Bakery Hill Distillery and Republic of Fremantle Distilling.

There’s more opportunities than ever before for drinks enthusiasts like you and I to get some skin in the game.

So, if you’ve ever wanted to learn the difference between an IPO and an IPA, here’s your chance.
