In reality, the cost for a lifetime supply of beer is a lot more than $1000, argues National Journal. We concur.
But a one-time payment of $1,000 is how much a brewpub in Minnesota is charging customers, who then receive free in-house beer for the rest of their lives.
Amy Johnson, owner of Northbound Smokehouse & Brewpub, needed to raise $220,000 to secure a bank loan and realize her dream of opening a restaurant that served beer brewed at the pub. So Johnson and her business partners asked friends and family to each invest $1000 for a lifetime supply of in-house beer. The brewpub hit its goal of $220,000 and is now a registered LLC.
National Journal writes,
We’d totally invest $1000 in our local bar to get a lifetime supply of beer—that’s what we call a really good deal and a really smart investment.
