An Australian brewer has sold just about everything to keep his company open, but he's giving away ownership in his business to anyone who buys enough beer.


Broo Beer will give you 10 shares of company stock for each carton you buy through its Live the Dream website promotion. You have to buy online and do it before the end of the month. Sorry, global beer/finance lovers; this offer is for Australians only, so spread the word to your friends down under.

Broo seems like a spunky start-up from its various product descriptions: "We treat our beer like beer, it's what beer was before all the tossers tried to treat it like wine."

For a double whammy of a promotional incentive, $1 from every carton purchased goes to flood-affected communities still recovering from the torrents that caused car-moving waves to flow through Brisbane in early January.
