A.Operating Results Overview  

BrewDog USA Inc. (“BrewDog” or the “Company” “Us” or “We”) was formed on April 22, 2015, as a Delaware Corporation, for the general purpose of brewing and distributing craft beer in the United States. BrewDog is majority owned by BrewDog Plc, a United Kingdom company. BrewDog has built a brewery in Columbus, Ohio to manufacture its craft beer for national distribution across the U.S., as well as wholesale and retail sales and also to operate local retail bar/restaurant and hotel establishments, which may have small brewing facilities on site that will operate under the name “BrewDog” and will sell BrewDog beer, along with food items.

 

Results of Operations

 

The period of January 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021

 

Revenue. Total revenue for the period of January 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021 was $14,797,422 primarily in wholesale craft beer sales and drink and food sales from our bars.

 

Cost of Sales. Cost of sales for the period of January 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021 were $9,654,053. Cost of sales for the period comprised of Brewery raw material costs, packaging costs,


2


manufacturing labor and overhead as well as Bar drink and food purchases and labor for preparing and serving.

 

Administrative Expenses. Operating expenses for the period of January 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021 were $5,809,733. Operating expenses for the period were comprised of advertising, marketing, payroll, real estate taxes, insurance, and other administrative expenses.

 

Gain on loan forgiveness. During the period of January 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021, the SBA granted forgiveness of the SBA Loan under the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”). At the time of forgiveness, principal and accrued interest totaling $1,864,541

 

Net Loss. Net loss for the period of January 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021 was $(316,046). This net loss was primarily due to operating expenses exceeding early stage operating revenues combined with extra costs and business interruption caused by the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

 

 

B.Liquidity and Capital Resources 

 

We had net cash of $1,485,645 at June 30, 2021.

 

During the period of January 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021, operating activities provided cash of $32,776 primarily due to the aforementioned gain on loan forgiveness and net changes in working capital accounts.

 

Cash used by investing activities during the period of January 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021 was $(2,145,053) related to capital expenditures.  Cash provided by financing activities during the period of January 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021 was $2,716,867 and was related to proceeds from borrowings, advances from BrewDog Plc and proceeds of the sale of stock. Since inception, our capital needs have primarily been met by BrewDog Plc.

 

C.Plan of Operations 

 

Our plan of operation for the period of January 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021 is as follows:

 

As of June 30, 2021, BrewDog expanded distribution of our craft beer to 4 additional states (Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas). In 2020, our distribution was expanded to 18 states, Washington D.C. and Canada.  We plan to continue state expansion throughout 2021.  We continue to experiment and development new varieties of beer, cider and hard seltzer. In 2021 we brewed over 100 different styles of brews.  Beginning in February 2018, the company entered a contract brewing arrangement with a regional craft brewery whereby we produce and package their beer brands. We plan to continue to contract brew throughout 2021. We continue to operate the taproom and hotel at the Columbus brewery; two BrewDog Bars in Columbus, Ohio; a bar in Indianapolis, IN; a bar in Cincinnati, Ohio and a bar in Pittsburgh, PA. In the second half of 2021, we plan to open a bar in New Albany, Ohio as well as a bar in Cleveland, Ohio.  We have hired and plan to hire staff to run our business and to help us follow through on our business plans.

D.Trend Information 

 

Based on our results since inception, BrewDog believes there is an active market for our products in North America. However, it is difficult to predict changing consumer preferences in craft beer. If we are unable to react to changing consumer preferences, our sales could decrease. Additionally, BrewDog sells its beer within a three-tier system consisting of manufacturers, distributors and retailers. BrewDog competes for a share of the distributor's attention, time and selling efforts. In retail establishments, BrewDog competes for shelf space and tap handle placement. Failure to maintain distributor's attention or retail space could cause sales to decrease. If the market price for hops, malt, barley or other brewing ingredients rises, BrewDog's product cost will rise and potentially threaten the Company's ability to meet profitability and/ or demand.  It is important for BrewDog to continue to secure funding in order to grow the business and expand its offerings to meet consumer preferences.  

 

E.Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements 

 

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors.

 

F.Critical Accounting Policies 

 

We have identified the policies outlined below as critical to our business operations and an understanding of our results of operations. The list is not intended to be a comprehensive list of all our accounting policies. In many cases, the accounting treatment of a particular transaction is specifically dictated by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, with no need for management's judgment in their application. The impact and any associated risks related to these policies on our business operations is discussed throughout Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations where such policies affect our reported and expected financial results. Note that our preparation of the consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of our consolidated financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. There can be no assurance that actual results will not differ from those estimates.

 

Income taxes are one such critical accounting policy. Income taxes are recorded on an accrual basis of accounting based on tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. A tax position is defined as a position in a previously filed tax return or a position expected to be taken in a future tax filing that is reflected in measuring current or deferred income tax assets and liabilities. Tax positions are recognized only when it is more likely than not (i.e., likelihood of greater than 50%), based on technical merits, that the position would be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. Tax positions that meet the more likely than not threshold are measured using a probability-weighted approach as the largest amount of tax benefit that is greater than 50% likely of being realized upon settlement. Income taxes are accounted for using an asset and liability approach that requires the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for the


4


expected future tax consequences of events that have been recognized in our financial statements or tax returns. A valuation allowance is established to reduce deferred tax assets if all, or some portion, of such assets will more than likely not be realized. Should they occur, our policy is to classify interest and penalties related to tax positions as income tax expense. Since our inception, no such interest or penalties have been incurred.

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (ASC Topic 606), which replaces numerous requirements in U.S. GAAP, including industry-specific requirements, and provides companies with a single revenue recognition model for recognizing revenue from contracts with customers. On January 1, 2018, we adopted the requirements of ASC Topic 606 and all the related amendments to all our contracts using the modified retrospective method. Additional disclosures required by ASC Topic 606 are presented within the aforementioned Revenue Recognition policy disclosure. We recognize revenue on Brewery product sales to distributors or through self-distribution at the time when the product is shipped and control of the product is transferred to the customer according to the shipping terms. Revenue from the Brewery Taproom and two bars are recognized as revenue at the point of the delivery of meals and services. Revenue from room sales at our hotel is recognized on a daily basis, as the room are occupied and we have rendered the services.  Company sales are presented net of sales tax.

 

G.Additional Company Matters 

 

The Company has not filed for bankruptcy protection nor has it ever been involved in receivership or similar proceedings. The Company is not presently involved in any legal proceedings material to the business or financial condition of the Company. The Company does not anticipate any material reclassification, merger, consolidation, or purchase or sale of a significant amount of assets not in the ordinary course of business, in the next 12 months.

2. Significant Accounting Policies

 

Presentation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of BrewDog and its wholly owned subsidiaries. BrewDog prepares its consolidated financial statements on the accrual basis of accounting in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). All intercompany balances and transactions of BrewDog and its wholly owned subsidiaries have been eliminated in consolidation. As of June 30, 2021, BrewDog Plc uses a centralized approach to treasury services to perform cash management for the operations of its affiliates, including BrewDog. As a result, BrewDog Plc funds BrewDog’s operating and investing activities, as needed, and any cash generated by BrewDog is transferred to BrewDog Plc. BrewDog Plc will provide financial support as required to BrewDog for a period of not less than 12 months from September 25, 2021.

BrewDog USA Inc.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (continued)


2. Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

 

Accounting estimates

 

The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in accordance with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Although management bases its estimates on historical experience and assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, actual results could differ from those estimates.

Fair value measurement

 

We are required to determine the fair value of financial assets and liabilities based on the price that would be received to sell the asset or pay to transfer the liability to a market participant. Fair value is a market-based measurement, not an entity-specific measurement. The fair value of certain assets and liabilities approximates carrying value, because of the short-term nature of the accounts, including other current assets and accounts payable.

Common stock

 

BrewDog issued common stock with no voting rights to the public in a series of Regulation A crowdfunding offerings in 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018, and 2017 as follows:

 

 

Picture 3 

In 2016, our Board of Directors approved a stock split of 63,157.89 to one outstanding common share. At the same time, the authorized number of common shares was increased to 10,000,000. All per share and share amounts in the accompanying consolidated financial statements and notes to the consolidated financial statements have been adjusted to reflect the stock split.

BrewDog USA Inc.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (continued)


2. Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

 

Revenue

 

During the period of January 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021, revenue consisted of sales of our beer to United States-based distributors and through self-distribution; sales of beer under a contract brewing arrangement; retail sales of beer, wine, food and merchandise at our bars; and rentals of rooms at our hotel. Sales of products are for cash or otherwise agreed-upon credit terms. BrewDog’s accounting policy is to exclude excise taxes from the measurement of revenues. Our payment terms vary by customer; however, the time period between when revenue is recognized and when payment is due is not significant. Revenue is measured as the amount of consideration we expect to receive in exchange for the sale of our product. Our sales to distributors are purchase order driven and have a single performance obligation. Revenue is recognized at the point in time when control transfers and our obligation has been fulfilled, which is when the related goods are shipped or delivered to the customer, depending upon method of distribution and shipping terms. Our contract brewing sales are purchase order driven and revenue is recognized when control over the finished product transfers to the customer, which is when the specified order is delivered. At our hotel, we have performance obligations to provide accommodations to hotel guests. We are entitled to a fixed nightly fee for an agreed-upon period. These fees are payable at the time the hotel guest checks out of the hotel. We recognize the revenue from room sales on a daily basis, as the rooms are occupied and we have rendered the services. Retail sales for merchandise, beer, and food at the taproom and bars are recognized at the point of sale to the customer. Percentages of sales by selling channel are as follows:

Major customers

 

For the period of January 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021, one major customer accounted for at least 10% of revenues. This customer accounted for 17% and 21% of our 2021 and 2020 revenue, respectively.

 

Shipping and Handling

 

BrewDog records freight costs billed to customers for shipping and handling as revenue. Shipping and handling expense related to costs incurred to deliver product are recognized within cost of revenue. BrewDog accounts for shipping and handling activities that occur after control has transferred as a fulfillment cost rather than a separate performance obligation, and the costs of shipping and handling are recognized concurrently with the related revenue.

BrewDog USA Inc.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (continued)


2. Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

 

Cost of revenue

 

Cost of revenue for our brewing operations consists primarily of raw materials, labor and overhead costs. These costs include brewing materials, such as hops and malts, packaging materials, including cans, both direct and indirect labor, facility costs, inbound freight charges, utilities, maintenance costs, and other manufacturing overhead. Cost of revenue for our bar consists primarily of direct costs for labor, beer, wine, food and merchandise. The components of cost of net revenue are variable in nature, change with sales volume, are influenced by product mix and are subject to increases or decreases based on fluctuations in commodity costs.

 

Operating expenses

 

Administrative expenses are expensed as incurred, and also include all directly attributable costs from BrewDog Plc.

 

Foreign currency

 

The majority of our expenditures are denominated in U.S. dollars. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are translated into U.S. dollars at the rates of exchange prevailing at the consolidated balance sheet date. Transactions in foreign currencies are recorded at the prevailing rate at the date of the transaction, with foreign currency transaction gains and losses recorded in the consolidated statements of comprehensive loss.

 

Income taxes

 

We account for income taxes using the asset and liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates in the respective jurisdictions in which we operate. We assess the realizability of deferred tax assets and provide a valuation allowance for deferred tax assets when it is more likely than not that at least a portion of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The realizability of deferred tax assets depends on our ability to generate sufficient taxable income within the carryback or carryforward periods provided for in the tax law for each applicable tax jurisdiction and also considers all available positive and negative evidence.

 

A tax position is defined as a position in a previously filed tax return or a position expected to be taken in a future tax filing that is reflected in measuring current or deferred income tax assets and liabilities. Tax benefits from uncertain tax positions are recognized when it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained upon examination of the technical merits of the position, including resolutions of any related appeals or litigation processes. The amount recognized is measured as the largest amount of tax benefit that is greater than 50% likely of being realized upon settlement. See Note 8 for additional information.

Accounts receivable

 

Accounts receivable are included in prepaid expenses and other current assets in the consolidated balance sheets. We derive the majority of our revenues from sales of our products to distributors and directly to the public. We establish an allowance for doubtful accounts on a case-by-case basis, considering changes in the financial position of a customer, when we believe the required payment of specific amounts owed to us is unlikely to occur. At June 30, 2021 and December 31,2020, we had no allowances for doubtful accounts.

Incentives and other reductions

 

In the course of selecting Columbus, Ohio, as the North American headquarters, BrewDog received agreements for certain economic incentives from various governmental entities. The incentives include employee income tax withholding reductions, training grants and development grants for fixed asset investments totaling approximately $1,000,000 that require BrewDog to meet certain investment, job and payroll amounts to receive the incentives. These incentives will be available to BrewDog through 2026. Additionally, BrewDog received a 15-year property tax abatement for the North American headquarters. These various incentives are recognized when there is reasonable assurance that the incentives will be received and BrewDog will be able to comply with the conditions attached to the incentives. At that time, the incentives will be recognized either in the consolidated statements of comprehensive loss for incentives related to income or the consolidated balance sheets for incentives related to assets in a systematic and rational basis over the periods in which the incentive applies and/or as expenses/costs for which the incentives are intended to compensate are incurred.

 

Cash and cash equivalents

 

BrewDog considers all highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less at the time of purchase to be cash and cash equivalents.

 

Prepaid expenses and other current assets

 

Prepaid expenses consist of various payments that BrewDog has made in advance for goods or services to be received in the future. These prepaid expenses include advance payment for software, furniture, and service contracts requiring up-front payments.

 

Inventories

 

Inventories consist of raw materials, work in process and finished goods. Raw materials, which principally consist of hops, malts, barley, other brewing ingredients and packaging materials, are stated at the lower of cost (first-in, first-out) or net realizable value. The cost elements of work in process and finished goods inventory consist of raw materials, direct labor and manufacturing overhead. Work in process is beer held in tanks prior to packaging. Finished goods include retail merchandise and packaged beer. A significant change in the timing or level of demand for certain products, as compared to forecasted amounts, may result in recording provisions for excess or expired inventory in the future.

Property and equipment

 

Tangible fixed assets, other than land, are stated at cost or valuation less depreciation. Depreciation is provided at rates calculated to write off the cost or valuation less estimated residual value of each asset over its expected useful life, as follows:

1. Land

Not depreciated

 

 

2. Assets under construction

Not depreciated

 

 

3. Computer equipment

2 – 3 years of life on straight-line basis

 

 

4. Motor vehicles

5. Fixtures and fittings

10% – 25% on declining balance and 4 years of life on straight-line basis

 

 

6. Property and equipment

10% – 25% on declining balance and 2-4 years of life on straight-line basis

 

 

7. Buildings

4 – 50 years of life on straight-line basis

 

 

8. Leasehold improvements

Lesser of remaining term of lease or estimated useful life of the asset

 

Certain brewing equipment, included within property and equipment, is depreciated at 10% on the reducing balance method and has been allocated a residual value, dependent on the tank’s use.

 

BrewDog capitalized interest of $0 and $0 in 2021 and 2020, respectively.

 

Depreciation expense was $1,469,847 and $1,470,223 for the six months ending June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

 

Deferred revenue

 

Proceeds from non-equity crowdfunding as well as sales of gift cards are recorded as deferred revenue within accruals and other current liabilities and recognized in the consolidated statements of comprehensive loss once the related products have been delivered.

 

Subsequent events

 

BrewDog has evaluated subsequent events occurring after the balance sheet date and through September 25, 2020, the date these consolidated financial statements were available to be issued.  BrewDog has received approximately $1,420,000 to be used on various operating costs, subsequent to the year end, through, September 25, 2020.

Company Response to COVD-19

 

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization designated COVID-19 as a global pandemic. BrewDog began seeing the impact of COVID-19 in mid-March 2020 as various policies were implemented by federal, state and local governments in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, such as stay-at-home orders and business closures. As a result, BrewDog temporarily closed its bars and hotel with the exception of carry-out food and in-home beer delivery in the central-Ohio market. The Company also experienced significant reduction in keg demand from its on-premise channel. After the initial closure, the Company also experienced intermittent temporary closures of certain bars.  At the beginning of 2021, three of the six BrewDog locations were temporarily closed.  During March 2021, BrewDog Cincinnati and BrewDog Pittsburgh reopened followed by BrewDog Indianapolis in April 2021.

A variety of federal, state, and local efforts have been initiated in response to the COVID-19 crisis, the largest of which is the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (“CARES” Act) that was enacted on March 27, 2020.

The Company received a $1.9 million note payable from J.P. Morgan pursuant to the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP Loan”) under the CARES Act. The PPP Loan bears interest at a fixed annual rate of 1.00% with the first six months of interest deferred. In March, the Company applied for forgiveness of the PPP Loan in accordance with the terms of the CARES Act. In April, the SBA granted forgiveness of the PPP Loan and all applicable interest. The forgiveness was classified as a gain on loan forgiveness in the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Loss.

The CARES Act also provides for a deferral of payments of the employer portion of payroll tax incurred during the pandemic, allowing half of such payroll taxes to be deferred until December 2021 and the remaining half deferred until December 2022. As of June 30, 2021, BrewDog deferred $601,000 of payroll taxes.

The Company entered into a $150,000 Loan Authorization Agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration pursuant to the Economic Injury Disaster Loans assistance program (“EIDL Loan”). The EIDL Loan proceeds are available to be used for working capital and normal operating expenses.

In December 2020, the Coronavirus Response and Relief Act was passed which opened up a second round of PPP Loans.  In March 2021, the company received a payable from Huntington Bancshares for $2 million.  The PPP Loan proceeds are available to be used for payroll costs, including salaries, commissions, group health care benefits, paid leave, rent, utilities, and interest on outstanding debt.

3. Accounting Pronouncement Recently Adopted

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. The guidance requires companies to measure credit losses utilizing a methodology that reflects expected credit losses and requires the consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to inform credit loss estimates. ASU 2016-13 is

effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years. BrewDog adopted the standard during fiscal 2020 and there was no material impact on the consolidated financial statements.

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes. The standard includes multiple key provisions, including removal of certain exceptions to ASC 740, Income Taxes, and simplification in several other areas such as accounting for a franchise tax (or similar tax) that is partially based on income. ASU 2019-12 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company adopted the standard in the first quarter of fiscal 2021 and there was no material impact on the consolidated financial statements.

Recently Issued Financial Accounting Standards Not Yet Adopted

 

We address the adoption impact of recently issued accounting standards by the FASB in our consolidated financial statements as well as material updates to previous assessments, if any, from our fiscal 2020 Form 1-K. There were no accounting standards issued in fiscal 2021 that will have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

8. Income Taxes

 

To assess the realization of deferred tax assets, we consider whether it is more likely than not that all or a portion of the deferred tax assets will not be realized prior to expiration. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the period in which those temporary differences become deductible. We consider the scheduled reversal of deferred tax liabilities, projected future taxable income and tax planning strategies in making this assessment. Our scheduling of the timing difference reversals indicated that deferred tax liabilities may not reverse in a sufficient time to allow us to utilize all net operating losses before expiration. As a result, valuation allowances of $3,784,700 and $3,623,699 were recorded against the deferred tax assets at June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively.

 

9. Commitments and Contingencies

 

Operating Leases

 

BrewDog leases bar and brewery facilities under noncancelable operating lease agreements. The lease agreements require BrewDog to pay taxes, maintenance, insurance and other occupancy expenses. BrewDog’s lease agreements for bar locations are for five to fifteen-year periods with renewal options for additional five-year periods. As the rate implicit in each lease is not readily determinable, the Company uses its incremental borrowing rate based on information available at commencement to determine the present value of the lease payments. Based on the present value of the lease payments for the remaining lease term of the Company’s existing leases, the Company recognized ROU assets and lease liabilities of $2.4 million upon adoption of ASU No. 2016-02 on January 1, 2019. ROU assets and lease liabilities commencing after January 1, 2019 are recognized at commencement date based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. Leases with an initial term of 12 months or less (“short-term leases”) are not recorded on the balance sheet and are recognized on a straight-line basis over the lease term. As of June 30, 2021, total ROU assets and lease liabilities were as follows:

10. Operating Segments

 

BrewDog operates in a single operating segment and, thus, a single reporting segment. Our chief operating decision maker evaluates the performance of the business overall, with the mindset that our hotel and food offerings at our bars serve to build the strength of our brand.

 

11. Related Party Transactions

 

Our operations are funded by BrewDog Plc as an intercompany balance, repayable on demand. Total funding provided during the period of January 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021 and 2020 amounted to $396,637 and $687,385, respectively.

 

The payable of $41,263,936 to BrewDog Plc included in the consolidated balance sheet at June 30, 2021 is the result of various transactions between BrewDog and BrewDog Plc. There are no terms of settlement, and interest is charged at applicable federal rates on the account balance. Total interest charged for the six-month periods ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 amounted to $25,687 and $211,348, respectively. The balance is primarily the result of the establishment of BrewDog’s operations in the United States, and BrewDog being part of BrewDog’s participation in BrewDog Plc’s cash management program, wherein all of BrewDog’s cash receipts are remitted to BrewDog Plc and all cash disbursements are funded by BrewDog Plc. Other transactions include miscellaneous administrative expenses incurred by BrewDog Plc on behalf of BrewDog.

 

BrewDog Plc provided certain services to BrewDog including, but not limited to, executive services, accounting and legal services, and other selling, general and administrative expenses. The allocation method utilized by management of BrewDog Plc for the six-month periods ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 amounted $55,466 and $38,968, respectively.

 

For the six-month periods ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, the Company paid rent of $75,000 and $75,000, respectively to Ten Tonne Mouse Inc. for its Franklinton location. Mr. James Watt is the director for both companies.
