A lot of people growing up imagine how cool it would be to own their own brewery. Well we did anyway. And even though it turns out it’s not quite as glamorous as we used to believe, we’re still pretty happy to have ended up doing what we do.

So when we sat around the boardroom throwing around promotion ideas, we thought that rather than giving away the usual prizes of branded bbqs or rugby gear (which, let’s be honest, are eye-wateringly boring), we would give away a bit of our brewery!

So we’re giving away 10 lots of 1,000 shares in Moa. You can either keep them or cash them in for money to buy a BBQ or some rugby gear.

And because some people don’t really find share market stuff very exciting, we thought that we should offer a few more prizes, to keep things interesting. So we’re also giving away some actual bits from the brewery itself. The things we’re giving away aren’t really worth much, but they all have interesting stories attached and we are in the process of building a new brewery, so it was a good way of offloading all our crap. Exciting!

To enter, all you have to do is buy a specially marked Moa beer pack from a participating store, find a prize certificate inside, and instantly win some shares or some bits from the brewery. We made it pretty simple. Right-oh.


Terms and Conditions: The promoter of the ‘OWN A BIT OF A BREWERY’ promotion (“Promotion”) is Moa Brewing Company Limited (“Moa”), 258 Jacksons Road, RD3, Blenheim, Marlborough, New Zealand.  The Promotion commences 5 August 2013 and closes 29 November 2013 (“Promotion Period”).  The Promotion is open to New Zealand residents who are 18 years of age and over who purchase the specially marked Moa beer during the promotion period.  Employees and their immediate families of Moa and its agencies associated with the Promotion are ineligible to participate.  For a chance to win an instant prize, you must purchase any specially marked Moa beer promotional pack (featuring a label that refers to this Promotion) (“Moa Pack”) from a participating store in New Zealand during the Promotion Period.

Only winning Moa Packs contain a prize certificate and each eligible customer who purchases a Moa beer pack containing a prize certificate will win instantly  There are 20 instant prizes to be won consisting of: (a) 10 Moa Share Prize Certificates. Each share prize certificate is redeemable for 1,000 existing shares in Moa Group Limited, which as at 20 June 2013 had a closing market price of $1.18 per share on the NZX main board ; and (b) 10 Other Prize Certificates.

      Hit up any Dan Murphy’s store in Melbourne, Mandeep. They currently stock Moa Methode (Pilsner), Moa Blanc (Wheat Lager) and 99 Not Out SKW Pale Ale. Cheers, and happy hunting!

    Love your beer! & Enjoyed visiting your brewery while we were in NZ. Unfortunately I am living in California. There is a shop near me that I can purchase MOA but rules say you must be a NZ resident. Is that correct?

    After hearing the Moa story from Josh on Friday at the Harcourts Awards and then tasting a couple of your great range of beers I’m definitely going to look out a local supplier here in Tauranga…. I also have friends from the UK who will be in the Moa Brewery locality in the next 2 weeks and I’ll be sending them over for a tour and to pick up some supplies.

    Great idea, did not buy the beer today for the competition but as the “Moa Original 330ml 6pk” is a open packet where do you hide the Prize Certificate (assuming it has one that is..)?
    Great company by the way and worthy of Share investment.. Even if you have to buy them..

    Keep up the good work and the great products.. Just wish it was easier to find.
