How It Works!!!

To help us brew beer in a New Ireland, we’re running a specially conceived Crowd Funding experience! Our goal is to generate donations to allow us brew beer and create a worth-while community of New Irelanders that can be part of our beer making and political adventures forever!

In return for your donation you will receive a redeemable “vote for life” in what we brew and do!

We’re looking for “Votes for Change”!

Spare change to be exact! When a successful beer has been elected with the 1000 basic 5euro donations needed (or there abouts), we’ll brew that beer. Then when it comes to brew a batch again, we’ll invite you to resubmit your original vote.

Scroll down to find out more….

What are we voting for?

To help us get to New Ireland, we’ve created 16 beer concepts, each one symbolic of our newly discovered paradise!! And it’s these beers we need you, the people, to vote on!

In return for a single donation you will receive a single vote. And this vote is a Vote for Life! We will ask you to vote again and again in the future to choose whether your favourite beer stays or goes! And we’ll do this with every batch! You only need to donate once to get a redeemable vote for life. You can of course donate more than once and as often as you like, and when you like. And each additional donation will entitle you to an additional vote. Remember, if you wish to be extra kind or would like to vote for more than one concept, then it might be better to donate using our Voucher System, as we offer more votes and influence for those wishing to offer a little extra.

You donate once, but you vote forever.

You control what beer is brewed each and every time! And you decide this for as long as we exist! If you want to change the next batch of beer, simply vote out the last one using your redeemable vote(s)! If you want to keep a beer we’ve already brewed… the choice is yours to protect it. Once we receive enough votes to launch a beer label, then the people decide its future from there on.

So donate now, and have a vote for life in what we do…. err…. brew!

The Voting Process

  • Firstly, we will reimburse ALL DONATIONS if we fail to raise enough funding for at least a single batch of beer
  • Select a beer label
  • Submit a 5euro one-off donation in return for casting your New Ireland membership vote
  • For those who want to donate more or to increase your voting power and community privileges, get a donation “Supporter Pack Coupon” and receive more votes per standard donation
  • When the time comes to brew again, we’ll allow you to resubmit your vote and choose what we brew next
  • Once you’ve donated for a vote, we won’t ask you to donate for that vote ever again. But remember, one donation equals one vote, unless you donate using our “Coupon System”. If you want more influence, then it’s up to you to vote more.
  • On occasion we may ask the community or Privileged Members to vote on other important stuff! This may or may not be available to you depending on your community status and how much support you’ve offered!
  • Conditions:
    • Each basic 5euro donation equals one vote for life and you can click a label and vote as many times as you wish
    • Once you’ve donated, you will not have to donate again to cast your vote to elect the next batch we brew – it’s a vote for life in what we do! The higher the donation, the more voting power you get!
    • Donate as many basic single votes as you like, or see our Supporter Pack Coupon System to increase your votes for less donations
    • We need roughly a minimum of 1000 basic 5euro donations to brew a beer (if we get close enough we might bend the State rules if we can cover it and depending on how special the beer or it’s production costs are)
    • If we reach 2000, or 3000 votes for example, then we will elect more beers for a batch launch and each one will be eligible for a revote by all members once the time comes to brew them again
    • Whether your chosen beer is successful or not, all the voting donations will go to the winning label
    • You can vote as often as you like
    • You can vote at any time, even if you’ve already voted. By doing so, you simply increase your voting power and expand your ballot box choices. But remember, we have voting Supporter Pack Coupons for those who want to donate more
    • You can change your vote right until the time comes to choose a winning label
    • You can club together to rig the outcome of the vote – We will happily condone Russian involvement if it means they donate votes too!
