By Thursday shares plunged to almost a third of its listing price. The NZX-listed stock touched a record low of 40c, well below its $1.25 listing price.
Of six options, most poll participants – 31% – felt nothing could be done to turn the craft beer business turnaround.
The next biggest proportion – 16% - said more money from major shareholders was needed.
A smaller number, 14%, suggested a board refresh was needed.
Three other options, the proposed brewery expansion, a rebrand, and better flavours all picked up 13% of participants’ votes.
