We are owned by a community of more than 3,000 individuals and organizations, and we're democratically managed by our Workers' Assembly. Co-operatives are businesses owned by the people that purchase or manage its services. You don’t have to be a member-owner to come to the brewpub, but supporting Black Star Co-op means supporting livable wages, democratic workplaces, local farms, and quality products from your community brewpub!

The best way to be involved in the Co-op is to own it. If you love us, support local businesses, believe in sustainable practices, agree with fair labor treatment, and enjoy good beer, we encourage you to become a member.



House Beer Release: Island Baby

Aug 2018

Tiki. Beer. Need we say more? We were so pleased with how Island Baby came out last year, we decided to brew it again. Inspired by a Hurricane (the tiki cocktail, not the storm, not the boxer) this delicious beer baby begins as a 9.0%ABV malty base that we age in Mt. Gay Rum barrels and then re-ferment with pineapple, passionfruit and pomegranate juice. Sip on this and be instantly transported to your favorite tropical island.
