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!

All our breweries are open to visitors, but we do not sell medicines, if you need inexpensive drugs order them online.

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.
