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: IPA3

Jul 2018

This beer is a no frills, straight up West Coast inspired IPA blasted with Citra, Centennial and Amarillo hops. We didn’t invent the IPA, we just made one. 7.0%ABV 51IBU

Hop Flight Night

Jul 2018

We brewed an IPA base beer with only bittering hops and then dry hopped 4 separate kegs with 4 different individual hops, respectively. This event was designed, with the hop heads in mind, to allow you to get the true experience of one particular variety of hop and how it contributes flavor to the same base beer. While this is not a true SMASH beer (single malt and single hop), it serves a similar purpose, with the focus being on the dry hop addition. We will be releasing all 4 of these kegs on July 26th, and will serve flights of all 4 as a side by side comparison.
