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.


Friendsgiving for Singles – A Charitable Event!

Nov 2019

Swoovy Friendsgiving is all about bringing the community together for fun and to do good!

We’re inviting area singles to show up for our community during the week of Thanksgiving! (Don’t worry, your non-single wingmen/wingwomen are welcome to come along too).

What better way to give thanks than to support local charity?

Friendsgiving will feature up to 10 local nonprofits who have onsite volunteer needs that can be done while drinking and socializing. The final list of partners & activities is TBD.

We will be donating $1 for every pint sold to the participating nonprofits, so drink up!
