Help support your MeetupChip in
We are a growing group of dedicated volunteers with a goal of opening California's FIRST Co-Operative Brewpub! We are passionate about customer service, great food (supporting local and organic farms where possible), craft beer, livable wages and a democratically owned and operated business. Our idea of Co-op will apply to both the member-owners as well as the paid staff that operate the business.
Our member-owners will have great benefits (many yet to be determined) but may be closely modeled from Black Star Co-op Brewpub in Austin, Texas:
Some of the benefits may include:
We want to connect to our community and give back to them what they give to us. We also strive to establish relationships with other Co-Op businesses to collaborate and grow Co-Op businesses together by supporting each other and our community as best we can.
This is how Black Star describes their co-op Business:
"Co-operatives are businesses owned by the people who use its services or who work at it. 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!"
