We’re proud to be a local, independent, unionized, and cooperatively-owned brewery, and our co-op members help guarantee we’ll be part of this community for the long haul.
During this inaugural Member Drive, we are launching two brand new membership levels that make joining our co-op more accessible while also providing current members a long-awaited opportunity to amplify their support. Current and new members can enjoy tons of events, giveaways, extra discounts, and much more. It’s the perfect time to join or upgrade!
