Beer Brewery: America's first brewery co-op

Something for our fans in Texas:
The Black Star Co-op Pub and Brewery in Austin, TX is something quite unique.

"With a special focus on local producers, the basic mission and principles of the Black Star Co-op is to foster an environment in which member-owners, as well as the general public, may realize the principles of co-operative ownership, worker self-management, education and community action through the responsible enjoyment great beer and food.
As the first enterprise of this type, we seek to realize an alternative business model for brewpubs and to help expand the co-operative movement into new and innovative areas — both in Austin and around the world."
