Black Star Co-op Pub & Brewery
Owned and managed by a cooperative made up of its workers and the community, Black Star Co-op supports fair wages, sources its ingredients from local farms, and elects its governing board democratically. Sound strident? It isn't: It manages to have a fun, laid-back atmosphere, and offers a range of house-brewed beers (and a few worthy brews brought in from outside the coop) as well as a food menu that encompasses both healthy and wicked, both bar snacks and full meals.
