SJ Co-op Brewpub Event at Original Gravity Tomorrow!

For all of you beer-lovers out there, the new SJ Co-op Brewpub is hosting an event along with Calicraft Brewing company over at the Original Gravity Public House. This is going to be the first co-op owned and operated brewpub in California! Ownership costs a mere $150 one-time payment, a small price to pay for being able to say you own a bar (and several other benefits). Full disclosure, I just signed up last week. For more info, just keep on reading.


SJ Co-op Brewpub is collaborating with Original Gravity on 4/13 for a co-op membership drive event from 1 - 6 pm. Stop by at any time, enjoy delicious beer, pulled pork specials, meet members from the co-op, and chat with the CaliCraft brewers! Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert will be in town that night for their "Good vs. Evil" tour; we're hoping our creative efforts will encourage them to stop by and have some beers with the gang - follow our Facebook page to learn more and get involved!

About us
San Jose Co-op Brewpub will be the first cooperative brewery in California. We are targeting 3,000 member-owners to help build and be part of this unique addition to the South Bay craft beer community. Our membership is increasing quickly at 130 members to date - now is the time to join and be part of something amazing!
The mission of the cooperative is for our members to:

*Collaboratively establish and manage a profitable brewpub
*Produce high-quality craft beers that can be paired with great, locally sourced food
*Foster a fun and enjoyable environment for owner-members, worker-members and the public
Company Overview
The Co-op Brewpub is currently made up of a small group of energetic and passionate individuals, from all walks of life, who have spent the last few months laying the ground work for the future brewpub.

We are looking for more members - homebrewers, craft beer enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, adventurists, SJ advocates, and creative people to help build the co-op from the ground up.

Members will help make major decisions in building the co-op; such as what beers to brew, what food to serve, location, and culture.

The dream of a cooperative brewpub is modeled after Black Star Co-op in Austin, Tx -
