Where local people, craft beers, education and fun times meet
Welcome to Hopsters – Australia’s first co-operative brewery which is community owned and locally grown in Sydney.
Hopsters was set up so the community, as member-owners, can get involved as much or as little as they wish to create the brewery, produce member-driven craft beers and access brewing education. And even if you don’t want to take part in the brewing process, it’s still a fantastic way to meet a large group of like minded people, attend social events, drink great craft beers and above all, have lots of fun!
To get involved, you simply pay a one time, lifetime membership fee with no risk and no liability. After that, you can decide if you want to participate in brewing, attend brewing education events, organise or attend craft beer crawls or other social events and activities – it’s entirely up to you.
It’s easy to join us
Keen to get involved? Simply head over to our membership page to purchase your membership. Once you’re a member, we’ll keep you in the loop with email updates on events and activities.
We started taking memberships in December 2016 and now have over 100 members, with more added every week. If you’re one of the first 250 members to join, you’ll also receive a free Hopsters t-shirt and other additional benefits – you can find out more on the Membership page.
What’s the plan from here?
Our planned milestones include launching our first range of member-driven beers, once we have sufficient funds, opening our own Hopsters BrewBar, then a Hopsters Craft Beer Bar and then our full commercial brewery. In the meantime, we’re busy organising our first brewing competitions and putting together lots of social events and activities.
If you’ve any questions, feel free to get in touch with us. We’ll be happy to help.
