What do we mean member driven beer exactly?
It means we will aim to develop our beer styles using input from our members and make styles that will therefore appeal to our membership.
No other commercial brewery in the area is a co-operative that builds their beer list based on the contributions and requests from their members. Elsewhere you can go to the finest brew-pub in this country – but you will never be able to submit YOUR RECIPE into a competition that might go on to be developed in to a beer that goes on tap as an offering at the brewery’s tasting room.
As a co-operative, we have a very unique model compared to the operation of other craft breweries. We have sourced, and will continue to source, recipes for our beers from our membership. Home brewers in the co-operative may have the opportunity to get their beer on tap at Hopsters if their recipe wins a competition.
