WHAT IS HOPSTERS’ MISSION?
“To foster a community of beer lovers to connect, learn, create and have fun through beer.”
Collaboration – Hopsters will be the birthplace for great beer. Our members will have an integral part in designing and voting on what we brew. The beer will not simply be the Brewery’s beers, but will truly be a reflection of our members and belong to them.
Education – We believe that beer education will foster a deeper appreciation for beer. We will promote beer education through a range of on-site activities that will develop according to the wishes of our members and size of the brewery.
Community – Hopsters plans to be a viable member in the local community and across Australia. We look forward to building relationships with craft brewers, other co-ops and local businesses.
WHAT DOES ‘MEMBER DRIVEN BEER’ MEAN?
Quite simply, it means that we’ll aim to develop our beer styles using input from Hopsters members. And in turn, that means we’ll be creating beer styles that appeal to our membership.
As a co-operative, we have a very unique model compared to the operation of other craft breweries. We source, and will continue to source, recipes for our beers from our membership. Home brewer members may even have the opportunity to get their beer on tap at Hopsters, if their recipe wins a competition.
