Blackstar Coop Brewery at the Crestview Station


Lo and behold at the Crestview Train Station is Black Star Coop Brewery and Restaurant. Found on the Metro line, it’s the only cooperatively-owned brewery across the globe. Pretty amazing to have a Coop Brewery open to anyone in the Austin community. I had a fresh beer in one hand and my lomo cameras in the other. I was one happy Lomographer!

Black Star offers 4 to 6 in-house brewed beers and 20 other commercial taps. Expect the in-house brews to have a very fresh blend of grains, fruits, and spices. While enjoying a nice locally-brewed beer, try the great menu of locally-harvested foods and ingredients. I was pretty impressed with my Elba beer and plate of fish and chips. Black Star Coop is an all around one-of-a-kind local experience.

Where else can you find a community-run brewery that’s dog friendly and has a full menu of responsibly harvested foods? Only in Austin, Texas! Black Star definitely receives the Austin stamp of approval. If you like this concept, anyone can become a member. Take a train ride around town, grab a beer, and support local business all in the same day! Cheers Lomofriends!
