We are Burlington’s co-op brewery and restaurant located in the historic downtown. We believe that a strong community is built around engaged businesses that give back to their community and that there is no better model than the co-op for this purpose. Our owners are not just owners of a brewery and restaurant; they are also owners of an engine driving the revitalization of Burlington.
As a brewery, we are founded around the idea of “truly local” beer. We will source our beer recipes and inspiration through partnerships with East of Elon Home Brewing Cooperative and other local home and professional brewers. We take an active role in supporting the culture and expansion of home brewing through events at our brewery. All of our Burlington Beer Works beers will be crafted locally, brewed on site, and only available at our restaurant.
As a restaurant, we believe that sustainable, local, and responsibly sourced food should be available to everyone at a reasonable price. Our menu will fluctuate with the ebb and flow of the seasons. Our members are also our test-kitchen. From them we will draw the inspiration for our ever-evolving menu.
Timeline and When We Plan to Open
This entire project revolves around our owners. We need your support to make this happen.
We hope to open in Fall of 2017, with a goal of having 2000 owners and $400,000 of community investment by the end of 2016 to make that timeline.
This timeline requires your support and participation.
We want to thank the Company Shops Market in downtown Burlington for their support. We encourage you to consider becoming an owner of their co-op as well.
