on October 31, 2014 - 9:39am

LABC News:

Los Alamos will soon be among only a handful of cities in the country to open the first cooperative craft brewery, and is brewing up several rich and tasty incentives to attract 300 new member/owners and investors to make that happen.

Without more capital, the brewery will have to delay opening.

The Los Alamos Beer Co-op (LABC) estimates that the future brewery will open its new location early in 2015. With 300 more memberships in the next few months, the Co-op hopes to hire a professional brewer and eventually produce four varieties of beer, along with root beer and cider.
