Hopsters Taproom NOW OPEN!

You read that right! Hopsters Taproom, at 198 Enmore Rd, Enmore, is NOW OPEN!

We might have been a little quiet on the updates recently, but not for lack of things going on. In fact, quite the opposite as we’ve been just so busy over the past few months with getting the taproom fitted out, working bees, brewing batches, and getting all the regulatory approval required to finally get those doors open.

We are opening with a series of ‘soft launches’ while we continue to make some adjustments and smooth out the experience, and we encourage you to come along and taste YOUR BEER from YOUR BREWERY. It’s been an incredibly hard-fought journey for our 600+ members, and now you can finally indulge in the fruits of that effort.

We look forward to sharing the success with each and every one of you!

Hopsters Taproom Progress

Progress is coming along nicely on the Hopsters Co-operative Brewery taproom at 198 Enmore Rd, with construction well underway and an amazing custom mural by Hopsters members Erin S. and Carmel M.

We are at a crucial phase where we need to continue growing our membership and raising funds through initiatives like our Founders Range Pale Ale pre-sale campaign, crowdfunding initiatives, picking up some sweet Hopsters merchandise, and purchasing extra shares.

Check out our short video below to see how the taproom is shaping up:
