TWB Co-Operative Brewing – Together We’re Bitter

Our story begins with a vision: to create a business rooted firmly in our local community. And what better way to create community than with craft beer! 

We envisioned making the craft beer scene more approachable and accessible for everyone to enjoy. That also extends to our business model: as a worker-owned co-operative, business ownership becomes more accessible as well. 

From academics to welders, community advocates to graphic designers, our six founding members came together over this vision. They spent every ounce of their spare time building our scrappy little
brewery from scratch: from developing the business plan, to learning how to brew on the German-made all-in-one brewhouse rescued from a storage locker, to building our bar top out of an old bowling alley – everything was DIY.
Opened in 2016, TWB focuses on maintaining a well-rounded lineup of high quality, approachable beers in order to invite more people to share in what we love. 

True to our original vision, we continue to focus on building strong relationships with community partners, using our resources and platforms to make our community a better place. 

Today, we continue to grow to include new worker-owners who each add their own unique skills and passions to the mix. 

TWB is a living, growing, and changing embodiment of how craft beer and community can support each other.
