Beer co-op gets its license

Business > Group will become just 4th cooperative brewery in U.S.

After a six-month process, the Los Alamos Beer Coop (LABC) announced Tuesday that it has received its brewer’s license from the New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department, officially making Los Alamos’ first and only brewery and just the fourth cooperative-owned brewery in the United States.

The LABC’s brewery will be called “Bathtub Row Brewing” — a reference to the city’s historic Bathtub Row, named during the Manhattan Project era since the buildings on that street were the only ones that contained bathtubs.

“The state licensing employees were incredibly helpful with guidance and advice for streamlining the process, so we are very grateful for their assistance in helping us navigate everything,” said LABC board member Amy Engle. “People are beginning to understand the benefits of the cooperative model, and that is very exciting. We are also the first brewery in Los Alamos and the first co-op brewery in New Mexico, so we are very excited about finally putting our small town on the craft beer map.”

In the past few years, LABC aggressively recruited individual investors to help fund the venture, which now has 420 members. The LABC hopes to gain another 80 members by its opening, which the group anticipates will be sometime this spring.
