About the Tub:
Bathtub Row Brewing Co-op at 163 Central Park Square began with a simple idea: create a brewery and taproom in Los Alamos as a place for the community to gather and enjoy great, locally brewed beer. Founders wanted to create a place for the members of the Los Alamos community to gather, relax in a comfortable atmosphere, read, talk, be alone or in a small group — and enjoy a beer. The vision evokes a small, neighborhood pub in England, where fresh beer is brewed on premises and is as much a vital part of the community’s spirit as is the togetherness of the gathering.
So the founding members of Bathtub Row (initially incorporated as the Los Alamos Beer Co-op) started meeting on a weekly basis in a small room in the Los Alamos County Library to discuss how this idea could become reality. They chose the cooperative business model because they felt its seven principles aligned perfectly with their mission and values. As a democratically run, member-owned and operated cooperative, Bathtub Row Brewing Co-op seeks to:
- serve as a gathering place for the local community;
- run our business in an environmentally and economically sustainable manner;
- support and promote the local craft beer industry; and,
- educate the community about the art and science of brewing.
Thanks to three years of hard work and the investment of its membership, Bathtub Row Brewing Co-op is up and running as Los Alamos’ first craft brewery and the fourth cooperatively run brewery in the United States. It is focused on producing the highest quality, fresh, delicious craft beer, and serving it in the taproom and at local events.
Members also believe that businesses should be measured not only by their financial success but also by the benefit they confer to their community. As a cooperative, their business practices reflect the values and needs of its member-owners and emphasize building its community and promoting its social and economic well-being. That’s why, in every decision they make, they weigh not only how it will affect the business, but also how it can better the community that they live in.
