Democracy Brewing Party

May 9, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Create a Worker-Owned Brew Pub in Boston

DEMOCRACY BREWING is hosting a private tasting and presentation at the Old Oak Dojo in Jamaica Plain. This gathering will be a party and informational event for potential investors.

Our mission is to re-create the traditional public house, brew the best beer in Boston, and serve it to you paired with two great American ideals: democracy, and owning your own business.

Democracy Brewing will be a progressive meeting place with the atmosphere and camaraderie of your local neighborhood bar, infused with the democratic spirit of a vibrant community center. We believe the dream of owning your own business shouldn’t be attainable to only a few, and the majority of folks who work should be able to enjoy the profit and pride that comes with ownership.

We are opening doors in downtown Boston this November!

Democracy Brewing is already financed through business loans, but community participation will fund many of the soft costs associated with our launch. In exchange for support, we are offering equity to Massachusetts residents through our Direct Public Offering (DPO) and fun investor perks.  Democracy Brewing is offering an annual return (dividend) on investments, with the opportunity to have the principal returned in 5 years.

With your support, we are only eight months away from creating living-wage jobs for 24 worker-owners in an industry famous for poverty and wage theft – while building a shining beacon to economic democracy in New England’s de facto capital city. And most importantly of all, we’ll be serving the best beer in Boston. We can’t wait to serve you a pint!
