We have shot a few episode of Locapour at Black Star. If you would like to see what it is like to get your beer on there you can check out http://locapour.tv/austin/blackstarcoopvulcan or http://locapour.tv/austin/blackstarcoopelba

Black Star Co-op is a leader in the Austin craft beer scene. The cooperative ownership means that the members and patrons really care a lot about the quality of the beer brewed at "their pub."

I love the fact that the people who work at Black Star are so passionate about the beer and being a part of something special to the Austin beer community. It really comes across in their service.

Workers are paid well and there is NO TIPPING so reviewers should consider that when evaluating the price/value score.

Pro Tip:

There's no table service, you order at the counter. When you get there it might be best to order a pitcher or two beers to make sure you minimize time spent standing in line.

Came with the wife a couple weeks ago, and we had a great time here. The house beers were better than expected, and I enjoyed every one of them that I had on the sampler. Everything was clean, fresh and very drinkable and they have a very nice list of guest beers on tap as well.
My wife ordered the grilled cheese sandwich made with fresh baked bread from Easy Tiger bakery in town and served with homemade fries which were awesome! Overall, a cool and inviting environment with a smallish menu with well prepared food and great beers. Definitely worth a visit!

I like the vibe of Black Star. I used to ride the commuter rail and would pop in for a pint between trains.

The beer is great. I love Vulcan IPA and several others. Growler fills are available too.

The atmosphere is Austin-industrial. The staff and vibe remind me of a communist commune a little; the staff doesn't accept tips and the place is closed on May 1, International Labor Day. The food is decent, but the last time I had a burger it was really overcooked and dry. The service is a bit slow, but what do you expect from employees who don't care about tips.
