Brlog _ A cooperative brewery as a social entrepreneurship

​Ana and Maja are two girls whose great passion is manufacturing quality beer. Up to March 2016, their passion was just a hobby, but then they came to an idea of founding the first women-run cooperative craft brewery in Croatia - Brlog. Craft beer is a preservative free, unfiltered and unpasteurized beer. Such a beer has higher nutritional and, most people believe, culinary value. Through the crowdfunding campaign, they have collected funds to finance fermenters, bottles, labels and cases. The initial goal was to raise $ 8,000, but with the support of more than 300 backers, they raised more than $ 11,000!Brlog has thus become an operative brewery, which works on the principles of good economics. This means that profit is not the supreme goal to be achieved at any cost, but the business is in the service of the welfare union members and the quality of the beer. This is a great example of an autonomous, sustainable and responsible business that achieves a positive effect on the local community. In addition to the people at the local and wider area, Brlog indirectly cooperates with animals for which boiled malt is a part of the menu.
