Why a CSA?
CSA stands for ‘Community Supported Agriculture’ and has been a highly successful model of selling fresh produce for many smaller farms all around the country for quite a long time. It is a way for producers (farmers, brewers, artists…) to have the capital they need to start making their product and the security of knowing that their product already has an outlet.
For Stoneman Brewery the CSA model has been essential not only to its financial survival but has also created an incredibly strong community around Stoneman. Having folks pay up front for a share of the beer Justin is going to produce does a few really amazing things: it gives him the money he needs for the ingredients to brew that beer, it also means that Justin knows where that beer is headed once it’s made. Not only that but he now has a personal connection with where that beer is headed and who is drinking it. It means the customer has a personal connection with the brewer and the story of the beer they’re drinking. And since Stoneman’s beer is made with nearly 100% locally sourced ingredients there is further connection to the farmers and maltsters in our community.
