Minnesota’s First Co-op Brewery and their Nicely Branded Website


By rizeabove / / Fair State Brewing Cooperative is Minnesota’s first cooperative brewery and they just recently launched with a nicely done brand and website by Little. As a co-op, they focus as much on producing perfectly crafted beer as they do on the community of members who enjoy theirbrews. What is the benefit of this new member-based model? Everything from getting discounted beer to first dibs on new brews to giving input on experimental recipes to getting paid out annual refunds based on profits generated for the year. On top of that, Fair State beers are notable for their balance, bold flavors, and sessionability. True to their community-driven model, they believe in brewing beers that unite hardcore beer geeks and casual beer drinkers. Beer of the people, for the people. “At Fair State, we stand behind our craftsmanship, and we stand with our community.” Fair State Brewery Co-op Website

    I was very excited about this. I immediately visited the website to buy a membership. I cannot. I am a Wisconsinite. The website says you need to be a Minnesotan to be a member. I wonder why that is.
