About Fair State Brewing Cooperative

Fair State is one of the first cooperatively-owned breweries in the US. Fair State Co-op’s consumer members elect its Board of Directors and select nonprofit partners to support through Fair State Cooperates, our community giving program. The Co-op’s professional brewing team focuses on traditional lager beer, sour beer (ranging from kettle sours to 100% barrel-fermented mixed culture beers), and hoppy beers. We operate a taproom and our original brewery in the vibrant Northeast neighborhood of Minneapolis, Minnesota and operate a larger packaging brewery in the Midway neighborhood of Saint Paul, Minnesota. Our beers are available through distribution in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, New York City, Massachusetts, Philadelphia, San Diego, and Los Angeles. Fair State Co-op creates community by hosting events like Mixed Culture, our brewer-led beer festival; Camp Fair State, a Northwoods craft beer retreat; and Co-optoberfest, our annual Oktoberfest-themed birthday party.

Our taproom looks a little different during this pandemic, but our team is still working hard to keep you connected and keep your fridges fully stocked. In the interest of public health we’ve converted to contactless payment. So crowlers, bottles, and merch are currently sold only through our online shop. We’re offering curbside pick-up and delivery to keep our guests and staff safe.

Thank you for your continued support. It means so much to us always, but especially now.
