Fair State Cooperates
In 2016, we launched our community engagement arm, Fair State Cooperates. Each month we partner with a different nonprofit organization, as selected by our Member-Owners. In our partnerships, we raise funds through beer sales, awareness through social media, and involvement through volunteerism. Every time you purchase a CROWLER in the taproom, 10% is donated to the month’s nonprofit partner. When the opportunity exists, a group of Fair State members and patrons gather to volunteer in a way that meets the specific needs of the partner organization.

Members have asked how they can donate more to our Cooperates partners. Now, anytime you receive a discount, be it Member happy hour or a price break on a CROWLER 3-pack, you can elect to pay full price and donate your discount to the month’s featured nonprofit. Just say “I’d like to donate my discount!


Every year Animal Humane Society cares for more than 23,000 animals in need and helps thousands more through programs for people and pets.

As the leading animal welfare organization in the Upper Midwest, AHS is transforming the way shelters care for animals and engage their communities. From innovative medical and behavior programs to investments in outreach and advocacy, they are advancing animal welfare and creating a more humane world for animals everywhere.

The four Twin Cities adoption centers are more than just a great place to find and adopt the perfect pet. Friendly animal experts at each location offer services and support for every stage of an animal’s life. Plus, AHS works with individuals and organizations across Minnesota and beyond, advocating for the health and safety of animals, no matter where they are.

On Tuesday, December 12th, we will be crafting heating pads for AHS to use with animals coming out of surgery.
