Community Impact

In 2016, we launched our community engagement arm, Fair State Cooperates. Through this program, we partner with different nonprofit organizations, selected by our member-owners, whose work focused within the impact areas of democracy, justice, community outreach, and community health. Through these partnerships, we raise funds through beer sales, awareness through social media, and involvement through volunteerism.

Every time you purchase a crowler or glassware in the taproom or online, 10% is donated to our nonprofit partners.

2023 Cooperates Partners

As a cooperative brewery, the direction of our charitable giving is determined by our member-owners through our Cooperates partnerships. Fair State donates a limited amount of goods to organizations outside of this program.

In order to maximize the impact of our charitable giving outside of Cooperates, Fair State prioritizes donations to registered 501c3 nonprofit organizations whose work is in the areas of democracy, justice, community health, and combating climate change.

The organization must provide a liquor license (and proper permitting where applicable) in order to receive any beer donation.

Donation pickup times are during regular taproom hours. Beer donation pickups must be scheduled at least one week in advance.
