Drink Like You Own The Place

We are proud of our beer and the people that make it possible. Fair State Co-op is made up of Member-Owners, two words that mean a whole lot to us. As a Member, you belong to a vibrant group of people that share your enthusiasm for beer and recognize it as a catalyst for building community. As an Owner, you know that when you grab a pint or a four-pack, you’re investing in your own business – one in which you have a meaningful stake and in whose future you play an important role.

Being an Owner

We started a brewery because we love great beer. We made it a cooperative because we believe that when people come together, amazing things can happen. We share stories, come up with new ideas, and start to see the world a little differently.
