Fair State Brewing and FMR cooperate through all of June

Fair State Brewing Cooperative's member-owners have once again selected FMR as their June nonprofit partner in recognition of our work combating climate change. All month long, every time you purchase a crowler in the taproom or online, 10% is donated to FMR.

Fair State is also hosting a draft night on June 8 from 4-11 p.m., where they'll donate $1 from every draft pour of their top brands to FMR. Come by and chat with FMR staff about our land restoration work.
