On this episode of the Beer Edge podcast, Andy Crouch speaks with Evan Sallee, the co-founder and CEO of Fair State Brewing Cooperative in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Evan has seen first hand the after effects of the killing of George Floyd on the city. It has also caused him to further explore his company’s own lack of diversity as you will hear. It was an engaging and thoughtful conversation and Evan is honest in admitting the areas that need improving. He discusses what Fair State is doing to engage the community through its outreach efforts, As the current president of the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild, he also talks with us about the impacts of COVID 19 on the state and what the future of beer in Minnesota looks like.
