The Great Minnesota Handshake – a collaborative beer presented by Minnesota Credit Unions at the State Fair – was a huge hit. The first “beer with a cause” at the Fair - $1 per cup sold will fund financial literacy initiatives through the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation. The beer was so popular that it had to be rationed the last few days of the Fair and was eventually sold out. Thank you to everyone who supported the initiative, either by sharing the stories on social media or purchasing a beer at the Fair. If you missed it – here are links to some of the earned media mentions that resulted from the partnership:


MnCUN is currently gathering data on the initiative’s impact, and will provide a full Fair update in the coming weeks.
