MNthusiast Membership Program Ending

The MNthusiast membership program was started at the Guild in 2019 as a way for craft beer enthusiasts to get more involved in the industry through Guild events, information, and advocacy. Over the past four years, MNthusiasts have volunteered with our committees and events, helped send tens of thousands of advocacy emails to legislators, and sampled the first beers at each of our festivals. We are extremely grateful for your support of our nonprofit and our brewery and brewpub members throughout Minnesota.

However, after careful consideration, we have decided that it is time to end the program. There are countless ways that MN craft beer fans engage with, support, advocate for, and volunteer with Minnesota craft breweries and brewpubs, and we want to make our information and opportunities available to as many of those fans as possible going forward.

2023 was the last year of membership benefits. See below for details on how to stay involved in the future. If you have any questions, please contact us. Whether you’ve been a MNthusiast member for years or joined recently, thank you again for being a part of our Guild and supporting our nonprofit mission to promote, protect, and grow a robust Minnesota craft brewing industry!

When Does My Membership End / Will I Be Billed Again?

All memberships end at the end of 2023. You do not need to take any action to cancel your membership or your dues.

All auto-renewing dues subscriptions were canceled in spring/summer of 2023. You will not receive any future charges from the Guild for the MNthusiast program. If you do see a charge from us, please alert us immediately so we can correct this error.
