Sip ‘n’ ‘Search: Official Research Pairing Guide

Sip ‘n’ ‘Search: Official Research Pairing Guide

Like craft beers and rescue pets, Filene's research reports come with many rich flavors and complex personalities to provide you with one-of-a-kind experiences. We realize you have a lot of choices for how to spend your free time on weekends, but we know many of you enjoy digging deep into Filene's research library. We want to make your leisure reading this Sunday even more enjoyable, so Filene has created an official pairing guide for you. 

Crack open a beer, curl up next to your furry friend and enjoy the latest research findings from Filene Research Institute:

OFFICIAL PAIRING GUIDE:

Generational Money Chatter

If you enjoy uncovering consumer preferences, trends, and behaviors in money management, our GENERATIONAL MONEY CHATTER report is for you!

Pair it with: 

A small dog with its own unique attitude. Baxter is our pick for reading this report with you. He's got his own opinions about money and he's not afraid to share them!

Enjoy with:

A British Bitter with low gravity, low alcohol levels, and low carbonation make this an easy-drinking session beer. The malt profile can vary in flavor and intensity, but should never bark louder than it bites. Drinkability, like report readability, is a critical component of the style.

 

 

Knowledge Sharing

If you aim to explore and excel in progressive management practices and operational behavior, the KNOWLEDGE SHARING report is for you!

Pair it with: 

A dog that is well balanced in playfulness and spice. Aster is a super model of dog perfection and will be the perfect companion to this report exploring role model cases of credit union communication and sharing successes.

Enjoy with: 

A Belgian Dark Strong Ale to bring this report's complex and rich tones to the forefront. This very strong Belgian ale has an adorable blend of malt richness, dark fruit flavors, and spicy elements. Complex, rich, smooth and (sometimes) dangerous.

 

 

Weighing the Risks of a Fintech Partnership

If you care about connecting credit unions with the most impactful technology and consumer trends, then WEIGHING THE RISKS is the report for you.

Pair it with:

A thoughtful dog that offers support and security. Bremi is our top choice for this important reading. Much like how this report provides a roadmap to avoiding potential pitfalls, Bremi will hound out dangers and keep you safe.

Enjoy with:

The intense flavors of an Imperial Stout will keep you alert while the rich complexity of this beer awakens your curiosity and inspires thoroughness. Despite the intense flavors, the components need to meld together to create a complex, harmonious beer, not a hot mess.

 

 

The Laws of Attraction

If attracting, developing, and promoting top performers, from the front line to the board table is on your to-do list, LAWS OF ATTRACTION is the report you need.

Pair it with:

A sly but loyal cat who'll stick by your side through the years. We realize a cat is an odd choice for dog breed, but Taz transends species boundaries when it comes to companionship.

Enjoy with:

Sipping on a complex Fruit Lambic while reading this report will make you appreciate the contributions of both the fruit in your beer and your team at the credit union. Complex, pleasantly sour, this wild wheat ale is fermented by a variety of Belgian microbiota, and showcases the fruit contributions blended with wild character!

 

 

Open Book Management

If you appreciate cooperative strategies for sustained competitive advantage and business model innovation, you're going to want to read OPEN BOOK MANAGEMENT as soon as you can.

Pair it with:

A white fluffy dog that is open to trying new bones and isn't afraid to share them with the pack. Skyd has his own Instagram following but it doesn't mean he won't take a moment from his busy day to help Taz learn to use the computer.

Enjoy with:

Crack open a Kölsch to bring out the fresh, crisp transparency this report offers. Subdued maltiness throughout leads into a pleasantly well-attenuated and refreshing finish. Freshness makes a huge difference with this beer, as the delicate character can fade quickly with age. Brilliant clarity is characteristic.

 

Happy April Fool's Day!

Love, Filene
