Brewery Credit Union is offering a special 4.50% APY 5-month CD. Minimum deposit is $1,000. Offer is valid only to new credit union members or current members with direct deposit. This special is listed on the credit union's front page as of 1/13/09. The small print states that the rate is effective through February 28, 2009 and is subject to change without notice. With this high rate I wouldn't count on this lasting through February.
Membership is open to those who live or work in Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee or Washington counties of Wisconsin. The credit union provides an online application for membership. The first page of this application details the eligibility requirements.
Branches are located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The credit union has some decent ratings for soundness: 3 stars (adequate) at BauerFinancial and 4 stars (sound) at Bankrate. Both ratings are based on 9/30/08 financial data. The credit union is federally insured by the NCUA (Charter # 66637).
