Indeed Brewing Opens Tap Room in Minneapolis This Friday


Published:

Adding to the growing list of Twin Cities’ taprooms, Indeed Brewing Company will open their taproom located in the Solar Arts Building in NE Minneapolis this Friday, August 10, 2012.

In 2011, Indeed Brewing Company Brewing was founded by friends and college roommates Tom Whisenand, Nathan Berndt, and Rachel Anderson. Not only did the team decide early on to make handcrafted beer in Minneapolis, but they also agreed to be a member of 1% for the Planet, a global alliance of businesses that donate 1% of gross revenues to organizations that help preserve and restore the natural environment. 

I've had a chance to take a few preliminary tours during the build-out, and the once empty warehouse space has developed into a 12,000-square-foot brewery with a 3,800 BBL brewing capacity. The taproom combines a warehouse aesthetic (complete with exposed brick and exposed ceilings) with the old world charm of glowing hardwood—complete with a 36-foot, hand-milled bar made with real Wisconsin oak. Other seating options include booths, six recycled tabletops imprinted with signatures from Miller Publishing, and a patio. To check out the build-out of the taproom, check out Indeed’s instagram feed.

“We want our taproom to be a hub for all things Indeed, like a living room for our brewery,” co-owner Tom Whisenand said in a recent press release, “so we can invite people in to get to know us and our beer.”

But a taproom would only be a room if it weren’t for beer, and rest assured Indeed Brewing Company has beer. Their head brewer, Josh Bischoff, has been brewing beer for more than a decade, and won a silver medal at the 2011 Great American Beer Festival. I’ve sampled two of their hop-forward beers made with regional grown pale malt and domestic hops such as Willamettes, Cascades, CTZ, and Summits. The citrusy Day Tripper Pale Ale is brighter than the sweeter (and slightly chocolatey) Midnight Ryder American Black Ale. Indeed plans to expand their line to offer seasonal, year-round, and limited edition brews, which you’ll be able to find in their taproom, in six packs at stores, and/or on tap at bars and restaurants.

The Indeed Brewing Company tap room will be open Thursday through Friday from 3 to 10 p.m., and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
