Introducing Indeed Brewing Company

Approximately 14 months ago  Rachel Anderson, Thomas Whisenand, Josh Bischoff and Nathan Berndt (and Nancy Lien Berndt), began researching and planning a new craft beer brewery for the Twin Cities. 

Months of planning, strategizing, structuring, fundraising, and searching eventually lead us to an early 20th century industrial building in the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District. First a tire company, then a Sears Roebuck distribution center, this building most recently housed an electrical transformer company before sitting vacant for nearly a year.

By summer of 2012 this sleepy dead-end adjacent to the Northstar Commuter Rail tracks will be a bustling intersection of art, craft beer, solar power, and urban revitalization, a place Indeed Brewing Company will be proud to call its home. In the mean time, you can stay up to date on our progress by following us on our blog: "It is ... Indeed," become a fan Facebook, follow us on Twitter (@indeedbrewing and @indeedbrewer), and on Google+.

Watch for an official press release to follow in the coming days.
