Burr Grinder 'Beer Coffee' Ale Release Event @ Victory 44

Join us at Victory 44 Tuesday, March 5th for our latest release event, Burr Grinder Coffee Ale.

This collaboration has been 'brewing' for quite some time. Indeed Brewing Company partnered with their neighbors at Dogwood Coffee to create Burr Grinder “Beer Coffee”. After searching for the perfect coffee, 90-pounds of Guatemalan Finca Rosma was steeped in the brew kettle before we topped-off the finished beer with 54-gallons of cold press. Delivering an intense coffee punch while preserving the delicate aromas of the complex beans, Burr Grinder will have you wondering whether you’re a beer geek or a coffee geek. (5.1% ABV, 13 IBU)

WHAT: Burr Grinder Coffee Ale Release
WHEN: Tuesday, March 5th at 5:00 p.m.
WHERE: Victory 44, 2203 N 44th Ave Minneapolis, MN 55412
WHY: Try the beer, and witness the spectacle as beer geeks and coffee nerds unite

Indeed Brewing Company to Double Beer Production Capacity in Early 2013

Indeed Brewing Company announces plans to double its production capacity in response to the overwhelming demand for its locally crafted beer. The expansion, a $250,000 investment, includes additional cellar tanks, production equipment, and the hiring of additional employees at its existing 13,000 square-foot facility in NE Minneapolis.

Indeed Brewing will increase its annual production capacity from 3,200 BBL’s to 6,400 BBL’s only six months after opening the doors of its highly acclaimed taproom, and beginning distribution of its beer to local bars, restaurants, and liquor stores. The largest startup craft brewery in the history of the state, Indeed Brewing has created nearly one dozen jobs, attracted more than 10,000 visitors to its taproom, and produced a lineup of beers that have been positively reviewed by consumers.

“By adding tanks on an aggressive schedule we hope to stay slightly ahead of demand which should help ensure the high quality and consistency of our beers while giving us some room to experiment with interesting ingredients and styles of beer,” said Tom Whisenand, Co-Founder.

“This is really a dream come true for all of us, it seems like just yesterday we were sitting around the kitchen table discussing our business plan and now we are doubling capacity... hopefully sleep will come after that,” said Whisenand.

Indeed beer is available on draft in its taproom, and approximately 100 bars/restaurants. Its two flagship beers Day Tripper Pale Ale and Midnight Ryder American Black Ale are available in 12-oz. can six-packs in approximately 70 retail stores found throughout the Minneapolis and St. Paul area. And with the return of it summer seasonal, Shenanigans Summer Ale, we will introduce this beer to our can line-up in 12-oz. six and twelve-packs.

“Our growth and distribution strategy has been and will continue to be one that is strong near the brewery’s vicinity, and simultaneously creating awareness to new consumers throughout the entire Twin Cities metro,” said Nathan Berndt, Co-Founder.

“This expansion will allow us to put cans of beer in more hands just in time for summer activities, which Minnesotans really take pride on a lake, backyard BBQs, or after nice hike or bike ride,” said Berndt.


Indeed Brewing Company Brewing was founded in 2011 by friends Rachel Anderson, Nathan Berndt and Thomas Whisenand, is located in Northeast Minneapolis. Their aim is to bring more quality craft beer to Minnesota and have fun while doing it. It is this passion for beer and adventure that inspires Indeed Brewing Company to create their one-of-a-kind handcrafted brews.

As an invested member of the community, Indeed donates at least one percent of its annual sales to local and national non-profit organizations as part of One Percent for the Planet, an organization and movement that encourages corporate philanthropy for the preservation and restoration of the natural environment.

New Beers, New Relationships

Variety is the spice of life, right? Well that’s our attitude, and we don’t plan on letting up as we have a number of exciting beers on the horizon as we enter the second half of our first 12 months in business of our brewery

It’s been almost six months since we opened our brewery and taproom, and since then we’ve released eight beers. The first two were our flagship beers: Day Tripper Pale Ale and Midnight Ryder American Black Ale. We have two seasonal beers: Shenanigans Summer Ale and Stir Crazy Winter Ale. And four specialty beers: Fresh Hop, Sweet Yamma Jamma, Haywire, and Old Friend. We are now preparing to release our ninth beer: Hot Box, an Imperial Smoked Pepper Porter brewed as a collaboration with Northbound Smokehouse Brewpub in South Minneapolis. This beer will be released on Feb. 11 at Northbound and then on Feb. 14 in our taproom (yes, there will be limited 750 mL bottles, limit two),

Not long after we turned on the power in our building for construction, the crew from Dogwood Coffee stopped-by to investigate their new neighbors in Northeast Minneapolis. With mutual love for coffee and beer, an alliance was born and talks of collaboration soon followed. The result is Burr Grinder, a beer that is not so much a coffee beer, but a coffee nerd beer for beer nerds. This beer will be released in early March.

I-P-What?! You didn’t hear it from us but, but yes, we will be brewing a seasonal IPA that will be released in late March. More details about this unique beer to follow in time.

Beyond these beers we are working on brewing our first barrel-aged beer for release at our second annual Hullabaloo in October. There will be a super, funky specialty beer for release around Art-A-Whirl, and we are preparing for a big summer filled with canning—when we debut our third canned beer with return of Shenanigans Summer Ale, our honey wheat ale brewed with Sorachi Ace hops and Glacier County (MT) honey. This beer will be available in 12-packs so you can be the hit of any get-together carrying a bounty of cans!
