Indeed is a growing brewery, and things are getting a little tight round these parts, especially in the taproom area. As Co-founder and Director of Operations Tom Whisenand told reporter Clare Kennedy at the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal, "The demand for taprooms has grown like crazy and ours has only gotten busier. Our biggest complaint now is that people can't get in." Now, we're not whining! This is a great problem to have. But we thought, why not work to make a little more room for everyone to enjoy if we can?
Enter our as-yet-unnamed second taproom! It's a work in progress, but we've got big plans for the space, housed on the first floor of the Solar Arts Building down the hall from our current taproom. Not only will we pour and serve beer at our newly installed 17-foot bar and accommodate overflow from the busy taproom, but we'll also have a gift shop for guests to peruse our latest selection of Indeed merch, and an increased capacity for private events, currently only held on Mondays and Tuesdays when our main taproom is closed.
The crew has been chipping away at this major project behind the scenes; construction, wiring, plumbing, and all the technical details of the space are well underway. If everything goes swimmingly, we expect to open the new space to the public by July. Stay tuned for developments along the way! We can't wait to throw the door up and welcome you in.
