Building Indeed Brewing Company in NE Minneapolis

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 early 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.
