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.
