Here at Indeed Brewing Company, we've partnered with Johnson Brothers to expand our distribution territory to North Dakota statewide!
We kicked off this latest expansion at the Fargo Beer Fest on September 26nd, and begin selling beer on October 1st. Beginning November 2nd, Indeed will also begin distributing to Western Minnesota, including Detroit Lakes, Moorhead, and Alexandria. This new territory will be handled by the Artisan Beer Company, a Minnesota craft beer distributor owned by Johnson Brothers.
"We are thrilled to be representing Indeed Brewing," says Todd Johnson, COO of Johnson Brothers. "We've been admirers of these outstanding beers for a long time, and this is exciting news for beer lovers in North Dakota and Western Minnesota."
Indeed’s move to North Dakota feels like coming home for a few key players at the brewery. “Having grown up in Grand Forks, I can’t wait to belly up to the bar and order a pint of Indeed beer in my home state of North Dakota,” says Indeed Brewing Co-founder and President Nathan Berndt. “North Dakota is a state where we want to sell beer, not where we have to sell beer. I can’t wait to help Johnson Brothers bring Indeed beer to all four corners!”
Co-founder Tom Whisenand also has deep roots in North Dakota, where his grandfather owned and operated the Park Package liquor store in Williston for thirty years. “We were all surprised to learn that Bob Nelson at Johnson Brothers used to call on my grandfather at Park Package,” says Whisenand. “It turns out that we go way back with Johnson Brothers, and now we’re looking to the future with them, too.”
Indeed Brewing and Johnson Brothers look forward to bringing Indeed’s full lineup of quality craft beer to Western Minnesota and North Dakota, including seasonal offerings like the newly released Let it Roll IPA and Yamma Jamma Harvest Ale, specialty releases such as barrel-aged Rum King Imperial Stout, and three year-round beers: Dandy Lager Pale Lager, Midnight Ryder Black IPA, and Day Tripper Pale Ale.
