Keep Up To Speed
New beer releases feature QR codes on the label that go to supporting local communities.
On Monday, March 16, Indeed Brewing Company voluntarily closed its Minneapolis taproom before bars and restaurants were ordered to temporarily close across Minnesota. Since then, we've adapted to the changing landscape caused by the novel coronavirus outbreak to not only serve beer safely, but also provide consumers with new brands.
Instead of scrapping plans for upcoming draft-only beers on the 2020 brand calendar, our marketing, production, and packaging teams switched gears to release these beers in labeled cans and on schedule, with an added effort to support local communities.
Crowlers and growlers are available to-go in Milwaukee and Minneapolis.
These are strange and unprecedented times, indeed.
We announced on Monday, March 16 that we would be closing our Milwaukee and Minneapolis taprooms in response to the spread of COVID-19 in the U.S. While we can’t provide a space for you to gather, we can supply you with beer once again, which we hope brings you some comfort.
Crowlers and growlers are now available to-go at both taproom locations. Pick up through The Ox window in Minneapolis or on Quincy Corner where you can snag some tacos from Centro, too. In Milwaukee, pick-up is available at the taproom. Growlers are available, however we won't be doing refills at this time or accepting empties. Customers who order from Centro across the street will receive $5 off any growler purchase as part of our Quincy Corner package.

Catching up with owner Tom Whisenand.
Indeed Brewing Company’s pilot brewery and taproom opened in Milwaukee in September 2019. Owner Tom Whisenand reflects on the the last six months in Milwaukee, why Wisconsin is a great state for beer, and what’s in store for beer drinkers in both states.
Our three-day music fest returns May 15, 16 & 17.
Good vibes, food and beer galore, and killer music: It’s time for Whirlygig 2020.
We’re getting weird on Saturday of the three-day fest. TOBACCO will be here and ready to take us on a trip. Yes, that TOBACCO. That hasn’t played in Minneapolis in what feels like forever. That either redefines psychedelic music or smashes it to pieces so it can’t be defined. That manufactures analogue music into a digital world and fuses limitless genres into simple, badass, head-bobbing rock and roll. And if that’s not weird enough, we also have Marijuana Deathsquads, Daughters of the Sun, and The Lioness with DJ Keezy.
To kick off the weekend right, we’re bringing Nur-D back to the stage on Friday night, with The Bad Man, official beer-drinking rockstars of Northeast Minneapolis, and Purple Funk Metropolis on deck to get the stage hot and heavy. After blowing our minds at Hullabaloo 2019 and watching his meteoric rise, we’re beyond pumped to have Nur-D back, this time with a full band on a bigger stage. If you’re still standing on Sunday, Portal iii—a new project from bass goddess Liz Draper, guitarist and inspiration Charlie Parr, and local drummer/percussion soundmaker Chris Gray—and Pert Near Sandstone will bring the weekend to a close in full party mode.
Can you tell we’re excited? Can you tell you should be too? Join us in keeping Art-a-Whirl weird.
Bring your old PakTech can holders to Indeed and get $2 off any beer, any time.
Back in August 2019, we found out that PakTech—those bright orange toppers that hold our six- and four-packs together—was not compatible with residential recycling centers and programs across Minnesota.
We decided that we wanted to not only find a way to recycle them responsibly, but also educate craft beer drinkers, so we offered you discounts and free beers in exchange for your discarded PakTech. We partnered with a facility that would properly recycle PakTech and other craft breweries followed suit in the mission to keep the packaging truly sustainable.
We have collected more than 1,300 PakTech holders and in return given away more than 850 free beers since then.
You showed us that you care about sustainability (and free beer), making this program wildly successful. So successful, in fact, that it’s time to scale it back a bit. We will still be offering $2 off all beers (even during Happy Hour) when you bring in three or more PakTech holders (from both Indeed and non-Indeed packs).
The Milwaukee taproom will still be offering one free pint (excluding specialty pours) for 4 or more PakTechs, or $2 off any beer with 1-3 PakTechs.
