We release our 2014 specialty ale Burr Grinder at Bryant Lake Bowl on Saturday, February 15 when doors open at 8 am. "We wanted to do something a little different for the release of this beer," said Indeed Brewing co-founder Rachel Anderson. "Burr Grinder delivers an intense coffee punch, so we thought a breakfast release was the perfect introduction."
Burr Grinder is a collaborative beer created by Indeed Brewing Head Brewer Josh Bischoff and Dogwood Coffee. It is a unique take on a coffee ale, using ground coffee in the brew kettle, in addition to being topped with concentrated cold-press at the end of the brewing process.
Following the release event at Bryant Lake Bowl, Burr Grinder will be available on draft and in 750 ML bottles the week of February 17. Burr Grinder will make its debut at the Indeed Brewing Company taproom on Thursday, February 20.
“We are very happy to be working with our Northeast neighbors at Dogwood Coffee on Burr Grinder for the second year,” said Indeed Brewing co-founder Nathan Berndt. “There are a lot of early mornings in brewing, so coffee is a big part of our lives. Dogwood brews some of the best coffee around, and we pride ourselves in using the best possible ingredients in our beer.”
"It was great working with Indeed Brewing on Burr Grinder again," said Stephanie Ratanas, Coffee Buyer for Dogwood Coffee. "We chose coffees that we thought would work well for the brewing process as well as the cold brew element that gets added at the end, then we let Indeed do their thing. I’m looking forward to tasting the results from this year."
Beer geek. Coffee nerd. Whatever name you prefer, this beer has you covered. We teamed up with our Northeast Minneapolis neighbors at Dogwood Coffee to brew this one of a kind “coffee beer.” BURR GRINDER is infused with freshly ground Colombia El Meridiano coffee before being finished with cold brewed Dogwood NEON. Toasted caramel and toffee sweetness are coupled with sweet, ripe fruit notes. This beer delivers such an intense coffee punch that it’ll have you wondering whether you should drink it by the mug or by the pint!
