Cold Beer. Warm Fuzzies. Indeed We Can.
If brewing top-notch beer for the people around us is the core of who we are at Indeed Brewing Company, then engagement with our community is our backbone. Giving back is as fundamental to us as brewing delicious beer, and we’re always seeking new ways to engage.
Indeed We Can is our charitable initiative, and it puts the power of doing good straight into the hands of the people who make Indeed tick: our employees! Our Minneapolis and Milwaukee taprooms are open on Wednesdays, and each Wednesday night’s net proceeds will be donated to a local nonprofit chosen by an Indeed employee.
We hope to establish lasting connections between our brewery and the worthy local nonprofits out in the field each day making our communities stronger, happier, and healthier. In most cases, representatives from the selected organizations will join us in the taproom to share their mission over a pint or two. We’ll do our part by featuring the event on our social media platforms, and cross-promote with nonprofits to raise awareness of Indeed We Can and get more folks in our taprooms on Wednesdays, raising a glass to these employee-supported causes.
Are you part of a nonprofit that would love to be considered for Indeed We Can? Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with information about your organization and why you want to be involved. All charities are chosen by Indeed Brewing Company employees, so there are no guarantees, but we want you to reach out! Let’s drink beer on a Wednesday and feel good doing it, shall we? #ColdBeerWarmFuzzies #IndeedWeCan.
