Minneapolis' Indeed Brewing Co. will open a 10-barrel brewery and taproom at 530 S. 2nd St., in Walker's Point next spring, according to a report by Kathy Flanagan in the Journal Sentinel.
Indeed Brewing Company was launched in 2012 by Rachel Anderson, Nathan Berndt and Tom Whisenand, and currently employs 65 people.
According to its website, the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District-based brewery's, "diverse offerings are anchored by its flagship Day Tripper Pale Ale, and rounded out by seasonal and experimental brews, as well as the Wooden Soul series of wild, sour, and barrel-aged beer."
The newspaper reports that Indeed has tapped Kahler Slater to design its Milwaukee brewery, at which it plans seating for around 100 people, and expects to hire about 20 employees here.
Indeed offers tours of its Minneapolis brewery, but it's unclear whether or not it will do them here.
