Best New Brewery - 2013
Indeed Brewing Company
The Twin Cities craft-brew scene is growing at a phenomenal rate. Without looking up figures, somewhere around 500 breweries sprung up this year — or that's how it feels anyway. While they all have some excellent qualities, Indeed Brewing Company of northeast Minneapolis stands out for its hoppy Day Tripper Pale Ale and doubly hoppy Midnight Ryder American Black Ale — two well-known styles in microbrews, but two beers that Indeed has mastered and made its own. Coming in cans and draught, the bold and refreshing tastes are perfect to settle down with after a hard day at the office, plowing the fields, or whatever it is you do. Bonus points are awarded for its location in the Solar Arts Building.
