When Indeed started brewing in northeast Minneapolis in August 2012, the neighborhood was far from the Twin Cities beer hub it is today. A lot has changed since they sold their first keg to Icehouse. Five years later, the brewery has won several awards and hired over 50 employees, and its products can be found in 1,440 different liquor stores, bars, and restaurants. For their official five-year party, they’re opening the facility to fans for a day. There will be self-guided brewery tours, a free shuttle to their offsite barrel-aging facility (you’ll score a free beer while you ride), and, best of all, cheap Day Tripper, Midnight Ryder, and Shenanigans on tap. The party moves across town to Icehouse (2528 Nicollet Ave., Minneapolis; 612-276-6523) in the evening, with live tunes from Ayvah, PaviElle, and Black Market Brass highlighted by giveaways, raffles, and a commemorative pint glass to toast to continued success. The open house runs from noon to 6 p.m., and the Icehouse party goes from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.
