Beer of the Week: Indeed Brewing's Old Friend

This week's beer of the week is Old Friend, a winter warmer from Indeed Brewing Company. This limited release holiday brew was one of our picks for our Top 5 local winter seasonal beers a couple of weeks back, but after drinking a few pints of it around the patio campfire at Grumpy's NE, we decided this one needed a little extra attention.

This is the second year Indeed has offered Old Friend alongside their other winter seasonal, Stir Crazy. It pours a dark ruby red and smells like warm gingerbread, but there's a slightly bitter undercurrent to this beer that makes it go down more like an IPA than a true winter warmer. A little touch of honey sweetness and malt rounds out the profile of this medium-bodied beer. Pair it with raisin bread, fruit cake, beef stew, curry, or mushroom stroganoff.

In addition to being on tap at Grumpy's NE and the

brewery itself

, Indeed's seasonal beers are in rotation at

Groundswell Coffee

in St. Paul,

the Rabbit Hole

, and

the Sample Room

, just to name a few.
