This is my favorite of the new tap rooms in Mineapolis, and smokes the competition in the North East area.

Atmosphere- Great space, old warehouse with high ceilings, the bar is huge, spanning almost the entirety of the long side wall, huge windows on the oppose side look out onto the patio and the rail line, where trains pass by every so often. Very relaxed, good size, great for a pair or group.

Service- Just bar tenders, wide open bar early, but it gets packed by nightfall. Still it isnt at all hard to get a beer.

Selection- All the Indeed regulars, rotating special, seasonal, and their specialties in bottle. Usually a cask beer too.

Food- They always have a different food truck, but I decided not to rate since it isnt their production

$$- Its 50 cents extra to get the 20 oz over the pint. Thats not even fair. To me. Tomorrow.

these guys are awesome, and their brewery matches their quality. old building revamped to be a perfect brewery, old brick throughout, a rustic midwestern feel, and a lot of space. big main bar in front with patio, and a smaller bar in the back to handle excess demand. they were kind enough to give us a special tour, and all the people involved there were first rate. quite substantial production capacity, its clear the locals are loyal to these guys, as their handles were all over the cities, and the hype is real. maybe fifteen beers on in total, with some experimental stuff happening too. the blueberry mosaic pale ale was excellent, as was the wooden soul series from top to bottom. they have a lot of innovative recipes, and i think they are all so well executed. i also found even their styles that tend to be sweeter on the dried side, which i always prefer. the rum stout is insane, and all of the people i met here were just so happy to have us. we dont have breweries like this in denver, it has a really cool vibe all of its own. they also apparently have an offsite barrel program that is starting to ramp up. looking forward to seeing what comes out of there, but this is not to be missed if you visit the twin cities. one of my favorite breweries there so far!

Nice old warehouse feeling. Good beer, clean and open with lots of room.

Very good brewery but perhaps not deserving of its lofty reputation (winner of the City Pages' award for best local brewery). Good variety of styles, with occasional cask conditioned and nitro choices.

Had the chance to visit the Indeed tap house this weekend with my wife, my sister, and her husband. This place is tucked away pretty well off of a residential area in a mostly-abandoned industrial zone. We thought we had missed it until we turned a corner and saw all the cars and people.

V: This place has a great atmosphere. There's a large patio area that was completely full when we pulled up. A pretty big cross-section of people, from wealthy yuppie-types to cyclists to college students to families. The tap room itself isn't overly big, but there are quite a few large tables and stool seating along the windows. They have an indoor shuffleboard and a bunch of board games you can take and hang out with for a while. The bar is very long, and there were quite a few employees on hand to take orders. Nice signage throughout, and a clear attention to detail. If I lived in the area, I would definitely want to stop by regularly to kill a few hours.

Q: Everyone in our party ordered something different, and with the exception of my brother-in-law (who's notoriously difficult to please), everyone loved their beers. My wife especially loved their L.S.D. brew, which has some fantastic lavender and honey notes from the tap. My Let It Ride IPA was one of the best Midwest IPAs I've ever had.

S: The place was absolutely bumping, but our bartenders were wonderfully courteous and accommodating. Staff were regularly coming around to pick up empties, and there was the impression that everyone was enjoying what they were doing.

S: I would have liked to have seen a few more beers on tap, but as it was, we could choose from about ten different brews--about five year-round beers and another five that were seasonals. I didn't feel like my options were limited really, and we wound up having to leave before I got to try all the ones I wanted.

We wound up going to Surly later in the day, but I think I might have enjoyed myself at Indeed even more. There's a coziness and intimacy to this place that's really endearing, and I'm more than impressed with the service and product they had to share. Be sure to check this place out if you get to Minneapolis.
