A look at a local brewer: Indeed Brewing Company

We spend half of the year shoveling snow and finding our way to work in adverse conditions – all with a sense of pride. Why? Because, we’re Minnesotan and that’s what it means to live here. We’re a hearty bunch and when spring comes we also embrace it with zeal.



Whether we’re starting our gardens, visiting farmers markets or just getting outside to breathe the fresh air, we’re as quick to embrace the sun as we are to face the cold. Fresh means something to us because we don’t take it for granted. We have to work for it. Indeed Brewing Company embodies that Minnesota spirit; with their beers, you’re taking a sip of Minnesota.

Coming home to 612 Brew

From Dinkytown to Edina. From Uptown to Downtown. The Metro Transit #6 bus gets you to school, to work, and at the end of the day, it gets you home. That’s what it means to 612 Brew co-founder Robert Kasak.



You see, before he was a brewer, Robert rode the #6 bus to work every day. More importantly, he rode that bus home every night. “To this day, when I see the #6 I think about home,” says Robert over beers at the 612 Taproom in Northeast Minneapolis. “That’s what it has always meant to me, and I always knew wherever I ended up, however far I’d wandered, or however much I’d over-celebrated, when I saw that #6 come by I knew it would get me home.”

Friday, December 13, 2013

A bit of the bubbly is the hallmark of festive celebrations. But sparkling wine is good for more than a toast at the stroke of the New Year. It’s also great with a variety of delicious foods ranging from caviar to cookies.
