Oskar Blues is now available in the Twin Cities market. You may recognize the iconic Dale’s Pale Ale can, but have you tried Old Chub or Deviant Dales? If not, you should.

Indeed Brewing is expanding distribution to the Brainerd Lakes area, Bemidji, and St. Cloud. This is possible due to a partnership with D & D Beer Company out of Little Falls, Minnesota. Camping in Minnesota is quite popular and anyone who knows the crew at Indeed knows that this has always been important to them.

“We’re very excited to expand our reach in Minnesota,” said Indeed Brewing Co-Founder Nathan Berndt. “At Indeed, we’re all big fans of spending time in the outdoors, so it’s very exciting to make our beer easily available in parts of the state where outdoor recreation is a way of life.” 

Coming up on Wednesday, April 16th, Indeed will pair with the fine folks at Dinner on the Farm for some beer and food pairing.
