MINNEAPOLIS and MILWAUKEE — Indeed Brewing Company is pleased to announce that it is bringing back Indeed We Can after a two-month hiatus.
On Wednesday, May 20, a refocused Indeed We Can program will be in place for the duration of the Minneapolis and Milwaukee taprooms’ limited operations. One-hundred percent of the net proceeds on Wednesdays will go to a Covid-19 General Relief Fund, which will be distributed to organizations in the Twin Cities and Milwaukee areas that are supporting people who are disproportionately affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
Rather than highlighting one employee-chosen organization a week, Indeed will be dividing funds equally between three company-selected organizations per location for the next 15 weeks.
“I have always been immensely proud of our Indeed We Can program since we started it six years ago. It provides Indeed employees a great avenue to engage with our community while delivering much-needed financial support to organizations whose work is much more noble than brewing beer,” says Tom Whisenand, owner. “Deciding to restart the program after this recent Covid-19-related pause was an easy decision to make; supporting our community and those in need has never been more important. Indeed is a small business that would not exist without the support of so many members of our community and we see it as part of our DNA to give back to that community as best we can.”
In 2014, Indeed Brewing Company opened its previously closed doors on Wednesday nights to give 100 percent of the net proceeds to employee-chosen causes. On March 16, 2020, in response to the global pandemic and in compliance with government orders in Minnesota and Wisconsin where we operate two breweries and taprooms, Indeed closed its taproom doors and suspended Indeed We Can.
All of the previously scheduled Indeed We Can organizations will be rescheduled for when our taprooms are operating at full capacity.
About Indeed Brewing Company
At Indeed Brewing Company, we’re cultivating an artfully eclectic line-up of beers from the heart of Northeast Minneapolis and our new home in the Walker’s Point neighborhood of Milwaukee. Indeed’s diverse offerings are anchored by its flagship Day Tripper Pale Ale, driven by new hits like Flavorwave IPA and Mexican Honey Light, and elevated by its Wooden Soul series of wild, sour, and barrel-aged beer. Well-known as an engaged and community-oriented brewery, Indeed’s taprooms are warm, welcoming, and home to Indeed We Can, the company’s employee-driven charitable giving program, which donates 100% of taproom net profits to an employee-sponsored local nonprofit every Wednesday of the year. Indeed believes innovation isn’t just one thing—it’s a culture created around good people, good beers, and good experiences. Join them in the pursuit of what’s good.
