Indeed Brewing to Release Strawberry Fields Sour Ale in Cans


MINNEAPOLIS — Indeed Brewing will bring fan favorite Strawberry Fields Sour Ale to 12 oz. cans in late January 2018. Strawberry Fields is Indeed’s second canned sour beer offering after releasing Lucy Session Sour earlier this year.

Strawberry Fields was initially released in May 2016, as part of craft beer giant New Belgium Brewing’s “Beers with Vrienden” collaboration series. It quickly gained a strong fan base due to its unique balance of fruity sweetness and tart citrus along with its eye-catching reddish pink color. Originally planned to be a one-time brew, Indeed got the green light from New Belgium to provide the strawberry sour with a permanent patch at the Minnesota brewery.

“We liked Strawberry Fields so much we got the okay to reprise it,” said Indeed Head Brewer Josh Bischoff. “We kettle sour it with our house Lactobacillus strain, then add Belma hops for their strawberry characteristics. Once the fermentation gets going, we add generous amounts of strawberry.”

The finished product is a light, crisp, and refreshingly tart brew with notes of strawberry and citrus. A perfect pick for both beginning and experienced sour beer drinkers, Strawberry Fields will release on draft and in 12 oz. cans the week of January 22nd. The cans will feature all new designs from local artist Chuck U.

Indeed Brewing will celebrate the release of Strawberry Fields at Lone Oak Grill in Eagan on January 25th at 3pm. In addition to Strawberry Fields, several other berry-inspired beers will be on tap, including Double Chocolate Raspberry Stir Crazy Porter, Blueberry B-Side Pils, and Wooden Soul: In the Thicket, a Wood-Aged Sour Golden Ale with Raspberries.
