Indeed Brewing is coming to more of Minnesota

Indeed Brewing is expanding its Minnesota footprint.

The Minneapolis-based brewery will begin distributing in the Grand Rapids area by June 1, and co-founder Nathan Berndt told BringMeTheNews Monday they're hoping to fill the entire state by the end of the year.

Here's a map that shows you can buy Indeed beers – available on draft and in cans – in most of Minnesota and all of North Dakota.

The expansion into north-central Minnesota (the black area on the map) is the brewery's latest since Indeed opened its taproom in 2012. Indeed has grown quickly – by 2014, the company was already surpassing its projections for its fifth year in business, The Growler reported.

In 2015, Indeed sold just over 11,000 barrels – that's the same as more than 152,000 cases of beer – up 42 percent over the year before, a news release said. More than 80 percent of the beer was sold in the Twin Cities.

Despite growth being slower than expected last year due to "fierce competition in bars and restaurants" with other breweries, the release says, Indeed has plans to further expand its distribution outside of Minnesota.

Berndt told BringMeTheNews it's looking to sell its beers in Wisconsin and South Dakota, but they don't have a timetable for when they'll launch in those markets.

Indeed is among the Minnesota breweries that continue to expand. Surly announced last month it would sell its beers in more states, including the Dakotas and Nebraska.

And over the weekend, a few Minnesota breweries went to Chicago for the Beverage Alcohol for Restaurants show as they consider new markets. They went with the help of the Minnesota Department of Agriculture and its New Markets Program.
