From the Road Trippin’ Desk:
WHERE ARE YOU TODAY? Indeed Brewing Company.
AND WHAT DO YOU HAVE THERE? I’m drinking a cask version of the Day Tripper APA dry-hopped with Cascades.
CASK? DRY-HOPPED? THIS SOUNDS COMPLICATED. Science! It’s been conditioned and served from a cask without CO2 pressure. And hops have been added after fermentation.
HOW DOES IT TASTE? As a cask beer, the floral nose of the Cascades really comes through. It finishes very clean with a bit of citrus and maybe a little pine. It’s bitter, but it keeps you coming back for more.
WAIT… WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING IN MINNEAPOLIS ANYWAY? The wife had a work conference up here, and even though I hate to admit it, I love the Twin Cities, so I thought I would make a trip of it.
TRAITOR. I still hate the Vikings. Go Pack!
RIGHT THEN. HOW’D YOU STUMBLE UPON THIS PLACE? I was introduced to their beer last fall at a beer bar in the Uptown neighborhood. I figured I should seek out the source.
AH, YES. WAS THAT THE SWEET YAMMA JAMMA? [Pun alert!] Indeed.
AND THE CROWD GOES WILD.
DEEP THOUGHTS: This is a pretty cool tap room. Their patio is nicely shaded, there’s a food truck parked outside, they’ve got free shuffleboard, and cool artwork. I say, get thee here.
(Thanks to Matt, whose dedication to the Green Bay Packers should never be questioned.)
