Indeed Brewing’s Rails and AlesPosted: May 20, 2013
I feel a little bit of blogging mojo coming back after Saturday’s Rails and Ale’s event at Indeed Brewing. Such a FUN DAY! Lots going on and oodles to do….Northeast Minneapolis had their annual Art-a-Whirl (studio hopping around the neighborhood), so it was the perfect time for Indeed to open up their parking lot and taproom to the masses. Live music (several bands throughout the day), food trucks, merchandise, Shenanigans summer ale is back, and the release of their new seasonal beer LSD (lavender, sunflower honey, dates). All good things!
I was at Indeed earlier in the week dipping LSD bottles in pretty purple wax. Oooooooo….
DT and I woke up Saturday morning to pouring rain. Pouring. And thunder, and lightning. I (along with many others) worried that the day would be a total wash (no pun intended), but by noon – absolutely perfect timing for Rails and Ales to start – the sun was trying to poke through and the clouds were starting to float away. It turned out to be a sunny, steamy day that was quite suited for drinking (or pouring = me) beers.
Lots of doggies visited too.
This was where I spent the better part of my day….the beer trailer was pristine until we started pouring and it got a wee bit messy.
Here’s one of my beer-pouring partners, Gina. She loves the raccoon. Turns out we make a good team for these sorts of events!
A few hours later….a little more crazy and a LOT more people.
DT showed up toward the end of my shift and we hung out whilst sipping beers, listening to music, and chatting with friends.
The day flew by….all of the sudden it was getting dark and finally cooling off. I got a sweet farmer’s tan in my Indeed t-shirt and my nose is still quite red. It was a complete blast, and I can’t wait to pour beers for them again. I really honed my skills after the first 500 or so. 😉
