Indeed Brewing Company (Minneapolis, Minnesota) has officially announced that Loretta’s Dark Lager will join the brewery’s Year-Round lineup in late September 2021.
Developed to embody a welcoming and nostalgic experience that is “a place, a person, and a vibe… a supper-club bar familiar to many, filled with years of good times and conversation,” Loretta’s Dark Lager is a Munich-style Dunkel Lager featuring Bamberger Munich and Briess Midnight Wheat malts and Mandarina and Hallertau Mittelfruh hops. Coming in at 5.6% ABV, Loretta’s Dark Lager boasts aromas of “fresh-toasted bread and . . . light Noble spice” alongside flavorful notes of “rich Munich malt with a hint of chocolate.”
“Loretta’s Dark Lager fills the need for a malty beer in our core lineup,” says Sales Director Ryan Bandy. “We love this one because it drinks like a crisp lager that you want to drink a bunch of; it’s the best of both worlds.”
Loretta’s Dark Lager is rolling out now and will be available Year-Round in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft. You can expect to find this new offering at craft beer-focused establishments located within Indeed’s distribution footprint in Minnesota, North Dakota and Wisconsin. Prost!

Fun Fact – On the label artwork created by local Minneapolis artist Chuck U: “‘We asked Chuck to create a sense of place with Loretta’s can art. A place familiar to many, filled with years of good times and conversation. A place you walk into knowing you’re going to have a great time. And a place you might walk out with a fresh perspective or new understanding,’ says Creative Director Andy Kiekhafer. ‘Examining the can you’ll find lots of treasures—little accents and details filled with local lore and legends. But Lorettas isn’t some made-up place; it’s a place where you’ve run into old neighbors, shared a family meal, and met new friends along the way!’”
