Northbound Smokehouse & Brewpub and Indeed Brewing Co. are set to appear on Beer Geeks TV, the first national television show about craft beer, on Nov. 9. The episode will be broadcasted live at 12:30 am on Nov. 9 on WFTC/MyFox 29. To celebrate, Northbound Smokehouse will host a pair of special screenings of the episode on Nov. 9 and Nov. 10 and will offer an extended late night happy hour with $3 house beers from 10 pm to 2 am. For those unable to attend the late-night screening, Northbound Smokehouse will host two additional screenings on Nov. 10 at 11:00 am and again at 7:00 pm.
The episode centers on Hot Box, a collaborative beer created by Northbound Smokehouse and Indeed Brewing Company. To create this Imperial Smoked Porter, Northbound hickory smoked 150 pounds of jalapeño and Fresno peppers and cold-smoked malts. The ingredients were then incorporated into the brewing process at Indeed Brewing Co.’s Northeast Minneapolis brewery.
To honor the collaboration with Indeed Brewing, Northbound Smokehouse will also offer a partial “tap takeover” with several special Indeed Brewing beers along with Northbound’s house offerings. This is the only episode in Beer Geeks TV’s inaugural season to feature Minnesota breweries.
