A new trend has emerged in Northeast taproom culture: environmental advocacy.
On Aug. 27, Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness and the Theater of Public Policy will try to “make sulfide mining advocacy funny,” through a theater event at Indeed Brewing Company.
The event is a combination of interviews with experts on the issue as well as improvisational sketch comedy offering commentary on the possible environmental affects of sulfide mining.
Tickets are $10 and include entry in a drawing for door prizes. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the performance begins at 7 p.m., lasting about an hour.
Indeed will provide beer and Gastrotruck will be on-site for food.
Per an Indeed Brewing Company statement about the event, the company is committed to “be[ing] as close to a sustainable company as possible and within a reasonable means.”
According to Paul Danicic, the executive director of Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness, sulfide mining near the BWCA threatens to pollute the canoe area’s waters.
Indeed Brewing Company is located at 711 15th Ave NE.
