Sun King Plans Major Expansion

Indiana's Second-Largest Craft Brewery Plans to Expand to Fishers

FISHERS, Ind. - The Town Council will consider an economic development agreement tonight that would bring Indiana's second-largest brewery to Fishers. If approved, Sun King Brewery will build its second craft brewery on 12.76 acres located at the southeast corner of Kincaid Dr. and Park Central Dr., bringing an estimated $19.5 million in regional economic impact and 27,000 visitors to Sun King's proposed facility and the Fishers community. Fishers has committed to capture property tax for 25 years, estimated at $100,000 annually, to help offset capital costs and to fund surrounding public infrastructure.
  
"Sun King embodies the vibrant, entrepreneurial spirit that Fishers fosters throughout the community," said Town Manager Scott Fadness. "The expansion into Fishers not only creates a new destination for our community, but also aligns with our mission to create an environment in which high-growth, high-potential companies compete and thrive."

 


Sun King opened its doors in downtown Indianapolis in 2009 and has expanded its capacity by eight times since then. The brewery is expected to produce more than 28,000 barrels of beer in 2014 and needs to expand in order to continue to grow. "Fishers is the perfect community for our second brewery," explained Sun King President Omar Robinson. "The town is excited about having us, and we can't wait to produce our fresh local beer even closer to the many north-side residents who already enjoy Sun King, as well as introduce our beer to a new community. Sun King sells more craft beer in Indiana than any other Indiana brewery, and this new brewery will allow us to continue to meet the demand for our beer."

The new brewery will be purpose-built to accommodate future growth, and the tasting room will be large enough to hold hundreds of thirsty Hoosiers. Sun King will continue to brew beer in the current brewery at 135 North College Ave. in Indianapolis, and both breweries will offer Sun King's house lineup of Sunlight Cream Ale, Osiris Pale Ale and Wee Mac Scottish-style Ale, as well as countless seasonal and specialty beers.
    

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thompson Thrift will coordinate and work with the Town of Fishers to cause abike and running path to be installed along Kincaid Drive, connecting 106th Street to the new brewery, which will enhance Fisher's trail system and provide residents with easy access to Sun King. Thompson Thrift is a full-service real estate development and construction company with offices in Terre Haute, Ind.; Indianapolis; Carmel, Ind.; and Houston.

"We are excited that once again Sun King Brewery has chosen Indiana as a fixture in its long-term business plans," said Eric Doden, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation. "We have worked hard to create an environment that promotes growth and creates more opportunities for Hoosiers, and we look forward to continuing to watch them expand here in the future."

Real Ale Brewing Releases
18th Anniversary Gose Cans


GOSE is the newest canned offering from Real Ale Brewing Co.

BLANCO, TX –  will be releasing its 18th Anniversary Gose state-wide in 12oz. cans this week. First served earlier this year at our annual anniversary celebration, this refreshing wheat beer was previously draft only.

“We originally collaborated with our friends at Odell Brewing Co. back in February to create the recipe, and we brewed 7 bbl at their place in Fort Collins, CO. As soon as we tasted it, we knew that it would be the perfect beer for our 18th Anniversary party and for the imminent Texas summer,” says Brewmaster Erik Ogershok.

Gose is a rarely brewed regional specialty beer from Northern Germany. A slightly sour ale, it is known for its use of coriander and a unique saltiness that is derived from the local water source. Our take on the traditional German style has a distinctly Southwestern twist - a bright acidity from the addition of pureed limes. The resulting tartness makes for a delicious and thirst quenching summer brew. “After the response we had at the anniversary party, it would have been difficult not to offer this beer in cans for the summer,” says Ogershok.

Sun King Brewery Announces
2nd Annual CANvitational

Indianapolis, Ind. - In 2009, Sun King Brewery brought Indianapolis local beer for the first time since the Indianapolis Brewing Company closed its doors in 1948. Sun King will host the 2nd CANvitational canned craft beer festival, Saturday, Sept. 20 on the west block of Georgia Street, located in downtown Indy.

The Sun King CANvitational will bring over 40 craft breweries representing 23 states and international breweries to Georgia Street and Pan Am Plaza from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. (EST). Tickets, available online at www.canvitational.com, are $60 for general admission day of the event and $75 for early entry.  Sun King is running a $40 ticket special for advanced general admission ticket purchased online before August 31st.  Event proceeds to benefit the Arts Council of Indianapolis.

The invited breweries were selected because of the quality of craft beer they are producing and, as the name of the event suggests, the festival will feature breweries that can their beers. Since craft beer's inception in the 1980s, bottles have been the most commonly associated with craft beer. However, over the last decade the breweries featured at the CANvitational have been led a revival of craft canning and helped change the way people view cans.

New to this year's festival, the CAN'd ART show on Friday, Sept. 19th located in the Indianapolis Arts Garden.  A celebration of the CANvitational's partnership with the Indianapolis Arts Council and the unique art that adorns the cans we love. Local artists have selected a variety of cans from participating breweries attending the 2014 CANvitational and transformed them into reinvented pieces of art. Join participating brewers and artists in a reception where art and craft (beer that is) collide.  Event tickets include complimentary appetizers and FRESH•LOCAL•BEER will be available. Tickets are very limited.

"We believe that cans are the best way to package beer and breweries from across the country, including a great number of highly respected and established breweries, have help affirm that idea by choosing to can their beer." Said Sun King Co-Founder Clay Robinson. "Cans keep beer safe from two of beers greatest enemies, sunlight and oxygen, in a way that glass bottles can't. Cans are also more environmentally friendly to make, transport and recycle, which is why so many breweries are currently making the choice to can."

In addition to great, canned craft beer, attendees will have plenty of food options for purchase from food trucks that will line Georgia Street. Music will be provided throughout the event by DJ Helicon and DJ Action Jackson.

"We have invited our friends from across the country who share our passion for crafting world class beers and we are excited to showcase what they do and why we can." Robinson added. "The most exciting part is that the majority of the beers available at the CANvitational aren't even available in Indiana, which gives us the opportunity to provide a truly unique experience!"

Ska is proud to announce the release of its first mainstay since the death of Ten Pin Porter (RIP). Rudie session IPA weighs in at only 4.5% Alcohol by volume but is hopped  in the style an American IPA. "It's a beer you can drink for breakfast" says Dave Thibodeau, President and Co-Founder of Ska "We wanted to brew an aggressively hopped beer that you can drink a few of and still hold your shit together."

"We wanted to brew an aggressively hopped beer that you can drink a few of and still hold your shit together."

The beer was conceived through a long standing tradition of brewing a one-off specialty beer for the Durango Film Festival. "Every year we brew something different for the film fest." says Thomas Larsen, Head Brewer at Ska "It needs to be flavorful, approachable, and sessionable enough that folks aren't launching projectiles at the screen mid-film. The last few years we've been experimenting with low alcohol beers that retain the big flavor profile people expect of an IPA. We knew we were on to something." Rudie hits the shelves in early August and will be unveiled at the Colorado Brewers Guild's inaugural Sesh Fest on August 2nd at Sculpture Park in Denver.

SanTan Brewing to Introduce CanZilla Crowlers on July 24th


SanTan Brewing to Launch Arizona’s First Aluminum Growler 

Chandler, Arizona (July 18, 2014)— It’s official, on July 24, 2014 Arizona craft beer lovers will now be legally allowed to purchase and fill growlers made of materials other than glass. So, in true SanTan Brewing Company style – the CanZilla Crowler is born!

“The Arizona Craft Brewers Guild fought a great battle on our behalf to get the growler laws changed in Arizona. To celebrate these exciting times in local craft beer we are working to continue our promotion of the can as the superior packaging method,” said Anthony Canecchia, founder and brewmaster, SanTan Brewing Company.

The 32 oz. Crowler system will allow patrons to take their favorite SanTan beer to go including small batch seasonal brews that are only available at SanTan Brewing and not in stores – fresh from the tap, daily. These single use, recyclable cans are packaged, labeled and sealed right at the pub and are easily transported to any outdoor adventure or tailgate. Once sealed, each CanZilla Crowler keeps its freshness for up to seven days.

SanTan Brewing Company is the first brewery in Arizona to offer the CanZilla Crowler as an aluminum alternative to the traditional glass growler. There are about to be a lot of happy Count Hopula and Winter Warmer fans at SanTan this year.

About SanTan Brewing Company

Open since 2007 under the leadership of founder and brewmaster, Anthony Canecchia, SanTan Brewing Company has established a strong reputation as one of Arizona’s favorite craft breweries. In addition to brewing, SanTan features a friendly neighborhood brewpub in Downtown Chandler, which has quickly become one of the top local food and beer destinations in the Phoenix metro area.

All SanTan Brewing Company craft beers are Southwestern Style Ales. SanTan’s brews are fermented to completion and carbonated higher than traditional American beers for a more effervescent, crisp and refreshing hand crafted beer – perfect for quenching your thirst in the hot Arizona sun and throughout the southwestern region of the US.
