​Mark your calendars and grab your koozies because CANvitational is almost upon us!

Thursday, August 24, 2017



Saturday September 9th Sun King will host its 5th annual beer festival. The Sun King CANvitational will take place at Pan Am Plaza and on the 100 block of Georgia Street in downtown Indianapolis. Georgia Street combines a pedestrian boardwalk, overhead lighting, integrated seating, and landscaping; providing the perfect location for 60+ to celebrate the art of can craft beer.


CANvitational is set to showcase breweries from all over America who CAN. The 5th Annual CANvitational will provide patrons with samples of craft beer from award winning breweries from across the US. Local eats will be provided by local food trucks, music that will be sure to get everyone dancing in the streets - all in an urban downtown atmosphere.


General admission and early entry tickets are available online, but the cost will increase the day of CANvitational so move fast and save money on the Midwest’s largest canned craft beer festival!


CANvitational has been made possible because of eight non-profits and community partners taking time and volunteering. Help us celebrate and thank our volunteers by swinging by our downtown Indy brewery and Fishers taproom throughout the rest of August to grab pints and growlers that ultimately give back to these wonderful Indy non-profits.


$1 from every pint sold at pint day happening on August 24th and $1 from every growler sold during growler fill Friday on August 25th goes back to eight of Sun King’s chosen community partners. Additionally, August 16th – 21st all tips received will be donated to the eight community partners:


  • Art with a Heart
  • Little Red Door
  • Joy’s House
  • Gleaners
  • Indy Hub
  • Second Helpings
  • Outreach Inc.
  • City Market
