June marks Pride Month in Indianapolis and with the help of our community partnership with Indy Pride, we are ready to celebrate.
Indy Pride is a non-profit organization seeking to produce events to educate and celebrate the diversity of the Indianapolis LGBTQ+ community. Their hallmark event is the Indy Pride Festival and Parade, happening this year on June 9. The Cadillac Barbie Pride Parade begins at 10 a.m. at the intersection of College and Mass Ave. and travels through downtown until its end location at Historic Military Park at White River State Park. If you are going to the parade, look for the SKB Crew walking along side some of our local community partners as we support love and equality for all!
Pride Festival doors open at 11 a.m. for this all-ages event with two live music stages and a Family Fun Zone, along with vendors, food and drinks. Make sure to grab your tickets for this all-day event.
Pride Month also brings a limited release from the Sun King with Amber Has Two Moms. Amber Has Two Moms is an American Amber Ale with a beautiful red hue and a rich caramel malt flavor. This is the first time we have canned this beer, and we are very happy to announce that 10 percent of the proceeds are going to go right back to Indy Pride (cans and draft). We have also partnered with Louisville Pride and 10 percent of the proceeds of the beer sold in Louisville to benefit.
"Sun King has been such an incredible supporter of the LGBTQ+ Community and Indy Pride as an organization," Chris Handberg, Indy Pride executive director, said. "We are excited for everyone to enjoy Sun King at Indy Pride Fest this year, featuring their special Pride Beer: Amber Has Two Moms. Time and time again, Sun King has demonstrated their commitment to our community, we are humbled by their generosity, and are proud to call them friends."
Look for Amber Has Two Moms at the Sun King tap rooms and on shelves in metro Indy soon!
