Sun King Turns 3!
Three years ago we fired up our brew kettle and began crafting beer at 135 N. College Avenue in downtown Indianapolis! It was an incredible and challenging day that was the culmination of years of conversation, planning, and hard work.
In the beginning there were four of us in what seemed like a cavernous warehouse doing everything that needed done and putting in as many hours as it took. As we rolled out kegs of beer and word began to spread, we started picking up more draft accounts around town. This initial surge, and all of our growth to date, is because of everyone who loves our beer and helps spread the good word about Sun King!
Growth in demand has kept us in a constant state of expansion and over time we have leased more space, replaced most of our original equipment and most importantly, created jobs to the tune of 32 full-time and 50+ part-time employees. Our rise has been meteoric and we are now the second largest brewery in Indiana, producing half as much beer as our friends at 3 Floyds and only slightly more than the good folks at Upland.
Indiana beer culture has grown and changed tremendously over the past many years and the number of Great American Beer Festival and World Beer Cup medals garnered by Indiana brewers is staggering. There are more breweries opening all the time, not only here but all across the country. We are proud to be an Indiana craft brewery and a part of the craft beer movement that is changing the way people think about beer!
We are truly grateful to be doing what we love and to have so many people enjoy our work. Thank you from the entire Sun King Crew for making helping us make our dreams come true!
