Sun King Save Your Tabs Challenge Benefitting Ronald McDonald House of Indiana


Wednesday, April 13, 2016

 

 


 

 

 

This marks Sun King's fifth installment of our Collect Your Tabs Challenge, benefitting the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana!  We challenge you, fans of Fresh•Local•Beer, to collect aluminum tabs, of all types and turn them in for prizes.  Join forces with your co-workers, family, and friends to collect as many aluminum tabs (beer, soda, energy drinks, canned water) as you can from April 14th - August 13th, 2016.  

 

We ask that all collected tabs will be turned in at on Saturday, August at our downtown Indy Sun King Brewery location (we will ONLY be collecting these tabs on this date for prizes and will ONLY be collecting them at our downtown brewery location).  Those who have participated will be awarded various Sun King prizes (see below).  The bounty of collected tabs will be dropped off to the Ronald McDonald House to be recycled!

 

Why Should You Collect Can Tabs?

Not only is the can tab important for the purpose of opening your favorite Fresh•Local•Beer, it is also a valuable resource that generates much-needed funds to cover the operating costs to run the Ronald McDonald House to support families in need. Don't forget to recycle your cans too - that is important for our environment!

 

Fun Facts about Tabs:

  • 1 lbs = 1,267 Tabs
  • 1 inch = 1 pop tab
    1 foot = 12 pop tabs
    1 mile = 63,360 pop tabs
  •  
  • What does the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana do?

    Nearly 1,500 families are served at the House each year while their children receive life-saving treatments at Indianapolis-area hospitals, including Riley Children's Hosiptal. Over one billion tabs have been donated in 15 years since the program began, generating about $500,000 in revenue. The Ronald McDonald House focuses on those families with a critically ill or injured child. The House is the only organization in Central Indiana that provides low-cost, short-term-to-long-term lodging for these families.

     

    Fund received from the recycled tabs adds up to $30-$50K annually. These funds go towards the operating costs of the Ronald McDonald House and will cover the costs of operating 3 rooms in the House for an entire year.

     

    How Can You Help?

    Help Sun King collect tabs by participating in the Save Your Tabs Challenge from April 14th - August 13th, 2016. Sun King will continue to collect tabs at various community events around town.  Be sure to drop off your collected tabs on Saturday, August 13th, at our downtown brewery location. We will weigh your tabs and reward you with prizes, and then we’ll deliver the collective bounty of tabs to the Ronald McDonald House where it will go to help those in need.  

     

    Reminders:  Please do not use plastic soda bottles or milk jugs because they’re hard to empty!  Keep in mind if the tab sticks to a magnet, it cannot be used.  Please check your tabs from soup and other cans - some are aluminum and can be used; others are steel and cannot.
     

     

     

    Prizes are detailed below:

  • • 1 to 4.9 lbs: $5 Gift Card
  • • 5 to 9.9 lbs: $5 Gift Card and a SKB Pint Glass
  • • 10 to 19.9 lbs: $10 Gift Card
  • • 20 to 49.9 lbs: $10 Gift Card PLUS one entry in a drawing for a $100 SKB Gift Bag

  • Sun King Community Partner Spotlight: SNSI


    Thursday, March 10, 2016

     

     

    Last month, five puppies, abandoned, cold, and frightened, huddled together in a cardboard box to stay warm. Indianapolis firefighters discover the pups, and take them to the local animal shelter, where they receive much needed medical attention. Rescue Farm, a local animal rescue group, locates a foster home where the pups can continue their recovery and also covers their medical costs. That’s when they turn to SNSI for help in ensuring that all the puppies can be spayed/neutered and adoption-ready. This is just one example of how SNSI is helping animals all across Indiana and breaking the cycle of unwanted litters.

    ________________________________________________________________

    As you drive around Indiana, have you ever spotted a smart-looking license plate sporting a dog and cat? You might be interested to know that the plate also helps save animal lives every single day.

     

    When you purchase a Pet Friendly License Plate, $25 comes to Spay-Neuter Services of Indiana (SNSI), to pay for spay-neuter surgeries all across the state. SNSI is a financial assistance organization whose mission is to eliminate shelter overpopulation and the euthanasia of healthy and treatable dogs and cats. Spay/neuter addresses the root cause of shelter overpopulation, and our strategic programs are designed to make Indiana a no-kill state.

     


     

    SNSI works with many partners across Indiana to make sure pets are fixed! We have a network of over 100 shared-mission vets to perform low-cost spay-neuter surgeries, and we provide certificates to over 200 rescue groups and municipal shelters. SNSI also assists limited income people so they can fix their own pets, as well as community cats, for just $20. Through these programs, SNSI has facilitated more than 92,000 surgeries to date!

     

    Our efforts are working! Many cities and towns are seeing reductions in shelter intake and euthanasia. Martinsville, for example, experienced a 75% decrease in euthanasia after implementing a “Community Cat” program, with SNSI providing support. In Indianapolis, euthanasia numbers have declined by more than 80% in the last 10 years due to low-cost spay/neuter options.

     

    So, the next time you renew your license plate, consider the Pet Friendly plate. It’s not just eye-catching – it’s making a world difference in improving the lives of Hoosier animals and their human companions!

     

    SNSI is a proud community partner of Sun King Brewing, who has sponsored our annual Hair Ball fundraiser (set for Oct. 1 this year) for going on 7 years running! Join SNSI this year for an evening of fun!

     


     

    Cooking with Sun King: Ring of Dingle Stew


    Tuesday, February 23, 2016

    Sun King's Chef Steven Unrue will be bringing our fans delectable dishes throughout the seasons.  Cooking with Sun King will feature not only our seasonal and speciality beers but will also highlight receipts with our House Beers and occasionally our Sun King King's Reserve Series beers.

     

    Spring is near bringing us delicious seasonal beers like our award winning Ring of Dingle Irish Stout.  This winter transition into spring Ring of Dingle Stew recipe is a perfect dish to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!

     


     

    Ring of Dingle Stew 

    6 Servings / 1 1/2 Hours Active Prep Time / 3 1/2 Hours Total Time

     

     

    Ingredients:
    1 cup homemade chicken stock or low-sodium broth
    4 packets unflavored powdered gelatin (3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon)
    4 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
    3 pounds whole boneless beef chuck roast, cut into 3 steaks
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1 1/4 pounds carrots, 1/2 pound peeled and split lengthwise, 3/4 pound cut into large dice
    6 ounces parsnips, half peeled and split lengthwise, half cut into large dice (about 1 cup)
    1 pound yellow onions, half peeled and split in half through the root, half cut into large dice (about 1 cup)
    4 medium cloves garlic, lightly crushed
    1/4 cup espresso or strong brewed coffee
    1 ounce bittersweet chocolate
    2 (16-ounce) cans Sun King "Ring of Dingle"
    1 bouquet garnis (about 4 sprigs thyme, 3 sprigs parsley, and 1 bay leaf, tied together with kitchen twine)
    1 tablespoon Asian fish sauce
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    8 ounces small waxy potatoes, such as baby Yukon Golds
    Minced flat-leaf parsley leaves and tender stems, for garnish

     

     

     

     

    Directions
    Preheat oven to 275°F. Pour chicken stock into a medium bowl and sprinkle gelatin evenly all over surface, allowing each packet's worth of gelatin to soak up stock before sprinkling next one on (if the gelatin clumps instead of dissolving evenly, you can use a blender to fix it). Set aside.

     

    In a large Dutch oven, heat 2 tablespoons (30ml) oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Season beef all over with salt and pepper and add to Dutch oven. Cook, turning occasionally, until beef is well browned on 2 sides, about 10 minutes. Transfer beef to a rimmed baking sheet.

     

    Add split carrots, split parsnip, halved onions, and garlic to Dutch oven and cook, turning occasionally, until lightly browned, about 4 minutes; lower heat if browned bits on bottom of Dutch oven threaten to burn.

     

    Scrape chicken stock and all gelatin into Dutch oven. Add coffee, chocolate, Guinness, bouquet garnis, fish sauce, soy sauce, and Worcestershire sauce and bring to a simmer, then lower heat to maintain simmer. Meanwhile, cut beef into 2-inch chunks and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add flour and stir until beef is evenly coated in a floury paste. Add beef and any accumulated juices to Dutch oven. Transfer to oven, cover with lid partially open, and cook for 1 hour, stirring every 30 minutes. Add potatoes and continue to cook until beef is starting to become tender, about 30 minutes longer.

     

    Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat remaining 2 tablespoons (30ml) oil. Add diced carrot, parsnip, and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

     

    Remove stew from oven. Using tongs, fish out and discard large pieces of carrot, parsnip, and onion. Discard bouquet garnis. Using a ladle, skim off and discard accumulated fat on surface. Add reserved sautéed diced vegetables to stew, return to oven, and cover with lid slightly cracked. Continue to cook until beef and potatoes are tender, about 45 minutes longer, removing lid for last 25 minutes.

     

    Remove stew from oven. If serving right away, skim off any additional fat from surface. Season with salt and pepper, if needed. Allow to cool slightly before serving, then serve topped with parsley. If making ahead, cool down stew, then chill in refrigerator; remove solid fat cap from surface once fully chilled.

     

    Reheat stew on the stovetop or in a low oven.

    Community Partner Spotlight: March of Dimes


    Tuesday, January 26, 2016

     


     

     

    We are directly in New Year’s Resolution Zone. Yes, that time of year where everyone is motived to lose weight, get organized and be a “better you”. This year, March of Dimes has one resolution: to give a fighting chance for every baby. For those of you that are particularly ambitious the March of Dimes could use your support! Our annual March for Babies walk is just around the corner and we are always adding walk teams and raising awareness for our moms and babies in the Indianapolis area!

     

    Date: Saturday, May 14, 2016

    Registration: 9:00AM | Start: 10:00 AM

    Walk distance: 2.2 miles

    White River State Park

    801 W. Washington St.

    Indianapolis, IN 46204

    (317) 262-4668 | IN354@marchofdimes.org

     

     

    Why do we walk? The March of Dimes is a long standing organization that has been around more than 75 years. We successfully over-came the threat of polio and one day, every family will know the joy of a healthy baby. We walk because premature birth is the most urgent infant health problem in the U.S. today. It affects more than half a million babies each year, including 1 in 9 in Indiana. The March of Dimes is committed to reducing this toll by funding research to find the answers to premature birth and providing comfort and information to affected families.

     

    Over 2,500 Indianapolis residents joined together in support of the smallest citizens of Indianapolis—babies—by participating in the 2015 March for Babies. Many families came out as part of their Mothers’ Day weekend celebrations and White River State Park was packed with strollers, families and corporate teams who raised more than $200,000 to help babies be born healthy.

     

    Money raised by the event funds research, education and local community grants for programs that help provide prenatal care to women, comfort to families of critically ill babies, and find the preventions and cures for the threats to the lives and health of babies.

    Together we can do great things, after all, we are all March of Dimes babies!

    Community Partner Spotlight: The Lord’s Pantry at Anna’s House


    Wednesday, January 13, 2016

     

    Handing Out Hope

     


     

     

    The holidays are over and the season of giving has been another great success for organizations like The Lord’s Pantry at Anna’s House that work hard to help families in need, especially during the colder months. Volunteers come from near and far during the holidays to give their time to serve the less fortunate, but organizations like Anna’s House are hard at work all year long, 52 weeks per year, never taking a holiday or a weekend off.

     

    The Lord’s Pantry at Anna’s House is a local food pantry and community center that has been serving an impoverished neighborhood on the near west side of Indianapolis for more than two decades, starting first as a sidewalk ministry. To understand our mission is to understand the great need to increase the amount of services we provide that encourage self-sufficiency. Without this type of approach, we are only feeding the cycle of poverty rather than handing out hope for a better future. The Lord’s Pantry at Anna’s House knows that to truly assist families in need we must provide more than a meal and supplemental groceries each week.

     

     

    While we have made many great strides in our efforts since the days on the sidewalk in the cold months of January and February, today we are operating out of a 3,000 square foot building. From this facility we provide weekly and sometimes daily (freshly prepared) community dinners and breakfast for as many as 200 families. We also distribute groceries, including fresh produce, during our weekly food pantry. We provide English classes; distribute school supplies, backpacks and shoes, offer health screenings, flu shots and dental check-ups. Anna’s House is also an important place throughout the holiday season as we are often the only opportunity for families to gather for a nice Thanksgiving and/or Christmas dinner.

     

    Providing these services to the constantly growing number of families each week in a facility of this size is extremely difficult, having to constantly set up, tear down, rearrange and negotiate space to be effective in our efforts. Therefore, we are currently in a campaign that will help build a new future for Anna’s House and the community we serve. But it’s more than square footage we are interested in. The guests of Anna’s House are also encouraged and in some cases required to participate in programs that include but are not limited to computer training, English classes, reading and writing, and financial literacy for adults. For children, these programs might include after school tutoring and mentoring, music classes and other activities that will help them grow into productive individuals. We need to have dedicated space to make this possible.

     

    The good news is, The Lord’s Pantry at Anna’s House has been gifted a large plot of land on which to build a new facility, one that will enable us to provide additional programs to adults and children. We are also blessed to have been gifted any and all concrete labor involved in erecting a new building as well as some other gifted materials and labor. The not-so-good news is there is still MUCH MORE to be secured before the dream of a larger facility, to help a community need, can become a reality.

     


     

    Anna’s House welcomes any and all who wish to shepherd in a new way of life for individuals and families in need. From significant volunteer opportunities every week at the Pantry to getting more involved in helping us raise critical funds and in-kind gifts, there is a place for you! You can learn more about these opportunities at AnnasHouseMSC.org or call the Director of Anna’s House (Julie Molloy) at 317.631.5504. Thank you.

     

    Community Partner Spotlight: Pack Away Hunger


    Monday, November 23, 2015

     


     

     

    When was the last time you and your friends put on some hairnets and had some fun? Never you say? According to one local non-profit, donning a hairnet and gathering with friends and co-workers is a great way to have a good time, and most importantly, to help others. Tucked away on the south side of Indianapolis sits Pack Away Hunger, a non-profit organization dedicated to greatly improving the lives of children and others who suffer from hunger and malnutrition.

     

    The lack of proper nutrition creates serious health and developmental consequences for individuals and has far reaching implications for communities. In the United States 15.8 million children do not have regular access to healthy meals (1). In developing countries one out of six children -- roughly 100 million -- is underweight, the result of acute or chronicmalnutrition (2).


    In a world with such vast resources, Pack Away Hunger thinks this is unacceptable. To achieve their mission, Pack Away Hunger set out to develop a highly nutritious meal that could be safely distributed to local food banks as well as developing countries. Working in collaboration with The Mathile Institute for Human Nutrition they developed The Nutri-Plenty® Meal. The Nutri-Plenty® Meal contains rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables, and most importantly M+ Micronutrients, a scientifically-proven blend of 21 vitamins and minerals shown to help alleviate and also reverse the effects of micronutrient malnutrition in young children. In short, the meal does much more than just fill hungry stomachs. It provides critical nutrition that helps fend off life-threatening conditions like anemia and diarrhea. The meal is easy to prepare, requiring only a cooking vessel, boiling water and a spoon. It has a long shelf life, making it ideal for food banks, and for the long journey to developing countries.

     


     

     

    Now back to those hairnets. Pack Away Hunger is not alone in their desire to help children and others suffering from hunger. Enter the army of donors and volunteers who make it possible to create and distribute Nutri-Plenty® Meals to those in need. Like-minded community organizations, businesses, churches and individuals make financial donations so Pack Away Hunger can purchase the raw materials needed for the meals. Then, the group comes together to create the meals at a “packing event”. The events are family friendly, powerful and fun. Participants feel a sense of purpose, knowing the meals they pack with their own hands will meet a significant need for someone in their neighborhood or in a community around the world.

    Making an impact. Since opening its doors in 2008, Pack Away Hunger has held more than 200 packing events and engaged more than 46,000 volunteers. Those events have created 10 Millionmeals for people in need, both near and far. Regular distribution to partner agencies in Haiti and Guatemala creates stability for children by allowing them to concentrate in school and in some cases simply survive the effects of malnutrition. Locally, the meals help families in Central Indiana by providing healthy food when they may not be able to make ends meet.

     


     

    Join the fun and feel good. Pack Away Hunger often holds packing events that are open to the public. This Thanksgiving, they held their 3rd Annual Pack Friday event, offering families an alternative to Black Friday shopping. Other events have included Pack to the Future and St. Packtrick’s Day. Visit PackAwayHunger.org to join an event today, and you will be on your way to providing Life.Changing.Nutrition.

    Save Your Tabs Collection Challenge


    Friday, October 30, 2015

     

     


     

     

    Fall is here...bringing us tailgating, bonfires, announcing the start to many of our holiday gatherings.  As we come together to celebrate with friends, family, and loved ones, Sun King challenges you to collect your tabs!

     

    Our fourth installment of the Sun King Collect Your Tabs Challenge, benefitting the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana, encourages fans of Fresh•Local•Beer to collect aluminum tabs, of all types.  We challenge you, your co-workers, family, and friends to collect as many aluminum tabs (beer, soda, energy drinks, canned water) as you can from October 30th, 2015 - January 9th, 2016.  All tabs will be turned in at Sun King Brewery on January 9th and those who have participated will be awarded various Sun King prizes.  All collected tabs will be dropped off to the Ronald McDonald House to be recycled.

     

    Why Should You Collect Can Tabs? 

     

    Not only is the can tab important for the purpose of opening your favorite "Pint in Every Can", it is also a valuable resource that generates much-needed funds to cover the operating costs to run the Ronald McDonald House to support families in need.  Don't forget to recycle your cans too - that is important for our environment!

     

    Fun Facts about Tabs: 

    • 1 lbs = 1,000 Tabs

    • 1,000 lbs = 1 Million Tabs 

     

    What does the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana do?

     

    Nearly 1,500 families are served at the House each year while their children receive life-saving treatments at Indianapolis-area hospitals, including Riley Children's Hosiptal.  Over one billion tabs have been donated in 15 years since the program began, generating about $500,000 in revenue.  The Ronald McDonald House focuses on those families with a critically ill or injured child.  The House is the only organization in Central Indiana that provides low-cost, short-term-to-long-term lodging for these families.  

     

    Fund received from the recycled tabs adds up to $30-$50K annually.  These funds go towards the operating costs of the Ronald McDonald House and will cover the costs of operating 3 rooms in the House for an entire year.

     

     

    How Can You Help?

     

    Help Sun King collect tabs by participating in the Save Your Tabs Challenge from October 30th, 2015 - January 9th, 2016.  Sun King will continue to collect tabs at various community events around town and on Saturday, January 9th, we ask that you stop by the brewery to drop off your collected tabs. We will weigh your tabs and reward you with prizes, and then we’ll deliver the collective bounty of tabs to the Ronald McDonald House where it will go to help those in need!

     

     

    Prizes are detailed below:

     

  • • 1 to 4.9 lbs: $5 Gift Card
  • • 5 to 9.9 lbs: $5 Gift Card and a SKB Pint Glass
