Beer. People. Community.
The three pillars that Sun King was founded on even before the first keg was rolled out of our Indianapolis brewery in 2009. A decade later, the community continues to play a fundamental role in who Sun King is and how we operate – because Sun King is dedicated to enriching the lives of Hoosiers, one beer at a time.
In 2018, we worked with over 500 nonprofits throughout central Indiana and beyond donating beer, time, fundraised dollars, and more; altogether creating a $1.1 million economic impact on our community. While we’re proud of what we’ve accomplished, we couldn’t have done it without our amazing nonprofits - join us in raising a glass to the organizations who make our communities a better place to live, work, and play.
The four main focuses at Sun King Brewery
ARTS, CULTURE, & HUMANITIES
NATURE, RECREATION, & CONSERVATION
What we do:
While developing and maintaining relationships with Hoosier nonprofits, we have implemented creative ways to give back to the community. We donate beer to public or private events to help our partners alleviate their costs, and/or to help them raise funds of their own. We host our partners in our taprooms and donate $1 back per pint sold while utilizing the space. We also donate gift packs to help enhance silent auction/ fundraising efforts. Interested? Check the requirements below.
- Your organization must be a registered 501(c)3.
- Your request must be AT LEAST 30 days prior to your event.
- We prefer to work directly with someone from your nonprofit organization.
- Beer requests only – you have obtained or are obtaining an alcohol permit for the event.

Beer Donation Request
Sun King loves to give back to the community through beer donations. In 2018, we donated 168,264 cans of beer to nonprofit events – if you lined each beer from top to bottom, you could lap the Indianapolis Motor Speedway almost seven times!
Our beer donations have allowed our partners to alleviate the costs of beverages for large fundraisers as well as raising funds at smaller ones. For example, at a dodgeball tournament that one of our partners host, each player receives a ticket for one complimentary beverage and then charges participants for any following libations. Our goal is to help you fund-raise AND friend-raise! In order for us to donate, there are a few requirements:
Request Donation Item
Sun King loves to give back to the community through gift packs/auction items. In 2018, we donated over 500 items that our partners used to turn into funds that ultimately enhanced their missions. *Please note that all gift packs must be picked up from our downtown location and we do not have the capability to mail items.
Request Community Giving Taproom Space
Sun King loves the opportunity to give back to the community through our Community Giving programming. We host our nonprofit partners Monday-Wednesday in our downtown and Fishers taprooms free of charge through Community Giving, and, while programming in our taproom, community partners earn $1 back from every pint sold. From January to June 2019, we raised over $4,500 through Community Giving programs – a fun and easy way to fund-raise and friend-raise!
Our space fills up quite fast - therefore we request that your application be submitted at least a month out for your desired taproom programming event.
