Indianapolis, Ind. – It was only five years ago on July 1st, 2009, that Sun King Brewing Company fired up our brew kettle and crafted our first batch of Fresh•Local•Beer, becoming the first full-scale production brewery in Indianapolis since 1948. In celebration of our fifth anniversary, Sun King will be hosting a party, aptly named SKB 5, on Saturday, June 28th, 2014 at the brewery. (135 N. College Ave., Indianapolis, Ind. 46202)
Sun King’s 5th Anniversary will feature live music, Indy’s best food trucks, and the release of our most anticipated seasonal beer Grapefruit Jungle I.P.A. The headliner for the evening’s festivities will be Nashville, Tennessee based band, The Wild Feathers (www.thewildfeathers.com), who were recently featured on ABC’s hit show “Nashville”. Their song “The Ceiling” is also featured on the WTTS Collector’s Edition and was recorded at Sun King Studio 92.
Grapefruit Jungle (GFJ) is a classic American I.P.A. that was devised by head brewer Dave Colt and showcases hops from the Pacific Northwest to create an intense citrus hop flavor explosion that is reminiscent of biting into a fresh grapefruit. For the second time, GFJ will be released in its very own 16 oz. can, as well, as on draft throughout Indiana.
“Grapefruit Jungle is the first beer that we ever made that sold out in a matter of days,” said Sun King Owner/Head Brewer Dave Colt, “so in response to its popularity, every year we make more and every year it sells out just as fast! The beer is a tribute to the birth of rock and roll, and since most of us at the brewery are hop-heads, it became the perfect choice for a special release party in celebration of our anniversary.”
Tickets are available now for $10 online (http://tinyurl.com/SKB5Party ) or at Sun King Brewery for a limited $5 ticket ($5 ticket promotion will run March 14th – March 15th). Tickets will be $15 day of show. The event will take place in the south parking lot of Sun King from 4:00 PM – 10:00 PM (EST). Event is for patrons 21 and over.
