Indianapolis, Ind. – 2014 kicks off with a new partnership between Broad Ripple’s seminal music venue, The Vogue, and Indianapolis’ best selling craft beer, Sun King Brewing Company. The Sun King Concert Series at the Vogue will feature over sixty concerts throughout the year and an incredible array of talented artists from across the country.
“The great thing about our partnership with Sun King, is that we are both independent locally owned businesses, doing whatever it takes to stay over-the-top and keep our customers satisfied! The Vogue is looking forward to an awesome partnership with Sun King! It’s a match made in beer & rock n’ roll heaven!” ~ Steve Ross owner of The Vogue.
The Vogue will now offer all three of Sun King’s House Beers (Sunlight Cream Ale, Wee Mac Scottish Ale, and Osiris Pale Ale) at every bar locations throughout the venue, giving concertgoers greater access to FreshÔÇóLocalÔÇóBeer.
“I’ve been going to concerts at The Vogue for nearly two decades and seen some incredible shows there, so it’s really exciting to have an opportunity to be a part of action.” said Sun King owner/brewer Clay Robinson. “Up until now, everyone had to go upstairs to get a craft beer at The Vogue’s specialty bar, but now everyone will be able to get a Sun King beer without having to make the trek!!”
The Sun King Concert Series will feature numerous nationally touring acts including; Neko Case, Mayor Hawthrone, Yonder Mountain String Band, and many local acts. Local promoters, as well as former Vogue Talent Manager, Matt Schwegman, who is now with Live Nation, have put the series together. New signature events are in development as The Sun King Concert Series at the Vogue sensation continues to take shape, including events that will have a charity/not-for-profit focus.
