So I figure I will be the lone guy who shows up just after 10 on a Friday to try some beer, because, you know, I'm a freak and all. Apparently not.

I pull up and as I try to park, I see maybe a dozen people with growlers walking out to their cars. It's 10:15! I almost ran over a guy. Not kidding. I get inside and this spot is way made up. There are at least 8 employees working the taps. This place is built for maximized profits, and I can only assume they are raking it in.

I personally found the selection rather thin, to be honest. 3 year-round beers and 4 seasonals? That's it? And the seasonal I tried was very unimpressive. A staff member told me that no single beers were available in stores because of archaic liquor laws. Apparently this wasn't the case because I did find singles available at spots I hit up later on. I think she was just trying to get me to purchase beer there. (They have 4-packs available in the coolers.)

It's a really nice looking spot, maxed out with all the merch you could ever want to buy and the view of all the tanks is certainly impressive. I just wish the substance matched the style here a bit more.

Kind of touristy. Wasn't feeling it, but their cream ale is fantastic.

What an awesome place. Stopped in today and they were giving away free sample tickets to the first few people through the door. Staff was very friendly and attentive. The brewery was beautiful and very clean. Lots of space to walk around with a few standing tables to drink at. Overall just thouroughly impressed with sun king and will definently stop back on my next trip to indy.
