Indiana History of Brewing Event April 23

(INDIANAPOLIS) – The Indiana State Library Foundation and Sun King Brewery are pleased to announce “Indiana History of Brewing,” a look at the storied history of beer production in the Hoosier state. The event will take place on Thursday, April 23 from 4-7 p.m. in the Great Hall of the Indiana State Library in downtown Indianapolis. 

Since the mid-1800s, Hoosier contributions to brewing have significantly impacted the industry. The Indiana State Library Foundation invites the community to celebrate the state’s robust brewing history and to learn how the Indianapolis Brewing Company earned worldwide recognition in places like Paris and Liège, Belgium with their European-influenced beers. 

Registration for “Indiana History of Brewing” is $30 per person and includes six Sun King beer tastings, a commemorative pint glass, catered appetizers, live music, a tour of the Indiana State Library and a question-and-answer session with a Sun King staff member and Indiana State Library historians. The event is co-sponsored by Huntington Bank, EBSCO and Merrill Lynch. Proceeds will fund the Indiana State Library Foundation. The foundation supports the Indiana State Library in fulfilling its mission of serving Indiana residents, leading and supporting the library community and preserving Indiana history. Attendees must be 21 or over to sample the beer, but the event is open to all ages.
