The fact that the top breweries in this categories are all excellent coupled with Sun King’s first place finish (by a wide margin) speaks to Indy’s love affair with the brand of beer that’s become nearly synonymous with the city. Sun King’s everywhere, and there’s a reason for their saturation in the Circle City: they make excellent beer. Start with the three regular offerings: Sunlight Cream Ale, Wee Mac Scottish and Osiris Pale Ale, mix in all their seasonal and specialty brews, package ‘em in distinctively-logo’d growlers and environmentally-and-IMS-friendly cans, and you’ve got one heck of an award-winning brewing dynasty. Hit their tasting room or buy the stuff at nearly any bar or liquor store. Congrats – again.
