FISHERS, Ind. - Craft beer maker Sun King Brewing Co. is planning to build a second production facility and tasting room in central Indiana.
The Fishers Town Council unanimously approved the $2.5 million economic development deal with Sun King on Monday evening.
Sun King announced Monday it would spend about $9 million for the new brewery near Interstate 69 in the northern Indianapolis suburb of Fishers. The company will keep open its current brewery in downtown Indianapolis.
"Sun King embodies the vibrant, entrepreneurial spirit that Fishers fosters throughout the community," said Town Manager Scott Fadness. "The expansion into Fishers not only creates a new destination for our community, but also aligns with our mission to create an environment in which high-growth, high-potential companies compete and thrive."
The new brewery will be built to accommodate future growth and the tasting room will be large enough to hold hundreds of people.
A biking and running path will be installed to connect 106th Street to the new brewery to enhance Fishers' trail system and provide easier access to Sun King.
"We are excited that once again Sun King Brewery has chosen Indiana as a fixture in its long-term business plans," said Eric Doden, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation. "We have worked hard to create an environment that promotes growth and creates more opportunities for Hoosiers, and we look forward to continuing to watch them expand here in the future."
The new brewery is expected to open next summer.
