INDIANAPOLIS (Inside INdiana Business) — Indiana’s second-largest brewery is partnering with Kokomo Brewing Company to reopen Tin Man Kokomo as a Sun King Tap Room & Brewery in July.
Owner Amanda Lewton will continue to manage overall business operations, but Sun King will take a minority ownership and will oversee the on-site brewing program and recipe development, along with supporting operational, marketing and logistical needs.
“We are very excited to align with Sun King who shares our values and focus on community,” said Lewton. They have always been a great resource within the industry and our team can’t wait to tap into their experience to create our own special Sun King beers called Kokomo Small Batch. We will make some cosmetic changes inside our taproom and look forward to this new journey and continuing to serve our loyal customers.”
Sun King says the downtown Kokomo location will be family and dog-friendly.
“Amanda and the team at Kokomo Brewing Company have created a great community and guest experience, and made some great beers over the years,” said Clay Robinson, founder of Sun King Brewery. “We are excited to invest in their growth and collaborate with their team to help create new beers and expand Sun King’s presence in Indiana.”
Sun King established its flagship brewery in downtown Indianapolis in 2009 and has since expanded to Fishers, Carmel and Broad Ripple.
