INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Gen Con 2015 is a little over a week away and Sun King is brewing up this year’s official beer for the festivities.

The name of the beer is called “Drink on and Prosper,” which is described as a Blonde Ale with brown sugar and caramelized dark fruit flavors. The name of the beer was picked from this year’s online naming contest.

During the kick off party an aged version of Froth of Khan will be featured. The party starts at 6 p.m. on Georgia Street. Gen Con starts July 30 and goes till Aug. 2.
