Sun King CANvitational
3rd Annual Sun King CANvitational
September 12
The Sun King CANvitational will be held in Indianapolis on September 12th. This annual beer festival showcases over 45 breweries that specialize in canning their beer. Canning beer is advantageous because aluminum is impervious to oxygen and UV light; forces that chip away at the freshness of the beer. Also, in practice, consumers are more likely to recycle aluminum cans than glass bottles. This theoretically makes canned beer more environmentally friendly than their bottled counterparts. With so many reasons to love canned beer, spend some time at the Sun King CANvitational in Indianapolis this September and go beer tasting, listen to good music, and eat delicious food.
With summer coming to a close, and the days getting shorter, make the most out of every minute in Indianapolis. Drag races, as well as beer and food fests will be sure to keep you busy, and will give you just the right amount of R&R before fall sets in.
