Sun King Brewing, who’s often tapped as brewing “Indiana’s Beer”, had been incubating on the idea of a destination distillery and tap room since their early days, but were waiting for the right time and place to present itself. When development in one of the fastest growing cities in the state began to emerge, they knew Midtown Carmel was their place.
Sun King in partnership with Old Town Design group teamed up with DELV to create an environment where people would gather and connect; one that would elevate the brand experience without losing the soul that their fans have come to know and love.
The result: a bustling intersection of work and play. Open to adults and families, day and night, the distillery’s design, encourages lingering and allows for a seamless flow indoors to outdoors. Steel and wood materials pay homage to site’s contextual history along the Monon Railway and Sun King’s industrial-chic vibe, even recycling materials from the distilling process itself. Connecting patrons further, the design gives visual peaks into the craftsmanship behind the spirits they sip.
