INDIANAPOLIS — Sun King is closing its tap room in Broad Ripple. The business will close its doors for good at the end of business on Dec. 19.
In a statement to 13News, the brewery said the lease being up, rent increasing, street closures and “many safety concerns we’ve encountered” factored into the decision.
“Safety has been a concern over the last several months. We’ve experienced loitering in our parking lot with people setting up “tailgate” like parties. This led to our staff and our patrons to feel uncomfortable, and they were also getting harassed by the partygoers. We had to restructure our hours of operation to close earlier in the evening because of this. Also, the parking lot often was used by non-paying customers walking into Broad Ripple.”
