The 2017 IN Beer Brigade Collaboration:
Sun King, Central Indiana Breweries, and Stuck in the Middle S’mores-Inspired Imperial Stout

What is Sun King Brewing Company when they hosted Central Indiana brewers for the second annual Indiana Beer Brigade collaboration? Stuck in the Middle.

Inspired by the taste sensations of s’mores, this Indiana Imperial Stout brewed for IN Beer Brigadiers was sweet and smooth thanks to lactose sugar and chocolate malt, with a hint of barrel-stave smoked barley from Sugar Creek Malt Co. Pour the can and get roasty and toasty with this big, bold beer.

2017 IN Beer Brigadiers received four 16 oz. cans for complimentary carryout from the can release event of their choice, along with specially paired glassware.
