IBJ: Pacers, Sun King teaming up for Tip-Off Ale

Sun King Brewing Co. gives us another reason to celebrate the start of the NBA season, not to mention a new brew to help celebrate!

Here's to our friends at Sun King Brewing and the Indiana Pacers for expanding their partnership to deliver a new beer for the start of the Pacers and NBA season.

Anthony Schoetle reports on the details of Sun King's Tip-Off Ale complete with a killer can design which incorporates basketball and the Pacers color scheme.

Tip-Off came about through conversations between Sun King and Pacers officials earlier this year.

"We've been a sponsor of the Pacers for four years and we've made beers in association with other teams and organizations and thought with the rich basketball heritage here, it would be a perfect match," said Sun King spokeswoman Elizabeth Belange. "Sun King's five co-owners are really big sports fans, and this is something they really wanted to do."

Fans will be able to buy Tip-Off Ale at the Fieldhouse along with finding it at Sun King's downtown brewery and the Sunk King Tap Room and Small-Batch Brewery in Fishers.

The Pacers and Sun King will also team up for an opening night party from 5-7 p.m. on the east end of George Street outside the Fieldhouse on Thursday night.

Check out these cans! I think the logo demands a t-shirt.
