Yes, we live less than an hour away and have never visited. So, today was the day to visit. Very neat place to see all the big brewing vats and taste some interesting brews. Nice outside seating area also.

I came here with a buddy to sample the various beers. The room was full of different board games, including Nintendo etc. We had a great time and the beer was delicious and memorable.

What a fun place. Super friendly staff. Obviously not a great place for kids but they survived. Bring your lunch have a seat and drink a great beer.

We enjoy the relaxed atmosphere at Sun King. They have Jenga and several other games you can take to your table. They’ve recently added food items that are delicious!!! Our favorite brews are Osiris and Wee Mac.
