Sun King special tapping (and can) at Gospel Bird on Thursday, June 2.

Gospel Bird (Main Street) is teaming with Sun King Brewing Company to add a second event to the lineup for New Albany Craft Beer Week.

When Gospel Bird opens for dinner service at 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 2, Sun King's representative Julius Gagne will be on hand to give away an undisclosed number of Fest of Ale tickets and tap three Sun King drafts. Also, a special selection from the Sun King seasonal series will be available in cans.

Here they are:


Sunlight Cream Ale
ABV: 5.3% IBU: 20
Sunlight Cream Ale celebrates American brewing tradition by balancing smooth malt complexity with a crisp, clean finish. Sunlight was the winner of the Gold Medal in the Golden or Blonde Ale category at the 2015 Great American Beer Festival®, and the Silver Medal at the 2010 World Beer Cup in the Golden or Blonde Ale category.

Fistful Of Hops "Green" Seasonal IPA
ABV: 6.4% IBU: 75
Fistful of Hops is our quarterly IPA series, where we balance an ever-changing "Fistful of Hops" - a new variety for every season - against a consistent malt base. Our Spring 2016 release features Centennial, Mosaic, and El Dorado hops, for balanced citrus and tropical fruit flavor.

Hot Rod Lincoln Bourbon Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout (King's Reserve Series)
ABV: 10.0%
IBU: 70
Hot Rod Lincoln integrates the gingerbread and dark brown sugar flavors of our Timmie Russian-Style Imperial Stout with flavors of tart cherry, dark chocolate, and oak.


Alrye'd Alrye'd Alrye'd Imperial Session Rye IPA
ABV: 6.5% IBU: 64
Alrye'd Alrye'd Alrye'd is a Rye IPA brewed with Crystal hops from Michigan for a pronounced dankness, citrusy bright character, and an agreeable spiciness that plays well with its rye malt base.
