IBJ Podcast: How Sun King came through the pandemic in better shape than it entered


When the pandemic hit one year ago, Sun King almost immediately lost some 40% of its business, the result of restaurants and bars that shuttered and stopped buying beer in kegs.

It would have been a catastrophe had canned beer sales not picked up fairly quickly, leaving Sun King and other breweries to scramble to shift work. An eventual can shortage caused more problems.

But Sun King co-founder Clay Robinson tells podcast host Mason King how the company and its employees adapted to put the company in better position now than it was before the pandemic.

  1. Thats sad they bailed out people who were tearing our city apart. They totally supported other people’s business being torn apart in the city. I know several bar and restaurants that will not serve the product because of this.
    I bet if their business had be vandalized it been a different story.
