Blackout at the Biergarten

April 8 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join us at the Biergarten for an unforgettable Great American Eclipse party! Enjoy live music, food, and drinks as we gather under the open sky and toast this celestial event of a lifetime with a special beer crafted by Sun King Brewery, The Path of Totality.

On Monday, April 8, 2024, a total solar eclipse will cross North America, passing over Mexico, the United States, and Canada. At 3:06 PM the moon’s shadow will fall over Indianapolis for just under 4 minutes during the Great American Eclipse. This is truly a breath-taking sight you won’t want to miss–spend the day with us to see the Sun’s corona, while you stand in the shadow of the moon!

General Admission tickets include your own pair of eclipse glasses and a commemorative beer glass. All ages are welcome, student tickets also include a pair of eclipse glasses. Limited tickets are available, so secure your spot now for an afternoon filled with cosmic wonders, great company, and memories that transcend the ordinary. Let’s Eclipse together!
