Background: With an impressive and growing list of more than a dozen independent craft breweries, wineries and distilleries, the City of Carmel launched the Brews & Barrels Trail to help visitors and residents find unique and crafty takes on their favorite adult beverages. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and crowd restrictions, we have not been able to celebrate an actual event until now. From Sun King Spirits to Danny Boy Beer Works, Peace Water Winery to Sugar Creek Winery, there are currently 12 establishments in Carmel’s 50 square miles that create craft beers, distilled spirits or their own wines. While there are many more fine pubs and restaurants serving great adult beverages, only those who create their own products are included on the Trail. The list continues to grow with the popularity of independent brewing and opportunities here in Carmel.
