Broadway in Indianapolis and Sun King Brewery announce the creation of “Cara Mia,” a Sun King seasonal beer, in conjunction with the arrival of “The Addams Family” in Indianapolis.
The kegs will be tapped from 6 to 8 p.m. April 23 at The Glossbrenner Mansion, 3202 N. Meridian St., Indianapolis, and will include guided tours and a performance by the production’s own Jennifer Fogarty (Wednesday Addams). Tickets are $20, benefiting Indiana Landmarks, and available via the website at http://tinyurl.com/SpookyKookyAffair. All guests must be 21 and present their ID at the event.
“Cara Mia,” meaning “my darling,” represents the passionate love between Gomez and Morticia Addams and is brewed with a Belgium Wit base that has the essence of roses, hibiscus and orange zest. The orange inclusion is to be reflecting the area of Spain that Gomez is from and the floral/rose notes are what is left over from when Morticia arranges flowers.
“Cara Mia” is the third brew created for a touring Broadway in Indianapolis production. The partnership’s inaugural “Million Dollar Brewski” was created in 2011 for the engagement of “Million Dollar Quartet.” In 2013, “American Idiot IPA” was labeled to celebrate the raucous, in-your-face production of “American Idiot.”
“The Addams Family” features an original story and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family — a man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, she confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before: keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.
