Growing developments in downtown Mishawaka


MISHAWAKA, Ind. (WNDU) – Move over Princes Mishawka – the “king” comes to town.

Next summer, Indy-based Sun King Brewery will open a tap room in Mishawaka.

Sun King will be located on the ground floor of the riverside building known as The Mill.

“All our faucet rooms are suitable for families. I’m in one right now, so I can see over my shoulder that we have brasserie-style seating, ”Sun King’s Clay Robinson told 16 News Now in a Zoom interview.

The Mishawaka location will be Sun King’s sixth location in Indiana. It will be the smallest town in which the brewery operates.

“It’s a gem, it’s a really, really great area and they continue to develop and grow,” said Robinson. “There’s a, you know, a convention and event space going up there.

Mishawaka beat the proposed sites in South Bend and Fort Wayne.

The company will invest in downtown Mishawaka, where the city has done the same, from the $ 20 million event space and ice rink at Beutter Park, to the $ 20 million reconstruction to transform the old Liberty Mutual building in new town hall.

The Mishawaka Sun King menu will feature Cholita’s One Trick Pony burgers and tacos.

The site is located near the river and will have an outdoor part.

“They have a farmer’s market there every week and there is concerts, and there are all kinds of things, so the foot traffic and the attractiveness of the area will bring more people to our doors.”

Mishawaka seems to have momentum when it comes to downtown development.

In the 100 block of S. Main Street alone, three storefronts are being turned over. The Mishawaka History Museum will be located at 121 S. Main. Dojo Creative, a web design company, plans to move to 119 W. Main, while Vinyl Tap and Table restaurant is renovating space at 117 S. Main.
