Big Lug Canteen
Big Lug says "Every workout on the Monon has 3 stages. The start, the turnaround, and the finish. Big Lug supports all 3 phases. Start off with a parking spot and a marker for your distance, turnaround with the joy of knowing Big Lug awaits, and finish with a cold beer poured at our Monon adjacent concession stand."

Sun King Brewery
2 locations. Always fresh local beer. Always the best advice when caring for your growler: When you've emptied your growler, rinse it with warm water and give it a full air dry. Tell it you love it at least once a week and protect it with a Sun King growler coozie and it will love you in return.
