Drink Indiana Beer | Great Beer, Made Here
Did you know that there are more than 100 craft breweries in Indiana? Or that nearly 8,000 full time employees in Indiana’s craft brewing industry create an economic impact of more than $1 billion?
Brewing in Indiana is a big deal. When you visit an Indiana brewery, buy Indiana beer instead of a national or imported brand, and attend Brewers of Indiana Guild events, you’re supporting small, local businesses that create some of the finest craft beer in the world.
About Brewers of Indiana Guild
Organized in 2000, Brewers of Indiana Guild is the non-profit trade association that provides a unifying voice for the craft breweries and brewpubs of Indiana.
We promote public awareness and appreciation for the award-winning quality and variety of beer produced in Indiana, advocate for favorable regulatory treatment from state and federal agencies, provide support to brewers throughout the state, and, along with Indianapolis City Market, co-own Tomlinson Tap Room, where you’ll find only Indiana beers all the time.
Since Indiana’s oldest brewery, Broad Ripple Brewpub, opened its doors in 1990, the number of Indiana breweries has increased dramatically. Our brewers bring home medals from the most prestigious competitions in the United States, like the Brewers Association‘s Great American Beer Festival and the World Beer Cup.
We encourage you to drink responsibly and drive only when sober.
The objectives of the Brewers of Indiana Guild are to:
- promote the highest standards of professional brewing in Indiana
- increase public awareness and appreciation for the variety and quality of Indiana craft beer
- advocate for state and federal laws that promote Guild Members’ ideals and that foster brewery profitability
- provide a forum for discussion, support and initiatives for the common good of Indiana’s brewing industry
Indiana craft breweries who meet the following conditions can opt into membership in the Brewers of Indiana Guild*:
- The brewery holds a valid and active “Small Brewer” permit issued by the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission;
- The brewery qualifies as a “craft brewery” as defined by the Brewers Association;
- The brewery is actively brewing;
- All critical phases of the beer making process occur within the state of Indiana;
- The brewery is actively engaged in the business of making and selling beer at its permit premise.
Breweries with more than one location that meet the above conditions and actively brew onsite qualify as Guild members with full voting privileges, one vote per brewery.
If your company doesn’t qualify as a Guild member but would like to support the Guild’s mission, sign up for our newsletter or contact us for more information about our upcoming non-brewery Affiliate Membership program and event sponsorship opportunities.
*Our map of Indiana breweries includes only those breweries who have opted into Guild membership. Additionally, some breweries have production locations aside from brewpubs/taprooms which are closed to the public and therefore not listed on the map.
