Drink Indiana Beer
Great Beer, Made Here
Did you know that more than 170 craft breweries call Indiana home? 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 501(c)(6) 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 through a variety of efforts–including the annual Indiana Craft Brewers Conference, regional meetings, and other educational and networking opportunities.
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 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 breweries and associated businesses
Indiana craft breweries who meet the following conditions may join 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.
