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.

Learn more about why it’s important to buy local here, and look for the Drink Indiana Beer seal when shopping so you know that you’re supporting a member brewery.

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; 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.

Brewers of Indiana Guild is the driving force behind the Drink Indiana Beer public awareness campaign which strives to support Indiana’s craft breweries in a variety of ways, including Drink Indiana Beer gear and more.

We encourage you to drink responsibly and drive only when sober.

Our Mission

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

Our Membership

Indiana craft breweries who meet the following conditions may join the Brewers of Indiana Guild*:

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 the non-brewery Affiliate Membership program, the Brewery in Planning membership level, or event sponsorship opportunities.

*Our map of Indiana breweries includes only those breweries who have chosen to support their industry by becoming Guild members. Additionally, some breweries have production locations beyond their brewpubs and taprooms which are closed to the public and therefore not listed on the map.
