Brewery in Operation Membership

If your brewery was a Brewery in Operation member of the Guild in 2017, you may renew your membership here.

The Brewers of Indiana Guild is the 501(c)(6) nonprofit trade association that represents Indiana craft breweries.

The objectives of the Guild are to:

  • promote the highest standards of professional brewing in Indiana;
  • to increase public awareness and appreciation for the variety and quality of Indiana craft beer;
  • to advocate for state and federal laws that promote Guild members’ ideals and that foster brewery profitability;
  • and to provide a forum for discussion, support and initiative for the common good of Indiana’s brewing industry.

IF YOUR BREWERY IS FULLY PERMITTED AND SELLING YOUR BEER and meets the requirements below, you may join as a Brewer in Operation member to receive full benefits including support and information from the Guild about festivals, legislative and marketing efforts, and more.

See the list of benefits and the membership dues schedule here.

IF YOUR BREWERY IS IN PLANNING, please see this page for more info.

Per the Guild Bylaws, Indiana craft breweries that meet the following conditions may join the Brewers of Indiana Guild:

  1. The brewery holds a valid and active “Small Brewer” permit issued by the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission;
  2. The brewery qualifies as a “craft brewery” as defined by the Brewers Association;
  3. The brewery is actively brewing;
  4. All critical phases of the beer making process occur within the state of Indiana;
  5. The brewery is actively engaged in the business of making and selling beer at its permit premise.

If your brewery has more than one location, each location that meets all of the above conditions and is actively brewing onsite qualifies as a Guild member with full privileges (one vote per brewery), and annual member dues will be based on aggregate barrelage amongst all locations.

Once you’ve confirmed the above, you may apply for membership and pay 2018 dues here, then upload your print-quality logo to Dropbox.
