Beer Quotes & Wisdom

You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline-it

helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear

weapons, but at the very least you need a beer. -- Frank Zappa

Why does the Indiana Statehouse hate beer?

For every step forward Indiana takes when it comes to developing craft brewing, it seems like we end up taking two steps backward. The past couple years have seen an explosion in craft brewing operations in the state.

I just saw this article at The Full Pint about two of the most popular breweries in Indiana, Three Floyds and Sun King.

There is state law that says brewer cannot operate a tasting room, brew pub, or self-distribute its product if it produces more than 20,000 barrels (approximately 40,000 kegs) a year.

Three Floyds is on pace to hit that number this year. Sun King is on pace to hit that number in 2013. To inform the public about the issue, the breweries are collaborating on a a pale ale to be debuted in April.
