Bill in Indiana Legislature could ease restrictions on wineries, distilleries

February 11, 2019

House Bill 1422, which is authored by New Albany Republican Ed Clere, would change some distribution restrictions to better align with what breweries are already allowed to do. Breweries are already allowed to have what's known as a continuous flow, meaning beer can travel directly from the production facility to the restaurant either through a tap or in bottles. The bill would also addresses the rules for wineries and distilleries at farmers markets. Wineries, which are already allowed to sell by the bottle at farmers markets, would now have permission to give samples without needing to obtain a special permit.
