The alcohol laws of Indiana are unique in that Indiana is the only remaining U.S. state to ban all Sunday alcohol sales outside of bars and restaurants.

Effective July 4, 2010 beer sold in microbreweries may be sold on Sundays pursuant to Senate Bill 75. The sales must take place where the brewing is done. The sales limit is two (2) cases per person, or 576 ounces.

In Indiana, alcohol may be sold only to those over 21 years of age during the hours 7 a.m. to 3 a.m. Alcoholic beverages may also not be served or sold from 3 a.m. Christmas Day until 7 a.m. December 26th.

Establishments that sell beverages by the "drink" must have food service for 25 (at a minimum, hot soups, hot sandwiches, coffee, milk, and soft drinks) available at all times. It is unlawful for establishments to provide discounts on alcohol to certain customers or at certain times of day (e.g., during "happy hour") that are not available to everyone. [1]

Indiana is not an alcoholic beverage control state.

Public intoxication is a class B misdemeanor in Indiana.
