Breweries in Indiana produce a wide range of beers in different styles that are marketed locally, regionally, and nationally. Brewing companies vary widely in the volume and variety of beer produced, from small nanobreweries and microbreweries to massive multinational conglomerate macrobreweries.

In 2012 Indiana's 68 breweries and brewpubs employed 260 people directly, and more than 23,000 others in related jobs such as wholesaling and retailing.[1][2] Including people directly employed in brewing, as well as those who supply Indiana's breweries with everything from ingredients to machinery, the total business and personal tax revenue generated by Indiana's breweries and related industries was more than $456 million.[3] Consumer purchases of Indiana's brewery products generated almost $192 million extra in tax revenue.[4] In 2012, according to the Brewers Association, Indiana ranked 22nd in the number of craft breweries per capita with 54.[5]

For context, at the end of 2013 there were 2,822 breweries in the United States, including 2,768 craft breweries subdivided into 1,237 brewpubs, 1,412 microbreweries and 119 regional craft breweries.[6] In that same year, according to the Beer Institute, the brewing industry employed around 2 million Americans in the brewing industry (brewing, distribution and retail) and had a combined economic impact of more than $246 billion.[7]
