A bill that includes provisions to raise the production cap on small Indiana breweries is moving forward. The House Public Policy Committee has approved HB 1311, which would boost the limit to 90,000 barrels per year. Production is currently capped at 30,000 barrels.
It also involves provisions for small breweries to sell at farmer's markets and minimum food requirements for brewers that sell beer by the glass.
