Sun King and other small Indiana breweries are a step closer to being allowed to make more beer.

The House Public Policy Committee passed a bill from Rep. Ed Clere (R-New Albany) that would allow craft beer brewers to triple the amount of beer they can make and sell within the state each year.   

Right now, the limit is 30,000 barrels - if a brewery makes more, it has to obtain a different permit and is no longer allowed to distribute its own beer.

Indiana law regulates how much beer Indiana’s small brewers can make each year and sell in state. The current limit is 30 thousand barrels.

Most businesses aren’t even close to that. But Sun King Brewery out of Indianapolis and Munster’s 3 Floyds Brewing Company are both near that mark.

Sun King co-founder Dave Colt says if the legislature doesn’t raise the ceiling, Sun King will be forced to make difficult decisions.
