As bars and breweries stock up for New Year‘s Eve, some will use an app from a Carmel company to make sure they‘re not tapped out.   

Because you can‘t see into a beer keg, SteadyServ CEO Steve Hershberger says bars can’t tell when they‘re running low, and brewers don’t know which beers are selling fastest. He says most bars just guess.

Indiana State Excise Police will be on the lookout for alcohol-related offenses as college students return to campus for the fall semester.

Corporal Travis Thickstun says they want to remind students to not make poor choices when it comes to alcohol.

"There are a number of laws like minor consumption, public intoxication, furnishing alcohol to minors (and) possession of false ID‘s that we‘re really going to be zeroing in on over the next couple weeks as students return to campus."

About 40 Indiana craft brewers and wineries will be the first to serve alcohol at the State Fair in nearly 70 years.

The fair began accepting applications for the new wine and beer garden in the fairgrounds‘ Grand Hall last month, three months after legislators lifted a longstanding ban on alcohol at the fair.

Spokesman Andy Klotz says the fair received interest from all across the state in occupying the newly-authorized wine and beer garden in the fairgrounds‘ Grand Hall.

He says the lineup will vary from day to day.
