“Indiana is the only one where you can’t buy packaged beer, wine and liquor on Sundays.”


Wrong.

In fact, even reporters based in Indiana invariably miss a key point: You most certainly can get cold beer to go on Sunday in Indiana … from the state’s 65+ small craft breweries. The first day for such sales was July 4, 2010.

Indiana’s small wineries have been able to sell their wine to go on Sunday for many years, too.

Guess Who’s Fighting To Keep Indiana Dry On Sundays?, by Sara Wittmeyer (NPR)

When you think summer, you might think of cold beer at a barbecue, maybe a bottle of wine with a Sunday picnic. A lot of people take it for granted that they can just go to the store and pick up alcohol.

Not in Indiana.

While many states have laws restricting liquor sales, Indiana is the only one where you can’t buy packaged beer, wine and liquor on Sundays, and it’s the only state that regulates alcohol sales based on temperature. Only liquor stores can sell cold beer.
