There's no beverage of moderation, only the practice of moderation.

Understanding Moderation

Part of responsible drinking is understanding that a standard drink of beer, distilled spirits and wine each contains the same amount of alcohol. It's not what you drink, it's how much that counts.

Distilled Spirits Council Applauds Indiana Legislature for Ending Sunday Alcohol Sales Ban

February 22, 2018 05:03 PM


The Distilled Spirits Council today applauded the Indiana legislature for voting to end a Prohibition-era ban on Sunday alcohol sales. Governor Eric Holcomb has indicated he will move to quickly sign the legislation, which would make Indiana the 41st state to allow Sunday sales.

“The Indiana legislature today voted to end one of the last remnants of Prohibition,” said Distilled Spirits Council Vice President Dale Szyndrowski. “Hoosiers want a modern marketplace that allows alcohol sales on Sunday – just like in neighboring states. It is important that shoppers be able to buy from local businesses and invest their tax dollars in Indiana, instead of making a trip across the border.”

According to an economic analysis, statewide Sunday sales of alcohol in Indiana could generate between $7.7 and $11.5 million in new tax revenues for the state. In addition, Sunday sales would increase Indiana sales volume by an estimated 4 to 6 percent annually, which translates to $ $5 million in new retail sales.

Last year, Minnesota and Oklahoma also voted to allow Sunday alcohol sales. Since 2002, 19 states have passed Sunday sales legislation bringing the total to 41 states across the country.
