If bourbon is labeled as a bourbon and is higher than 125 proof or under 80 proof then it doesn't meet the requirements laid out by the TTB, Then it is in a SPECIALTY BOURBON Classification and can still use the name Bourbon.

  • What is a brewery tasting room
    A tasting room is a key component of many craft breweries and provides a unique and immersive experience for beer enthusiasts. Here are some primary features and elements that you will find in our tasting room: 1. Beer Sampling: The core activity in this tasting room is offering guests the opportunity to sample a variety of beers. This is often done through a "Flight" of Beer, which consists of smaller glasses (usually 5 ounces) of different beers. This allows you to taste a range of brews and discover your preferences. 2. On-Site Consumption: Guests can order pints of beer to enjoy on-site. This provides a comfortable environment for socializing, enjoying the beer. 3. Retail Sales: Our tasting room also allow guests to purchase beer to take home. This can include cans, growlers, or Howlers to be filled with the beer of your choice. NOTE: If you bring in a howler or growler we will fill them for you. 4. Owner Interaction: It's not uncommon for My wife and i to be present in the tasting room. Our presence allows for a personal touch, giving our guests the opportunity to engage with the people behind our brand.

  • Are Children Allowed?
    All ages are allowed at our brewery. lease read the law on this topic. Effective July 1, 2023, Indiana law now permits all minors under the age of twenty-one (21) to be present in a bar area so long as: 1) the minor is accompanied by a parent, guardian, or other family member that is at least twenty-one (21) years old; 2) the purpose for being on the licensed premises is the consumption of food prepared on the licensed premises; and 3) the minor is seated at a table or booth in the bar area. What has changed? What hasn’t changed? Indiana Code § 7.1-5-7-11(b) previously permitted minors between the ages of eighteen (18) and twenty (20) to be seated at a table or booth in a bar area for dining purposes if accompanied by a parent, guardian, or family member who is at least twenty-one (21) years old. Under the new law (HEA 1200), all minors—including those under the age of eighteen (18)—are now able to be seated in a bar area if the above conditions are met. Minors must still be seated at a table or booth for the purpose of consuming food while accompanied by a parent, guardian, or other family member who is at least twenty-one (21) years old. Similarly, minors are still prohibited from standing or loitering in a bar area and may not be seated at a bar top over which alcoholic beverages are sold or dispensed. Does this change impact who is able to serve patrons in a bar area? No. The change allowing minors in bar areas under certain circumstances does not have any effect on alcoholic beverage serving requirements. Servers that have obtained a restricted employee permit and are at least nineteen (19) years old but less than twenty-one (21) years old may only serve alcoholic beverages in a dining area while under the supervision of another employee who is at least twenty-one (21) years of age pursuant to IC 7.1-5-7-13. In order to serve patrons in a bar, tavern, or bar area, an employee must be at least twenty-one (21) years old and have a valid employee permit issued by the ATC. Are permittees required to seat minors in the bar area upon request if they meet the requirements? No. The purpose of the change in law is to allow retail establishments with dining and bar areas more flexibility, not less. As such, retail permittees may choose whether or not to allow minors in the bar area. Does this change have any impact on bars and taverns that allow smoking under a smoking ban exception? No. Bars and taverns that allow smoking are still prohibited from allowing patrons under the age of twenty-one (21) on the premises. Does this change have any impact on type II gaming operations? No. IC 4-36-5-2(b) provides that type II gambling games “may not be offered in any part of [a] licensed premises in which a minor may be present under IC 7.1-5-7-11(a)(16).” As such, if a retail permittee has type II gaming located in a bar area, the permittee must choose between offering type II gaming operations in the bar area or permitting minors in the bar area—it cannot allow both.
