(STATEWIDE) - New alcohol laws go into effect July 1.

First, farm wineries are now allowed to refill growlers. State law prohibited a retailer from refilling containers with alcoholic products unless that retailer held a small brewer's permit. That will change July 1, when farm wineries will officially be added as an exception for refilling containers.

Second, Artisan distilleries will now be allowed to sell their products (vodka, rum, gin, whiskey, etc.) for carry-out on Sundays, a privilege breweries and wineries already have. Wineries were granted permission to sell on Sundays in the early 1980s and breweries in 2010.

Third, another law going into effect will allow the Department of Natural Resources to apply for a three-way alcohol permit for a state park, bypassing approval from a county's alcoholic beverage board. The bill passed, possibly opening the door for alcohol sales at Indiana Dunes and other state parks.
