The Brewers of Indiana Guild (B.I.G.) was organized to provide a unifying voice for the microbrewers and brewpubs of Indiana. Its goal is to promote public awareness and appreciation for the quality and variety of beer produced in Indiana. The Guild represents every brewery in Indiana.
Through economic development, academic research, and educational programs, the Guild brings benefits to a much larger community than just its members. B.I.G. also works closely with local farmers, grocers, and restaurants to promote locally grown produce, meats, dairy and other products, as well as with the arts community to showcase Indianaâ€™s extremely talented performing artists.
The Brewers Guild of Indiana is a driving force behind the "Drink Indiana" public awareness campaign which strives to support the local breweries and encourage patronage of local brew pubs. And remember, craft beer is a lot like love; itâ€™s a gift of life to be enjoyed responsiblyâ€“abuse it and lose it. If you drink, please donâ€™t drive.
