This year’s Indiana State Fair will serve alcohol to patrons for the first time in nearly 70 years – but there’s one glaring catch.

Visitors seeking a cold one will be issued a wristband that will then limit them to three itty-bitty sample-size glasses. In other words, what’s the point?

About 40 Indiana craft brewers and wineries will be setting up shop in the new wine and beer garden inside the fairgrounds’ Grand Hall. The General Assembly this year lifted a longstanding ban on alcohol at the fair and organizers began accepting applications last month. source

Alcohol won’t be allowed to leave the Grand Hall.

The fair is scheduled for Aug. 1-17. Weehoo..
