INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.-- Strict limits will be in place when the Indiana State Fair sells alcoholic drinks for the first since 1946 when its 17-day run begins Friday.

The fair says customers will be limited to three beers or three glasses of wine apiece. They also can sample products as long as they don't have more than 36 ounces of beer or 15 ounces of wine.

Spokesman Andy Klotz says the fair wants some controls in place so people are limited in their drinking while they're at the fairgrounds on Indianapolis' north side.

The drinks will be served at the Grand Hall across the street from the Coliseum. People must be at least 21 to enter and the drinks must stay inside. The featured Indiana breweries and wineries will change daily.
