The General Assembly has passed a bill that would allow craft micro-distilleries to operate in Indiana and sell their liquor on-site.

The state Senate approved the bill 38-9 Tuesday. Its author, Republican Rep. Ed Clere of New Albany, agreed to changes made by the Senate, so it heads to Gov. Mike Pence for his consideration.

The Indianapolis Star reports Huber's Orchard, Vineyard and Winery in southern Indiana, Three Floyds Brewing of Munster and Indianapolis brewer Sun King all plan to open micro-distilleries with a mix of craft vodkas, bourbons and other liquors.

The few Indiana distilleries that exist can produce hard alcohol only for wholesale distribution to retailers. Michigan, Ohio and Illinois already allow distilleries to sell alcohol on-site.
