A temporary permit is good for beer and wine only - not liquor. If you want to have liquor served at your event, you must have a licensed alcoholic beverage caterer. A temporary permit is valid for on premises consumption only. "Carry out" and "carry on" is not permitted.

If you do not know the local excise district for your event, you can obtain this information from our website at Indiana State Excise Police. The Excise Officer reserves the right to hold the application for review if he / she deems necessary. The temporary permit may be revoked for good cause.
You must have individuals (must be at least 21 years of age) who are licensed servers and bartenders to serve at the temporary function. You may apply for Temporary Bartenders' permits that can only be used during the temporary function.
