Time change gives Hoosier bars an extra hour to sell booze

Bars, taverns, liquor stores and other retail outlets will have an extra hour to sell alcoholic beverages early Sunday.

The end of daylight saving time pushes clocks backs from 2 a.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday, so the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission announced Friday that alcoholic beverage sales may continue until 3:00 a.m. that morning.

Under Indiana law, all sales of beer, wine and other alcoholic beverage sales must end at 3 a.m.
