A lawsuit filed by Indiana’s largest beer distributor is challenging liquor laws that date from the Prohibition.

Monarch Beverage Co.’s lawsuit against the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission alleges that a state law that limits alcohol wholesalers from supplying both beer and liquor violates the U.S. Constitution.

Monarch has tried unsuccessfully to advance a bill supporting its position the last four legislative sessions. Indiana Legislative Insight publisher Ed Feigenbaum says it is unlikely to change this coming year.

Liquor distributors say changing the law would allow Monarch to create a monopoly.
