Homebrew Clubs / Re: Fundraiser Question
« on: December 23, 2013, 12:42:24 PM »
I think the short answer is no.  In each of the three situations money is changing hands.  If the beer is removed from the equation would money change hands?  In the title you are calling this a fund raiser which implies the only reason for the beer is to make money on the sale of beer.

In the first situation would I be able to get “free beer” without paying the entry fee?  I the answer is no then the beer is not free and there is a sale.  In the second situation would the festival organizers still pay you if you just stood around and talked about beer and did not provide the beer promised?  If not then the transaction is a sale of beer to the festival organizers.  In the last situation, if I brought my own growler would it be filled with “free beer” at no cost to me?  Again if the answer is no then the beer is not free and there is a sale.

In each situation, whether to an individual or the club, I am expected to give up my money to get your beer.  I believe this would define a sale of beer.

The Pub / Re: Fla Alcoholic Beverage license

My cousin in Tampa is interested in opening a Beer and Win bar. He emailed me and was asking about license options and from the looks of it you guys down there can't sell beer on premiss to be consumed at over 6.243% ABV -

Can anyone shed any light on this for me? Is that really the case?

I was looking over your link and it looks like the 6.243% of alcohol by volume, or less, license is $56 - $280 and higher alcohol content is $624 - $1820, if I am reading it correctly.

I called the Fair office to find out the answer and was told it was because there was no superintendent for the beer department this year and they were unable to install one and get everything together in time for this year’s Fair.  They do have a superintendent now and I was assured that it will be back next year.
