Yeah, good point. I was thinking more from the standpoint that I doubt the law would bother to hassle individuals however the bar could be a different story.
We "almost" caused this ourselves with our local Brew Pub.
Our laws in GA don't allow beer brought into brew pubs. We had always brought it in anyway, thumbing our noses at "the Man", but the Man actually started paying attention - to the point they had planned a "raid" during our homebrew competition, which we hurriedly moved to another location. Our meetings were, I'll have to say, getting out of hand with 50+ people coming and probably 20-25 homebrews to sample, all out in the open.
Since the brewpub was looking at expansion - and was warned by the DOR to "cease and desist allowing contraband beer into his establishment" - he asked us to stop bringing in homebrew. We sure didn't want him to get into trouble because of us so we've gone to a business meeting at the brewpub with a separate Beer Swap meeting at indivudual's houses.
