Using my Homebrew to raise money for charity

<< < (2/5) > >>

bo_gator:
This Saturday (6/19) my local area is having a charity home brew festival, and the way they got around it is NC did not like selling tickets to an event where untaxed beer is being given away, so they started a "join the charity" fee and the state let it go. So for $15 you can become a member of the charity and enjoy ~ 5-6 hours of free home brewed beer, not sure of this would fly in other states or not

speed:
i have been donating beer to local charities for years and the local sheriff and state patrol have neither one said i couldn't do it.

The Rabid Brewer:

Can't be done legally unless it's a competition. CA state law allows you to brew for personal use and only remove beer from your premises for competition. I.e., you can't even give it away.

The aggregate amount of beer with respect to any household shall not exceed 200 gallons or 100 gallons if only one adult resides in such household.

Any beer manufactured pursuant to this section may be removed from the premises where manufactured for use in competition at organized affairs, exhibitions or competitions, including homemakers' contests, tastings, or judgings.

It seems like there could be a bit of leeway as to what constitutes a homemaker's tasting. I wonder if there's any interpretive case law concerning this statute. It would be a simple search on Westlaw or LexisNexis.

Does anyone know if there is a legal way for me to give my beer away for a donation to a charity?

How about an alternative

You can "teach" the winner to brew beer, have them brew with you, pitch the yeast, come back in an appropriate amount of time and bottle the beer.

That way it is always "their" beer
