Default Bottle guy wants to buy my beer

There is a guy I get bottles from. I a give him beer in exchange.
He is now desparate to buy my beer. You just can't get the exact flavour commercially. (You can search my posts and you will find the recipes. They are simple. )

Makes me feel like drug dealer. I told him I can't legally sell it. I can give it away.

These types of things can be figured out. You give him the beer for free, and he makes a donation to you for helping him get rid of his bottles.

Bartering with alcohol is HIGHLY illegal.

Had you not posted it on the internet, no one would ever know.

Have him purchase the ingredients for the batch, and you keep half of the batch. Sounds perfectly fine to me.

Maybe throw in a nice new brew toy to facilitate the process...

But in all seriousness does anyone know of a legal issue with these grounds?

What he said ^^^

Quote:
Trading or Bartering

The trading or bartering of alcoholic beverages for cash or in exchange for different alcoholic beverages by and between retail liquor dealers, in order that they may take advantage of special deals involving quantity discounts or free goods offered by wholesale liquor dealers, is not a bona fide loan of liquors described in Revenue Ruling 54-509 which outlines transactions constituting bona fide loans. Such trading or bartering constitutes sales for purpose of resale and engaging in this practice would subject the retail dealers to liability for special tax as wholesale liquor dealers and would necessitate the acquiring of basic permits as wholesale liquor dealers. This ruling relates only to the trading or bartering of merchandise between retailers after purchase thereof by one or more retailers individually, and not to the cooperative purchasing of alcoholic beverages by several retailers, dealt with in Revenue Ruling 56-204.

26 U.S.C. 5111; 27 CFR 194.28
You can thank Revvy for this statute

And I'm sure the TTB will take that into account...
