We have a local BBQ festival where there are both vendors and citizens entering the BBQ competition. Contestants may not provide their food to the public, even for free. This is both for health code reasons, and I'm sure to not compete with the vendors. Always made sense to me, even though I'd like to be able to sample their wares.
Laws are laws.
You do get into a difficult area where some of the beers available at a place are taxes and controlled while others aren't. I know there's a bar that has a "homebrewer" night. But they open it up just to the participating homebrewers, and hold it in a private spare separate from where taxed and "public" service occurs.

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
