I think he is in for trouble. Selling homebrew is illegal and he is just putting it out there on CL for all to see.

I dunno...he isn't really selling it. he is offering it as compensation for services rendered. that said, if i DID do something like that, I wouldnt post it on CL for everyone to look at

He's not selling. He's bartering. The ATF has a lot more important things to worry about than some guy bartering homebrewed beer for remodel work.

It is offered as a barter but it seems very gray to me.

Can you really make enough money homebrewing 5 gallons to be worth your materials cost + time and effort?
Hell, my prep time and clean up time is measured in hours when one considers brewing and bottling (cleaning botthles, etc)
What if you have to toss a batch once in a while.
As for brewing 2 gallons, you can make a profit off that?

It seems like it works out to minimum wage.

Yes. And DHS has more important things to do than investigate every complaint about parents that spank their children.

And, yet ...
