I feel like you could take donations. That way the home brewer is just receiving a donation and the drinker is just receiving some free beer.

Yeah, that wouldn't look at all like selling.

donations, trade, barter. Their probably is no home brewer that hasn't swapped a bottle for something.

the difference is advertising the intent on a nationally viewable list.

Your regulations may vary but, the Federal Regulations that govern oklahoma are pretty clear that compensation for homebrew is illeagal. Even goes so far to say that while I may share, it must be consumed on my premises excepting only for purposes of competitions.

The person that posted the ad is an idiot and things like that only put the entire hobby in danger. If it becomes a problem the our wonderful government will feel the pressure to get involved and do something about it in the form of more regulations on home brewing or god-forbid, making it illegal again.

It is one thing to discuss what is legal and what is not and it is another to post something like this on craigslist.

/rant

For discussion purposes. Someone mentioned having them pitching the yeast. I don't see why that would be illegal since it is their beer then. Anyone else have an option on this?

But you're not selling it. You just received a donation because someone thinks you're that great of a person. And you just gave them some home brew because you thought they'd enjoy it.

Okay. Despite having passed laws allowing HomeBrew in Oklahoma, the ABLE commission continually disallows HomeBrew at Beer Festivals. They aren't selling the beer, right? All they are doing is offering samples to further promote a hobby, right?


Wrong.

Since the festival have a cover charge, or ticket charge, then the Federal Govt construes this (loosely) as sales.

Plain and simple. If you accept compensation for your beverage, monetary or otherwise, you've sold it and have violated Federal Law. Same applies to a competition if it has an entry fee. This is construed as a sales.

All the laws I've read in regards to homebrew say that it is illegal to sell or barter your homebrew. In fact most sources site that you can't even give away more than a 6 pack at a time.
