Default Some laws about beer?

I am 20 and brew, how does that work? Is it legal?

Is it legal for me to sell my beer at parties?

Can I give beer away?

If I take it too a bar instead of selling my beer could I sell cups?

What do I need to do to stay out of trouble?!

And if you just happen to be by a pile of crack rocks and are just selling empty baggies, who are they to say you can't?

Generally, yes, it's illegal to brew if you're not of age. Just like it is to drink it, but we know how that goes.

I'm not aware of any state that allows you to sell homebrew. Since it's a food product, you have to have permits for legality.

Yes, I think. Giving it away is fine, but you're still liable for possession of it, so...

That's fully dependent on where you live, however you're still liable for possession. There's some states where you can BYOB and there's others where you can't. Again, though, by law you can't possess alcohol.

How to stay out of trouble? Don't be stupid. Brew away, son, but don't try to sell it and don't throw ragers that get the cops called. If you brew beer and drink in peace in your home, no one's gonna know. There's several states where it's technically illegal to brew beer, but that doesn't stop homebrewers.

Again, just don't be stupid. Just like any party I've gone to at a frat or apartment, sell a cup for $5 and provide the beer. Just. Don't. Be. Stupid. About. It.

Yah good advice. I really like the selling cups idea, I am good at staying out of trouble thus me asking the laws so I know how to break them lol. I usally supply beer for people that are aloud to throw parties like clubs and stuff. But idk just making sure.

I am not going to look up any actual facts on the topic and am only pulling this out of my ass so I claim no responsibility if you end up in prison, but you can probably brew at your folks house with their permission as long as they claim its their brew and allow you to work on it.

If you want to brew to enjoy a fine beer for yourself that is more enjoyable than the natty light piss water kids your age normally drink then good on you. If you want to brew to sell beer at parties, you are probably going to end up with something or other on your permanent record.

If these are your reasons for brewing, get a license and open a brewery legit. If you're not willing to do it legit, may as well cook meth, there's way more money in it.
