Default Is takeing a beer to a bar illegal?

So a "beer bar" in town thinks it's illegal to bring one of my homebrews or commercial beers to share with patrons/bartenders. I can't see this to be true since our homebrew club meets every month a does exactly that. This is the only bar I've seen have a problem with it others around are cool with it.

It depends where you live. Home brew laws differ from state to state.

Not much of an answer. Where do you live?

The articles I have read are somewhat older now, but some states do not even allow the beer to leave the premises where it was brewed. There are some states that allow it at official club meetings and others that do not.

This might be better answered by a quick google search for Florida laws regarding the laws.

I know it's illegal in my state to bring outside alcohol into a bar/restaurant. The ABC (liquor) license that the bar holds only gives their patrons the right to consume alcohol on premises if purchased from the license holder (the bar).

Not sure why you'd assume a bar would let you bring in your own product and take away sales. My local HB club gets some sort of special permission for tastings at the brewery/bar where we meet but that's rather different from bringing in several to share with your buddies.

It depends on your state laws and the bars alcohol permits. It's similar to being able to bring in a bottle of wine and being charged an uncorking fee. Whether their permit allows that and whether they charge you a fee depends on them.
