um...selling homebrew is illegal unless you have the proper licenses from state and federal agencies....then it's no longer called HOMEbrew! I'm sure there's a lot more red tape than that...basically you would be starting a brewery and I don't think that's what you had in mind!

Most simply, homebrew is "home" brew and can not be sold at all. An ATF agent once told me that strictly speaking it shouldn't even be taken from the home. So if you want to make money selling beer you have to have a licensed, commercial set-up.

I once read that in a couple of states people were permitted to sell their homebrew at local Farmer's Markets. I think Vermont was one of the states. It could have been all BS for all I know.
