In most states, giving away homebrew is limited. In Michigan, you can give away a limited amount of homebrew each year to individuals. In some states, like Oregon, homebrew can't even leave your home. Which means YOU can't even take it to your cottage or boat, or over to watch a football game at a friend's. You certainly can't give away a bottle of it, or serve it somewhere out of your home. Other states vary, but in all cases selling one beer while giving away the homebrew would be illegal.

Giving your craft brew away in most states would be greatly restricted if not straight out illegal.
