I believe most states that continue to follow the three tier model prohibit an entity or individuals from owning more than one level in the tier.

People bring product, they share product and it appears, in this case, in that state, it is only beer with a value placed on the event. So if, rather than bartering, everyone shares their particular product according to an agreement with others willing to share their product they're good to go.

OK, no bartering, just agreements to share in an equitable manner.

I have been following BrewlabsSF for a while now. I don't think what they do is completely legal, in some cases I believe people don't bring any beer but rather bring money to trade. They certainly aren't shy about what they are doing!! I know they have written up in several local newspapers/blogs. What I find interesting is that really they are on the cutting edge as far as what homebrewers are doing on a community level. It may well be a model for others.

What if you just brew and sell your homebrew on a boat in International Waters?

Success??

If Seasteading takes off, I want to build a brewery on the converted oil rig.

Start a Cruise line, the brew cruise...

And at $6 a beer to be competitive with the other cruise lines, you could definitely turn a profit... (as long as you already have access to a 30 billion dollar ship)

You aren't that far off!! Check this out! Mobile taproom.....http://brewtrucsf.com/ The best part is that he needs NO ALCOHOL LICENSE in CA!! He is considered a limo/charter bus which are specifically exempt from needing an alcohol license. The cost is for the "ride" and the beers, including homebrew, are complimentary. He takes people on tours of SF or sometimes he just parks it in a public lot like a food truck. Such a great idea!!

Now that's the kind of thinking that gets people to where he's going - he sees opportunities where others might see obstacles.

I'm going on a cruise in January. Should I bring all my stuff? I wonder if there's a beer that I can make and have drinkable within 5 days.

I love the human brain...when things sound impossible there is always someone who proves that impossible is just a door that hasn't been opened yet
