Hey guys..just in case you missed it. On 10/1 Gov. Brown signed AB 1425 into law. It gives homebrewers the right to donate homebrew to a charity event. It can then be sold....as long as all money raised goes to the charity. Here is some more info. http://napavalleyregister.com/lifest...a4bcf887a.html

So could my wife set a charity up to benefit me that I donate homebrew to?

No but you could setup up a charity, say for local farmer (hops) that you are on the board of. Your charity could then pay its officers and board members...

Could I then be the CEO, coo, CFO, and chairman of the board?

In all seriousness though this is going to be great for those of us who would like to go pro someday. I have already been approached by some non profits to donate beer for their events. My plan is that I will donate beer as long as they allow me to sell brewery t-shirts. The t-shirt sales "should" pay for all the beer and cover my costs. It's also a great way to get the name out there while supporting a worthwhile charity....not to mention a legitimate tax deduction.

Cool! We can thank Jimmy Carter for the law that lets us brew and now Gov. Brown for this one! I'm not likely to start voting for the damn-o-rats but they have done freedom loving Americans another favor!
