I even get nervous when someone says "I'd love to buy the recipe for you to make beer for out tennis mixer" because that's getting awful danged close to brewing for a fee.

If they're buying the ingredients but your labor is not paid for, I don't see a problem with that.

Let me google that for you:

Don't really see that at all. It is really no different than buying a bunch of meat for your friend so he can smoke it for your tennis mixer. I am doing this for a buddy's wedding. He buys all the ingredients and I make the beer.
Really don't think we need to overthink this......just use some common sense.

You would think but apparently alcohol is quite a different animal. Hell, the US fought its first war against some people intent on distilling at home - the Whiskey Rebellion. Alcohol is regulated differently than other products.

If I had a nickel for every time someone has told me they would buy my beer, well, I'd have a whole lot of nickels!

North Dakota just shot down a bill to be able to sell beer and wine at a farmers market, at least there was consideration. I have also heard that you can sell beer and wine off a farmstead in certain areas of the country but has stipulations; I have no sound evidence for this though. Keep bothering the local reps and maybe a farmers market could work if the state is not scared of the feds cracking down.

This is a property use situation under loco and state law, and doesn't change the federal licensing requirements.

In Virginia you can do that with wine if you grow at least 51% of the fruit on your property and buy a $190 license locally through ABC, but you still have to file for a federal permit through the TTB. I never looked into the cost of the federal permit.
