Posted by on May 9, 2016

 

Here’s to the home brewer, the truly dedicated who want to make a beer just for them.  And here are a few things about homebrewing that they themselves may not know.  For instance:

1. HOMEBREWING DIDN’T BECOME LEGAL UNTIL 1978.

On October 14, 1978, President Jimmy Carter signed into law amendment Public Law 95-458 (H.R. 1337), which states an adult (21 and over) could legally produce beer in his/her home without paying taxes on it. It took until February of the following year for the bill to go into effect, but there was a stipulation: A two-person household cannot exceed 200 gallons of beer per year, or one adult cannot produce more than 100 gallons in a year. Today, it’s still illegal to sell homebrewed beer to the public.
