We’ve come a long way!
Since the beginning of time people have been brewing beer, and some records indicate that the ancient Sumerians produced a beer-like beverage around 3000BC. Homebrewing was outlawed in the U.S. with the madness that was Prohibition. After Prohibition was repealed, wine making at home was made legal, however beer brewing at home was not made legal due to a stenographers error!
In 1978, a federal law was passed that allows 100 gallons of homebrew to be made per adult per household (the average homebrew batch is 5 gallons), up to a maximum of 200 gallons of homebrew per household. We hope you enjoy your stay!
