Rules for home brews

Steve Bader of Bader Beer and Wine was nice enough to clarify some of the rules for home brewers who want to transport their beer around Washington for a larger story we had in The Columbian about brewing in all 50 states.

Here’s his part of the story:

Prior to 2009 Washington state legislation indicated home brewers could take up to one gallon of beer to a competition or other event, said Steve Bader, owner of Bader Beer and Wine Supply in Vancouver.

“That was pretty restrictive,” Bader said, adding that the law didn’t allow them to transport any beer to a friend’s house or other location.

Brewers in Seattle lobbied the legislature in 2009, and the law was changed so that home brewers could transport up to 20 gallons to private events, he said.

“That’s much better,” Bader said. “That’s so if you want to have a wedding or other event and make your own beer, now you can do that.”

Home rewers still can’t bring their beer to events open to the public, he added.
