Under current California law, it is illegal to share homemade beer and wine with your friends outside your home. In fact, the only time it is legal to remove homemade beer or wine from your home is to enter it into a competition, where it can only be tasted by the judges."
"23356.2. Home brew. No license or permit shall be required for the brewing of beer for personal or family use, and not for sale, by a person over the age of 21 years. The aggregate amount of beer with respect to any household shall not exceed (a) 200 gallons per calendar year if there are two or more adults in such household, or (b) 100 gallons per calendar year if there is only one adult in such household. Any beer brewed pursuant to this section may be removed from the premises where brewed for use in competition at organized affairs, exhibitions or competitions, including homemakers’ contests, tastings, or judgings."
