My Son, Brendan Megowan, who is 24, has recently found an avocation, believing that he should follow his convictions and interest in craft beer brewing. It is legal to brew beer at home in California. California state statute § 23356.2 allows the manufacture of beer for personal or family use, and not for sale by a person over the age of 21. You may remove the beer from the home to enter competitions, tastings, etc. The aggregate amount of beer with respect to any household is limited to 200 gallons per year or 100 gallons if only one adult resides in the household.
It is very interesting the various brewing methods he utilizes, with varying amounts of barley, yeast, etc. and other special additives to make unique beers . He tends to like the fuller stout ales and has entered his beers in several competitions. His dream is to open a craft brewery and restaurant .
