The U.S limits you to 200 gallons/year, but nobody polices it and you can pretty much make as much as you want.

Carter Signs Homebrew Legislation


On October 14, 1978 President Carter signed a bill, H.R. 1337, which dealt primarily with excise taxes on certain, trucks, buses, tractors, distributions from retirement plans, and permission for certain persons to receive cash payments in lieu of food stamps.

Beer, what about the beer?

On August 23 of this year, Senator Alan Cranston (D-CA) and Senators Schmitt (MN), Bumpers (AR), and Gravel (AK) proposed an amendment to this bill (Amdt. No. 3534). The amendment called for equal treatment under the law for home winemakers and home beer brewers. Brewing 100 gallons per adult, up to 200 gallons per household, would be permitted for personal use. The term “brewer”, used in current federal regulations and taxation was clarified to mean a person who brews beer for sale or who brews more than the legal amount. Homebrewers do not have to register or pay taxes on their 100 gallons of personally used brew.

Not sure if this will help or not, but it's worth mentioning.

One serious benefit to the relaxed homebrewing laws here in the States is the direct influx of cash to the national economy. Innovations by home brewers who had the freedom to experiment, and later went on to open craft breweries, have changed the face of the alcohol industry. The influx of new businesses introduced new styles, ingredients and products to customers which drastically increased the market demand and sales over the past few decades, effectively adding billions to the US economy.

Hope this helps your cause. Good luck!

Not to mention there have been literally 100's if not thousands of home brew supply stores springing up everywhere.

The American Homebrew's Association published an article on " The Economic Impact of Homebrewing ". Homebrew shops alone generate 764 million USD in revenue and the estimated impact of home brewing in general being 1.225 billion USD and 11 672 jobs.
