Craft Beer Rules

​Event season is in full swing in Minnesota and the Alcohol and Gambling Enforcement Division wants to make sure those manufacturing home craft beers are providing their product legally.

Under state law, homebrewers providing “tastings” or “samples” at contests or events must display signage with their name and address, and state the product is:

  • Homemade.
  • Not subject to state inspection.
  • Not licensed or regulated by the state.

It is also illegal for homebrewers to serve to those under 21, or be paid or compensated for their product, including receiving donations.
