This question in our irregular column comes from a Spambot. Spambot attempted to put in a pingback in our last advice column. Here’s the information in the form of a question:
Dear Occipital Hazard,
Is it legal to brew beer in your home in the United States if you’re under the legal drinking age of 21?
No, it is not. Just as it is illegal to consume alcoholic beverages, it is illegal for anyone under 21 to even help in the brewing process in the home of a legal-aged home brewer. So don’t touch the still. How do I know? I Googled the thing. Everyone says no.
Also: to home brew spirits, one must pay taxes on them. Interesting. Didn’t know that.
Spambots everywhere can continue to ask us questions. We may just answer them, if we can interpret them, like the Jeopardy judges, as a question.
