Cite error: There are <ref> tags on this page, but the references will not show without a {{reflist}} template (see the help page ). Legal in all states. Individual states remain free to restrict or prohibit the manufacture of beer, mead, hard cider, wine and other fermented alcoholic beverages at home.
