Does anybody know if homebrewing is legal in the territory? I know it is in all 50 states but that may not be the case here. I have been an avid brewer in the past and miss a good quality craft brew!

It is legal -- on STT there are a number of home brewers and there is an occasional informal gathering where bottles are exchanged.

the ones I know usually ship their yeast down from the states.

Thanks! I would assume the same laws apply across the territory, one VI no borders no boundaries...

There is a store on St. Croix called Ale House in Gallows Bay. He carries an extensive selection of over 200 European and N Amercian craft beers. Its like a craft beer lovers paradise. He also owns a distributorship called Ales & Others which distributes all of these beers throughout bars and restaurants the VI. Dan can be reached at 340-277-7617.

Thanks Carib,
I have stopped in and met Dan. Have a passion for brewing and would love to introduce some home-brews to the island. Maybe I can make something of it after I figure out all the hoops to jump through.

I understand that Dan will be bringing in some home brewing products for folks like you in the near future. I love his selection of beer.

It's on STX, in Gallows Bay, behind Caribbean Printing and Marketing, or about 200 feet west of No Bones Cafe. It's slightly set back from the street, in the southeast corner of its building.

Bring lots of money.
