I got my first complement on my first brew... in fact it was the first beer opened! After only 5 days in the bottle I popped one open tonight to test and a friend informed me it "tasted like an expensive beer." In Isla Vista, where everyone spends their money on terrible faux-beers like Keystone, that's quite a compliment! If only I could get some actual feedback from an experienced brewer in 2 weeks when they're ready?

Last week a friend challenged me to put my Octoberfest (actually BM's recipe) up against Sam Adams Octoberfest in a blind challenge. He said he could pick out the SA in a heartbeat after not seeing from which bottles the beers were poured.

He didn't. I win.

Thanks BM.

that's cool.

I took three of my brews to my local brewing club... they asked if I had done this professionally. They then told me that if they had been entered in the regional contests that they had just judged... they would have won hands down. Next year is what I am thinking

The first brew i made i gave a bottle to a Old navy vet, He told me it was just like what they used to drink overseas. Told me to keep them coming. Its great the older people seem to enjoy homebrew as much as myself. Not so much the Born-Raised Bud-lite stlye people

The best compliment I've ever received was "Dude!!! You could totally sell this s***!!!" from a friend who despises BMC beers.

My dad told me it was amazing how much my pale ale tasted like Budweiser. I didn't give him anymore after that.

Same result here. BM's OctoberFast kicked SA's Oktoberfest all around the block in blind testing.


I think the best compliment is when someone fills their own glass off the taps and end up forgetting about the beer they brought that is in the fridge.

Of course, the BMC usually ends up being left in the fridge when they leave too. Good or bad. *shrug*

Best compliment was a friend of a friend over who got a brown off the tap, "Mmm, that's good. Who makes this?"
Friend: "Jason made it."
FOF: "WOW! You made this? This is almost the best beer ever. Wow!"
Then he mentioned something again in passing a few days later about the best beer in the world. LOL! That was a nice feeling.
