Default best thing she could say

So I am getting married in two weeks. My fiance and I decided to brew beer for the reception. She has never been involved in the brewing process before, just the drinking part. We decide it would be fin to do.a few batches together, a wit beer, an imperial stout, and an oktoberfest. While bottling the last of the ten cases last night she pauses while filling a bottle and says to me "you know at the next house you should make an entire room just for brewing beer" after that there is no doubt she is the woman for me.

Nice!
I had kinda the opposite. SWMBO doesn't like beer (yet!), so when we were house hunting we had to find a house with a spare room somewhere so my "beer stuff wasn't all over the house".

That is very cool! My fiancée has committed to brew her own batch which is so sexy. Better piece is not only does she promote me having a brew space, she would love for me to have a brewshed...

Sounds like a winner!

When I got married back in '94, my wife was not sure about homebrewing. A year an a half before the wedding, I made 10 gallons (48 bottles) of homemade sparkling wine for the reception - 1 bottle per table. This went over too well sinceI'm still getting questions from the people who were at the reception if I can make sparkling wine for them.

My wife has never given me any questions or gruff concerning my homebrewing in almost 20 years!

Congrats!

I'm sorry to rain on the parade, but the best swmbo is one who accepts and supports your brew habit but doesn't drink beer. My wife likes my beer and tastes it when I ask her to, but she only drinks hard liquor. Oh yeah, more for me.

Congrats on the wedding though.

my wife doesn't drink, and after 13 years, she finally stopped asking "are you finished cooking yet?" she calls brewing "cooking"...

Supportive women are tough to find. Congrats on finding one who would put up with you and your brewing. I'm lucky enough to have one too. She even pretends to listen about my ramblings of new brew techniques or ingridients.

I was just saying last night that it's nice to have a spouse to support your obsession, er, hobby.

I do all the brewing, but only drink half the beer.

As an example, the other night I was pouring one last beer. I chose a bottle, an IIPA for the end of the night. I said "Do you want another beer, or half of mine?".

The answer, "No. I've had enough. Thanks".

Me: "Ok. I'm going to open this Lake Erie Monster"

Him: "I want my half!!!!!!!!!"

He LOVES my homebrew, and talks about recipes with me and is a great judge. He also helps haul heavy things around, like two carboys yesterday. There is no way I'd have the system I have without his support.
