Default Can't believe my wife did this......

It was a proud moment for me last night. My wife who rarely drinks beer in the first place and when she does, will only drink bud light has always been forced to a least take a sip of my creations. The response has always been....ugh.

Well friday night I came home from a ball game to find my wife drinking one of my pale ales (edworts) since it was the only thing in the fridge and had a rough day on the job.

I didn't say anything but watched her intently as she took each sip waiting for some sort of comment. None to be had.

Long story short....come Sunday evening we are sitting down watching a movie, had gone shopping earlier that day which included a sixer of her bud light which was now in the fridge...she asks if I want a beer.

I say sure and let her fish out a pale ale for me and a BL for her. Well she comes back with two pints of what look like my pale ales and smiles. "Well" she says, "it's kind've pointless drinking BL when I have the good stuff right here"

That right there was my proudest moment, my wife now knows what good beer is. I love being inspired, and now will have to brew more

Now you only need to get her to make you a grilled cheese sandwich!

Excellent story! They always come around sooner or later.

Unfortunately my wife is a huge stout fan and I prefer IPAs...trying to make a hoppy porter to satisfy us both.

My GF didn't "like beer" either until she tried my Hefeweizen. Now she likes it all. You will have her drinking Hop Monsters and RIS's before you know it!

I'm still trying to get SWMBO to like any of my beer. I brewed BM's Centennial Blonde with US-05 and she says "it's too dry" - so I'm going to try that one again with the intended yeast and hopefully she'll like that. Just kegged some Apfelwein, and she's a big Chardonnay drinker, so though not beer maybe she'll like that.

Great job on yours!

I was lucky.

When I first started and got my kit in the mail she gave me an odd look. That look when you have one a dozen too many hobbies and now this. However she was open to the idea in a way.

After tasteing the results of the first brew she is sold. No complaints from her yet as long as I let her suggest a beer or two. I made her a rasberry beer and a pumpkin beer which she loves.

It's always nice when they share in a hobby that is truely awesome.
