I brew what I like and am pleasantly surprised by the friends/family that enjoy it as well. I have a friend that makes wine and one that makes salsa. We all keep the other hooked up. They can certainly make requests when they are providing my household with consumables. It is great to enjoy my own beer, but the sharing gives me outside opinions. You just have to accept the constructive criticism once in a great while.

60% is for me. 25% is for the wife. The other 15% is for my wife's family reunion each year. I don't do requests from friends unless they are willing to come brew it with me.

Me for the larger part,but my inlaws drink it when it's not too hoppy(not very often!) and I enjoy giving a bottle or two to friends and the people who bring back ingredients for me from the world.

I brew for me. It is a great hoppy and you can make it what you want.

I brew mostly for others... just don't drink that much. But I do enjoy a well made beer... My wife is the big beer drinker, and she normally has 1 maybe 2 beers on Fri. Sat. and Sun. My friends though can drink with the best of them. After 6 hours of ranch work today my buddy drained 5 bottles while I nursed 1... Always enjoyed cooking and brewing beer is an extension of that. Making beer better than the best craft beers is rewarding in itself. The making for others is the thing....

I brew because it is my passion. Sharing my brew and hearing
People's thoughts on it is my favorite aspect. Also, the gf loves it.

I love the brewing process, and I like drinking the beer I brew. I also like being generous and passing out my beers to my family and friends. There really isn't a beer that I wouldn't drink, so I try and brew a batch that my family/friends like even if it isn't one I'd normally drink. Example, my father-in-law is a BMC drinker and doesn't like anything "dark" (I.e. with flavor), so im going to brew a cream ale at some point so he can enjoy my homebrew. I'll give him a few 6 packs and share them with him when I'm at his house visiting. If I only brewed for myself, I'd probably only brew IPA's because I'm a creature of habit.

I definitely brew for others. I don't really drink that much and it would take me ages to drink all the beer I brew.

One of the coolest things about homebrewing is showing people that there are options. Homebrew can be pretty easy - got all the pots, a food-grade bucket or carboy, and a little guidance, you're good.

Homebrew can seem like a miracle to folks used to buying Bud-in-a-can. Real honest-to-the-guy-upstairs beer is such an old technology - 3000+ years. Just reminding people that it is something that they can do in their own homes without too much effort is a wonderful thing.

Homebrewing - Keeping people plugged into the fact that there was life and happiness before the electrical outlet.

I brew mainly for me, though dad drinks his fair share. Will be brewing for an event for the first time this spring. Planning to keep it simple.
