Default Funny story . . .sort off

Through a non-beer blog I met another guy a few months ago that was also a brewer, more of a fermentor making wine beer sauerkraut mead and so forth.

He also grew hops and asked if I wanted a few pounds of cascade. Of course.

I got them and brewed up what has become a great beer, a West Coast Blaster from Palmer's book.

So I own him beer right? I give him a six pact and he takes it to Chicago for Thanksgiving and EVERYBODY loves it (how can you not love a 7.0% ABV beer). In fact his brother after drinking a bottle comments:

As told by Sean - "One of my brothers said "this is the best beer you've ever made!" Of course I had to remind him that I didn't make it. The conversation died for a few awkward minutes.

================
Maybe it's only funny to me as I can see myself saying something like that.

assuming the "few pounds" of cascade wasnt a typo you might owe him more than six. but you should definitely give him the recipe so the next time his brother compliments him it will be something he brewed.
