Default Home Brew makes my wife act funny...

She's not much of a beer drinker to begin with and at 106lbs it doesn't take much anyway, but she's a good sport and likes to drink some with me because I made it and she's supportive of that - which is cool.

But the 5.4% Heffe and the 8.6% Belgian Golden Ale seem to hit her like a freight train. 1 or two glasses and she's off to the races. I can't be the only one...

Certainly leaves more for me! There were two times in the past where she drank really big 5 shots of Jager... Those were interesting nights. I'll stick to beer from here on out..

My wife had gastric bypass surgery so half of a bud or coors places her firmly in bed. All alcohol goes straight to her blood stream pretty much. Needless to say recently when iI had la fin du monde and westmalle tripel night at my house she saw a light colored golden beer and downed about half my pint and shortly after that was asking me if I drugged her lol

Lucky dogs. My wife seldom drinks, but when she does, it's mixed drinks and/or hard liquor - in serious multiples. I've seen her put several large men under the table.

Naturally, she does not care for beer.

Mine will drink a beer on rare occasion, but when she does, it's usually two or less.

I can say one thing though, tequila makes her clothes fall off. Margaritas are her poison of choice.

My woman doesn't often drink beer, but when she does, she prefers my homebrew. Stay thirsty, my friends.

Homebrew also makes my wife act funny and say things like, "You drink too much!!" "You've had enough!!" and "Go to BED!"

...I don't know what it is!??!!
