We had a small party here tonight with 8 friends coming over for drinks and food.
A couple people asked to try my homebrew. I only had a stout bottled. Surprisingly, people ended up drinking a lot of it. The most common comment was "nice flavour and none of that homebrew after taste".
People put down quite a few bottles of the stuff, despite many of them not being fans of "dark" beers. Needless to say, I was very pleased. Most people didn't even touch the beers they brought.
Now that everyone left, I barely have any homebrew left, but my fridge is stocked full of commercial beers left by my guests. One guest told me that he was going to bring me a case of Grolsch bottles sitting in his garage.
What a great night. It's one thing to brew a beer that I can appreciate, but to see my friends enjoy it so much brings me a whole new level of joy.
