Why do you separate out the Sam Adam's bottles?

What we need is a vending machine for glassware. You put $ in and out comes a clean glass.

I've been trying to separate out the bottles with labeling embossed in the glass. They still work great,just want more plain bottles for if & when I decide to enter competitions. I've got 4 cases of SA bottles for whoever wants them. I've got about two cases of other bottles,mostly plain that I have ready to de-label. But I'm keeping the German bottles,like the older Paulaner's with the bearded monks around the shoulder & the Wernesgruner's with the cool crest on the neck.

I like when they ask if I can bottle some up for them to take home. LOL

Bahhh wish I knew that a couple of weeks ago; was traveling from Fort Wayne, IN to Elmira, New York for work and looks like Sheffield isn't to far from 90 so could have made a quick detour and taken those bottles off your hands for my brother in-law. I have enough bottles that I will now throw away ones that are to much a pain to de-label, but the brother in-law is still working on getting his collection up.

It seems to me that if you are complaining about your friends drinking all your beer, you need another hobby
I brew beers just to get friends over to drink, no not drunken bashes, but I keep a light American lager on tap at any time just so my friends do not ask if all I brew is heavy beers.

Face it, most guys do not like big beers

And if they come over, and I put the CO@ to the keezer, then they can have all they want, if I do not prime the pump, well then I am not offereing right then

They cannot drink what you do not offer, if they think it is free, tell them how much it cost to brew it.

LOL like leftovers in tupperware.

I don't mind sharing. I brew way more than I should or could ever consume. I love the act of brewing and even with 4 kegs, I still intend to give out a growler to each person. I now say return the growler after you swirl it with a bit of water, bring back the polyseal cap (which I refer to as the cap because they do not care that it is a good one) and I'll refill when I can. Again, I'll never turn down someone wanting to contribute to the ingredients but they do not. I assume it is because they're not asking for the beer, I'm just offering. I suppose when they start to ask then that's when maybe they'll feel like contributing even a couple of bucks.

I love having people have a pint or two and enjoy what I created. If I sat there and drank all the beer that I have now in kegs, that would become an issue. If a cook makes a great meal, don't they share with all?

It all comes back to you some way or another, so…………keep brewing

State Rout I90 is just a couple hundred feet west of my house. You can see it from the highway. Sheffield exit by Mike Bass Ford.
