Default Yes! I've done it!

I was checking the carb level tonight on my recently bottled Wit (3weeks tomorrow), and SWMBO tasted and exclaims "Mine!" and runs away with it.

I've finally won her over! To be fair, this may be the best beer I've ever made, so she's going to have to fight me for it...

Then I say to myself, It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

I am envious!

My wife is more of a wine person. I wish she shared my beer passions!

She's still a keeper: she suggested I send more beers to the NHC, which translates to "Brew more beer, honey".

I am very lucky in that my girl loves beer. Today she asked that I make a dunkelbock after the red ale and the delerium tremens clone I want to make.

This is why we started wine too, we both love beer but we drink a lot of wine also. So we made the jump and have a cab going now. I hope it turns out nice and we can wait that long. I'm going to hide a few bottles and let them age for a few years but as much as we like to drink I think they will be gone by next year

No one gets to claim "mine" and run...

Not even her...
