I don't brew in my garage so none of neighbors know what my setup looks like. A few of them know that I brew and have seen the kegs.

I bought my house at the top of the market and most of the ones that were here when I moved here have lost their homes so now I have new neighbors. Good bunch of people but most keep to themselves.

I live in the perfect neighborhood at the end of a street where everyone minds their own business. I could probably do a lot weirder things than brew before anyone started getting nosey.

Almost the same here. I run a smoker every so often throughout the year as well as my BK.. No one pays the slightest bit of attention to it.

No sheep here at all. I'm the badazz biker farmer child advocate from the wrong side of the tracks. I personally moved the tracks. I grind yuppies for AG.

My neighborhood is pretty quiet, and a lot of the families keep to themselves. While I like my privacy, I'm totally willing to help out when I need to.

Most don't care about craft beer so they don't have any interest in my hobby, but I think I managed to make myself the black sheep anyway around this time last year. The children of several households always hang out together, and took it upon themselves that they would relieve their boredom by harassing my wife and I...taunting our dog, shooting paintballs all over our garage door (on Christmas Eve, no less), and shooting out a lamppost by the driveway a couple weeks later. At the risk of being the "you damn kids get off my lawn"-guy, I called the parents on it. Since then, I've been on the neighborhood sh*t list with those families, but I don't really mind.

I live in a townhouse and we have "alleys" essentially between the garages. My direct neighbors all know about my brewing and occasionally stop by to chat for a few minutes about it. One unpleasant older woman felt the need to call the police due to people congregating outside my garage for my sons first birthday, and another yelled at me for hitting her house with a frisbee. Aside from those two, everyone is pretty cool. The next block over from me really gets into my brewing. Everytime I walk over there people want to know whats on tap, whats fermenting, etc. That usually results in a field trip back to my house to fill some glasses.

Screw those stuffy stuck-up a$$holes.....

Several of my neighbors homebrew...in fact one of them got me started....

Luckily my neighbors are cool...and most of them are beer drinkers...hell, the wives are usually the ones that stop over to chat when I am brewing.......

That's what home brew is for! Social lubricant.

My neighbor to the left loves my dark beers already, his wife begs me to start doing wine. I just might! I'm sure there are more neighbors that will be interested once summer comes back around.

I brew in the basement though so it will be neighborhood chit chat that gets the word out.

As for me though, I really could care less what the neighborhood folks think. I'm sure the housewarming party expressed how we roll! Lol

I brew in the backyard so its kinda on the down low. The only person who has mentioned home brew to me was the U.P.S. guy. As he was delivering hb supplies.

A lot of my neighbors brew beer too. I live directly across the street from a grocery store that sells more beer than anywhere else in Oregon and I brew on my front porch so I'm constantly having people come by and check it out the whole time I'm brewing.
