I think that's my problem too. When I moved in 5 years ago, I was one of the youngest homeowners in a subdivision of 35 or so houses. It's not like I was throwing keg parties on my front yard, but I think that age gap (and that fact the my wife and I don't have any kids yet) made people a little more distant.

I am the King of all the other Black Sheep in my neighborhood. I'm 35, divorced and have no kids. On a typical brew day in the summer there's about 10 people hanging out in my garage. Loud music, lotsa beers, potato gun firing, friends relieving themselves on the side of my garage and motorcycles doing burnouts in the driveway. It's just like being in college again! I love it!

Although I have no way of proving it, I suspect that they'd leave me alone, like they usually do. I should have a better answer next time I brew, but that may be some time. I don't have enough bottles to do another brew, unless I go for a two-month triple-ferment, six-week bottle conditioning, so I can't see myself brewing against the wishes of my neighbors.

No, I think Belmont Station has one of the best selections but I live across the street from a New Seasons grocery store that sells the most volume of beer. It's pretty much all craft beer though and not too shabby.

As a reference, I've actually become a little more social with another of our neighbors because his grand kids are the same age as my kids. So, when they are in town, the kids play together a lot.
Wait, Bud uses hops? Lol least flavor in the world

Actually there was just recently a whole article about this, Budweiser used to use German hops of the highest quality before they were purchased by InBev. As much flack as they get they were actually brewing a very high quality product.

My neighbors sell drugs, so I'm the normal one on the block.

I bought a house in the country so I wouldn't have to worry about my neighbors or those ridiculous HOA's!

I brew on my covered back deck and there is nothing behind my house but a row of trees and then a corn field. None of my closer neighbors have any clue that I brew.

If I'm a black sheep on my road it would be due to the fact that I currently have 5 vehicles parked in the driveway (2 are for sale). But I do keep up with the house and yard at least as well as my closest neighbors.
