I find it amazing how little a brewing co-worker and I are able to get done once we start talking brewing. We did a joint 10 gallon batch this past weekend. THat's about all we've talked about this week.

I don't think I could work with someone who is a home brewer. We would be fired for brewing at work!

We've both been to the HBS on the clock, bottled a batch of beer( without drinking any, of course) on the clock, and planned the conquest of our area through microbrewing. Only thing stopping us is that we don't want to give up our jobs to brew beer. Not when the Company subsidises all these brewing activities!

A peer of mine is a brewer as is a guy that works for me. Another guy that works for me makes his own wine.

There is a lot of wasted time going on. I normally bring in samplers for the guys that work for me that do not brew as well. I am thinking of having a "Brew-In" this spring if my friends want to hike their equipment over.

I work with about 300 people and there are at least 5 of them that I know are homebrewers. I was kind of surprised about that living here in Oklahoma, but then I got to thinking, this state had a lot of moonshiners back in the day and this is a pretty logical out come of that.

Plus, there is quite a German population there. I lived in Tulsa from the time I was two until I was 13 and there were a lot of Germans (I'm 1/3 German myself). Today, I understand Tulsa has one of the best Oktoberfests in America! I'd like to go to it someday and relive my childhood at the same time!

Back on topic , I work in an office with about 60 people, about 60/40 male to female ratio. I have coworkers who see me reading BYO and are curious. A few will tell a story of how they "tried that with some buddies once back in college and it tuned out..." But no serious takers.

Haven't heard that, but maybe I'll try it out. I go to one out in the small town of Choctaw, OK that is very European and a very good time.
