Default mention homebrewing during an interview?

I have mixed feelings about this. On one hand it is an interesting hobby and could make you stand out, on the other hand, it could make you stand out...... as an alcoholic.

Personally, I wouldn't unless I was interviewing for a brewery position, then it could be a huge plus.

An alcoholic brings a keg to the interview, a hobbiest shares his interest.

I told the Pastor Nominating Committee I started a brewery and they hired me.

Well, that may be true in your world.

Mine, I am afraid of getting in trouble with the mental health people if I say that I drink more than 1 beer a day. No kidding, it is actually a question on our yearly health exam. 1 beer a day? Come on.....

I believe you. What a strange time we live in, where some believe people can't be trusted to be responsible. Now drunk weathermen could be a real problem, but Dude, I think you can handle at least two beers a day.

The prudent thing is to say as little as possible I suppose.

I want to move and be part of that congregation! I work at my church doing music, but homebrewing isn't something I necessarily advertise, but It's not a secret either.

I told my doctor I drank a pint or two a day & he plotzed! I then realized he was a GenX and was thinking hard liquors. I added, ALE not booze.

I never mentioned clubs or affiliations on my resume or during interviews, except for professional and profession-related organizations.

I told my Doc I drank 32oz a day and he said go right ahead, it was good for you.

He also said that the dark porters snd stouts I like are really good for you.

I consider it a reccomendation.

Cheers,

that's pretty much what I thought. I just pictured them asking me what my hobbies are and just blurting out homebrewing......oh, the interview is over? Well, thank you for your.... :SLAM!:
