Last weekend, my Busch Light drinking brother-in-law came down for a visit. I was drinking my hideous vanilla stout. Ya know, he asked for some. Grabbed up an empty jar ( really, we're in NC, afterall) and I poured him half a pint. He drank it and asked for more. This is the worst brew I've ever made ! He says " It kinda grows on you, don't it?" . A few bottles later, we're at the local bar. Mrs. Monkey drove us. Had my first Newcastle Brown. Well, half of it. I spilled the first half on the bar . Too drunk to taste it, really. Came back to the Casa and we sat out in the shed and played guitar the rest of the night.
It was a good evening. It was his first contact with homebrew. He's asking questions now. What would it have been like if it had been a good brew? Do I get points in the Great Brewery in the Sky for this?
Where in the Hell is that S. Faced icon when I need it?
