I try to share my homebrew on a regular basis and over the weekend was no exception. I went camping at TRF and our neighbors got to try my home made cider and my double IPA. They liked it a lot, so did my friends that came a long. The neighbors were so impressed that they cooked us some great fajitas and then chorizo tacos in the morning. The homebrew was a great ice breaker in this case and my friends and I got some great food out of it.
And the reassurance that my home brew doesn't suck is also a plus.
