I coordinate the day-to-day care of cancer patients in the chemotherapy area (infusion) and am the PM triage operator at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.

It took me a long time to come to this position. I've come from being the son of restaurant owners to a college student, to an information research specialist in college, to a tour guide in Italy, to an overachieving salesperson, to a recognized makeup artist, to an executive, then cut back down to a student again, and cut even further down to working at a kosher pizza restaurant....can you believe it?

I Love my Job and feel blessed every day to be able to contribute what I can. I also love the fact that brewing and the homebrewing society really brings us all together.

I've met numerous engineers, social workers, lawyers, construction dudes, guys who work for trucking companies, insurance agents, housewives! other people who work in healthcare, even waiters and cooks who have discovered the hobby of homebrewing. And I have to admit, we all share the same passion for this hobby.

Even more importantly, we all love making beer. We love making things with our hands. We're all proud when we bring a pint or bottle or growler of our product to someone...a friend, someone we want to share our efforts with. We beam when they take that first sip and realize that...yeah, this stuff is just as good if not BETTER than the stuff they're use to.

In awkward social situations we find that when others find out that we're brewers that suddenly the awkwardness disappears. Suddenly we get bombarded with questions about our craft and hobby. And I could say that each one of us is more than happy to introduce this fine craft to others.

This community we have is extraordinary. There are not many other hobbies or sports out there that have such an open, warm, and constructive group as ours. In competitions I applaud my peers, I'm proud of what they stand for and for how far we've brought this hobby from just 10 years ago.

And what's the worse thing that can happen? You end up with beer.

Heartfelt post. Thank you for what you do. I'm familiar with the big C.

You're right IMHO! Brewers are good people in a lot of ways.

Cheers!

Dan

This. In fact, I sometimes find that when people learn about my hobby (homebrewer); a prior career (brewmaster at a brewpub), and current career (insurance fraud investigator), I become the second most popular guy in the room.

Of course, if you want to be the most popular, dress up as Santa Claus and walk into a room of 4-6 y/o kids.
