You know, there's a fallacy among homebrewers. It's that other people actually want to drink our stuff. It might be true in a few cases, but for the majority of the population they want something that the liquor store sells.
It's partly marketing, and partly that a lot of people just think we're making swill. It's pretty hard to convince otherwise. I've given what I consider to be very good cider (even my wife thinks its good, and she's picky. People smile and say it's good, but you can tell they're thinking that it didnt' come from a store.
Have a party, enjoy your efforts.
PS. I've had a ****ty day and 3 beer and half a litre of very good 16 month old mead. Might be the pessimism creeping out...
