Default hot and red face??

I enjoy brewing my own beer, but I've noticed that when I drink it, I get
A strange sensation on my face. It goes red and feels hot.
Strange I know, but anyone else get this? If so why?

Sounds like alcohol flush syndrome, AKA Asian flush. Does this only happen when drinking homebrew?

Pretty much yes. Strange.

By any chance are you embarrassed by your homebrew? JK! Google alcohol flush. I have no idea why it would only happen with your beer. In the end, it's not harmful, not an allergy. Just a genetic deficiency of an enzyme. Hope this helps.

It might be an allergy, or you might have red mans syndrome. That is a simple niacin reaction from the niacin released by the yeast. I would have it checked, but if its red mans its not harmful, you just look sunburned, its called flushing.

I also heard it called rosatia by an old neighbor who had it.

That would happen to me when I drank any vodka that had any flavor but never regular vodka and occasionally with a craft beer it will happen I've noticed with bottles with heavier amounts of sediment.
