I just did a top ten signs your a beer snob post on my blog and had alot of fun, so I was wondering what other people would come up with. Here are my ten to start out.


1 Your wife thought you were to pretentious and left you for a wine snob

2 You spend so much time sniffing the beer that it looks like your trying to drink through your nose

3 You believe that Europe is the only place good beer comes from

4 You actually enjoy drinking beer from Dogfish Head

5 Youíve never bought a six pack for less then $12

6 When the beer at a party costs less then a days wages you sit and pout, then spend the rest of the night lamenting that this kind of thing would never happen in Europe

7 Even official beer judges envy your ability to write a book on your opinion for every single beer you try

8 You donít drink anything that isnít thick enough to float a quarter on

9 You mortgaged your home so you can afford beer for the month

10 You go to a resteraunt and order wine because the only thing they have that comes close to your definition of beer is Blue Moon

I'm trying to figure out the fear of the period.

I'm beyond beer snob and trying to obtain EAC status.

I thought I was a beer snob, but some of those are a bit out there for even me.

I do sniff beer a lot and it drives my wife nuts.

Your parties only last two hours because your friends pass out after three beers.

You disown a family member/childhood friend because they're an ardent BMC drinker.

There is a time and a place for every beer.

I don't want to decant a RIS when fishing in July.

My friends (who are also brewers and won't touch BMC unless it is free) always snicker when I stick my nose down in my glass and take a couple of deep inhales... All part of the experience, IMO.

How about that you actually spent money on a book called "Tasting Beer"?
