I don't even label myself when I talk to folks about it. I just tell them I make my own beer. With less than two dozen batches under my belt I'm not even comfortable calling myself a "brewer" period.

Mad scientist or eccentric comes to mind though...

I meet a lot of people with negative views of homebrew. The most common story I hear when I tell people I brew at home is "Oh yeah? I knew a guy way back when..." (Their body language tells me they thought he was a wacko) "...and he used to make the most terrible beer..." Then I give the inevitable spiel about the importance of sanitation, etc. Most people I've met over 40 have negative experiences with homebrew although my friends are all for it. I just try to act nonchalant about it and say I brew beer.
