just got into brewing but i love to make things for people to enjoy.

i have a small business i run mostly as a hobby crocheting hats and making apparel
i like soap making
and i have a girlfriend which takes up a lot of my time trying to help her save the world.

I guess i would also like to add small business development to this list. right now I'm working in an office as a research assistant for small business development. it's fun seeing something you've worked on become something people enjoy and depend on. I feel like i want to start my own business some day but I'm too lazy for that so i figure i'll just help other people do it and live vicariously through all my clients.

My biggest is amateur sportscar racing. I race an old Porsche in a Spec series (single model and identicaly prepared with limited modifications) for Porsche 944's and 924s's. I'm in the blue car, #42, racing at Sear's Point/Infineon Raceway:



Really close racing (the guy in the red is about to spin):



Yes, I do all my own maintenance on the race car and all my other cars, with the occasional assistance from friends and fellow racers.


I also do a lot of rock climbing (primarily indoor).

Also, social dancing, primarily Blues, Swing, and Argentine Tango.



I used to sail a lot. Ferried a boat through the Caribbean and raced on my college sailing team.

I have my pilots license, but haven't flown for years. I need cheaper hobbies, like racing old Porsches.

I'm seeing a lot of hobbies in common on this thread.

Cooking and woodworking makes sense, since they are about creating something out of raw materials for people to enjoy --just like homebrewing.

Others I see are common would be guns/shooting and motorcycling. Does that tie into hombrewers' traits at all? Or is that coincidence?

Good thread!

Lots of awesome hobbies!

Just getting into brewing but I imagine that's going to be the main hobby soon.

Gardening, trying to produce as much food as we need, hopefully next year I'll get closer to that goal.

Taking care of a small slice of heaven, chickens, goats, dogs, small orchard...

Freshwater planted aquariums, used to be saltwater but I missed the green of the plants so I've gone back to FW, cheaper than SW too!

Helping my wife get a soapmaking business off the ground hoping we can grow it enough to support us so I don't have to leave every day to make someone else rich...

Oh and shooting squirrels... rats with fluffy tails.... thieving conniving little....

The squirrels aren't a problem here, it's the chipmunks. I have several in, and around, my garden, but they're too quick to shoot. The dogs don't even bother to chase them, they'll run a few feet, and when the chipmunk runs, they stop. They have several burrows around the yard, and I've seen them jump down one, and come up in another one. I bet the ground under my yard has more holes than swiss cheese.

Sorry,

Other than homebrewing I'm into

Collecting casino chips
Photography
Taking long car rides
Spending time with the family

I'd really like to get into small scale woodworking. I'd love to make homemade tap handles.

Good thread indeed. I think the Cooking/woodworking go with homebrewing for sure. They are all DIY things...Just like the DIY thread is one of the most popular on HBT.

Guns/shooting...not so sure if they go well with beer or drinking at all, however, they are a blast...

Knucks to all the climbers even if you climb in a gym....lol (there are none where I live otherwise I would have a membership)

I have an unhealthy obsession with my lawn.

Finding more ways to anger SWMBO

Anything Razorbacks.....
