Back in the day I won a couple GABF metals. When I left the brewery the medals stayed. I recently discovered I can get my own metals for $38.75 each. Does it seem like an arogant thing to buy or should I go for it?

I'd want them if I won them. I've spent 40 bucks on a lot sillier things than that

You earned them, you should have them. I don't think it's arrogant at all. I think we all take pride in our beers, and having those skills recognized is a happy thing!

This kind of an area is the best place for survival because you do have good, basically intelligent, hard working, decent people and they're all armed to the teeth... and that's my kind of people.

I think you should buy them.

BP, you won those awards. You earned them. It's not sinful to have a little bit of pride in your accomplishments.

Now, if you start requiring your visitors to bow down and kiss the medals before they are allowed passage into your home, THAT might be taking it a bit far

Uunnnleeeeesssssss, you become the brewpontiff and start wearing a way to large tall white hat. Then i suppose everyone coming in to your home will have to kiss the medals.

HEY, you could then DIY yourself a confessional out of an armoire and people would then drop money into a jar, a jar that would fund brewing.
