When your brew-day beers are from one of your less than perfect batches, but you finish them off anyhow just because you made it and might learn something for next time.

When your boss at the restaurant asks before going to the kitchen supply store if there's anything he should pick up for the brewery.

When said boss has offered up their commercial kitchen for you to use on brew day, but you would rather use your own setup.

You have two big hobbies, your not sure which you've put more money into, and the other one is computer tech.

You're less concerned with giving away beers than you are about getting the empties back.

You see the show Craft Wars on the guide and wish it was about homebrew competitions.

My kids used to love doing this. The only part that sucked was when they insisted I try some of their "beer"

I've had the fire department and the police show up on seperate occasions. When they showed up they knew exactly what's going on, but I thought it was funny.

When you rescue a dog and name him Barley. Poor fella is 5 years old and has never had a family. He's been in the shelter his whole life. Hair is matted beyond belief and has a double ear infection. His luck is going to change now

When you drive around and see large metal tanks in industrial settings and on trucks and you think, "how could I use that to make beer, and how much could I make?
