When you start your batchly ritual of delabling bottles and you realize you don't have to delable any bottles.

When one of your deal-breaking criteria for renting a new condo is if the patio has sufficient air circulation to brew in

I picked up a few 6-packs of Tiger beer at a happy hour. Not only do they have the easiest to remove labels that I've ever encountered (they practically fall off just from condensation while you're drinking it!), but they have "tiger" embossed on the shoulder. That somehow makes it cooler.

When you notice that the sleeves on one of your favourite hoodies looks like it's been eaten away by acid, puzzled you think 'how did that happen...?' and then realise that it's from your habit of liberally spraying brew gear with Starsan!

Note to self: wear a T-shirt.

When one of the Lieutenants on the local navy base considers your IPA the best retirement gift he was given and it's elusiveness (being a homebrew and all) and recent reputation at a local beer fest makes him put your beer at celebrity status. Mmmm.......Badfish!!!

You endure two consecutive weekends of children's birthday parties (that happen during college football), shopping for kids clothes at a madhouse church consignment store, wake at 5 am to sneak out to buy fresh flowers for wedding anniversary...just to brew 10 gallons of Willamette SMaSH that SWMBO likes and will not share.
