I don't have that problem; mine knits and spins yarn so she "gets" the wanting to have homemade stuff over storebought.

My wife is a beer drinker, so I am lucky there. She tries everything I make, and is starting to figure out what she likes most. She is starting to ask about how hoppy the beer is, since she really likes hoppy beers especially IPAs. It sure helps out when she is supporting the habit, I mean hobby of beer brewing.

As soon as mine realized I was serious about it and that I actually make a pretty good beer, she was right on board with the expenditures.

My husband is becoming quite a beer snob, and his favorite beers of all time include two of my homebrews- the MYbock and the Dead Guy clone. He loves most of my beers, but is not really much of an IPA fan. He'll "help" me drink a 16 ouncer or two, and then go back to the maltier beers. One of his favorite summer beers is a Fat Tire clone, so that's coming up soon.

To be honest, I'm almost glad that my wife doesn't drink beer. I mean, if she did, it'd be really nice that she'd probably be more interested in the brewing process, could possibly pretend to be intersdted a little longer when I blather on about mashing temps or whatever...

But if our household beer consumption were doubled, I honestly don't think I could find the time to keep supply even with demand. I can usually manage about 15-16 batches a year, which leaves room for giving some away, cellaring the big beers, etc. But finding a brew day every 3-4 weeks is challenge enough sometimes.

SWMBO used to drink more often in her younger years, but always gets a REALLY bad headache from alcohol, so she doesn't drink very much anymore. So far, I've yet to makt anything she likes, but she'll try a sip when I ask her too.

She generally likes miller light or amstel light, but she likes some of the fruit beers too. I'm working on her.

A few years back, when I first joined the board, the first few posts were asking what style I could make for my wife, who hated my brew. You all told me to make what I like and there would be more for me, since she wouldn't be drinking it. Well, I haven't really changed what I make, and swmbo's tastes have. Now I wish I was the only one in the house who liked my beer. I have to double my brewing.

Mine loves all beers - as long as they're Miller Lite. And really, she's been on a red wine kick lately so she rarely drinks beer.

I'm lucky. My girlfriend loves everything I brew and can really hold her own, as rdwj and Cheesefood can attest. She has brewed three partial mashes on her home stovetop in the last couple of years and usually is there to help me when I brew.

When we met, she was a Bud drinker, but she soon came to loathe the stuff. She is a hop-head. If there is an IPA on the beer menu, that is what she will order. If there isn't one listed, she'll ask if one is available. Her favorite part of brew day is smelling the hop additions!
