Default brewing with real brewers

Next Wednesday I'm having a local brewery's Brewmaster and his assistant Brewmaster over. They loved my IPA and want to handout and make more. Pictures will be posted.

If they like your beer, they obviously think of you as a real brewer too. Speaking as someone who has worked in the industry in many capacities (packaging, brewer, consultant, etc), I can honestly say that most pro brewers have respect for home brewers. It's about the passion for beer, not the size of the kettle.

They were impressed with my system too. They were very impressed that I even have a pump. I'll be honest, it feels great to get their approval.

Awesome, brew on dude! Obviously you don't brew solely to seek their approval, but incidentally earning it is quite an accomplishment!

Yeah, I'm used to hearing that I have too much brewing junk around the apartment, so anything other than that is great.

I have to say this: If a pro brewer were to shun an amateur/homebrewer, he'd be doing himself a dis-service wouldn't he

I have a number of friends that are professional brewers, they always have great tips for homebrewers and love to hear stories.

That's the sign of a cool brewmaster / assistant. Neat story!
