I'm sure most homebrewers have to deal with this, but I have been noticing a lot more people who have been nicer to me since they have tasted one of my homebrews. My co-workers especially.

This is obviously one of the perks and problems of creating high quality homebrews on a regular basis.

Since I started kegging my beer my house has been the hang out place.

I can only imagine that homebrewers across the globe have experienced the same.

I definatly have more "friends", so I brew more & I make more "friends", and so i brew more & I make more...........it's a vicious cycle that never ends.

Cheers

I had a beer money jug on top of our coolers this 4th of july... almost no one drank, and even more people didn't put money in the jar.... we got a total of......... $0.00 from the moochers...

My nieghbors have been telling me to put a beer money jar by the kegerator but I haven't done it yet. They are starting to feel guilty after they kicked 3 kegs in one night...

I don't tell them I brew. I just tell them I got it from a friend who must remain anonymous. When I walk by my fermenters and bottles, I pause, rub my hands together, and in my best Mr. Burns imitation, whisper, "Exxcellent!"
