The other day i let(forced) my friend try a bavarian hefeweizen i had made not too long ago. He said, if beer tasted like this i would drink it. This coming from someone who hates beer because all he knows is BMC.

what would you say is the best compliment youve gotten for your homebrew?

"Can I buy some next time you brew?" My response was, "No, but you're welcome to drink it with me."

- Ray Daniels, after I poured him a small glass of my IPA: "I LOVE this IPA. Can I have some more?"

Compliment #2 was appreciated a bit more than compliment #1!

"If you were brewing commercially, I'd give you two taps in the pub!" from a local pub owner.

A friend of mine who's a bit of a beer snob (especially about IPAs) once told me, when we were working at someone else's house, "I wish I had one of your IPAs right now."

Another guy who was an all-grain brewer when I was still doing partial mashes, drank one of my partial mash brews and said, "This tastes like a professional made it!"

The cans of Leinenkugel's had masking tape on them with JOHN'S printed in ink. Amy looked around me and said, "John is protective about his beer, isn't he?"
"I put that label on there. When company comes I want them to know the Leinie's is his, not mine."

From a friend who didn't really drink beer very often.. "Wow! This is straight up beer! I never knew homemade beer could taste this good!" After that one bottle he started drinking various craft beers on a regular basis.
