It's a social gathering with beer! I'd go to a lactation meeting if there was promise of beer. or cake for that matter. The social aspect doesn't even come into play.

My husband is the same way, although I've not really pressured him to come to social activities.

He did go to ONE brewday over the last year, partly because I bribed him by saying we could stop at a major gardening center on the way. He had a nice time, because he actually knew some of the guys there from work a few years ago (the meeting was about 100 miles away). But I don't anticipate him being willing to go to another anytime soon.

My husband loves beer, and he's got a great palate, but he has 0 interest in brewing. He supports my obsession with it, though, so that's fine with me.

Ayup. Can still see re-runs on OETA (public TV) here in OKC. And, IIRC, even Netflix streams the series.

I am the female version of Red Green, complete with Canadian accent. I'm always fixing something, and it usually involves duct tape. And a butter knife. I asked for a new propane torch for Christmas, but Bob is hesitant to provide more flammable things after that last event.

He'll get used to not having eyebrows. But he may twitch a bit around open flames.

Around here, it's hoppy beers. My wife hates sweeter beers like those or Belgians. Gotta be 70+ IBU for her.
