I have always felt my friends have had my beers to be nice. But I knew I made a good beer when my friends came over and passed up the Sierra Nevada and Sweet Waters and said do you have any of the SMaSH beer left.

I made a simple MO/Simcoe pale ale and they wanted more. I am now a proud homebrewer.

I know when I've made a good beer when I take a drink and say "Holy Mackeral that's good!" I almost never say that with a commercial beer.

when consistently drinkers fall to the ground in a full body spasmotic orgasm after sipping my beer for the first time. It happens quite often, which gets kind of annoying from the loss of spilled beer.

My wife did that after I made Yooper's DFH 60-minute clone. She normally hates American style IPAs, but the FWH + continuous hopping came out very smooth.

When I think it's good. I'm a terrible perfectionist and have had enough legitimately delicious beer to know what it tastes like. I'm a way harsher critic than anyone who tastes my beer, although that may change when I start competing.

When I think I have a good beer I give it to the bartenders / owner at my favorite joint. They're always honest and the last time I went there they said to run and grab another bottle and my whole nights tab would be paid. Now that's what I call a good beer.
