Have kinda the opposite problem. 3 or 4 buddies that quaff my IIPAs and Blacker than death Stouts like they were water.

Actually bought some Killians the other day to feed the trolls so that my kegs wouldn't bear the whole brunt. They like good beer, so Killians is OK. Not great, but passable.

Yup it's definitely a slippery slope. My buddy and I both brew, and if we're together at one of our houses on a Friday night, it's scary how much destruction we can wreak on the homebrew supplies.

We tried brewing 10 gal. batches together to reduce our time and increase our stocks, but we couldn't make it work--either I'm way too anal about santization/timing/measurement, or he's way too indifferent, because we were driving each other crazy. Instead, I just make sure I keep my stocks high enough, and we usually try to switch to commercial brews after the first three or four to limit the damage.

I host a poker game every few months. I have to have Labbatt's Blue Lite for 1/2 the crowd, who won't even try anything else. The other half will drain a 5-gallon keg of Amber Ale in a few hours.

Tasting cups are a must. I keep a supply of the plastic ones when I have parties. I don't mind someone dumping 2 ozs of beer, but dumping a full pint is painful to watch. I also make it a point to have some Blonde Ale on hand. That's always a hit.

I usually hide the really good stuff like IPAs and Reds. Most people really don't appreciate them. I make them available to a select few. I'm always happy when someone asks for them though.

the only beers I give out to friends/family in bulk are my session ales which everyone drinks. I save the stouts, porters, and IPA's for my craft beer loving friends/family. Why waste a good brew on someone who doesn't appreciate it?

the beauty of most friends only liking your session ales is that those beers are much cheaper and easier to make!

I need 2 more kegs so I can do a "Lite" Pale ale and just keep it on hand.

I refuse to Lager anything just for some BMC lover.

If my session ale is too flavorful, then GO EFF YOURSELF.

Biermuncher's "Cream of 3 Crops" Cream Ale recipe on these forums . I've made 5 batches of it so far, 11 gallons for a wedding and everyone drinks it, even wine drinkers! Cost is about $25 to brew 11 gallons including the yeast and propane costs for AG if you buy your grain in bulk.

I actually enjoy drinking the lighter session home brews most of the time as I can have 3 or 4 and not fall asleep! Also great summer ale for yard work!

I saw this thread just in time. Lots of family coming over tomorrow. I brought 3) 6 packs of different styles. Blonde ale, Fat tire clone and a pumpkin ale. I will give out samples it would break my heart to see my beer go down the drain.

Lesson #1: Don't cast pearls before swine. If someone isn't going to appreciate it, don't offer it.

However, that type of behavior is incredibly rude. I guess it is just the way I was brought up, but I would always praise and try to finish whatever a host offers me, and thank them afterwards.
