I live in area where any alcohol is evil. Even though the Bible often mentions alcohol and our country was founded by beer drinkers and brewers but facts have no place in their world only beliefs grounded in falsehood.

Move my way bro. It's obvious you have no business living where you are. In my state I think its illegal to sell Bibles.

It may be the old mentality of "what will the neighbors say". So, I think when the guys see how cool home brewing is, the quality of the results and how my wife is ok with my 4 tap fridge, the men love it and the wives don't.
Yea I got lucky with my wife. She comes from a small town that was dry till about 6 years ago. She has an open mind about everything so she will try new things. Which includes beer apparently haha.

There was a time when I woke up in strange places in my youth and believing in a few of those falsehoods may have been beneficial.

I don't have neighbors any more. My 17 acres butts up against the far side of their 40 acres but I wouldn't call them neighbors. Maine is nice that way. However the people who live in the other side of the river (widest river in the state) can see me brewing on my back deck. Kind of like how I can see their kids smoking dope down by the riverbed. Again, it's Maine and cares are not given by either of us

I used to live in a trashy neighborhood in the city, in a 3rd floor apartment no less so I did get a lot of looks, and sideways glances when I was lugging 5 gallon batches, and gear up from the driveway.

Just brew on its not any of the neighbors business what you are doing.

My "destroy the house" kids range from 1-7 years old, so they can't reach the taps yet.

I plan on putting tap locks on, but for now the (yes it's "finished") basement dwelling children are very good at staying out of my section (where the toys aren't).

I'm hoping the teenage years I'll get my house back to myself (mostly) and they'll just destroy their rooms. That's how my siblings and I were (.......for the most part).

My neighbors haven't said anything about my brewing, if they've even noticed me doing it. My meth lab on the other hand...

At least you don't have to worry about waking the neighbors.
