My status as the Black Sheep isn't just beer related. We live in an area where many people put on airs and I really don't care to play "keep up with the Jones"

-I cut my own grass and trim my own trees (everyone else uses gardeners)
-I own a motorcycle (unfair stereotyping)
-We drive 13+ year old vehicles (that run perfectly, depreciate very little and are in our garage every night)
-And now...I brew (and drink) in my garage

I keep my house up very nicely, so I am not that nightmare neighbor. However, I don't spend money on things that aren't important to me (brewing is important)

Oh yeah!!! My tower looks like a meth cooker and I smoke food, keep different live animals and work in a closed shop nobody can see into. The dirt bikes, 4 wheelers and other adult toys all come out and we hang around the bonfire, cook chicken and throw the bones back in the fire. All of our neighbors want a city yard in the country, we left the woods and planted a wildflower meadow for the critters to hide and eat in. Fuffff em, I was here first so I will keep my MX track and toys, you don't like it? Then you MOVE!!!

1/2 of my neighbors can't stay away when I open the garage. The other 1/2 walk by and look but never say more than hello. After helping me brew for a while, the sheriff across the street now has 4 taps and a cold room on his back patio.

When neighbors do stop by, it's always "wow! you make your own beer?!" "wow, you have chickens?!" "Oooh, I love your garden!"

I wish my neighbors homebrewed too. Maybe I can get them doing it. A lot of retirees and such though so the early 30's whippersnapper may not be that effective. An to top it off I am wishing my garage pointed towards the street rather that opens out of the back of my house at the bottom of a hill.

Even in my urban neighborhood, people give me the stink-eye when I say I brew beer. It's really not that strange. Come on now... maybe it's because I look 18 to them.
