For me, when I tell someone I homebrew and the respond "Moonshinin' Nice!", makes me want to slap the **** out of someone. This is why only my good friends get to try my whiskey.

Pretty much everyone I have ever talked to about it says "that's really cool, how long have you been doing it?"

I have a friend who calls my homebrew (and all craft beer) "Yuppie Beer". I find that humorous because I picture most of you guys on this site as being Harley riding guys with beards, who make a living making stuff with your hands and enjoy fabricating brew stands in your garages, etc.

The irony is that I'm sure you Harley riding guys would consider me to be a "Yuppie".

"That must be a lot cheaper than buying beer!" If only that were the case...

What I hate to hear is “I had homebrew once and it was awful.” I usually say “you haven’t had mine.” Disbelieving stare. Some people think beer can’t be good unless it’s thin yellow and fizzy.
