I know I am. I am an IT dept. geek/nerd, with all those silly certifications, as well as a ham radio operator, radio control hobbyist, and I honestly believe that DEVO was the greatest live act evar!

I brew because.

I like good beer.
I like to be as self sufficient as possible.
I don't like giving money to the government to waste.


Because I can.
Have a beer on me.

I vote yest, because in my opinion EVERYONE is a nerd. I've been around all types, and even the bad aZZ bikers and guys with felony convictions, etc. have a lot of nerd in them. Yup, even the "cool" are "nerds!

Brewing itself does not make someone a nerd. "Nerd" are not inherently attracted to brewing, IT, engineering, etc. any more than other fields or hobbies. But, I will say there are different levels of nerdiness, and some people fit the "classic profile" of "nerd" much more than others.

Primary - California Common -finally!
Secondary - nothing, back after year plus hiatus
Keg carbing & conditioning - nada
Drinking - store bought: Loose Cannon IPA, Wachusett IPA.
On deck: Trying to decide (beer); wine kit likely (red wine)

I was a Nerd before the Werd.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
