If I saw someone ACTUALLY distilling, or cooking meth in their garage, I'd report it too. If it turned out he was just making his own cough syrup, does that make me a "prick," or just ignorant regarding the techniques and equipment involved in making your own cough syrup?

That said, I doubt this was an isolated incident, and I'm sure you have other perfectly good reasons for forming such a negative opinion of this particular neighbor.
2nd time he has called me making beer in my front yard. He also dumped my peace offering beers in front of me. As well as calling "code enforcement" because my boat and trailer were on my driveway and not on the side of the house(trailer tongue has to be behind forward most facing wall of house) Only enforced "IF" someone complains. So I may be a bit jaded. He has since tried to petition my other neighbors to make it illegal to make alcohol in our area(lucky were not in a HOA) I heard that he only got 2 signatures out of the 36 homes in our subdivision

^ If you're not in an HOA, who the heck is enforcing all those "codes"?

Crap like you're putting up with reminds me why I live where critters outnumber people...

Cheers!

It's an old(County) rider code to keep people from having RV's and 5th wheels camped out over the winter. Snowbirds would have to stay in RV parks and campsites. His next door neighbor has his boat in the driveway "BUT" no one has complained so there it sits.

Neighbors sometimes suck. That's what privacy fences are for.

Got a great comment on some brew-related equipment today. My Dad came by to take me to lunch with my Grampie and uncle, so I was showing off the brewery-in-progress.

He didn't say much, but he did keep taking the lid off my massive boil kettle and looking inside it. When I opened up the ferment chamber-in-progress (which is doubling as "extra brewing crap storage"), he pointed at the 2 liter soda bottle filled with water that I've been using to monitor the temperature fluctuations in the closet and said..

"Is that a bong?"

"Is what a bong?" I asked.

"That." Pointing at the soda bottle.

"No, Dad. That's a soda bottle."

"Oh." He paused. "It looks like a bong."

"You just like saying "bong", don't you?"

He just looked at me.

lol

Sounds like he's hinting at something to me... sounds like a Workaholics scene.

From Bud Light drinkers.... "What is it that I'm tasting?" - referring to hops....

My response is simply.. "Beer".

A recent interaction with a bartender at a pizza joint that serves some local brews.

Me: what's new?
Her: We've got a new beer from Martin House called River House.
Me: Oh yeah? What style is it?
Her: it's their Texas Scion
Me: a Saison?
Her: nah. They call it a Texas-style Scion
Her: *hands me a promo card clearly stating "River House Saison"*
Me: What the hell, pour me a Scion.
