That's what AC is for. Something about being in the south, AC is a must. I'll be in Bridgewater next month for a wedding but I'm going to be trapped in.

Wow!, I've read this whole thread and links.....just great stuff here.

too much I could add, I'll try and keep it short.
Living in PNW most people, even strict BMC drinkers have had a "good" beer and know what to expect. Most of my friends/family love what I have made. I was visiting w/ all my IL's in Seattle last weekend and brought a few bombers of my Stone XI clone. It had been in bottle just over a week, but they were eager to try, and I was proud how it turned out. They all have great taste in booze, whether wine, scotch or brew. Before heading to the bars, I asked who wanted to taste my homebrew, hands went up, I poured a few ounces for all. My MIL looked at what I was pouring and stated "oh I don't like porters, I like hoppy beers" She's a wino, so I told her to take a sniff. "ohhh, I smell hops" takes a sip SLAP! she smacks me right-up-side the face, "that **** is great!" She looks at her daugthers' glass (my wife), grabs it slams it and says "what? he's your husband, you have more at home" greatest compliment I will ever receive! We all rolled on the floor soo F'ing hard (except my wife) that my SIL actually peed her pants, (and I somehow got a picture of said pants peeing) which set off a chain reaction of laughter that lasted the whole weekend. I'm gonna brew this again and put the picture on the labels and it's gonna be called "Soo good you'll piss your pants" or something to that effect. Life is good!

I have also been quite happy in broadening some friends horizons in liking crazy things like hops, or well flavored beers. There is hope for humanity!

Not exactly a comment, but still made me die a little inside. SWMBO's long lost high school friends met us for dinner at Oggi's Pizza in San Diego. They ordered the beer sampler, even though they're not exactly "beer" drinkers. They liked the Hefeweizen sample ok, with the obligatory lemon wedge spritzed in. When they got to the pale ale, IPA, stout, and brown ale, they were holding their noses and basically drinking them like shots.

The killer part is when they ordered a bowl of lemons and proceeded to add them to all the above beers and then chug. Said it helped the taste

I'm sure you thought this at the time, but it kinda defeats the point of "sampling" the beers, huh?

The real difference (to me) comes down to whether or not you can function properly without it. Physical addictions are very real and different from person to person...a drug that you're used to having in large amounts can alter the physiology of your brain and produce serious withdrawal when trying to quit.

Having one or two after work ISN'T an issue if you can responsibly handle it.

my two cents

In their defense, were the beers they were trying any good. I have slammed a lot if "samplers" like they were shots. There is a lot of really bad beer in the world too.
