I was wondering if this happens to other people.

My Boss, loves my beer, so I regularly make beer for people in my Unit, and for Unit parties.
Well when we do go out to other places, and my boss itroduces me to people., I always hear the same thing.

" OH, you are the guy that makes his own beer, I / We have been invited over to your house to try it, but just havent had the time, sorry about that, we can we come over?"

I mean seriously, it is a nice compliment, but do you have to invite everyone?

I guess I am going to have a cover charge to get into my shop where the keggerator is.
No matter how much money you THINK you are saving by brewing beer, you are still just pissing money away

Never, just about all of my friends are homebrewers, so they push their own brews.

+1. I'm not home a lot with work and I actually have a hard time getting rid of beer sometimes because most of my friends brew their own. It's a problem I never expected to have. But it saves me time as I don't have to brew as often which isn't necessarily a good thing either.

SWMBO's old friend is a huge fan of some of my beers. The IPA that I did a while back was his favorite. He would drop by with random people to try some and I went through the batch much too quick. Although, through him I did get some tap house owners to try a few ales that were pretty well received.

Nothing wrong with asking for small donation to help recover the cost of brewing. It DOES cost some money you know.

Most of my friends rave about it, and they enjoy drinking large quantities of it. I consider it a compliment. Good thing I brew a lot.
