Had a family party at my house a few weeks ago and along with the Bud and Bud-lite the in-laws usually drink I served my Robust Porter and my Brown Ale. At the end of the night my wife's (very wasted) Bud-lite loving sister in-law comes over to tell that she loved the Brown Ale and that it didn't taste like **** when it got warm. Just had to smile and say thanks

awesome! I love the good compliments. I made 15 gallons for a friend's wedding and people were totally thrilled with it. My beer was gone quick like, and all the other beer was left at the end of the day.

My highest compliment ever was when my dad told me that my cream ale "was almost as good as MGD" in a surprised voice. He hated the kolsch, though. It was way "too hoppy".

Mine was at a brew club meeting where one "beer-hating" woman had so much of my Mild, that her BF insisted on getting the recipe.

mine was from a family friend who recently saw one of my finished brews for the first time. I poured some into a glass and, "DAMN that smells like beer. I mean DAMN" lol.

Homebrew > their face!

I normally expect Lite drinkers to LOVE my beer or HATE it. So those guys don't count for me. It's YOU GUYS!!! that I work on.

Lite drinkers are like people that have eaten ONLY plain white bread all their lives , nothing else and you give them a P&J sandwich. They will LOVE it or HATE it.

Hence the new Coors Lite can I saw advertised on the tube; the mountains in the picture turn blue when it is cold enough to drink.

My brother in-law bought some. I had to put the beer in the freezer in order to get it cold enough to activate!!! That there is some cold beer!
