“We’re homebrewers” (1 Comment)

Lately we have been getting estimates for some work we want to do on the house. This means that we have strangers who come through the house when they are giving us quotes. More than one has noticed the excessive number of beer bottles in the kitchen (probably somewhere 30+ and we have about 6 wine bottles as well), the room in the basement with a large sign that says ‘BEER’ which has about 150+ beers in it, and other various signs which would make them think that either we have been on a bender or that we just had a party. They dont say anything, but rather stare every now and then at Chris and I with a look of awe for ‘how the hell do you drink all of that and not have a beer gut?'(ok, really who ever thinks like that!) or a sad ‘you must be drownin’ your sorrows’ look. When we notice this we usually give them the disclaimer “we’re homebrewers”.  Today, we forgot and after the guy left we looked around and thought–  as the house was in a bit of disarray from the holiday I am guessing he must have assumed that we had a party (I have never been thankful for a mess before). But such is the story of living with homebrew: sometimes you feel like an artist and sometimes you feel like you are making moonshine in your bathtub.

      People aways think it’s strange when I say I have three beers on tap.
