Thankfully, I'm a better brewer than I am a hunter or angler. Otherwise I'd be hungry and thirstyI can't believe people spend 5 hours playing golf. It costs twice as much, it pisses you off, and all you have to show for it is a bad back.
My other hobbies are fly fishing and reading. As with brewing, I get much for my toil.
But for most of my hobbies, the journey is more important to me than the destination. I think I enjoy brewing even more than I do drinking beer.
