You know you're obsessed with homebrewing when...
You don't bother asking the server about the beer, you just ask for the beer list.

Classic example:
Me, "What kinds of beer do you have of tap?"
Server, "We have them all!"
Me, "You have them all?"
Server, "Yep!  We've got Michelob, Michelob Light, Bud, Bud Light, and Natural light!"
Me, "Damn!  How lucky am I!"

You tell your 6-year-old son you plan to have a dark beer with supper, and he says, "Like a Munich Dunkel?"  And then he's disappointed when it's a bottled beer and he doesn't get to pull the tap handle. 

He even knows how to pull the handle halfway at the end to "put the cap on."   ;D

The "we've got all of them" line always makes me ask for something I know they don't have.

In a previous life I briefly worked at a distributorship that carried Schlitz, Old Milwaukee, and Gallo Wines.

It was then that I learned that Schlitz is the German word for skunk piss.   :o
