When a package arrives and no one knows what it's for but they automatically put in your brewing area because "It's for Dad, it's probably for his brewery".

You think you're low on beer when you have less than a 6 month supply of homebrew ready to drink.

Mine go even one better.  When a package arrives, they call me at work and ask if there's anything in the box that needs to go in the fridge/freezer

... you install new shelves in the shop "to get some tools off the floor".  After sorting and organizing you realize the tools are all still on the floor but your brewing gear now all neatly on the shelving.

In addition you also notice that you still don't have enough room for all you brewing toys.
