My boss gave me permission to be on the AHA forum at work as much as I like.   ;)

You see this picture on Facebook and think, "Han Solo just won a Gold medal in the American Ale category"



Gary sure looked a lot shorter back then and had more hair, huh?

you put off getting your cholesterol checked because you have a batch to keg, yeast to start, grain bill to mill, and hops to weight before brew day and you only have three days off.

You make special trips home from work to check on the beer you put in the fermentor the day before and feel like a kid when you see the Krausen.
What's the worst that could happen?  Beer?

I had this happen, I was talking to my wife about how excited I was that I got the water book. She was confused until she saw the cover and said, "Oh, its about beer, that makes sense."

Exactly  :)   She's actually really supportive of it but is dumbfounded I spend so much time reading about it.  The kids are just dumbfounded.

You triple-rinse every beverage container you empty.

I was dropping my son off at a friends house to spend the night, and wanted to meet the parents. When we pulled up, I saw brewing equipment in the garage, and immediately asked the dad about it. My son turns to his friend, and says "Let's go. They're gonna be here for hours talking about beer."

your work internet is down all morning and the first thing you do when it comes up is to visit the AHA forum.

You just keep track of everything in barrels because it's easier.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.
