You know you're into homebrewing when you think homebrew makes a great Christmas gift.

The real estate agent my wife and I used is our club president. My new house has a garage to brew in temporarily, space for a shed (Brewery/bar) and a barrel aging room in the basement. Gotta plan for the beer.

I'm new to these forums (although I read them regularly), but couldn't help but chime in here.  I do that to such an extent that my wife mentions the potential for a brew room before I do......

I've definitely noticed this going on:

When every friend, relative or mere acquaintance you are with says to the bartender before you order your first beer - "He makes his own beer, so don't ask him about the beer and don't expect him to order without asking at least 5 questions about your beer"

Always, they funny thing is, after tasting the beer, you know more about it than the server most of the time. :-\

When you see a 150qt Igloo at The Sam's Club and conjure up visions of a group Barleywine brew. I almost bought that sucker...;)  :))

Your wife(a nurse) understands why you stayed up til 3 AM bottling homebrew on the day of your double hernia surgery.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

No kidding. I love it when the server describes (for example) any stout that they brew as "kind of like Guinness".  I don't find sweet, export, American, RIS as remotely like an Irish stout. Just semantics I guess ;)  .
