That is freaking hysterical !   #5 is extra good.  Everybody who has ever homebrewed can relate.

They didn't have my favorite comment:  Will it get you drunk?
Well...I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer

The beeriest kind.

Funny, but I'm surprised they didn't include the bathtub comment. "So do you just mix it up in your bathtub?"

Luckily I moved into a neighborhood where there was already a homebrewer, John. Now when the neighbors walk by and I'm brewing, I get comments like "You're going to outdo John!" or "Givin John a run for his money!" It's pretty cool to already have the "meth-stigma" broken down AND have a little neighborhood joke going.

Yes, "Crystal Eth" is what I tell my neighbors.

I'm getting tired of people telling me I'll brew them a batch if they buy me the "ingredients". I say make your own effing beer!

Follow that with a simple, "I'm not sure you realize how much time and effort was put into what you are drinking right now." I'll bet you won't get many more of those demands!  ;)

Same here.  Everybody wants me to bring them beer that I made.  Like Charlie says in the Zymurgy ad, "This is my beer - make your own."
Another thing that seems clueless to me is how many people see my brewery and call it a still.
And while we're on the subject, do you ever get tired of the question, "What is your favorite beer?"

We should start another thread just for curmudgeons like me.
