#145 You refer to the laundry room as 'the brewery' - even if its just to see your wife roll her eyes.

#148 You get "emergency" beer phone calls from other brewers you know needing ingredients/equipment or C02 at the last minute.

If your wife uses White Labs vials to take salad dressing for her work lunch.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

...your brother emails you to say he found some wild hops growing when he was scouting for archery season and you feel like Jed Clampett when he struck oil with his shotgun.

you spend $70k on a house addition because "the family needs more room" but the only part you ever use is the "workshop" and that only for brewing.
Where the heck are we going?  And what's with this hand basket?

When you see this headline:

"NH sale features EKG of Armstrong's moon heartbeat"

and the first thing that comes to mind is East Kent Goldings.

I was dropping my son off at a friends, went in to meet the parents, and saw some brewing equipment in the garage. I asked the guy about it, and my son turns to his friend with a huge sigh and says "Let's go. They will be talking beer for hours."
