My wife bought me my original homebrewing kit and has always been a huge supporter.  As an example...we're working on a bathroom remodel.  She wanted to get a custom made fused glass sink.  Very arty, very expensive...so expensive that I didn't ask how much.  If that's what she wants, that's what she deserves.  She brought home the prototype and I was astounded to see that she'd had the artist make glass hop leaves and cones and set them into the sink!  WOW!!!!

Cool!  Post some pictures for us when you can.

Yeah, it is.  I'm an unbelievably lucky guy to have been married to her for over 30 years.

And 'bridal' shower --> bride's ale.  The new bride would sell her beer in order to purchase what was needed for the household.
This is new today . . .

It was the first I'd heard of using ale that way, so now I have to figure out how to work it into conversation. ;D

Much in the same way that I constantly try to work the phrase "cock ale" into everyday conversation.
