Ok, some things are gonna change real fast. Today was the last straw. I just get home with two of my buddies, from the brewery picking up my grain / hop order, of all places. In the meantime, dude number three stopped by with his wife, and they were in the driveway talking with Holly when I got in. He holds up a growler 3/4 full and says he, I blew your keg. I thought he was joking. Turns out, him and his wife had two pints each, then filled the growler, kicking my last keg!! Oh, but he left 7$ on the kegerator.
I know the dudes don't think they are being a$$hats. It's just the Idaho culture here. What mine is theirs, and whats theirs, I really don't want.
Next brew day, I got two guys lined up to help. And, I am seriously thinking of starting a mug club. Ten bucks scores you a personal mug. You're welocome to come over and drink free beer from your mug, anytime, all you can drink, at 3$, maybe 5$ a session. I thinks that's fair. three bucks for alll the free beer you can drink, and it's not Bud. You figure one poker night with three dudes here, and that keg is paid for. Next weekend, a propane refill, next weekend, a c02 exchange. Some week I might feel generous, and the rounds are on me. Sometime I might be extra kind and let them fill a growler. But, at least it will put thee brakes on this deal.
If that fails, I will juststop at their house each night at dinner time, with a fork, plate, and a to go box.
