When you won't order a beer until after making a dinner selection because you want a good pairing
When you point out to your server that "Bass" is not an import... unless Baldwinsville, NY (outside Syracuse) has seceded from the Union.
When your friend mentions he's traveling to another state and your first thought is "who distributes there?"
When you carry your iPad to the store to look up reviews on BA.
When, after finishing your favorite of whatever,
you bury your nose in the empty glass and enjoy one last whiff.
oh another one:
when a shop owner writes notes about your opinions on various stouts in his inventory.
When the bartender at a local craft centric bar refers a new patron 's question to you for a beer they just got if they dont know enough about it...
I think we should all be honest and admit that this thread is now about Siggy125's cellar and tasting room.
Why stop now?
When you've said to yourself "its only 9%"
When your wife asks what you are going to order for dinner on the way to the restaurant because she's hungry and knows you'll spend more time looking at the tap list.
Yes that is the key - hoarder or not
When you go to a Brooklyn tap takeover with 36 taps and cant find anything to drink.
When you are completely and utterly addicted to beer, yet you're not an alcoholic.
Wait a minute... beer drinkers can be alcoholics?
When you start a Twitter account for the sole purpose of monitoring beer releases.
I may have to re-tweet this.
When your espresso has notes of Imperial Stout
And you can name which imperial stout
When you no longer have to look up the BA ratings because you have them memorized.
When you have programmed the addresses of breweries in at least five states into your car's GPS.
When you see this and worry that those beers are seeing too much light.
When given the choice of viewing this or porn... you continue to choose this.
you know you're a beer geek when you go to the local distributor and a guy with a case of Keystone puts it down and gives you a wedgie, then shoves you into a locker... and the store doesn't even have lockers.
When you instruct a couple of old ladies at a work event how to describe beers they're serving to the attendees of said event. They had no clue, neither did the attendees, so I was just doing my due diligence...right? They thanked me for my "expertise."
Every one of your Christmas presents from your wife, mother, brother and sisters is a kick ass craft beer, a gift certificate to a brewpub, or a gift certificate to a homebrew supply store.
So true, do this all the time haha
Your recycling bin is full of nothing but brown glass. And not a single one is a twist off.
When your teenage kids look at the craft beer menu in restaurants and make suggestions of your favorites that are available there.
When every glass in your cupboard has a beer logo on it.
To which I would also add... When you start refusing certain restaurant selections because you know they only serve crap beer. And you can't help but think "don't waste my time" when they mention it as a food option.
This photo is with the pull down window shade in the 'up' position.
....when you never question the Beer Advocate "Status Quo"!
That would just make you a feminine snob.
Whoa, bro! How come you haven't invited me over yet? I am like a few miles away from you. Seriously though, this room is beautiful! Nice work.
When everytime you look at this picture all you can think to yourself "man, those Stone 7th Anniversary bottles are WAY past their prime!"
When you always show up at beer festivals with a bag full of more beer
When you have bottleshares before and after a beer festival
When you're dishwasher is full of tasting glasses
When ignore 99% of the beer at a beer festival just to tick the 1% you had not had before
Separate names with a comma.
