You're doing it wrong.
Depends on the soap you use. I have no problem with head retention in my glassware. I'm presuming you mean I should hand wash each glass individually with baking soda?
To each their own. I hand wash mine with the "beer sponge".... just an ordinary blue sponge, that LOML knows not to use on the dishes or pans. I use normal dish soap. My main reason for hand washing it to keep the nice emblems on the glasses intact. Something about bombarding them with 120 degree water and hard dishwasher detergent, for 2 hours gives me the heebie jeebies.
True, but surprisingly, theyre still pretty drinkable.
good call. I'm gonna be hosting a few bottle shares this Spring & Summer. Stay tuned.
lets see his bedroom pics please
oh my god that is awesome. Well done, sir!
...when you look at these pictures and start fantasizing about your own beer celler/tasting room conversion project.
When all of your band t-shirts from your younger days have been replaced by beer t-shirts.
When you are late posting at the end of a thread, only because you are too busy deciphering the beer codes. I'm sure these Mesopotamia, clay tablets are trying to tell me something, but so far only freshness is confirmed…
That's simply automatic. I do this, even locally, just to be sure...
I'm pretty sure your cellar is worth more than I make in a year.
When you see a beer on the shelf by a brewery you've never heard of and immediately check it for twist-off caps and dubious origin i.e. BMC pedigree.
I realized I was one last night when a friend pulled an Olde School out of the back my fridge and started to drink from the bottle. I gasped. Not because he was drinking my last one, but because he didn't pour it in a glass. I quickly remedied that. He and a few others gave me a weird look. Haha.
When your the beer buyer at a store but tell people about other stores that have hoarded some good beer.
When only 20 cases of BA Bigfoot come to Colorado and you can't get your hands on any in ruins your day/week.
When you hide the beers you just purchased from your gf not because she might drink them, but she will get mad with how much you spent.
When you take into serious consideration the order in which you drink different beers and/or eat food.
When you see a box of Samoas girl scout cookies, the "moas" part of it jumps out at you, and you start thinking about MoaS.
When you rather have a good beer than a good meal
When you are at your favorite beer bar with your non-beer geek buddy who asks, "Would I like Stone Arrogant Bastard?" And you reply, "Yes, you ordered that last time we were here (which was over a year ago) and thought it tasty."
His look of concern when he realizes you are correct sums up how everyone in your life feels about your hobby.
i actually use baking soda IN the dishwasher....
Or wedding ring
In the midst of a busy Sunday afternoon you're preoccupied with the reality of having only one Sucks left in the beer fridge.
When you don't 'like' this comment because you're bitter that he thought of it before you.
Just a heads up, when an inspector calls you in the next couple days stating he needs to do a new assessment your property for tax purposes, ignore him. He's not an inspector, its just me trying to move into your converted bedroom. To you sir, impressive. Cheers.
...when you get random phone calls from friends in the middle of the day because they're at the shop/bar and want to know your thoughts on a potential purchase...
I live 2000 miles away. I'll be there.
Pants - 0
When a line containing two or more beer geeks automatically turns into a bottle share - and you're one of them (of course).
When you have read page 1-6 of this thread and of all of these responses you relate to more than 75% of said posts.
When your son is looking at colleges, and you advise him to go to one based on the brewery nearby.
Spreadsheet?? How about the Access Application you built to keep track of your beer collection.
When you have your wife facetime you the selections in a bottle shop states away so you can have her get everything you cant get at home and smuggle in her suitcase to fly back with.
When you know youre going to drive somewhere more than an hour away and always bring a cooler just in case
when somebody serves beer in the wrong glass, at the wrong temp or starts raving about some fauve craft beer
and you start to say what you really think, but the filter ( the one that keeps you from harshly criticizing children)
kicks in and you soften your comments as not to discourage them from further exploring craft beer.
When you vow not to hoard IPA & DIPAs and you find a stack of Hopslam cases and only buy a six pack.
You know you're a beer geek when you plan a meal around a beer you bought, rather than the other way around.
Btw... Deli and cheese works best, IMO.
Went to a bar while traveling. Saw miller lite, colors lite, bud lite, other in bev and yueng ling on tap. Asked what bottles were there and shE spouted out a bunch of macros. I said, " I'll have a diet coke". Drank it and went somewhere else.
When you start getting waaaaay too serious about glassware.
When you pour Cantillon in a cake pan to make internet funnies.
Bourbon & water is my go-to in this case
