Barley, hops, yeast, water, and a whole lot of aggravation.

Making a homebrew takes time — usually about a month before it’s ready to drink. So no, the batch that I finished making 2 hours ago isn’t ready.

2. “You know Anheuser-Busch has already perfected this right?”

If you think that Anheuser-Busch is the pinnacle of beer making, then we probably weren’t going to be friends anyway.

3. “Oh, I love craft beer! Have you ever tried Blue Moon?”

Oh man! You drink wheat beer?! How hipster! Do you know who brews Blue Moon? Take a guess.

4. “Have you ever made a PBR clone?”

The ingredients alone are more expensive than buying a case of the stuff. Plus, you want to wait a month to drink a PBR you made? Get out of my house.

People are really impatient.

6. “Wouldn’t it just be easier to buy beer?”

Yes, it is! However, homebrewers like to try something different. We’re usually the guys drinking smoked beer, or beer brewed with coffee or brains. We like pushing the envelope. We’re like the Steve Jobs of beer.

7. “Can you make me a watermelon/blueberry/honeysuckle beer?”

Look, we love weird requests. And they sometimes work (put peanut butter in it!). But as much as we love trying ingredients we’ve never tried before, some shit just doesn’t work. If you want to see how the flavor profile of a pale ale changes with honeysuckle, maybe you should try brewing it yourself?

8. “Its ok, I’ll just drink it straight from the bottle.”

Oh, that’s fine. Let me know the next time you make a pie. I’ll just cram my face right into the pan, no worries. WOULDN’T WANT TO DIRTY A PLATE!

9. “Have you ever tried a beer with [insert completely random, terrible ingredient idea here]?”

Chances are, if you wouldn’t try cooking with it, I won’t try brewing with it.

Yes, sometimes a serious brew rig looks like it might be able to produce enough blue stuff to keep Arizona tweaking for a decade. But you know how you can tell the difference? Meth doesn’t smell this good.

12. “Can I come over for your next brew day?”

Of course you can. Just be ready to stand around and watch me wash/sanitize for hours. Yeah, there’s a lot of standing around.

13. “What do you like better: Coors, Miller, or Bud?”

If you think we’re drinking a Coors while we’re watching a Belgian Tripel mash out, you’re wrong.

Why no, I’ve never heard of a Samuel Adams Brewery! What do they make? Vice Presidential beer?

At that point, wouldn’t you just want a nice glass of scotch?
