    North Carolina
    I have been home brewing for 25 years. My wife gave me a homebrew kit for Christmas the year our first child, my daughter Samantha, was born.
    I can pretty much say, that I have "spilled more beer than you've drank". (Thanks to Kevin for the term).
    So, the fact that I have been drinking for so long and brewing for so long, I will say that I am not a fan of where the craft brewing industry may be going. Too many beer "snobs" acting like wine "snobs".
    I was weened on Iron City Beer.
    I have been brewing for 25 years.
    I am a BJCP National judge.
    I still drink Pabst when the price and setting is right.
    I brew session beers because I like to drink all day.
    I converted a cube cooler with big tires to take my home brew to the beach.
    I mix beers all the time.
    My latest is adding a teaspoon of bourbon to a porter for a "bourbon barrel beer". More control, more fresh bourbon, and most importantly, much, much, much simpler.
    That is my rant for now.
