    Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! I'm just shy of two months as a non-smoker... and all the other reasons to not smoke never panned out for me, but this... really being able to taste beers... I think this will keep me away from ever buying another pack!

    When you're planning on moving to New Orleans, you go on and find out the distribution is worse than any other state you've lived in, but you thank God there's at least this place (and probably others) to look forward to: New Orleans area BAs: Please tell me I'm right!

    When you spend as much on a bomber of beer as on a typical bottle of wine.
    Today I paid $15 for a 750ml of this today:
    I only noticed after I looked at my receipt when leaving the liquor store. Wine: $12 & $13. Beer: $6, $10 & $15.

    Very nice!

    When we buy our first house in the near future I already have permission from my wife to setup a wet bar with a couple taps and cellar (beer & wine) in the basement. Room permitting: a pool table.

    when you not infrequently walk into a bar, read the tap list, then walk out

    when you ask the bartender to serve your beer in a specific piece of glassware you spied behind the bar

    when you're more comfortable with Julian dating than the standard mm/dd/yyyy format

    when the weather forecast matters more for your beer shipments than the rest of your life

    It's simple, you're a beer nerd when you walk in to your local shop like a man on a mission as you hastily dart toward the beer section and your eyes begin scanning at warp speed. As if you're going to find some new gem that wasn't there 24 hours ago. You realize you have had every beer that you see so you begin making executive decisions as if it determines your life. 30 minutes later, you let out a deep sigh as you make your purchase and as you leave... You feel like a f****ing boss
