    Id probably stare down at my chest, and hallucinate a single hair growing and be yelling in my head "hairS...they said it'd put hairS on your chest!"

    I've tasted good and horrible home brews.

    A couple here in Katy Tx started a brewery called No Label brewing company and it's really taken off.
    You can buy it in most of the local restaurants and bars.
    When they first opened they'd give away free beer every Saturday,they had to put a stop to it when the few homeless in the area figured it out.
    Now it's ten bucks to get in.

    They bought an old rice dryer which is kinda cool,the locals love it.

    Bonz and I have been toying around with a similar idea.
    In Indiana it is legal to give micro brewed beer away w/o a license as long as it is consumed on the premises it is brewed.
    Currently I do give away some brewed beers, but to friends and family. One bomber bottle at a time. Illegal, but not enough for law enforcement to care.
    My biggest fear in a public beer giveaway is to be inundated with undesirables. (Undesirables is referring to anyone who has zero interest in craft beer, or ever buying any - and just want free beer)

    It was great advertising in the beginning but yeah the homeless screwed it up for everyone else.
    I dont mind paying ten bucks for five beers,and the wife rarely uses all her chips so I end up with seven,which is about all I can drink. They pack a punch!!!

    They did. Years ago.
    Think Angry Orchard, Red Dog etc.
    As well as AmBev is buying up those who will sell like Rolling Rock, Goose Island Brewery among others.
    Who, after purchasing, closed the historic brewhouses, laid everyone but a skeleton crew off. And brew in St. Louis

    American macro beer is unfortunately a lot like a great many things in our country.
    The race to mediocrity. "Be different by doing what everyone else is doing".
    In the strange world of American consumers ...

    DRINKING THIS....

    MAKES YOU COOLER THAN DRINKING THIS...

    Even though it is exactly the same thing.

    And drinking this.....

    Makes you superfly cool man... you're like the ultimate rebel. Even though it is the shittiest beer imaginable, which is exactly why people put lemons in it because it is almost always skunk because of the clear bottle.
