I was a pretty enthusiastic home brewer for some years but have been settling for the ever-increasing range of excellent microbrews for a while.
One year when I was brewing I took a six pack to a customer's Christmas party for vendors. I offered one of my beers to another of the vendors who said he'd never had a homebrew. I poured it for him and briefly explained the brewing process. He tried it and said it was the best beer he'd ever had, where could he buy some? I reiterated that I had made it myself and it wasn't for sale and besides the one remaining six pack was set aside for my upcoming trip to Florida. He pulled out a hundred dollar bill and assured me that he REALLY wanted to buy it, so I said OK, sold to the computer vendor for $100. I drove home (only 2 miles), grabbed the last six, and returned with an IPA brewed with oak chips to simulate the oak casks used to ship original IPAs to India. That hundred bucks bought a whole bunch of good beer for trip to Florida.
