I was sitting here and the thought occurred to me, how old is the average homebrewer. So, if you arent shy, how old are all of you??

I am 22. I have not met many homebrewers in my area, so I don't know the demographics of the hobby. It seems like it should cross generations well though. However, I do think that most homebrewers are men. Which is too bad, really. It would be cool to have a homebrew bash with gals...

I'm a 900 year old Jedi Master - doing time in the failing body of a 35 year old!

Under 30

Postby l48shark » Fri Sep 27, 2002 8:18 pm

28 last time I checked. No women in my club that actually brew anything. My wife will help me bottle, but she likes the wine better than beer. The guys in my club are a bit older than me.

Yours truly just turned 36, on 9-11. My b-day will never be the same. Due to the gray in my hair, I've been called Silver Scalp.

14 years old when Woodstock happened

That puts me at the ripe age of 47, I like what Gravity said about being 900 in a 35 year old body, I would like to be 47 in a 25 year old's body :-)

I am 30. Happy to have come of age during the micro boom days of the early mid 90's.

I feel old...

Postby Brewer2001 » Mon Sep 30, 2002 8:02 pm

I'm waiting for the new body parts.....I think the 'mind' is the first to go. I'm 45 and like Azorean wish I had a 25 year old body. I am from Brooklyn N.Y. and do remember the glory days of F& M Schaffer, Rhinegold and Ballentine ale. Rolling Rock was also a good beer until they tried to push the production levels too high.

Good brewing,

Postby Azorean Brewer » Tue Oct 01, 2002 5:46 am

Tom, Being 45 you should have gotten my meaning, I never said I wanted a new body, I said I wish I was in a 25 year old's body, preferrably a curvaceous buxom blond's body :-)~

Deal's Gap loving "Old Timer"

Postby Azorean Brewer » Tue Oct 01, 2002 6:14 am

OK, looks like I am the old timer, so you should all listen to your parents and respect your elders, you can start by each sending me a six pack of your best for me to sample and I will give you my years of experience an honest taste test, write if you need an address LOL ... Don't let the age fool you though, My 1996 Gold Wing can atest to that, has anyone ever heard of "The Tail of The Dragon" at Deal's Gap in Tenn. ? ? ? if you have then you'll know what I am talking about.

Paul.

You can see details at

http://www.tailofthedragon.com or http://dealsgap.com best motorcycle road in north America.

Beware of the Dragon ...

Happy B-Day "Cheers". We get our birthday off at my plant, so methinks I may brew!
